With summer in full swing, I wanted to share 7 of my summer beauty essentials with you! From makeup to skincare, these are all amazing options for the best summer glow this season!
Let’s start with Elta MD UV Elements SPF 44 Tinted Moisturizer. This lightweight tinted sunscreen is perfect for those days when you need maximum sun protection but also want to even out your skin tone just a bit! I love how moisturizing it feels without being too heavy or greasy for oily skin types. It also contains mineral sunscreen which is perfect for those with sensitive skin prone to breakouts.
I’m obsessed with Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm! This is the BEST Summer lip balm! Not only is it vegan, but it has such nice color payoff using all-natural ingredients. It also plumps those pesky lip lines while being super moisturizing. I really love shiny lip color that stays on my lips for a decent amount of time. Between that, the slim packaging and applicator, and the creamy, nonsticky formula, this is a major winner for me!
These NEW Chanel Les Beiges Water Fresh Blushes just launched and are so good, they HAD to be included in this post! This blush is a summer essential for that “no makeup” glow. The formula melts into your skin and literally looks like you have a gorgeous, natural flush. These are sheer and lightweight on my skin, which is perfect for the summer heat. My favorite shade is Warm Pink. It looks super deep in the bottle but is a medium, stunning, warm pink on my light-medium skin tone.
Next up – PUR Go with the Glow Niacinamide Drops. Sensitive skin care is so important for summer. Long days in the sun can cause damage, so a good vitamin C serum is essential! Add niacinamide, squalane, and numerous superfoods that smooth skin texture, even skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and you’ve got yourself a true powerhouse serum! These drops not only provide skin benefits but also give a beautiful moisturizing glow that leaves your skin feeling hydrated but never greasy. Go with the Glow is perfect for wearing under makeup and sunscreen!
For a summer glow with minimal effort, Isle of Paradise Night Glow Self-Tan Face Mist is your answer. This mist contains jasmine and argan oils, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin to help with redness, dullness, hydration, and uneven texture while you sleep as your gradual tan develops. This unique oil/water bi-phase mist activates when shaken and the two phases mix. I spritz Night Glow on before bed and wake up to a lovely subtle bronze glow. If I want a deeper tan, I repeat nightly. This is perfect for those of you who need to even out your (paler) face to your body.
The Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay is great year-round but is the perfect summer beauty essential. It’s hard to find a clay mask that doesn’t dry your skin out. Original Skin draws out impurities and gently exfoliates to boost radiance and refine texture…without drying your skin out. This mask not only leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth the following morning, but gives me noticeably brighter, more even-toned, calm skin…every single time I use it. This is my number one favorite mask! And it’s perfect for keeping your summer skin looking bright and healthy.
Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops are extremely underrated! Is your foundation too light for you in the summer or do you just want a bit of bronzed glow to your face? Instead of buying a deeper shade, mix in just a drop or two of D-Bronzi! It can deepen your foundations to the perfect summer shade…saving you from having to spend money on shades you may only wear a couple of months. It doesn’t change product texture and gives a gorgeous glow! These can be mixed into anything you can think of – foundation, serum, moisturizer, body lotion and more! A bottle will last you forever! D-Bronzy is great for giving all skin types (even sensitive and mature skin) the perfect bronzed look for summer. D-Bronzi is such a staple for me I’m on my third bottle!
