On Monday, we talked eye shadow. Today, we’re talking gloss! With the heat waves still coming on strong in the Carolinas, I keep gloss (and chapstick) with me at all times. Daily, I make sure to have my favorite summer shades to both add color to my day and protect my lips from sun damage!

Each morning, I apply a beeswax or all natural moisturizer to my lips for rejuvenation and protection. My go-to product: Honey House Naturals’ Bee Lip Butter (available here!) From there, I pack up two glosses – a light and shimmery color for the workday, and a deeper pink color (just in case I need a more “sophisticated” shade for dinner with friends!)
