Summer Beauty Routine

My routine always changes a little when transitioning from winter to summer. I posted about this last year here. I'm still using the Mary Kay Oil-Free moisturizer and Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder this summer but I've also added a few summer cosmetics into the mix. This summer beauty kit by Cargo is like the one stop shop of all things water-resistant and summery. 
The Los Cabos Resort Collection bag includes the following:

  • Water-Resistant Blush in Los Cabos
  • Water-Resistant Bronzer
  • Swimmable Eye Liner Pencil in Charcoal
  • Better-than-Waterproof Mascara
  • Lipgloss in Vegas Strip
  • and super cute makeup bag with snap and zipper enclosure

I've been using these products for the past month now and I am SO happy with these products so that's why I'm sharing them with you. I know that summer is nearly half way over (gasp!) but it's better late than never, right? 

This kit is definitely worth investing in. The blush, bronzer, gloss, and liner can really be used year round.  I always line my bottom waterline with water-proof liner, followed by black eyeshadow to hold it in place. I only wear water-proof mascara though when I'm at the beach, pool, or on lake. This mascara is no joke. The only way this stuff is coming off is with makeup remover. Face wash does not cut it. I have yet to find a mascara that does this so that's really exciting. 

Know what else is great? All of these products would work great with just about any skin tone.  

Now onto the hair...

I still wash my hair 2 sometimes 3 times a week but instead of blowing it out and curling it, I've been skipping the heat. 
I have naturally wavy hair so if your hair is wavy these 4 simple steps may work for you: 
  1. When I get out of the shower I apply Aussie's Volume mousse to my roots and Aussie's Sprunch Spray to my ends. 
  2. I blow dry my bangs and roots/crown (otherwise my hair will dry really flat and stiff)
  3. I separate the ends into 4 sections and twist them to let them air dry
  4. Once my hair is semidry- dry I work some FX Silk Drops into the hair below my ears to "seal it," add a little shine, and smooth out any frizz. ...and that's it! Easy peasy. 


  1. I have wavy hair too, and although I love the waves, I hate the frizz! I'll have to try your method! I love Aussie products :)

    1. I hope it works for you too. They're products work great & I love how they smell too.

  2. I love Cargo products, especially their eyeliners! I have been skipping the heat as well and throwing it into a bun or pony tail. It's too hot to style it!

  3. Thanks for sharing these products. I use the Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder as well and I love it. Have a wonderful week!

  4. I have wavy hair too but not the pretty kind. I've been letting it air dry but then I still have to use my curling iron because I just can't leave it alone. It's air drying as I'm typing so I might have to try your suggestion about the 4 section twist :)

  5. Oh yeah I go from mineral foundation to tinted moisterizer and self tanner.
