Heat Wave Beauty Survival Tips

With the third heat wave having just passed, and more certainly to come before Summer 2019 is over, we need some solutions for the most trying beauty problems! Conventional makeup, skincare and hair care aren't going to cut it when the temperatures offer up nothing but shine, stick and frizz. Happily, there are some brilliant weatherproofing products that save the day... and your beauty look. Here TME gives you the hot weather beauty kit for your skin, hair and nails to see you through any hot weather perfectly calm, cool and collected.

Anti-Shine Essentials
Keep your skin cool from the moment you put on your moisturizer. Next, find a UV protector and primer in one -- Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting SP35 Sunscreen protects, mattifies and keeps your makeup place. Switch from foundation to a lighter cream with skincare benefits like a BB Cream (more coverage) or a CC Cream for a sheer finish. We love IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+.

Keep blotting papers like e.l.f.Shine Eraser Blotting Papers on hand for shine control rather than extra face powder, which can cake. This is actually a staple anytime of year. And a great tip to freshen up your makeup without loading on base is to spray a facial mist like jane iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray and use a buffing brush to blend your existing base in again.

Hair Saviors
While a ponytail is always good for a heat wave the look should be updated and we have the perfect how-to from Natasha Sunshine-Antonioni! Another tip is to give your hair a cold rinse post-shampoo, not just to keep you cool but to close the hair cuticle and help prevent hot-weather frizz. 

Fight The Frizz (and win) - If high humidity levels are sending your follicles into a frenzy, keep a vial of oil in your handbag for an instant de-frizz solution. We've been using a tiny drop of MoroccanOil Original Hair Treatment to keep out tresses tamed.

Super Easy Self Tan
A self tan that works fast, but oh so subtly, is essential for when you're caught off guard. St Tropez GradualTan In Shower Lotion works in three minutes to gently glow up your skin over the course of the next few hours, so that by the time the midday sun is out, your sun-kissed glow will be too.

Beauty Brands That Give On Giving Tuesday

Have you recovered from Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Well, get ready for Giving Tuesday! Today, we're reminded of the true spirit of this season and we're given a super easy way to participate. What began as a "give and get" avenue for businesses and consumers to donate to great causes during the holidays, has turned into a social media movement. And fortunately, this year many of our favorite beauty brands are donating up to 100% of their profits. Does it get any better?!?

Charlotte Tilbury - Make any purchase online and Charlotte Tilbury will donate 15% of its profits to Women For Women, an organization that provides resources and support for women living in poverty. Pictured: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow in Light to Medium ($68).

Purlisse - This skin-care set of eight products is an amazing deal on its own. But on Giving Tuesday, 100%  of the profits from the kit will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, an organization helping women in cancer treatment feel empowered. Purlisse Skin Survival Kit ($76).

Lush - This cult-favorite hand and body lotion donates 100% of its sales to supporting human rights, animal protection, and environment conservation efforts. Lush works with dozens of charities — from BreakOUT! to Keepers Of The Water Council. Lush Charity Pot ($7.95) .

Any woman who has naturally curly hair has struggled at one point or another when attempting to “tame” their lovely locks. We know this unhappiness first hand and have suffered through some seriously bad hair days. It’s funny how we’ve wished for naturally straight hair, and how others have wanted our naturally curly hair … perhaps believing that curly hair is a “wash-n-go” deal. So completely untrue. It’s a year-round battle to keep those spirals looking tame.

Moroccanoil Body Collection Review

While many are familiar with the Moroccanoil brand for its superior hair care products, some may not be as familiar with the Moroccanoil Body Collection. The brand was at the forefront of introducing consumers to argan oil for our hair and recently launched a line of body care products based on the same infusions. Checking a sampling from the line, TME is sharing our experience with key products from the Moroccanoil Body Collection.

Behold Moroccanoil Body Buff ($42), which is made with naturally exfoliating orange peel; this is an energizing, daily-use scrub that gently polishes away dead skin cells. Body Buff is paraben-free and offers the added benefits of argan oil blended with Vitamin E and nourishing avocado, grape seed, safflower, sesame and sweet almond oils rejuvenate skin with intense moisture.

Moroccanoil Body Butter ($52) is a luxurious, concentrated body cream that absorbs quickly upon application without leaving behind a greasy residue. This too is paraben-free and offers antioxidant-rich argan oil, shea, cocoa and mango butters melt together to deliver nourishment, while avocado, olive, squalane and pomegranate oils instantly soften and nurture skin.

Moroccanoil offers Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil ($50), which can be used on the skin, nails and hair. The price point of this premium grade argan oil was quite pleasing and makes this luxe product easily affordable to all. The non-greasy oil provides multiple conditioning benefits for the face, body and hair making the multi-use product an intelligent investment. It glides on like silk and absorbs quickly for a head-to-toe moisturizing and pampering experience. And although Moroccanoil’s signature scent is delicious, Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil is fragrance-free for which works exceptionally well when dealing with sensitive skin.

New to Moroccanoil, and rather essential for the mind, is the Moroccanoil Candle with Glass Vase. Moroccanoil Candle ($52) is crafted in France using premium European wax to softly illuminate and fill the space with the fragrance beloved by so many, creating a warm and soothing ambiance. Many of us won’t be able to jet over to the Mediterranean at whim, but oh how this candle captures the pure essence of the sand, ocean and sky! The Moroccanoil Candle is well crafted, offers a cotton wick that burns for 50 hours and the beautiful double wall glass vase is perfect for storing small personal items once the candle has burned through.

The Moroccanoil Body Collection is available online at Moroccanoil and Spa Nordstrom, as well as luxury salons and spas nationwide.

Moroccanoil Body Soufflé Review

Hello again lovelies! Many of us know about Moroccanoil Hair Care products and how amazing the argan oil infused hair care products are. But did you know that early this year, Moroccanoil introduced a line of body care products?

Since I have Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream in my beauty arsenal, I had to find out if Moroccanoil for Body was as extraordinary as their hair care products. In the Moroccanoil for Body product line is: Moroccanoil Body Buff, Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Treatment, Moroccanoil Hand Cream, Moroccanoil Cleansing Bar and Moroccanoil Body Soufflé.

The Makeup Examiner got her hands on Moroccanoil Body Soufflé ($52.00 USD 6.4 oz) and I’m in love! As many of readers know, I tend to have issues with dry skin on my elbows. This rich formula of anti-oxidant argan oil and creamy shea butter transformed my skin the moment that I applied it.

Aside from the fact that Moroccanoil Body Soufflé is extraordinary for the skin, it has the most delicious scent. I opted not to use my signature Chanel perfume. Yep that was a first, as I love my Allure, but the soufflé really smells THAT good! Moroccanoil Body Soufflé is a luxurious treatment that is now part of my beauty arsenal. Will the Makeup Examiner be trying out the other body products? Yes she will and when I do, you will get the 411. Moroccanoil for Body is available at the Moroccanoil website and select luxury retailers.
