A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

Easy and simple makeup tips for the month of July
– Cream style shadows often are often more water-resistant and long-wearing than their powdery counterparts, making them ideal for summertime. Powder shadows can travel along with the sweat and oils of your face and end up in areas you never intended for them to be.
Try our Glo Creamstay Shadow Primer Sticks. This longwear, pigment-rich, cream formula delivers buildable color with maximum versatility for an all day eye statement. Built-in sharpener maintains the perfect point to prime, shade and define the eyes. Comes in 6 shades. ~ $21
– Don’t forget a primer. The oils of your skin are known to separate the pigments in foundation, making it look uneven and blotchy. Primer creates a shield and prevents foundation and your skin’s natural oils from mingling. We love the Glo Oil Free Tinted Primer. The Glo Tinted Primer has a built in SPF 30, and is a silky, oil free, tinted primer with pure mineral sun protection, glides on to instantly even skin tone, mask imperfections and provide all day coverage. Wear alone for sheer radiance or prep foundation for a flawless complexion. Comes in 4 shades ~ $37
– Go waterproof! Eyelashes are tiny hairs, so keep them well-nourished, clump-free, and free of smears by using a waterproof mascara. And to avoid those awful under-eye smears, avoid applying mascara on your lower lashes: oils and sweat will collect under your eyes in the summer, and this could lead to transfer. We love the Glo Water Resistant Mascara ~ $ 21
What are peptides and why are they in beauty products?
Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids they become proteins. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function, similar to how Growth Factors work.
One important protein in our skin is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors such as, sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen.
Some of the most innovative peptides are neuropeptides (which claim to relax facial muscles, therefore reducing the appearance of wrinkles, similar to BOTOX). The most popular is called Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 or Argireline.
When Argireline is applied to the skin, it is absorbed into the body and the chemical composition causes the facial muscles to contract with less force. This diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and can smooth out fine lines that appear with aging. In some cases, users of Argireline serum can experience as much as a 30 percent reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. One serum that includes Argireline is PCA Skin’s Exlinea Peptide Smoothing Serum, a Purple Lily personal favorite.
