    So the Fourth of July has passed and that means it's officially summer. I know one of the hardest things to deal with during these hot summer days is keeping your makeup in tact. One thing I want you to know is LESS IS MORE. As much as we ladies looooove and adore makeup there is no denying the fact that still clogs the pores, making it difficult for the skin to breathe. Add some sun to the mix and we have a messy situation. There is nothing cute about having makeup dripping down your face. Would you believe me if I said you only need five products for a full face look this summer? Well here they are my friends. You can use whatever brands you may prefer but all the items highlighted are very affordable and can be found in your local drug store. 

 Instead of a foundation try a BB creamIt's not as heavy, gives the face a smooth finish, and has SPF to protect your skin from the sun. BB cream is a little sheerer than foundation but applying concealer over your blemished areas will give you the coverage you want.

2.BRONZER (Physician's Formula)
Give your self that sun-kissed look by applying bronzer to your cheeks,t zone, and upper chest area. When the sun hits your skin you are going to look like a goddess. For edge more glow add a highlighter to the under eye area for a lifted and contoured look.

(Sonia Kashuk)
Use a pink, peach or orange blush for a summery flush. These tones look great on all shades and give the skin a feminine and natural touch. 

Find a vibrant lip stick or gloss similar to the shade of your blush. It's perfect for summer because it's 
bright,youthful, and fun.

Fill in your eyebrows with a pencil or powder to define their shape.  This step is a very important part of giving your face that clean, finished look.

I hope these tips come in handy. If you know any other tricks or have any products you think are essential to the summer beat comment below. Enjoy the last half of the work week my loves!!!

Hello Everyone,

HAPPY JULY! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. I definitely did. I spent time with family and friends, went to a few parties, and ate some really good BBQ. I'm just really excited that summer is finally here.

I know starting the week after a long holiday can be hard but this week it didn't seem so bad because I received an awesome package from Warby Parker in the mail a couple of days ago and I just couldn't wait to share it with you guys.

Warby Parker is a great eyewear company that makes very cool seeing and sunglasses. They are especially fantastic because with every pair you purchase another is donated to someone in need. Eye care is definitely very important so it is great that Warby Parker is giving the opportunity for all people to see better and brighter.

Sometimes finding the perfect glasses can be tricky. You think you like a pair but what if they don't fit your face they way you would like. Or maybe you want to try a new frame design but don't know if it's exactly your style. Warby Parker has a great option called the Home Try-On program perfect for helping you make the best decision for you and your eyes. How does it work?

Step 1: Visit

Step 2: Choose five pairs you would like to try on

Step 3: Once received in 2-3 business days you have FIVE DAYS to take each pair out for a test drive. Don't be afraid to ask friends in person and on social media about their opinion on your frames. Use tag #WarbyHomeTryOn for their input too!

Step 4: Decide on which pairs are a no or a go and order your brand new frames on

Step 5: Send all the glasses back in their original packaging with the shipping label they provide. Then sit back and relax because your new frames are on their way.

The only frames that cannot be selected are those from the Karlie Kross collection but don't worry,there are plenty of fabulous designs in the summer collection to pick from. 

Here are a few pairs I choose for my Home Try-On and of course I had to give you some summer style to go along with it.  I had a great time looking through these shades so I hope you enjoy The Book of Looks.
