Hi, Everyone! Happy Monday!
My husband/photographer Bob was gone on a business trip for the last week or so, and therefore I didn’t take any new pictures while he was gone, and while we were having a real heat-wave in Los Angeles. So I’m sorry to show you an outfit we shot before his trip that doesn’t relate to the very hot Summer weather. But this is something I would still want to wear this Fall, a plain sweater with a floral print, or embroidered skirt, with some fun accessories. If you are not into bold color like me, exchange the top and the shoes for some of your other favorite basic colors.

Along with putting on a lot of sunscreen everyday, summer also means some new skin care and make-up…
I’m making a big effort to swap my heavier winter products for some lighter options. My skin has more problems in Summer, it goes from dry-combination to oily, together with some dark spots that come after too much Sun everyday. I am not saying that I stay in the sun everyday, but living in L.A. means we have sunlight from 6 AM – 8PM, almost all Summer long. Having sun here is just like breathing the air everyday: you can’t avoid it.
So I started trying and experimenting with a lot of new skin care and make-up samples. After a few weeks of testing all kinds of samples from many different brands, so far, here are some of my favorites:
For skin care, I like the LANEIGE Hydration system, makes my face feel very moist, without looking greasy, and I also love their BB cushion. I have all the color tones, and I like to play with all the shadows and highlights by using different color tones. They are very light, with adequate coverage. Plus the SPF 50 + , you can’t beat that!
My all time favorite facial toner is still this SK-II treatment essence, a bit pricy for a toner, but totally worth it. I been using it for years, and just think I can’t live without it. Use it in the morning and at night before I go to bed, before applying all the other skin lotion.
Last but not least, here is my new favorite ‘FALSE EYELASHES” Plush Mascara by Prescriptives, It works just like the name itself. When I use this product, my lashes really do look false (in a good way!)…and I only use one coat.
Let’s be beautiful for the Summer!
