The Lipstick League has declared this the unofficial start of beach season and now wants to know: what are some of your favourite summer beauty products? And of course, I can't seem to resist an opportunity to preach, so I'ma choose a sunscreen photo for the post.
I don't really have a favourite summer beauty product. Obviously SPF is a must, but all year round, not just for summer (here's how to reapply sunscreen over makeup). I could go with bronzer, but I wear that all year long as well. My fragrance choices aren't season-specific either; I lean toward zippy citrus with a waft of incense in cold weather as well as warm.
There isn't even a waterproof mascara I can hold up as a melty-temps fave. My devotion to the regular Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect is eternal. (And I've tried the waterproof version; it sucks.)
Well, so what if I haven't got a favourite? I'd love to hear about yours!
