Sunscreen Tips, Summer Beauty & More

Posted by ChickAdvisor Team | Friday June 3, 20115 comments

Hello summer! Is it hot and gorgeous where you are, or are storm clouds still terrorizing your warm-weather plans? If you're not getting any rays, why not take in the bright yellow of a Fresh Lemon Bar? If you're only seeing gray skies, why not pick up a hot pink lipstick? However, if you are out and about in the sun, check out some sunscreen tips to be sure you're playing safe...

We've all put on a full face of makeup and either forgotten the sunscreen or thought a few hours later that we'd better reapply—but how to do it while maintaining the paint you've applied? Beauty Editor offers some helpful sunscreen tips that aren't exactly how to put sunscreen on over top of your makeup, but rather makeup that has sunscreen that you can use instead of applying lotion.

Another important sunscreen topic comes from Beautygeeks who asks, do you know which to put on first—sunscreen or moisturizer? You should definitely read the answer to be sure you're doing it right.

We're geeking out along with I Want - I Got over the Summer 2011 collection from Nars. While she's got the Kismet and Ecume nail colours on her I Want list, we're crushing over the lime-green, sparkly Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Queen and the Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage, a vivid, hot pink.

Some of you might be taking the summer to get renovations done, or maybe you just want to drool over one of the most gorgeously decorated apartments ever? Coco & Lowe have all the shots of designer Erin Fetherston's Paris-chic Tribeca loft featured in Vogue. Be prepared to experience new levels of envy.

This handy solar window charger on Gifted is a great—you guessed it—gift. With Father's Day coming up, it's just the kind of thing that will satisfy both his practical and gadget-loving sides.

Get the kids involved and make a Family Summer Bucket List with this really cute kit that At Home With Kim Vallée found. A great project to avoid those "I'm bored, mo-o-o-om" groans.

At the top of our Baking Bucket List are these drool-worthy Fresh Lemon Bars from Sweet Potato Chronicles. "When life gives you lemons, make Fresh Lemon Bars" is our new motto.

What sunscreen rules do you live by? Have you picked up something for Dad yet? Do you have ideas for what to do with the kids this summer?

I have to agree with Sydney06. The nars collection has the nicest colors. I really like bright fun colors for the summer, especially the green and blue eyeshadows on the bottom left
