It can be hard to find the right products for oily skin at the best of times. But Summer, in particular, is tougher than usual. The hot temperatures cause you to sweat, which leads to your skin looking even oilier than usual. And makeup just seems to slip off your face as soon as you apply it! But this doesn’t mean that you have to give up on makeup altogether in Summer. It’s just a matter of knowing the right products to use for your skin type. And I’m going to help you with this. Read on to find out 3 simple ways you can care for oily skin in Summer. And yes, it is possible to still wear makeup without it slipping off altogether.
The use of natural & organic beauty products is a hot topic these days. As people become more and more aware of what they’re putting into their body, they’re also becoming more aware of what they’re putting ON their body. What you put ON your body gets absorbed INTO your body. So it makes sense to be mindful of the skincare and makeup products you’re using on your body and face, as well as any household products that you use too. Perhaps you’ve been thinking of making the switch to natural & organic beauty products. Or maybe you’re wondering what all the fuss is about. No matter where you are in this process, in part 1 of this 3 part series, I’ll break it down into simple, easy steps for you. Are you ready to begin? Great, then let’s get started.

But don’t worry, I’m going to break it down and make it super simple for you so that you’ll never again waste money on the wrong concealer. So let’s get started with helping you choose your perfect concealer shade.
