Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part Two


Hey! Before you run off to parts known and unknown to kick off what is going to be the best summer ever, we wanted to make sure that you had a whisper about the best beauty and men’s grooming essentials for Summer 2017. Check out “Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part One” and read on for even more products that are going to make this season sizzle!


For The Guys: TME has always had a really strong male readership. We love that! And it was a specific endeavor on the part of Yvonne to bring the guys into the fold. We still find it kinda cute that the guys can be a little shy about asking questions. Don’t be! You deserve to pamper yourselves just as much as the ladies.

Our current favorites just for our guys … L’Occitane’s Cade Collection ($65) - rich with woody notes of juniper, sandalwood, pink pepper and rosemary, this set includes Cade Shaving Cream, Cade Shower Gel for Hair and Body and Cade After-Shave Balm. L’Occitane’s Mer & Mistral Collection ($75) – is bursting with zesty and sweet citrus, along with rosemary, pine and cypress! This is such a fresh and clean fragranced collection that had every member of Team TME in complete agreement that you need this for Summer 2017! The Mer & Mistral Collection includes Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel and Body Lotion. If you haven’t gotten one of Harry’s Shave Sets, treat yourself. A few years ago, Yvonne gave a Harry’s Razor to her “has everything, needs nothing” brother and he hasn’t used another brand since. Team TME’s Harry Pick; Harry’s Daily Face Wash ($7) and Harry’s Truman Razor Set ($15) that includes Truman Razor Handle, Foaming Shave Gel, 3 Blade Cartridges, and Travel Blade Cover. Rounding out our picks for the guys is the Evolutionman Sport Guy Kit ($80) that includes Nu Noir Face & Body Wash, Moisture Protect SPF 20, Lip Balm SPF 15, EVMAN Sport Bottle, and EVMAN Square Dopp Kit Bag.



Lovely Locks: Wouldn’t it be amazing if the summer breezes didn’t blow up our hair? Sun at the beach, chlorine poolside, humidity … oh vey! Before you resign yourself to donning that hat that you bought for Coachella, Team TME has a few other options for controlling unruly summertime hair.

Sun and After Sun Hair Care: Phyto Plage Protective Sun Veil ($30) – this lightweight sun mist protects hair and guards color from UV damage or Macadamia Professional Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil ($20) with its delicious coconut cream scent, this pre-sun treatment spray shields hair from harmful rays. When you’re done playing in the sun, Macadamia Professional After Sun Leave-In Repair ($20) is perfect, as it absorbs instantly and helps nourish summer hair.

Wash It Out: There are so many shampoos and conditioners, but a few new ones that we are loving for the summer are the TRESemmé Bontanique Collection that includes TRESemmé Bontanique Shampoo and Conditioner ($5.99 each) which are infused with coconut milk and aloe vera.  There is also Macadamia Professional Endless Summer Sun & Surf Shampoo and Conditioner ($20 each) that keeps hair protected against UV rays while you’re soaking up the sun … and against chlorine and salt while you’re splashing around in the pool and ocean. Our final recommendation is Phyto Plage After-Sun Rehydrating Hair & Body Shampoo ($24), which is the perfect one-step cleansing gel to wash away sand, salt, and chlorine from hair, leaving it deeply moisturized and super-soft.



Stylin’: Beachy waves are a timeless summer look. Actually, we saw a lot of beach waves during Fashion Week. The relaxed gentle wave seems to fit just about everyone – no matter face shape or hair length … and even hair texture. Beach or “Boho” waves are just as appropriate for the office as for the beach. To achieve the look, it begins with the correct styling products. Our current favorites; ALTERNA Haircare Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray ($22) and the BEACHWAVER Pro ($199.99), an innovative professional rotating curling iron invented by celebrity hairstylist and TME favorite Sarah Potempa. If you’re looking for volume, Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist ($28)! 

Protect and Hold: Of course your only option for beautiful summer hair is not bound to beach waves. Peruse our Summer Beauty section for hairspiration and the tools for achieving those easy styles are plentiful. Our current favorites; Kérastase L'incroyable Blowdry ($40) to complete protect your locks; Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complex ($58), Phyto Phytolisse Ultra Glossing Finishing Serum ($30), Alterna Bamboo Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($25), and Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Texture Finishing Spray ($28). For on the go, we love Bosley Pro BosRenew Volumizing Dry Shampoo ($19) and Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($25).



The Tools: Anything that makes our lives easier is a major plus, especially when it comes to our hair or makeup during the summer. Perhaps, these two collections maybe oddly paired but we loved these so much that we had to mention them to our favorite people … our readers! Artis Fluenta 9 Brush Set ($450) and the invisibobble Original Secret Garden Collection ($25), which is a limited edition collection of hair rings that are perfect for a sleek ponytail or pinless chignon.

Have a safe and amazing holiday weekend! ~xo Team TME

We may not have the perfect genes to match our favorite celebs, but we can certainly achieve glam style with their favorite products. From Amy Schumer and Priscilla Faia to Alyssa Milano and Chrissy Teigen … check out what these lovely ladies having been using to get their Red Carpet looks!




To achieve those awesome Boho textured waves Amy Schumer and Priscilla Faia have been loving PHYTO Paris Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray ($30). Flat hair reaches new heights. Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray lifts hair at the roots while plumping each strand to create touchable, lasting body. The addition of wheat proteins and amino acids work together to create allover fullness and bounce that’s never stiff or sticky.




