Summer Beauty Essentials

Ladies, get ready for a big dose of beauty info. We all love the summer and I've got a few tips and tricks to make your beauty routine a little easier and fun!  

My name is Renee Bruinsma and by trade I'm a professional make-up artist. I'm a total product junkie and maybe I work a little on the side to support my beauty habits ;)

Here's what I'm currently obssessed with this summer:

I have searched high and low for the perfect face SPF and I've found it!  It's non-greasy, lightweight and makeup glides perfectly overtop of this gem. Available at Holt Renfrew, The Bay and Murale.

Who wants soft, silky skin? Ya... I know you do. These salts are all the way from the dead sea and they will revitalize your senses and moisturize your skin. Available at Pender Medi Spa.

Let's talk about self tanning products. If you're like me you've tried at least 5 over the years and I find I always end up so stinky and looking like an oompa loompa! Look no further. I found the PERFECT, most natural, non-streaky, easy to apply product. It's a mousse, so you can apply it with their mit and you will get the perfect bronzed application every time! Available at Kiss and Makeup and Beauty Mark. 

This is a great shade for every day, all year round. It goes perfectly with every outfit and always looks like you've just had a fresh manicure!  Available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Who wants a BIG dose of anything anti-aging? This BB cream perfects the skin while you're wearing it, minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pores, fights breakouts, calms sensitive skin, is packed with anti-oxidants AND is paraben and oil-free! Wear it alone, under makeup, over makeup or mixed with your foundation.  I am obsessed with this product and you can see why!  Available at select Shoppers Drug Marts, Murale and Sephora. 

Want perfect, bronzed, glowing skin?  Try this new powder made by Stila.  It's truly amazing formula contains jojoba butter and vitamin E so your skin will love you for wearing it!  Available at select Shoppers Drug Marts, Murale and Sephora.

To complete your summer look, a maxi-dress is a must, along with a wide brimmed hat and some beautiful flip-flops.  But not just any flip-flops, I'm loving Tkeeks in "Opal," as they are a beautiful nude shade and will match any outfit.  

Last but not least jewelry!  I am in love with KV Bijou's Emily and Arie bracelets layered with a Lagoon ring, so beautiful!!

Thanks for reading ladies, enjoy your beautiful summer looking a little more beautiful ;)

Till next time...
