Hello loves! So it reached over 100 degrees here in New York yesterday and because of that it pretty much feels impossible to wear anything other than a tank top and jeans and super minimal makeup. Because of the intense heat, I came up with a really quick summer makeup routine that makes me feel pulled together but still allows my skin to breathe aka sweat haha. I explained my process below, but if you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments below and I will get back to you asap! Click here to see more of my YouTube videos!

Products Used In Order:

1. Neutrogena Face Wipes

I LOVE these wipes and always use them when I want to freshen up my face quickly.

2. Eau Thermale Avene / Thermal Spring Water

Lately I have really been into spritzing my face with thermal water to hydrate and cool off my skin after cleansing. It feels so refreshing!

3. This Works Light Time Skin Plump

I just started using this product and love it. It plumps and hydrates, and works well with my sensitive skin.

4. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

I heard about this product because everyone was raving about it so I gave it a try. Definitely loving it because of the coconut oil and the way it makes my skin feel. And don’t worry, you don’t have to be hungover to use it. :)

5. Être Belle Cosmetics Golden Skin Roll-on Caviar Eye Gel

I love this eye gel because the rollerball is cool and soothing on my eyes, especially in the morning. Plus it calms my under eye and helps with applying the next product.

6. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector

This stuff is amazing. When I don’t want to wear a ton of concealer but want to even out my dark under eye circles, it works wonders.

7. Erborian CC Crème

This stuff is great at evening out the slight redness I get on my nose and cheeks. I love how these two products work together to help even out my skin without making me feel like I’m covering my face in a ton of makeup.

8. Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Bronzer

I just dab a bit of this on my face to add a bit on color on my face without having to apply powder, bronzer or blush. Works great!

9. The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder & 10. Sephora Collection Pro Featherweight Fan Brush #92

I got this at an event and have been using it ever since. I have also been using it as an alternative for a shimmery eyeshadow, which is really fun. Overall, this product gives off a great glow/sheen and it applies super easily, especially with the #92 brush.

11. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you guys have been following me for a while you all know how much I LOVE this mascara. In this video I quickly show the difference between one eye with it on and the other with nothing and it’s like night and day! Also, I wanted to say that I usually skip eyeliner when it’s super hot because I just feel like it’s one more step and I will probably smudge it somehow when I’m sweating down inside the subway.

12. Cover Girl x Katy Perry Lipstick in Cat Call

I have a bunch of her lipsticks (I even met her – she’s super nice!) and really like the colors and how they are easy to apply. This color (Cat Call) is the perfect summer pink!

On Thursday we drove out of New York City in a beautiful 2016 Volvo XC90, that the brand loaned to us for our road trip to Cleveland. It took us eight hours to get there (one hour longer than normal because of road work and traffic), which isn’t terrible but definitely isn’t short either, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared to sit in a car for that long and be as comfortable as possible.

Christine Cameron of My Style Pill on going from a redhead to a blonde15It’s been quite the journey (over a year in a fact) from when I first decided to dye my hair a raspberry red color for a collaboration with L’Oreal (watch the YouTube video here) to then deciding to become a full-fledged blonde. But let’s back up a bit and start from the beginning…

