Since we’ve moved to Dc we’ve had to adapt our hair and makeup for our clients in this hot and humid weather. here are some tips and tricks that have helped us out.
The Key for makeup to work in this kind of weather is to make it water proof and to use a lesser amount because you dont want it to melt off your face, Here are some of my favorite products. For the lips i love long wear lipsticks check out http://www.makeupforever.com/ and tinted balms like http://www.clinique.com/, for the cheeks i love cream blush and cream bronzers. i love tinted moisturizers, BB creams www.smashbox.com & CC creams www.clinique.com and the best way to apply them is with the Beauty blender http://www.beautyblender.net , For the eyes i love long wear eyeliners check out www.sigmabeauty.com eye primer and water proof mascara. the trick is to wear less make up but make it all water proof or water resistant. a good primer also helps it last longer smashbox comsetics has a great oil free photofinish primer.

These are great summer looks they are very versatile. you can start with beach weaves and end up with a messy top knot or bun. to add volume & texture to your beachy weaves add Bumble & Bumble dry shampoo to the roots to help absorb the oils and moister http://www.bumbleandbumble.com also bumble & Bumble has a great surf spray that give great texture and a natural beach weave. Or start with a side or low fish tail braid and to switch it up wrap it around in a low or side bun and pin it… its that easy.
Dont forget to protect your hair and scalp when you are at the pool or beach Rene furterer has a great summer line that will help you during the beach or pool and after sun exposure treatments.
