6 Beauty Must Haves for a Bohemian Chic Summer

by guest contributor Deanna Forestner, Hair and Beauty Expert

Summer is here! Time to pack your backpack and head up to the mountains for fresh air, hiking through the forest, and good ol' fashion R&R -- Bohemian style. Just because you're in the woods "roughing" it, doesn't mean you can’t look and feel beautiful while doing it. From fresh textured hair to glossy full lips, I unveil the six everyday bohemian beauty essentials I recommend to get you through summer looking naturally gorgeous (even in the great outdoors)! 

For Hair

1. AVEDA Thickening Tonic

I like this product because its 97% naturally derived. This product is proven to thicken instantly with just one use. Follow these steps for full bohemian hair:

  • Spray thickening tonic thoroughly from roots to ends in sections. Comb through to distribute evenly.
  • Blow dry your hair with round brush using a nozzle to direct the hair down each section.
  • Brush or dry hair into the style you desire. For a natural more organic look, let the wind from the trees blow your hair dry while occasionally scrunching your hair with your hands.

For Face

2. Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream

This product is my beauty go-to, not just for summer, but for every day life. In my opinion, the product benefits are endless -- it covers blemishes, minimizes pores, disguises wrinkles, smoothes and brightens skin. It's also water resistant for 40 minutes, broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 25 UVB/UVA, and vegan, gluten free and cruelty free. 

3.  NYX Wonder Pencil

Wonder Women, meet the Wonder Pencil! This product conquers three critical makeup tasks all with one product: conceal flaws and blemishes, line your lips against lipstick bleeding and fading, and brighten your eyes along the watermark. Don't leave the cabin without it.

4. NYX Megashine Lipgloss

This product delivers shine, moisture, softness, and gives the lips a glistening color. Its slim shape fits easily in the pocket of your favorite cutoffs.

5. Naked Urban Decayed flushed face pallet

This trio features a silky bronzer, natural glow highlighter and the most perfect, natural blush for those days you want to look naturally flushed and sculpted. Tuck this sleek pallet in your bag for mid-hike touchups.

For Body

6. We grow water watermelon cold pressed juice

This delicious and hydrating juice tastes like summer exploded in your mouth. Every 8oz serving contains the nutrients you need to help sustain you on long hikes (and after hot yoga sessions): 740mg of potassium, 500 mg of citrulline for muscle recover, and 60% vitamin C. Organic watermelon and lemon ingredients not only hydrate faster than any other sports drink available, but they help your skin glow... just like the sun shining off the lake. This can also be used as a healthy cocktail mixer too! 

Time to enjoy, hydrate, refresh, and relax.