Beach Must-haves
1 | 2| 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 |10 | 11 | 12
This past Sunday we headed out to Rockaway for our first beach day of the season. I wore this bikini, and came prepared with all of my favorite beach beauty products to make sure that I was protected from being in the sun all afternoon. Read on to see why I love each of these products shown above!
(*Disclaimer: I know that not all of the items list are beauty products, but I like to think they each play an essential part in having a relaxing and successful beach day!)
1. Sisley Paris Tinted Sunscreen Cream SPF 30: If you want that natural looking glow, this product is worth every penny. It gives you that sun-kissed, fresh faced look that every girl hopes to have after a day at the beach, while still protecting your skin.
2. Karen Walker Super Duper Thistle Sunglasses: Even though sunglasses aren’t a beauty product, I consider accessories just as important when at the beach. Because I have really sensitive eyes, I love oversized sunnies when spending a day in the sun. This pair is so big I swear they cover half my face!
3. Moroccanoil Sun Lotion SPF 50: You can’t go wrong with a good-smelling, moisturizing and fast-absorbing sunscreen that is also 50 SPF and water-resistant. Win, win all around!
4. Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray: I have naturally wavy hair but struggle with taming the frizz when the humidity is in full force. This spray helps tame and style my hair despite what the weather might be like.
5. Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50: I was recently introduced to this product at the brand’s press preview and fell in love with it. It’s perfect for when you have already applied your sunscreen but want to quickly reset and refresh without having to rub more cream all over your face. Easy, peasy.
6. Mar y Sol ‘Capri’ Woven Tote with Pom Charms: You can’t go wrong with a cute tote to carry all your must-haves with you when trekking out to the beach for a fun day in the sun. I mean, how cute are those pom-poms!
7. Alexandre de Paris Thin Hair Clip: Instead of using a rubber band, which can leave a dent in your hair, try a sleek clip as an alternative when pulling your hair up into a bun, which will help avoid damaging your ends.
8. Sisley Paris ‘Phyto-Eye Twist’ All in One Eyeshadow, Pencil & Eyeliner in Copper: I don’t usually wear eye makeup at the beach, but if we head out for drinks or dinner after a day in the sun, I’ll swipe some of this bronze eye pencil on for a shimmery glow.
9. Colorescience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen Brush Broad Spectrum SPF 50: What’s better than sunscreen powder with a built in brush?! I love to use this product when I need to touch up my face with a little coverage while protecting it at the same time.
10.Triple C BluCube Bluetooth Speaker: This little speaker cube packs a lot of punch and is perfect for jamming out to tunes with friends. Casey and I currently obsessed with the Hamilton soundtrack. It’s. So. Good.
11. Supergoop! Shine-On Lip Screen Broad Spectrum SPF 50: Even though I might skip wearing mascara at the beach, I love popping on a bright lipstick for fun photo opps. But don’t forget how important it is to protect that kisser! This lip screen offers a soft-shine topcoat that transforms lip color into a powerful UV shield by defending lips from dehydration and photoaging. The clear topcoat allows your base color to show through, highlighting it with a soft shine and water-resistant finish.
12: Wide-brimmed Straw Hat: I try and protect my face from the sun as much as possible, so any type of wide-brimmed hat is a must, must, must-have for me! I am currently loving a vintage one that Keiko gave me, but any beachy hat will do, as long as the brim actually offers substantial coverage. :)

MyStylePill Herbal Essences Collage1In this day and age, we are so connected to our phones, devices, computers –you name it, we are probably on more than one at a time! Admittedly, I can find it very hard to turn everything off for fear of missing out, but luckily, I grew up with my Mother and Grandmother who taught me the importance of mindfulness and meditation, and how beneficial it is to find the time to strip away the superficial and focus on the authentic.

Because an amazing thing happens when I strip away the noise, the clutter and the commotion of my everyday stress. I become present, live in the moment, and reconnect with my true self again, allowing my creativity to flow and for greatness to happen, in whatever form it might be.

Now for a little segue, you all remember the past Herbal Essences commercials (the shower scenes haha) and how good the products smelled, right? Well now the brand is introducing two new collections – Herbal Essences Naked Clean & Refresh, and Herbal Essences Naked Smooth & Soft Shampoo and Conditioner, which are both free of heavy residues, parabens or dyes.

They approached me about working with their the latest collection, which is focused around who you are in your most pared down, #nakedstate of mind, and because of everything I just mentioned above, I was intrigued to experience and learn more.

I started by spending an afternoon with the very talented Celebrity Hairstylist Charles Baker Strahan who taught me all about the Naked Collection and walked me through all the steps needed to create the beachy, loose waves I wanted. Because my hair is fine, he used the Herbal Essences Naked Clean & Refresh Shampoo and Conditioner, which smells of strawberries and mint, to cleanse and brighten it before styling.

