My days are spent with three children under the age of four.  So when someone shows me a complex new application technique or a fab lip color that is actually a compilation of balm, liner, lip color, and lip gloss, I say, “Psshhh…Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Summer is here and regardless of whether you are chasing down toddlers, working for the weekend, or squeezing in 15 minutes of sun during your lunch break, it’s likely that you don’t want to waste your time on heavy makeup or tedious but necessary beauty maintenance.  Out with the old, in with the new!  Summer beauty should be effortless, bold, and saucy.  The two most important features:  Smooth legs and a must-have lip. For those of us who need to shave daily in summer, a late afternoon at the beach could be an uncomfortable event.  Legs can suffer from 5 o’clock shadow too!  So ditch the old razor and make room for the 5-blade curve sensing Schick Hydro Silk® Razor. Schick Hydro Silk I love that this razor comes with a cover.  I used to purchase disposables for travel, but now I can save a last minute trip to the store (I always forget to buy razors in advance) and snap a cover over my Hydro Silk instead. Schick Hydro Silk Razor CoverSchick Hydro Silk® razors also contain:

  • Water Activated Moisturizing Serum – hydrates throughout each shave and for up to 2 hours after to help replenish skin’s natural moisture
  • Unique Skin Guards – smooth the skin while shaving helping to protect from irritation
  • Compact Oval cartridge shape – fits easily into hard to reach areas and is designed exclusively for the contours of a woman’s body
  • Soft touch Handle – Aqueous Soft Touch Handle is ergonomic by design with a soft rubber grip, and is inspired by water for a beautiful look

Feeling confident and touchably smooth, it’s time to swipe on a low-maintenance lip color. Schick Hydro Silk Lip Pencils I am all about lip pencils.  Twist-up are best, but I can’t deny my affinity for a great shade with a perfect formula…even if it requires sharpening.  Since summer is about being fuss-free, I narrowed down my collection to three shades that can be kept in a handbag and at the ready for any event.  Each shade can be worn day or night, at the office or on a date.

Tarte Lipsurgence in Glitzy is a natural lip color that has an added bit of oomph from it’s luster formula. Schick Hydro Silk Glitzy

For the juicy summer fruit lip, NARS Happy Days brings a subtle peachy punch to the table. Schick Hydro Silk Happy Days
