A Makeup Bag of Tricks

Higher temperatures and humidity levels can sometimes put a damper on our favorite summer looks. So we asked three local salons for the best beauty products to keep everything in place.

Easy On the Eyes & Hair

Sandy DiGregory, manager of Jeffrey Smith Salon, tells us the eye and hair care items that will keep you looking and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated during the warmer months ahead.

1. Nerium Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches, $40. Applying these patches weekly provides targeted moisturization to help soften the eyes and skin, and reduce puffiness.
