Summer is undoubtedly great, but with summer comes an endless list of beauty problems that tend to get out of hand. Untamed frizz, uneven tans, bubbly nail polish, cakey foundation, the list goes on and on. Need some help with these every day encounters? Keep readin' on!1) Put your nail polish in the fridge! This will help it stay smooth and cool for use! Say buh-bye to bubbly polish!2) Use dryer sheets to tame your frizz. It might look totally weird wiping your entire head of hair with dryer sheets, but anything to stay frizz free for the day, right?3) Instead of using foundation, switch to a light BB cream. BB creams are much less cakey, and will still give you that nice, sheer coverage!
