Makeup Monday: Staying Hydrated With Flawless Makeup This Summer

There’s no doubt about it, summer is officially here. The sun has never been a bestie to us ladies who love to wear makeup during the summer. Every summer, I have to find ways to keep my body cool and my makeup flawless. The secret to keeping my skin from looking dull and lifeless has been hydration. 


Using a hydrating mist keeps my skin hydrated, refreshed, and I find it helps to set my makeup. Leaving me feeling and looking fresh with a health face glow. Hydration mist keeps my skin from becoming dry and lackluster, whether I’m laying out on the beach, traveling, walking, or working outdoors. The best summer treat you can give to your face is a hydration mist. It helps to nourish, moisturize, soothe, rejuvenate, and energize the skin with sexy epidermal cocktails of spring rose water and natural extracts with anti-oxidant to provide instant relief from the heat this summer. 

Here are a few of my favorite hydration mists that I think you will never want to leave your home without.
