Shades of Blue and Coral

We’re ready for the weekend.  And, this time around, we’re favoring shades of blue and coral. Whether it’s a sapphire tone or the color of the sea, we can get enough of calming shades of blue.  As for coral, warm up with soft tones and get heated with deeper, spicier shades.  No matter what shade you choose, Susan Posnick colors will finish your look with COLORME blush in Lotus Sun, COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Miami, and our COLOREYEDEFINE pencil in Sapphire Liner/Ametrine Shadow.

A few other favorites:

The Sadie Mixed Media Silk Tank

Juan Carlos Obando Silk Skirt for J.Crew

K.Jacques Epicure Sandal

Exotic Cuff Bracelet

Mariniere Hat 

Smythson iPad Air Case

 

 

 

 

Memorial Day Weekend Essentials

makeup

Here are the beauty essentials for your Memorial Day weekend!  Shop COLORESSENTIAL nude lipsticks (with just a hint of color) for the perfect natural glow.  Our suggestions are shades BOCA, LA, or DUBAI. You’ll be too busy to look for a mirror for application and lip gloss will slide off in the heat.  You also need our COLORFLO Bronzer for a sun-kissed look with sun protection. Next on our list? A flirty dress. You need the perfect sundress (like the Saint James Corvette Dress by Ann Mashburn) for the weekend. Pair it with a great book like “The Goldfinch”  (noted recently to be the best book to take on a plane) and you’ll be on your way to a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend in no time.

Feeling Peachy

What are your summer style essentials?  Beach season is just around the corner and we’ve shared some items to keep you stylish – poolside!  First on our list: Susan Posnick’s COLORESSENTIAL in Boca. Boca is a light pink shimmery coral shade that pairs well with anything, especially a summer glow.  Add this light and airy dress from Bungalow 8 and the Muzungu Sisters to your list.  You can’t go wrong with light and airy beach towels from Serena and Lily that can also be used as wraps.  Stay protected with a sun hat from Prymal and BRUSH ON BLOCK.  And, you can’t go wrong with whipping up some Blood Orange Margarita Popsicles for a refreshing treat.

Stay Protected This Summer with Cover Clothing

Gray Malin for Cover Clothing

As you know, sun protection is extremely important at Susan Posnick Cosmetics. With products like BRUSH ON BLOCK and COLORFLO, you are adding an essential part of sun protection to your daily beauty routine.  We also support other brands who work to keep you safe from the sun’s harmful rays.  One of these brands, is Cover.  Cover is a clothing and swimwear company founded by Lisa Moore and Robyn Stevens in 2007. They were the first to recognize the need for stylish sun protective clothing for women of all ages. As young moms, they spent countless hours in the sun and water protecting their children’s skin, but found limited choices to protect their own. PROTEC SWIM JERSEY® is cover’s own specially constructed fabric made of highly opaque micrfofibers. The UPF 50+ certification means that it blocks 98% of UV rays. Since the protection is physical (not chemical), cover will keep you covered, even with daily wears and washes. Get your cover damp, and it will keep you cool in the hot sun.

We are thrilled to share a Q&A with Lisa Moore of Cover Clothing Today and are in love with their new collaboration with Gray Malin.

SPC:  How did Cover Swimwear come to be?

Lisa Moore: I found that I was spending countless hours in the sun swimming with my children and couldn’t find a chic, easy solution to keep my skin protected from sun damage.

SPC: How does Cover Swimwear work? How does it protect you versus standard clothing and swimwear?

LM: Protect Swim Jersey is our special fabric weave made of highly opaque microfibers.  It blocks 98% of UV rays.

SPC: How do you protect your skin from the sun?  How will you stay protected this summer?

LM: I don’t need to apply sunscreen to the skin that is covered, but I use SPF 45 on my face, neck, and hands. I also wear hats when in the sun for a prolonged period of time.

SPC: How do you care for Cover Swimwear?

Susan’s Favorite Green Smoothie

green smoothie

If you are looking for a detox, healthy breakfast, or simply an energizing refresher, try Susan’s favorite green smoothie. With her Magic Bullet Blender, she begins with her Amazing Meal powder.  Amazing Meal combines green superfood with plant based protein, fruits, and vegetables.  It’s a 100% whole food nutrition mix filled with protein and fiber.

She blends this mix with organic Italian kale, cucumber, and summer fresh fruit or organic frozen fruit.   Sometimes, she will blend in almond milk or coconut milk. The fresher the produce, the more delicious this smoothie is.  For hot days, add a bit of crushed ice or extra frozen organic fruit.   And, for an extra immune boost, add cinnamon, turmeric, and flax seed oil.

And, if you are in the market for blenders, Susan highly recommends the Magic Bullet – it’s easy to use and clean!
