Living in Texas has given me a whole new set of sympathy for the Wicked Witch of the West. I mean, I completely understand how she must have felt when she was meeeeeellllttttingggg, meeeellllttting. Ironically, my skin tends to look about as hydrated as the Sahara. I plump it up with a gentle hydrating cleanser in the AM and PM. Toning at night with some witch hazel keeps the greasies away. For the most part, liquid foundations are a no-go - I sweat them off in T minus 5 seconds. Instead, sunscreen and a bit of bronzer take its place. I opt for a simple eye - just a tiny bit of liner and a waterproof mascara - paired with a bright lip. Humidity-busting hair spray keeps my imitation beachy waves in place (whine sesh about how I miss the beach in a later post), and nails in bright, punchy patterns are the best for summer. I really like those nail polish strips - no dry time, and basically fudge-proof. That gets an A+ in my book.

The best part? All my faves are at your local Walgreens or CVS, and won't make you choose between eye cream or paying your utilities bill for the month.

  2. I'm a CeraVe fan, too! My dermatologist had me buy it and I'm hooked. I also love that I can get a giant bottle for $12.99 and just put it in pretty soap dispensers.
