10 Must-Have Summer Beauty Essentials

10 Must-Have Summer Beauty Essentials

Now is the perfect time to discuss summer beauty! Switching up your beauty routine in the warmer months is key to getting that summer glow and keeping it going strong. I have several beloved summer beauty essentials to share today, from lightweight makeup to refreshing skincare to protective body products that will make you look and feel fabulous all season long. All of these are must-try products for this summer that I think you’ll love!

Summer Beauty: Makeup 

Summer makeup is all about effortless beauty with lightweight formulas, dewy finishes, and pops of color that reflect the carefree vibe of the season. It’s simply about highlighting your natural glow while trying to beat the heat. These four products are perfect for glowy summer beauty.

Tatcha The Kissu Lip Tint

I’ve tried a lot of tinted SPF lip products and they all have their drawbacks. This new lip tint from Tatcha is the most enjoyable SPF lip tint I’ve tried in a long time. It has SPF 25 with a lightweight, hydrating formula. It comes in three shades and not only provides a beautiful sheer tint but also the moisture needed to avoid dry, cracked lips from the summer heat. It feels truly comfortable, making it ideal for wearing on hot summer days when heavier lip products might feel suffocating. If my lips have felt particularly dry, it layers well over a lip balm too. I’ll be reaching for this tinted SPF lip tint to protect my lips all summer long.

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Sunbasque

When I heard MAC Sunbasque was supermodel Giselle Bündchen’s go-to blush, I had to try it out. I’m so glad I did because it didn’t disappoint! This bronzed peachy blush became a quick favorite blush for achieving a fresh, sunkissed, bronzy glow. This shade also suits a wide range of skin tones, from fair to deep, adding a stunning natural flush of color without looking overdone. Whether rocking a bronzed look or opting for a natural, no-makeup makeup vibe, this blush will enhance your summer beauty routine effortlessly.

DRMTLGY Luminous Eye Corrector

It’s always ideal to have extra sun protection around the eye area. That’s why this undereye corrector is a summer beauty essential. It gives SPF 41 sun protection, correction, and hydration. The lightweight formula blends out easily and doesn’t crease or look cakey. It’s also packed with nice ingredients to brighten and diminish the appearance of dark circles and puffiness that late nights, outdoor activities, or increased sun exposure can cause. This is a fantastic daytime under-eye corrector for anyone of any age!

One/Size On ‘Til Dawn Setting Spray

Setting Spray is pretty much a non-negotiable step in extreme heat and humidity. On ‘Til Dawn is one of my favorites when I want to ensure my makeup looks fresh through anything and everything. It doesn’t change the finish of my makeup and keeps it looking perfect through sweat, heat, and humidity. Yet it somehow never feels sticky or drying. This is a must-have in my makeup collection that I simply won’t be without – ever!

Summer Beauty: Skincare

When it comes to summer skincare, it’s all about adapting to the changing weather and ensuring your skin stays healthy, hydrated, and protected from the sun’s rays. Prioritizing your skincare during the summer is essential, and I love to do that with these products.

OLEHENRIKSEN Pout Preserve Hydrating Peptide Lip Treatment

This lip treatment has become one of my top favorites. It’s hydrating, nourishing, and insanely comfortable. I have it in Strawberry Sorbet and adore the scent/flavor so much! It has lip-specific Peptides to help them look fuller and more defined, plus kokum, mango seed butter, and cloudberry oil to soothe, condition, soften, and provide intense moisture. I use it in the morning and at night or basically any time of day. It’s one of my most used lip products for keeping my lips soft and smooth.

Glow Recipe Cloudberry Bright Essence Toner

This all-in-one essence + toner is a year-round essential skin care product for me. It’s great for all skin types to visibly brighten, hydrate, and seal in moisture. It also strengthens skin and works as a serum booster to maximize the absorption and benefits of the products you use after it. Our skin can get really stressed from summer heat and sun exposure. This is a great product to mitigate that stress, soothe, hydrate, and brighten. I use it as the first step after cleansing morning and night because my skin feels and looks better when I use it!

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Cream Oil-Control Face Moisturizer

This moisturizer helps hydrate and prep my skin for the daytime. The lightweight gel formula is specifically designed to control oil and shine, helping to balance skin and keep it fresh throughout the day. It also helps minimize the appearance of pores and reduces the likelihood of breakouts, making it an ideal choice for combo to oily summer skincare!

Summer Beauty: Body

In the summer, your body’s skin must be given extra attention to keep it healthy and glowing. Below are body products that will ensure your body is ready to shine confidently all season These will be my go-to products this summer!

Sol de Janeiro Rio Radiance SPF 50 Body Spray Sunscreen 

We all know and love Sol de Janeiro perfumes and lotions, and now they’ve added sunscreens to their line. This spray sunscreen became a quick favorite for loads of people when it launched. It offers high-level protection, shielding your skin from sun damage, and helping prevent sunburn and premature aging. The formula is lightweight, never leaving that unwanted greasy or sticky residue that body sunscreens can be known for. Lastly, this sunscreen leaves a luminous sheen on your skin, giving you a sun-kissed glow that complements your summer tan! 

MinimLA Body Glow Oil + Brush 

This non-greasy, lightweight body oil is made to enhance your skin’s natural glow. It can be applied directly to your skin for a natural luminous glow, mixed with your favorite body lotion for added hydration and shimmer, or even as a highlighter on your collarbones, shoulders, and décolletage to accentuate your summer tan! It’s so easy to use and makes your skin look (and smell) gorgeous! This is a must-have staple for me!

Biossance Squalane + Caffeine Toning Body Cream

I love using this body cream to provide intense hydration to my skin without feeling heavy or sticky. This kind of moisturizer is much needed in the summer when we’re more exposed to heat and sun. What makes this body cream stand out from others is the key ingredient: caffeine. Caffeine is supposed to boost circulation to give a smoother more toned look and slightly reduce the appearance of cellulite. Every little bit helps when we’re exposing more skin right?! This is definitely a summer beauty must-have!

With these 10 summer beauty essentials in your arsenal, you’ll be ready to take on the season with confidence. It’s clear that the summer season calls for a combination of lightweight, hydrating, and protective products to keep you looking and feeling your best. Happy glowing!
