Beyond the Makeup Brush would like to treat you to some of our favorite must have beauty products to get your skin ready for summer!  I love Soap & Glory body products such as their “Sugar Crush Body Scrub” which has a nice fresh hint of lime scent. It’s great to exfoliate your dead skin after laying out by the pool or at the beach.  Of course you can’t go out in those bright sunrays without some strong SPF.  I’m a big fan of Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen “Neon Sunscreen Sticks” SPF of 50.  I’m a huge believer in sunscreen all year-long. When I’m out in the sun I definitely use an SPF of at least 40 and tend to use makeup products with some kind of SPF year round.

When it comes to hand lotions I’m a bit of an addict. I absolutely love hand lotion. I  always carry a few small bottles in my handbag with me.  Soap & Glory’s “Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream” is one of my favorites. It moisturizes your hands so well from first application, with its rose scented silky cream. The scent is to die for!  Of course you can’t go without the Soap & Glory “Original Pink Body Spray, it has a fresh fruity smell and goes on cool and light, perfect for those hot summer nights. I’m a huge supporter of local businesses and  recently came across this small locally owned company the Messner Bee Farm at the Makers Faire here in Kansas City.  I love things that are all natural and locally owned.  I fell in love with their lip balm lockets made out of bee’s wax. The scent of lavender is so calming to me and I’m sure your lips will fall in love with their lavender and lemonade flavor as well!

“Orange you glad it’s summer?”

OPI Nail Laquer in “Cajun Shrimp” can be purchased at Target for $8.69

I’m glad summer is finally here, just wish it wasn’t so hot here in the Midwest!  Speaking of hot, the new “hot” color for nails this summer are shades of orange.  Whether it’s a reddish-orange like the OPI Nail Lacquer in “Cajun Shrimp” or Defy and Inspire in “Spoiler Alert” pictured below. This is more of a tangerine color that reminds me of one of those push up popsicles, doesn’t it? Friends, you’re now ready to hit your local farmer’s market or a hot summer night on the town with one of these great shades.

Defy and Inspire Nail Lacquer in “Spoiler Alert” can be purchased at Target for $7.49

You can always add a little shimmer on top like my nail tech at Stem Hair and Body Salon did with a clear silver shimmer gel polish. Some of my favs are OPI Nail Lacquer in “Happy Anniversary Sparkle” which can be purchased online for $8.69 or Revlon“Stunner” Nail Polish for $4.78 on their website.  So whether you want to add a vibrant sizzling orange pop of paint or a pastel tangerine to your hands and feet, you will be pool ready this summer!
