Anna2BT_0-1656692224976.png

 

 

Summer is finally here, Beauty Insider Community! To celebrate one of the most fun times of the year (aka Hot BIC Summer 😉) we’re bringing in an exciting new summer challenge in the form of the first official virtual BIC World Tour! ✈ We know not everyone is able to travel at this time, so let’s go together virtually 💕

 

Each week we’ll have a new vacation-themed prompt where you’ll get to share your fantasy favorites as we travel to different climates and places across the world! 🌎

 

Check in time: Each Friday launches a new travel destination and prompt, so check back to this post weekly for more vacay fun:

 

  • (Week 1: 7/1 - 7/7) Your ultimate summer vacay: Close your eyes and picture your dream vacay … now answer this question: if you could only bring 5 beauty products along with you on this trip, what would they be?

 

  • (Week 2: 7/8 - 7/14) Hot BIC Summer: Battling against heat and humidity is no easy task! Talk about your most powerful tools, products, or tips that help you fight against the sun.

 

  • (Week 3: 7/15 - 7/21) Seamless day to night: Sometimes it’s all about versatility. Share with us your favorite products, looks, or hacks to easily go from day to night.

  

  • (Week 4: 7/22 - 7/28) Tropical & beachy: Sun, sand, water, and vibes~ what are you taking with you for a day out on the sand? Bonus points if you want to add a fun beach-inspired look. 😉

 

  • (Week 5: 7/29 - 8/4) G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S night on the town: Show off your glam looks and the products you’ll use to transform yourself for a night out!

 

  • (Week 6: 8/5 - 8/11) BIC outdoor essentials: Camping, hiking, and all-things outdoors! 🌲 What are your essentials you need with you to take on the terrain?

 

  • (Week 7: 8/12 - 8/18) Home is where the scent is: Sometimes we can all use a little piece of what we call home. 🏡💕 What fragrance item (perfume, candle, diffuser, etc.) would you bring that always reminds you of home sweet home?

 

  • (Week 8: 8/19 - 8/26) Cold weather hydration must-haves: Snow, icy winds, and cold temps – it’s not hot everywhere this time of year! Some of those most breathtaking sights take place in the cold! What are you bringing to keep your skin hydrated and feeling healthy?

 

Reply below to share your looks, products, thoughts, and tips on the vacay prompts for our BIC World Tour! ✈  Remember to tag any products you would be using (if applicable!) with the “#” sign. We look forward to all the fun we’ll have together for the weeks to come!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

More Week 2: Hot BIC Summer. I keep falling asleep before I get to upload my post. Last one for last week's Hot BIC Summer tips and tricks for beating heat and humidity @Anna2BT.

 

Battling Heat and Humidity: The Workday Edit

Week 2 Battling Heat & Humidity - The Everyday Office Edit.jpg
My everyday office workday look tends to be even more minimalist when it's hot and humid. 

 

Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Mineral Milk Sunscreen SPF 30 1.7 oz / 50 mL  has been in my rotation more regularly this summer. It's a lightweight, thin-ish, milky serum-like, unscented, mineral sunscreen that absorbs easily and leaves my skin hydrated and dewy, without tackiness, stickiness, or a white cast. My personal preference would be for a higher SPF but for days when I'm at my desk for most, if not all, of the day, it works just fine and my current combination (oily T-zone) likes the look and feel this gives. That it doubles beautifully as a primer for me is an extra perk. 

 

I have been loving the combination of the Summer Fridays SPF and the Tower 28 Beauty SunnyDays Lightweight Foundation. The shade Melrose gives me enough color to help even skin tone by covering some redness on my cheeks and can be buildable to light / light-medium coverage while still looking natural. It's very lightweight and doesn't look greasy or feel heavy. I tend to leave it at just that but if I need a little more coverage under my eyes, at the corners of my nose, or to cover a pesky pimple that has popped up, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ## will do the trick. I like that it holds up well in humidity and the office A/C.

 

Mists are a favorite of mine year-round. The LANEIGE Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer 5.0 oz/ 150 mL was a great find when I first discovered it a few years ago, and I love the mist version even more -LANEIGE Cream Skin Mist 2.54 oz/ 75 mL. It's handy for travel in my clear plastic baggy or my handbag. Or on my desk at work. This is a more moisturizing though still lightweight mist, which I find helps to combat any dryness that office air conditioning might bring without causing skin to feel heavy.

 

I like a little color on my lips and the gorgeous rosy mauve of GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI Anaheim Shine Clean High-Performance Satin Lipstick Stomp Box. This satin formula is comfortable and lightweight; two layers on my lightly pigmented lips gives me a nice pop of color. I can get some transfer on my mask if I'm doing a lot of talking but for days when I'm primarily at my desk except for walking to and from the printer, bathroom or water cooler, I don't see much on my mask at the end of the work day.

