The CC Staff’s Beauty Must Haves!
So it’s summer and we all know what that means: time to really get into some new pretty makeup, sweet scented lotions and anything that involves becoming a bronzed goddess.
So obviously during our precious staff meetings, us ladies like to share our current obsessions and essentials. And this time, we really wanted to share our get-gorgeous secrets with you. I mean, who are we to keep such loveliness to ourselves?
“Product wise I love Bed Head’s Split End Mender ($14.99) because it really helps prevent split ends, smoothes over the flyaways I already have, and conditions my hair without making it heavy or greasy. And since I’m not a huge fan of sun-bathing I’m a total self-tanner. Neutrogena Build-a-Tan ($9.09) is my go-to because I never have to worry about getting that gross orangey/streaky Jessica Simpson look.” Jen, NYU.
“I’m in love with Sephora’s Summer Blockbuster Palette. It’s only $36 and has 24 shadows, 24 lip colors, 5 blushes and a power, fits perfectly into a little clutch and it’s all I need to change my makeup from a work day to a night out. Bath&Body Works’ White Cherry Blossom body splash is also freakin’ delish. B&B Works is no longer the default birthday gift for a preteen, this actually smells clean & summer fresh and it’s on sale for only $4 until Sunday.” Solmaaz, UMASS.
“Aveda Tinted Moisturizer ($25) is hands down the best product I’ve discovered so far this summer. It’s the perfect alternative to the dry, cakey feeling of foundation. Since it’s essentially a moisturizer, your face feels refreshed after use. But best of all, all Aveda products are made with all natural ingredients, so it has a light clean scent. Plus, the SPF 15 will shield your face from the inevitable rays of the summer. I would recommend this stuff to any girl who wants to have a natural just-got-back-from-the-beach summer look.” Gabrielle, Fordham University.
