It’s officially the first day of Summer ’17 and I’m really excited. Not only because I celebrate my 30th birthday this year, but because I’m a summer baby and I love being outdoors. Thankfully there are many products that I love and continue to lust over and I wanted to share my top 5 summer beauty must haves for the season.
This foundation is tried and true when it comes to holding up in the blazing summer heat. With 20 long-lasting shades to choose from, the MAKEUPFOREVER Water Blend foundation is light weight with a water-gel formula that never looks caked on and dries down to natural finish. It’s ideal for all skin types in a huge 1.69 fl oz pump packaging that is sure to last you all summer long.
CLINIQUE PEPSTART Eye Cream, $26.50
This travel friendly eye cream offers a refreshing look and feel to the eyes. It immediately hydrates and perks up the under eye area just moments after application. I find that my concealer glides on better once I’ve allowed this eye cream to penetrate my fine lines. It’s cool touch during application and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh.
This moisturizer is unlike anything I’ve used before and I love it. It absorbs almost immediately into the skin. It has activated charcoal which is known to remove toxins from the surface of the skin. I like using this year round, but summer is most important because of all the time being spent outside. The formula is not oily at all and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and awake. It’s also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, and GMO-free.
NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion, $5.48
I know summer is brutal and putting on lotion can feel like a sticky mess, but the NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion is perfect for the summer months. First of all, it’s so convenient to moisturize in the shower, plus, this stuff feels amazing on wet skin and you don’t feel sticky after use. Skin is left soft and velvet smooth after using this.
I could not end my list of top 5 summer beauty must haves without an amazing concealer. This concealer is full coverage without feeling heavy. Its long wearing formula delivers natural, radiant coverage to instantly brighten and cover acne, dark circles and redness while softening the look of pores and fine lines. It really stays put in this harsh heat.
