We are excited to have Jaimi Brooks, beauty expert extraordinaire and founder of Fiore Beauty, sharing some great Palm Springs beauty tips and must-have products!
Now’s the time to be in Palm Springs, and today we’re talking beauty inspirations to strike your fancy for your desert rendezvous. A girl has to plan her beauty routine for any fun trip, and Palm Springs definitely has its own special style! Finding your Palm Springs-inspired look makes a trip to the desert that much more of a fun break from everyday life.
The most important thing to keep in mind for a desert-ready hot weather glam routine is to keep it simple; using just a few well-thought-out products that will have a lot of hot-mama impact, regardless of your style, is the way to go. Sexily undone hair (but not just plain undone of course, we’re not animals!), a sunny pop-of-color lip, and an easy but lovely complexion and you’re done!
Since Palm Springs is mid-century bliss and was the pool-fun playground of the rat pack and everyone else that was chic in that era, it only feels natural to channel a bit of your own modern day Marilyn. A hair scarf or a stunning turban is perfect to hide your un-done hair (though cute turbans can be tricky to find; try here, here and here). If you’re showing your hair, let it air dry and then douse it well with Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray for that sexy, purposely-undone look; no styling tools needed. Default your pops of color to red, keep your skin matte but still easy with Jouer’s Matte Tint, and finally let your curves shine with Kate Somerville’s Body Glow body lotion which has SPF and a skin perfecting finish.

An equally fun option on the other end of the style spectrum is going the boho flower child route. A tan base is important for this one and then a well-chosen pop of color. We’ve picked a few color-pop options for you; choose one or two (not all!) and then go neutral on everything else. A pop eyeliner with neutral lips and a cute, matte colored nail, oh yeah! Keep your hair hydrated with great, effortless texture with Josie Maran’s Argan Hair Mist, and then throw your hair into a messy pile and adorn it with this gilded headband.
