Get ready for summer BBQ’s with Alisha from Lexington

By Cos Bar 2 years ago

It’s the time of the year to break out your red, white and blue: Happy Independence Day! The Fourth of July means barbecues and family time, and requires a balancing act when it comes to your beauty routine. You want to look your best while weathering the heat. Alisha, from our new location in Lexington, Kentucky, is here to share how she elevates BBQ-casual, from prepping in the kitchen to fireworks!

BBQs in Lexington are spent outside where it’s always hot and humid, but there’s a trick to staying cool. I put my Tata Harper mist on ice to keep the glass bottle cool. It's the best way to hydrate and refresh your skin during the summer! I hate to compromise my look for SPF so I start my routine with Chantecaille’s SPF Primer. It’s weightless and fills in pores to even out your texture.

For makeup, I look for long-lasting products. YSL’s lip tint is easy, and it has the staying power I need for my Fourth of July BBQ. Of course, I wear Red My Lips to celebrate the day. Brows are another crucial step and my go-to is Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Brow. Through humidity, pool splashes and the heat of the day, my brows are intact.

We all know burgers, chips and cocktails are BBQ favorites, so I like to balance with a healthy 8 Greens drink. Pro-tip, ladies: they’re also great to mix with your cocktail. Finally, after I have a glow from a little sun and a lot of heat, a put on a little Clé de Peau bronzer to keep my skin warm through the evening!
