It's the final countdown to summer! Summertime weekends are the BEST! I always look forward to heading to the beach or camping. I love to kick back and relax, but I still like to look and feel my best, yet with little effort. Before heading out for the weekend, I always pack my summertime weekend essentials from Sun Bum, ColorMetrics and DDF Skincare to ensure that some of my most important beauty needs are covered.

Make a statement: Streekers Temporary Hair Color
STREEKERS is true temporary hair color with a difference. Instant. Liquid. Washes out when you want it out. Not a mascara, not a crayon, not a paint. But a cool new hair color that uses innovative technology.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and it's time we start thinking about the perfect gift for her. Thank god ColorMetrics, Smashbox, Sophia Gushee and Wink Brow Bar has us covered with options for any type of Mom out there.
For the busy mom: Get real hair color in one swipe with TouchBack Marker
Unlike mascara, crayons, gels, and powders, TouchBack won’t flake or rub off with brushing. TouchBack bonds to the hair and stays true until shampooed out.
For the healthy mom: Learn how to detox your home (and your life) with A to Z of D-Toxing, written by Sophia Gushee
“I share the lay of the land that I wish I had sooner--a road map of a family's potentially toxic exposures, especially those that are avoidable--so that you can formulate a game plan that suits your family's unique environment, lifestyle, and budget."
For the bold mom:Give her brows that wow at Wink Brow Bar
“Defined brows make you look in control and portray your mental outlook on life. From an aesthetic perspective, they structure your face, so that the eye rests on a person’s upper area, make your jawline lift and cheekbones higher.” – Umbreen Sheikh, Founder of Wink Brow Bar
For the glam mom: Help her get the glow with Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer
This satin-smooth formula illuminates, perfects and enhances radiance while hydrating for better makeup application.
Now that the summer is officially over, it’s time to reverse the havoc all those days in the sun has cause on our hair and skin. The fall breeze is bringing in smooth, hydrated skin and vibrant, natural hair. Let MALIN+GOETZ, Sun Bum, ColorMetrics and Ricardo Rojas help you restore the damage the summer has left behind.
Physician grade Glycolic Acid thoroughly sloughs away dead skin to encourage cell turnover, collagen production and to smooth wrinkles for a healthy, radiant glow.
This supreme indulgence revives sun-sapped skin with Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter.
TouchBack Color-Depositing Shampoo and Color-Depositing Conditioner should be used once a week to add back vibrant color and shine. Designed to be used together -- the pair add color, repair damage and smooth hair.
This fall we will definitely see a lot of texture and natural hair. Curly, natural waves are in and the texture lets your hair be free no matter the length. It’s great to work the curls with a diffuser or even just a towel dry and some mousse and then you’re good to go!

Wink Brow Bar
Landing in Tribeca with a husband and a new baby in 2003, Umbreen searched for her fix, but local threading spots were unhygienic and uninviting. Worse, their technique was sloppy and painful. Trained to avoid skin-ripping waxes and tweezing like the plague, she started putting together own network of talented artisans. Passing down the secrets her mother taught her, Wink Brow Bar was born.
