Winter hats and coats keeps your hair pinned up. Cold temperatures dry out your hair, so for festival season let your locks free. Allow your hair to be stress free from all hats, bows, pins and enjoy the warm weather too. Up the game for lustrous free hair by using a moisturizing conditioner, like Mielle Organics Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner, every wash and doing a weekly deep condition hair mask.

Summer is for music, food and cute clothes! Why waste time with chipped nails. Enjoy festivals, traveling across country and seeing friends and family. Opt for bright colors with longer wear like no-chip manicures or a Vinylux manicure if no-chip isn’t for you.

Smoke it out…Your eyes I mean!

If you haven’t already….master that day to evening smoky eye. When summer days turn into summer nights don’t worry about being washed out. Leave the house in the morning sporting a bronze or rose gold smoky that transitions ever so nicely into the late evenings. Add a nude lip and you’ll look like a glowing goddess into the evening.

Keep it Clean

Stay cool honey! (

I will be the first to admit that the sun and I don’t mix. When I’m out and about all day I always like to carry a hand fan to keep cool and ward off any sweat that may be festering. You’re bound to feel the heat during the next big fest, so come prepared. The solution is blotting paper, not tissue! It will help absorb oil and sweat without leaving residue or removing makeup. They’re typically Small, thin and compact and will fit anywhere you want to slip them and best of all are extremely inexpensive. And also alcone wipes. I’m always iffy about wipes but when I’m out and sweat is involved I’ll reach for my beauty wipes to pre-cleanse and help avoid breakouts.

Cool off & Refresh

Misting spray, toner, tonic or whatever you call it, grab your favorite and keep it nearby during hot summer festivals! It balances your skin, while re-hydrating, refreshing, and waking you up.
