How To Wear Denim In The Summer 

Summer temperatures in Northern California can range from cool by the Bay, to way too hot inland.  San Francisco summers are known to be on the cool side.  If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the City, an oversized denim jacket can be your cozy best friend. Here’s how I styled my denim jacket for a summer afternoon in the City.


Keeping Your Skin Flawless This Summer

My summer makeup is minimal.  This makes having flawless skin even more important.  I make sure that my skin is clean and well moisturized.  Also, I believe that diet plays a huge factor in whether I’m breaking out or oily.  Here are some of my go to skin products.
Keeping your skin clean is key.  After long, sweaty days in the sun, I love using this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to take my makeup off.  It’s SUPER cleansing, great on sensitive skin, and leaves my face fresh!

Hydration is very important in maintaining glowing Summer skin. My favorite moisturizer is Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. The best part about this product is its various uses.  It’s an amazing moisturizer, primer and can be used as a hydrating mask. How’s that for a multi-tasking product!

Rosewater spray is my new obsession! Not only is it hydrating, but it acts as a great skin setting spray that leaves my makeup look dewey.  It’s also a great product to throw into your travel bag for a quick hydration during dry flights or a refreshing pick me up at the beach.
Keeping your skin protected is KEY. That’s why I absolutely love the IT Cosmetics CC Cream! Not only does this CC cream provide sufficient coverage, it has SPF 50 which protects my pale skin from harmful summer rays.
My final product is the Benefit Hoola Bronzer! I use this product on a daily basis to give my skin that summer glow.  No time for a tanning session?  Your skin will thank you in a few years.  Fake that summer glow with the Benefit Hoola Bronzer.
