DAY:

Using Chanel eyeshadow quad Vanities:
Apply lightest color to inner corner of top lid and brow bone.

Try Tom Ford violet, Lancome Black Coffee or MAC Teddy

With a small eyeshadow fluff brush put the darkest plum sideways < > in both outer corners of eyes.

This summer my wife and I are heading onto Interstate 40 to visit family in Dallas. Here are my 5 must-haves to make the hot dusty days on the road more comfortable.

Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Road Trip Beauty

1.) Herban Essentials Lemon anti bacterial towelettes for quick refreshing clean up.
2.) Chanel Red Lipstick because I never leave home without it – pick your favorite shade!
3.) Cle de Peau eye cream to freshen under my eyes after squinting across the miles.
4.) Dr Hauschka Translucent Pressed Powder to blot away any shine.
5.) Rosebud Salve to soften cuticles and hands (and use as lip balm too!)

Oh, and I can’t forget eye drops – so I can read the map and play that license plate game.

Let’s face it Flicksters, we want to look and feel good wherever we are!

Happy trails!

Cleanse, rinse, repeat, pat dry….starting out fresh is the reason why!

Here’s my personal skin care routine:

DAY:

Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Day and Night Skincare Routine

1. Murad Refreshing Cleanser 
I’ve been washing my face with this cleanser for over 25 years. It’s light and slightly sudsy.
2. Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum
A couple of pumps of this luxurious serum feels light, smells great and keeps my skin feeling hydrated
3. Dr Hauschka Revitalizing Day Cream 
A botanical lightweight moisturizer – smells good, feels good.
4. Cle de Peau Anti Rides Eye Baume 
My favorite eye cream. I use it with the concealer to wake up under eyes.
5. La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid spf 60.
This one is so light weight, it’s perfect under make up.

NIGHT:

Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Day and Night Skincare Routine

Face:
1. Murad Refreshing Cleanser, Murad AHA BHA Cleanser
At night I wash twice…first to break down make up and other impurities from being out in the day, second to lightly exfoliate.
2. NeriumAD Anti Aging Night Cream 
The results of this night time treatment are undeniable.
3. Smith’s Rosebud Salve
On my lips and cuticles for overnight protection from dryness.

Body:
4. I think the best treatment cream is Nerium Firm to smooth and tighten.
5. For a custom scented body lotion that sparkles I love Bath Bar Make me a Star Body Lotion. My favorite scent is neroli mixed with lemon. There are countless choices!

Let’s pretend that EVERY day isn’t crazy hair day when you’re a parent. This tutorial is probably more suited to your kids and those days when hair like this is required at school. Why isn’t that a thing for adults?

This beauty how-to is the perfect guide for going from a poolside BBQ to nighttime fireworks while keeping your sparkle!

Daytime:
Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - 4th of July Makeup

1.) Begin with SUNBLOCK!!!  My favorite is La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra Light Fluid.

2.) To even out your skin tone try Chanel Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow.

3.) For your cowabunga moment in the pool, keep your eyes smudge proof with waterproof mascara – any one will do.

4.) For a pop of color to suit your smile use a tinted lip balm.  I like Tarte Lip Tint.

For a quick change into the fireworks mode, burst onto the scene wearing our patriotic colors!

Nighttime:

Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - 4th of July Makeup

First freshen your skin with a spritz of Evian Spray Water and pat dry.

Using a fluffy brush dust MAC Studio Fix powder foundation followed by bronzer and/or blush.

Use a shimmery pale eye shadow.  Try Senna Sparkle eye color in Sand Glass. Next, rim your eyes with a blue pencil like Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner in Sapphire.

Swipe a red lipstick on your mouth either as a stain or full on color.

You are now star spangled ready!