  • (Week 3: 7/15 - 7/21) Seamless day to night:Sometimes it’s all about versatility. Share with us your favorite products, looks, or hacks to easily go from day to night.

For me a change of lip color, clothes, hair, or eye makeup can make a look go from day to night.

GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI I’m Still Here Longwear Clean Matte Liquid Lipstick 


Here’s some looks I did this year. You can see how a change in hair, clothes, makeup can change a look.

Week 2Hot BIC Summer

 

It usually doesn’t get too hot or humid in the city save for a few days in late September and October. Summer 2022 has been a huge exception, with more frequent heat waves and muggy days serving as not-so-gentle reminders that central AC is near the top of my list for the  next home renovation project.

 

Great challenge theme @Anna2BT. What an amazing resource this thread has been for tips and tricks for the summer. Adding a few of mine now and will be back to add some more (hopefully before the start of the new theme tomorrow 🤞🏼).

 

Battling Heat & Humidity: The Out & About Edit

Week 2 - Heat & Humidity - The Out & About Edit.jpg

wide-brimmed hat 👒 (or cap or bucket hat) is something I reach for when I’m out and about most days. It’s lovely shield from those UVA/UVB rays and it makes for a great accessory for lazy hair days.

 

Waterproof broad spectrum SPF, like A’pieu Pure Block Water Proof Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++, a hybrid chemical and mineral sunscreen, is a powerful arsenal to have on hand in the battle against heat and humidity.

 

It’s important to refresh and hydrate throughout the day and especially when it’s hot and humid and having a supply of water   

 SEPHORA COLLECTION Sephora City Reusable Water Bottle and a hydrating mist like Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Adaptogens, and Coconut Water # on hand are great way to replenish and refresh from the inside and on the outside. Ahhhh!

 

If I’m out and about I’m most liking going to find myself sweating glistening more than I’d like at some point. Blotting papers like Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers ( Shiseido Oil Control Blotting Paperhelp to take down extra shine. Looking at you, my excess oil producing T-zone!!! 

 

A tinted balm is a pretty way to add a little color and moisture to the lips. SEPHORA COLLECTION #LIPSTORIES Lip Balm Date Prep  has been a “go-to” and repeated repurchase for years! 

 

Finally, a pair of sunglasses to add a little pizazz to my look as well as some protection for my peepers. A snazzy little number like these red heart-shaped sunnies (thank you @TeamBIC !) also adds a smile to my day, and likely to those I run across while wearing these cuties! 😎

Week 2

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

@Nahnom, I don't have central A/C in my house (ugh!) so I completely understand and love that air conditioning is noted as a tool for battling heat and humidity. 😁

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

Week 2: 7/8 - 7/14 Hot BIC Summer: Battling against heat and humidity is no easy task! Talk about your most powerful tools, products, or tips that help you fight against the sun.

 

If I am not wearing one, I have a Slip Pure Silk Skinnie Scrunchie Bauble around my wrist because just getting my hair lifted off of my neck helps. 

SPF powder is handy for diffusing shiny skin and adding extra protection. I have been using Colorscience, which is a breeze to use, but @ather has mentioned Supergoop! (Re) Setting Refreshing Mist Sunscreen SPF 40 3.4 oz/ 100 mL and now that is next in my list to try.

 

My most powerful tool right now is the O2 mini fan. It goes everywhere with me in my Summer BIC tote ☺️

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

@eshoe  Great choice of tools!!! I need one of those mist things! Sounds perfect for this heat wave we have been in! I also agree with the scrunchies I need to keep my hair off my neck!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

Thank you @ather - we need all the help we can get with these continual heat waves 🥵

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

Hot BIC Summer:

Honestly, this year, I've given up on wearing any type of foundation or bb cream during the summer. I have very oily skin, and I spend way too much time outside to bother. I use undereye concealer concealer and powder - other than that, it's just blush, an eyebrow pencil, and mascara, and maybe eyeliner. My advise is to find a great sunscreen that works for you (face and body), and also a lip balm with SPF (I love the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 Grapefruit & Ginger. I wear hats and sunglasses too to prefect my face.boscia Black Charcoal Blotting Linens have been a holy grail for me for years!

Oh, and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

Blotting papers are a must @RyNieDaMan👍 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour - Share your tips and tricks for the summer heat! (Week 2)

Instead of wearing a full coverage foundation which can feel heavy apply a few drops of foundation into your sunscreen to give it a customized tint for a protective skin blurring effect.
