Favourites Friday #75: Prepping for Summer

After a long and miserable winter here in Portland, we’re finally starting to see some sun for more than a few hours. Which is fantastic, considering that the first day of summer is in a month.

75

To celebrate, I’ve been starting my prep for what products will be my go-to for the hottest months. Between waterfront festivals, patio dinners with friends, and lazy Saturdays in the park, it’s important to look my best and feel comfortable no matter what the heat says.

Summer Prep: A Favourites Friday

1. L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

Having defined, voluminous lashes during the summer is important, but not having smudges under the eye is even better. I love this mascara because it coats each lash while providing volume right where it’s needed without being heavy. And it doesn’t smudge during the day {even when you sweat running errands} and washes off easily with remover. Tip: Before applying, twist the brush around in a tissue to remove product, which avoids clumps while still providing the volume and definition.

2. Warby Parker Jennings Sunglasses

It’s important to keep your eyes safe from those harmful rays, so why not do so with some gorgeous prescription sunglasses? I bought these a few years back and they continue to be my favourite sunglasses. They’re classic, yet interesting, and the mirrored lenses give that ‘cool’ vibe.

3. Steve Madden Donddi Sandal

Summer is for sandals, and a pair that goes with everything is essential. From the classic shape to the simple leather, these sandals will go with everything from your flirtiest dress to your comfiest jeans.

4. Cool Moon Ice Cream

After dinner with a friend Wednesday night in the Pearl, we decided to venture out and grab ice cream. And Cool Moon Ice Cream is now my favourite spot to cool down. With all-natural flavours I’ve never seen – ginger cookie is amazing! – and a setup that allows you to sit and chat, I can see myself coming here for a sweet treat from June to September.

5. Cetaphil Dermacontrol Moisturizer SPF 30

Those with oily, fair skin – rejoice! This lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer helps to absorb oils, leaving skin matte, and provides sun protection. It’s perfect for those long summer days in the sun. Two weeks into using this and I’ve already noticed how much longer my makeup doesn’t shine, even after heavy duty errands.