Now I’ll walk you through our process!

The Naked Volumizing Soufflé (the mousse) is best to put in your hair when it’s really wet and fresh from the shower. Apply at the roots and then work it towards the ends. Twist your hair to wring out the excess moisture in your hair, which will also help to more evenly distribute the product through your hair.

Next, because I have naturally curly hair and it can tend to get a bit frizzy around the hair lines, Charles recommended combing the hairline area and tucking it behind my ears to smooth out the cow licks and extra curly areas. He suggests also using a bobby pin or a flat clip to hold it in place to allow the hair to air dry.

Save your hair styling for the last part of getting ready. He explained to me that the heat is what changes the shape of hair, so doing too much in the way of styling with a blow dryer is sort of a waste in energy.

Tip: A rough dry can do the trick because you only need the hair to be around 90% dry.
Charles blew out my edges with a large natural bristle brush and a diffusing nozzle, then added loose waves with an iron.

Tip: If you reshape wave or curl with irons or wands, hair is much less likely to frizz and you can also comb or brush it to integrate waves and/or build body or volume.
Lastly, he spritzed my hair with the Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer to hold waves and scrunch it in to create a beachy look.

Tip: Using the Naked Dry Shampoo is a great way to add extra body and volume too!

MyStylePill Herbal Essences Collage4After my hair consultation and styling session with Charles, I headed to a meditation session at ISHTA Yoga to learn some tips on how to quiet the mind and center the body through breath and movement. It was a lovely mix of yoga and meditation, and I found it so amazing and calming to sit quietly for an hour with no phone. I came out of the session so relaxed and refreshed, plus my hair totally stayed in tact while moving through my yoga flow.MyStylePill Herbal Essences Collage5Then later on in the evening, I went with my dear friend Liz to Rockwood Music Hall for an 8PM showing of the band Bellehouse. I love live music and this New York-based group is a mix of Old Time and folk revival with touches of Celtic, classic rock, soul and Motown to name a few. It was a great day overall and I loved getting in touch and taking time for myself to enjoy things that bring me happiness. MyStylePill Herbal Essences Collage6MyStylePill Herbal Essences Collage8 MyStylePill_HerbalEssences-1MyStylePill_HerbalEssences-3MyStylePill_HerbalEssences-2

Nars Lipstick

I started wearing NARS lipstick last year sometime when I saw a girl wearing the most beautiful berry color and asked her what it was, which she told me was called Bette. Then a few months ago, I swung into the NARS store on Bleecker to check out any other fall colors I might need and that’s when I discovered Charlotte. I was so taken with it I had to get it!

Anyway, above are some recent photos where I am wearing these two lipsticks so you can see what they look like on. In the first and second photo, I am wearing Bette, and in the third photo I am wearing Charlotte. I will say, that lipstick shades can look different on everyone due to your natural lip color and just generally how different colors wear next to your skin tone.

Shop my favorite dark berry NARS lip colors below, along with my favorite matching nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann, perfect for the holiday season!

Takeaway Tips On Wearing Dark Lipstick:

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! It’s funny how the seasons that are the most fun to wear dark lipstick, tend to be the hardest time to actually wear them! Isn’t that ironic? I don’t know about you, but my lips get super chapped and start peeling the minute the temperatures drop, and let’s be honest, that’s not a cute look when you are wearing a dark berry lip!

So with that said, I recommend Mary Kay Satin Lips Set, which comes with one Satin Lips Lip Mask, which buffs away dry skin, and one Satin Lips Lip Balm, that moisturizes and helps keep lips soft.

After you’ve pampered your lips, make sure to line them with either a sheer liner or one that is a close match to the color you are wearing. I like NARS Velvet Lip Liner in Belle Mare, which works well with Bette and Charlotte, or really any dark berry lip color.

Once your lips are lined, fill them in with your color of choice, et voila! You have beautiful berry colored lips!
