As summer vacation is right around the corner, we're all in need of some awesome tips as the weather heats up.
Lucky for us, fashion, beauty and DYI vlogger Andrea shares some fantastic secrets for looking your best and getting trough all the vacations, parties and beach days like a pro! Andrea creates videos on her Youtube channel, Andrea's Choice, and is also from California, so she definitely knows how to rock the summer in style. Here are some of her summer go-to tips for staying beautiful when you're in a pinch.
It always seems you can't find your best concealer when you need it the most! Don't fear, Andrea shows us how you can make your own concealer by mixing your powder foundation with the correct amount of your face moisturizer. Now you're beach or party ready!
We all love a day on the beach or by the pool, but remembering to put on (or reapply!) sunscreen could leave you sunburned. Applying calming lotions, like aloe vera, can be uncomfortable when you've gotten too much sun. Andrea's tip to make your after-sun routine a little more tolerable is to freeze the aloe vera gel in ice cube trays, and apply it frozen.
Heat can often make your favorite bottle of lotion expand, resulting in a glob of lotion all over your beach bag. Or, even worse, your shower gel leaked in your toiletry bag on the way to your vacation. To stop this from happening in the first place, simply put a piece of saran wrap over the opening, then screw on the bottle's cap.
If you don't deal with this on a hot, active summer day, then gold star for you! But for the rest of us, a shiny face is normal when the temperature begins to climb. Be prepared with these easy-to-make coffee filter face squares. Andrea cuts up a bunch of them at once and stores them in her bag for later - genius!
Unfortunately, sweat marks on your shirt do happen when it gets warm enough. To remedy this, Andrea created a sweat mark shield that's easy (and cheap!) to make. She simply cut a panty liner and fixed it onto the inside of the shirt to absorb any underarm wetness.
Chances are, you'll hit up one of your favorite drink spots before heading to the beach. This gives you the perfect way to safely store the necklace you forgot to take off. Andrea teaches you to loop the necklace through the straw, and then secure the ends together before tossing it into your beach bag.
