Since summer officially started yesterday (and I couldn’t be more excited) I thought I would share the beauty products that I will be using ALL summer long! In the summer I like to use products that are quick, easy, and long lasting. Check out my thoughts on all of these fantastic products:
one / watt’s up highlighter / $30
I love using cream highlighters in the summer because they look so natural. This champagne highlight from Benefit is my favorite–it looks great on fair skin tones!
two / tarte eyeshadow palette / $36
These creamy eyeshadows come in a compact case that is perfect for on the go makeup applications! Plus the beautiful bronzy shades are prefect for summer
three / it cosmetics cc cream / $38
With hot and humid weather in summer I love wearing a lighter foundation, but I still want medium-full coverage, which is what this product offers! It also has SPF 50 which is perfect for protecting your skin from the sun.
four / facial spray with rose water / $7
I love freshening up with facial mists during the summer and this one is my favorite because it contains aloe, rosewater, and other herbs that your skin will love too! (you cant beat the price either)
five / moroccan oil / $34
In the heat of the summer I try to avoid using heat on my hair as much as possible as it already gets baked when I’m out in the sun. When my hair is feeling dry or brittle I use a small amount of this oil and it feels so silky and smooth + it smells great too!
six / nyx butter gloss / $5
I like to opt for a gloss in the summer instead of a heavy lipstick and these butter glosses from NYX are my all time fav from the drugstore! These have a perfectly creamy formula that allows for amazing color payoff and they’re only $5! The color shown is “Angel Food Cake” which is one of my favorites.
seven / cargo eyeshadow stick / $20
This eyeshadow stick is no joke–a super creamy formula packed with pigment and staying power makes it a perfect product for a super quick summer look. The color I have is “Glacier Bay” which is a beautiful champagne color that I also use as a highlighter! This product is only available online at Ulta but it can also be found at Kohl’s stores that carry makeup.
eight / micellar water / $9
Micellar water is great for cleansing the skin and removing makeup especially if you have sensitive skin–no annoying scents and it feels the same as water on the skin!
nine / becca backlight priming filter / $38
This primer leaves your face with a soft glow while moisturizing with vitamin E, creating a youthful looking skin look for the summer.
ten / miss dior blooming bouquet perfume / $78
With notes of pink peony and damascus rose, this scent is perfect for summer! This is actually the perfume that I use all year long and it smells sooo good!!
