Guest Post: Lauren from Pink on the Cheek

Hope you're all having a relaxing Memorial Day! I'm working a full day- but I'll mentally be right there with you at the beach. Instead of a post from me today- Lauren from Pink on the Cheek is stopping by to share her favorite supper makeup with y'all! Lauren's a past Richmonder- so you know she's a good egg....

Hello sweet B&B readers!
I am Lauren from Pink on the Cheek, or POTC for short. 

I am so amazed by Laura's talent, I cannot imagine more creativity coming from her!
So that makes me really happy to be on her blog today. 

I wanted to share some of my favorite makeup with you that will be perfect for the summer.
I know that RIC can get pretty hot during the summer months, I experienced it myself!
With the humidity, sudden storms, heat lighting, and need to look good for all conditions.

 First off:
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream

This cream is a 5 in 1 secret. 
It is a moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, and even has SPF 35. 
This is my go to item on my days off from work when I need some quick cover up.

The next item is a bright lipstick.

I am wearing Electric Pink by Smashbox.
I have good luck with matte lipsticks. When you find a great one like Smashbox, it just glides on easy and just sticks. No smudges, no check ups during the day, you are good to go!

Next is a great lotion. 
You are going to be wearing shorts and skirts most of the summer.
With shaving your legs constantly, you want to keep them smooth but not have that sweaty feeling.

I am in love with this lotion because it goes on quickly and it not sticky.
You feel moisturized the whole day PLUS  it smells great!

So those are my summer must haves. You shouldn't be doing too much makeup while you are in the sun because the most important thing to wear is sunscreen!
Plus having lots of makeup sweat off your face is not a good look.

I hope you stop by my blog after reading this, I would love to have you!


Thanks for taking over for me today, Lauren! (Make sure to show her some love, my friends).

We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow.Until then, have a cold one for me.
