Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part One


The unofficial start of Summer 2017 will occur in just a few days with the kickoff of Memorial Day weekend on May 29! To celebrate the start of summer, many of us will flock to the beach or chill out lakeside and this usually sets the tone for our summertime experience. The weather has been predictably unpredictably with miserable humidity one week and then almost fall like chill the next. This time of year, you just never know what the weather is going to be like, so best to be prepared for anything. Ahead of a myriad of beauty disasters, and general discomfort, Team TME set out to gather up the beauty and grooming must haves for the upcoming season.



Skin Care: For a day spent outdoors, don’t you dare forget your sunscreen and lip balm! Our current favorites; jane iredale Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen ($47 – available in Translucent, Golden and Tanned) this chemical-free dry sunscreen for the face, body, and scalp nourishes, protects and soothes the skin; Dermaflage ScarScreen SPF 30 ($25) is ideal for use following cosmetic procedures; PCA Skin Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 ($42) is quick-absorbing and lightweight. For Lips, we are loving Sun Bum SPF 30 Lip Balm ($3.99 – available in six flavors) that offers added protection of Aloe and Vitamin E keeping your pout pretty and jane iredale Lip Drink SPF 15 ($15 – available in four shades) that leaves lips feeling moisturized, protected, and refreshingly scented with a hint of color.



Whether or not you opt to wear makeup you need a good skin care regimen. Our current favorites; Golden Door Soothing Cleansing Foam and Golden Door Soothing Toner ($64 each); boscia Tsubaki Glotion ($38) or Sent√© Daily Repair Complex with SPF 30 ($130) moisturizers for daytime and Junetics Pure Energy Night Cream ($109). All of the aforementioned brands are TME Must-Haves for Summer 2017, however Olay has just launched a few of the brand’s cult favorites with SPF 30 -- Olay Complete ($12.99), Olay Total Effects ($21.99), and Olay PROx Age Repair Lotion ($47.99) -- that are absolutely worth trying this summer. To wash away the day it’s Jason Nourishing Foaming Shower Oil ($11) and Olay Fresh Outlast in Energizing Lime ($6.99). Right out of the shower, Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Energizing Antioxidant Body Lotion ($24)!



Cosmetics: We’re usually telling you to keep it simple when you’re chillin’ outdoors. A little CC cream, beach tint, mascara, lip tint and you’re good to go. That truly is our go-to style for summer. This summer, we’ve found a few products that really sizzle and are worth trying for a more sophisticated look. So, we’re including our absolute go-tos along with a few fresh must-tries! 

The Big Chill - Our current favorites … Golden Door Zen CC Cream SPF 50 ($58) -- let’s just say that everyone on Team TME is calling this the number one must-have for Summer 2017! Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek ($24 – available in four shades), and Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Waterproof Mascara ($19).

Melt The Pavement: If you’re looking to have your base last, all day and night, then you have to try Laura Geller Spackle Treatment Soothing Make-Up Primer ($32). As we’ve named Golden Door Zen CC Cream the number one must-have, we would have to say that La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($195 – available in four shades) the number two must-have with its buildable coverage. Mirabella Visionary Longwear Eyeshadow ($19) isn’t going to crease and looks beautiful all day or night, Charlotte Tilbury Cara D. Brow Lift Eyebrow Pencil ($30) is amazing and takes minutes to shape and define, jane iredale bronzer refills ($44 each) – these three bronzer quads can be swept across eyes, cheeks and lips to contour and highlight for a luxurious look that’s made in the shade! Of course, you have to grab the NEW rose gold slim compact ($18) for on the go, rounding out our menagerie of makeup … LAUREN+VANESSA Lip Stick ($24) with lots of shades and amazing cushion!

We found so many amazing products that we believe are must-haves for Summer 2017. Did you really think that we would forget the guys or leave you in the lurch with your hair? Jamais! We’ll be back with "Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part Two" tomorrow!
