Fuss-Free Summer Makeup...it's really possible!
As a beauty maven, I'm always on the hunt for great products that are not only aware of their impact on our bodies and skin, but they're also concerned for how they impact the environment. And when it comes to Summer, it's a main focus of mine to find items that will cut down on my prep time, won't clog my pores, or be affected by the Texas heat! This can definitely pose a challenge to find products that fall into all of these criteria, however it IS possible ;)
Sometimes, it just takes a bit of searching, from a beauty-obsessed gal like myself! I recently came upon a great brand that encompasses this very approach: ultra convenience & affordability, with simple and environmentally conscious products that are easy to use too! Want to know more?! Learn all about The Beauty Closet's top beauty pick for Summer from BOOM!, below!
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
by Cindy Joseph
BOOM! is a brand that was founded by Cindy Joseph- a woman of many talents, who is most often known for her modeling career with Ford Models, Inc. This is a career that Cindy continues on today and because of her love of beauty, she was inspired to create the brand. Her main focus of BOOM!, was to create a pared down skincare line. Cindy is still doing this today and BOOM! has brought about a movement of women who want to approach how they age in a new way; it means that instead of masking your inner beauty, you're utilizing the makeup to your advantage- by having it enhanced!
What I love about BOOM! products is that they really do have simplicity in mind, with an easy approach that will look great on everyone. The Boomstick Trio is a great starter kit and introduction to the brand if you've not yet had a chance to try them out! At around $76, it does seem on the pricier side, for just 3 products. But, these 3 boomsticks each provide a vast variety of beauty & product uses that allow you to ditch a few items you thought you needed in your current beauty routine ;) The 3 products included in the set are: the Boomstick Color, Boomstick Glo, & Boomstick Glimmer.
My fav out of the entire set is the Glimmer- it will boost radiance in a snap and is perfect for a quick & easy Summer bronzer or highlighter. The pearlescent champagne shimmer shade is something that will be flattering on almost any skin tone and I found it to be quite complimentary, even though I do have super fair skin :) If you're looking for a natural look on your eyes, lips, & cheeks, the Glimmer stick is an excellent choice and it also great for your upper-chest, neck, and shoulders- for adding a touch of healthy glow & glimmer to your skin.
Boomstick Glo came in a close 2nd pick for me, but it was honestly difficult to pick which ones I liked more than the other- they are all wonderful products ;) The Glo stick is 100% organic and this makes it an excellent candidate for super sensitive skin. Not only does this fab product boost your skin's moisture retention, but it give skin a nice dewy glow that also nourishes skin all day long! What I really like about this product is that it is good for the delicate skin around the eyes, lips, & neck AND it's great for other areas of your face, cuticles, and other parched areas that need a boost of natural hydration.
Although the Boomstick Color comes in as my 3rd choice out of the collection, but it really was a difficult decision...and I still love how it turned out! I was a bit hesitant that I would actually like the shade of this particular stick, since I am so fair-skinned. My hesitancy vanished though as soon as I had applied the product and I realized it looks great :) Not only do I have a healthy and natural, blushing glow when I apply this to my cheeks, but it's perfect for your lips as well. You can even apply this to your lids, neck, & forehead- for an easy and healthy look! All 3 Boomsticks are sheer, moist, and universally flattering- they all are a cinch to use and great for the on-the-go woman :) This simple 3-step system is something that anyone can use and it's perfect for the summer!