Alyssa Milano has cast a spell on her skin with the TataHarper Moisturizing Mask ($115) and for absolute skin recovery overnight this is a TME favorite. This rich mask treatment provides maximum hydration and long-lasting moisture to even the most dehydrated, stressed skin. A proprietary Moisture Molecule Complex infuses the skin with biocompatible Hyaluronic Acid to promote deep hydration and a youthful cushion. This treatment helps protect skin from moisture loss, delivering a dramatically replenished feel and restoring a dewy luminosity.




Chrissy Teigen is one of the most stunning women and for her luscious locks she’s been using the BEACHWAVER S1 ($129) to create voluminous gorgeous waves.

Fall Back Into Beauty Fall 2015 Beauty Must Haves




Summer 2015 was definitely one for the history books. But with Fall 2015 officially beginning today, September 23, it’s time to say goodbye to the beach and hello to all of the stunning fall hues! Did you notice that all things “Pumpkin Spice” have remerged? Yum! So kicking into high-gear, again, Team TME went on an expedition to find the go-to, must-have beauty products that will get you ready for the cooler weather ahead … and do so in style.



Hair Care: Rejuvenating our locks after fun in the sun, and managing our hair, can be quite the endeavor as the weather cools down. PHYTO Phytokératine Repairing Shampoo ($22) and PHYTO Phytokératine Extrême Exceptional Mask ($59) are full of amazingly restorative and nourishing fabulousness for your locks, but do not contain Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates. To keep those locks locked, we’re loving ECRU NY Silk Texturizing Balm ($28), Volumizing Silk Mist ($24) and Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX ($22.95) PHYTO and ECRU NY are cruelty-free!



Skin Care: Fess up … you still don’t have a solid skincare regimen! Okay, we’re not pointing any fingers – who are we to judge? We just want you to know that your skin will be with you for your entire life and eventually even the best of concealers will not be able to hid years of neglect. For Fall 2015, Team TME is very into Davines, Tata Harper Skin Care and Peter Lamas.

For an all over body rejuvenation, we pick Davines OI Body Wash ($25) and Tata Harper Smooth Body Scrub ($58). Out of the shower, our pick is Tata Harper Fortifying Body Lotion ($68).

Of course you can’t ignore your face! Begin and end your day with Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Cleanser ($24). Peter Lamas Nourishing Buriti Oil Moisturizer ($36) and once-per-week Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub ($28). Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum ($185), Tata Harper Be Fierce Lip Care ($24) and Tata Harper Rejuvenating Hand Cream ($48) are absolute must-haves for fall and WINTER 2015!

Now that you have your hair, body, and face all prepped you need the hot products for Fall 2015! Oh, and these will take you through Winter 2015 too!

Cosmetics: Out with old, in with the new and we’ve found a few new products that you should check out this season. Speaking of out with the old, now is a perfect time to do Fall cleaning and discard that old makeup!



We absolutely fell in love with jane iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($48) a while ago and Team TME isn’t changing up for the season. Smooth Affair has anti-aging properties that even skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores and increase luminosity. Plus, it’s the best primer that we’ve found thus far.

Moving on to foundation, we’re really liking CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation ($11.30 – available in 5 shades) and worn by the stunning Sofia Vergara at Sunday night’s Emmys!

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint ($35 – available in six shades) does double-duty when you’re trying to get out the door and this new product is 100% natural & nontoxic Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint delivers a more modern beauty experience, by combining lush natural pigments with the latest in anti-aging skincare technology.



NARS Pro Palettes are the first offering in a line of products designed with the professional makeup artist community in mind, but that doesn’t have to stop you from grabbing one! With two size options of the NARSPro Palettes (Large Palette, $18 and Small Palette, $14) and over 64 refill shades ($18 - $27 each), the opportunity to mix and match different shades of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzer, and pressed powders is endless.

More for the eyes … Mirabella Beauty just launched its Jewel Thief Collection and you’ll want to grab their Eye Palettes ($48 each) in Lavender Larceny and Diamond Deceit, as well as a Mirabella Velvet Lip Pencil in Wanted ($25).

Beauty ADDICTS offers up a few Fall Musts Haves starting with Effortless Eyes Eyeliner ($17.50 - Five custom shades) that are made from vegetable waxes, which provide a long-lasting wear.  Also From Beauty ADDICTS is Show Off Mascara ($22). This mascara rocks! With its unique formula you get volume, length and curl with Argan Oil to condition and protect. The curved brush hugs the natural eye shape to coat every lash while fanning and feathering. No clumps, no flakes, no smudges! Comes off effortlessly with a gentle cleanser.



As for lips, red is out and brown is in. Yeah, we never thought that we’d write that. However, it’s true. Brown has been the overlooked color and it is smokin’ hot for Fall and Winter! TME shared this new trend in “Celebrity Beauty Alert For Fall 2015,” which you can work with Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Matte Lipstick in Chocolate ($25), Almay’s Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick in Nude-Medium ($6.99), or Revlon’s Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Snapdragon ($8.99).



You will, of course, need a few tools for which to apply your makeup. There probably aren’t too many makeup brushes that we haven’t seen and tried. So, you’ll have to trust us when we tell you that you’ll want to invest in Artis brushes. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products that is 100% cruelty-free. The brushes are packaged in a beautiful velvet gift box with satin lining, and close using a flap with magnetic closure. The inner tray is removable so the box can be repurposed. The Artis Fluenta Collection can be purchased individually or in sets of 3 ($105), 5 ($190) or 9 ($400).
