Summer Beauty Must-Haves For A Sizzling Season

Summertime is coming and now is the time to stock up on all the summer beauty must-haves that will keep you smoking hot during the sweltering months. Let’s jump right in!

Summer Beauty: Makeup

First things first my lovely — sun protection. No matter how good your makeup looks, risking sun damage is not an option so start with a lightweight sunscreen like Julep No Excuses Invisible Gel Sunscreen. It’s truly weightless and offers broad spectrum protection with SPF 40.

The last thing you want during the sweltering summer heat, is makeup that melts. Give your regular foundation a rest and keep it light with a tinted moisturizer. Try NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30. Available in 12 shades, $45 at Sephora.

Also, take a serious look at one of my all-time favorites, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water SPF 30. It offers flawless coverage and is as light as air. Total winner! $42 at Smashbox.com and get 25% OFF of a $50+ purchase through 6/11 using CODE SBXFF2017.

Sweat-proof eye makeup begins with eyeliner that doesn’t budge. Ditch your plain old pencil this summer and opt for a liquid or gel or a gel pencil! Try the e.l.f. Waterproof Gel Eyeliner which offers the staying power of a gel in an easy-to-apply pencil package or Hourglass Voyeur Waterproof Liquid Liner.

No sexy summer look would be complete without breathtaking lashes and no mascara does awe-inspiring lashes like Too Faced Better Than Sex. Available in a regular formulation and a waterproof version, Better Than Sex is a no-brainer. Get the deluxe sample size for $12 or the full size for $23 at Sephora.

Put a little natural-looking color in your cheeks with a Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel. They’re easy to apply, stay put all day and can be layered under bronzer or powder blush. My favorite shade is Flushed.

Keep unwanted shine at bay with a finely milled translucent powder. If you’re a loose powder lover, try Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder. For pressed powder fans, pick up the very portable NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder for a soft matte finish that still looks luminous. 





Summer Beauty: Body Care

Keep your skin silky smooth by exfoliating with a good scrub. Try the deliciously scented Exfoliating Sugar Cubes from Harper + Ari. Available in several fruity flavors, these body scrubs are almost good enough to eat.

Of course, waxing lasts longer than shaving but just in case you get caught between appointments and need a quick deforestation, make sure you have some super sharp Dorco Shai razors on hand. Get one handle and 10 cartridges for less than $20!

burts-bees-radiance-lotion-summer-must-haves

An all-over glow and touchable skin can easily be yours this summer with Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion. Made with Royal Jelly and packed with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, this nearly all-natural lotion will leave your skin nourished and quenched. All for $7.99 at Target


Summer Nails

Formula X The System Xcel Nail Polish

There are two ways to play your summer manicure, hot or cool; but whichever way you go, I highly recommend the Formula X The System Nail Essentials Set. (Check out my full review here!) It is amazing at extending the life of your manicure, no matter which shade you choose. Regularly $16, now ON SALE for $8 at Sephora!

    I’ve tried Smasbox before and was quite surprised with the results. It’s helpful to find products that will ensue your makeup is tight all day long!

    I love Pixi products, SO I will be on the lookout for that cheek gel today! And living in Atlanta, the only thing I can wear in the summer is the tinted moisturizer! Anything else would be useless!

      I know what you mean, New York’s heat and humidity is no joke.

    I just need an hour with you to get me a little beauty routine education. I keep it simple but I could use some help. LOL
