Spring has sprung and summer is just on it’s way. With that brings beach bodies, beach waves and fun summer beach nights. Summer is the perfect time to talk beauty strategy, because chances are we're more concerned with makeup melting and summer skin. I know I am! Today I wanted to share some of my summer beauty favorites and how I get my beach glow all summer long. After all, you never know when an unexpected girls night could happen. Must. Be. Prepared.
1// Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs – The summer time means more time outside and I want less fuss in the bathroom getting ready. But in these few transition months and beyond, how do I quickly get a great glow? Sally Hansen! It’s like makeup for your legs and is water resistant! A makeup artist (many rave about it) taught me to apply with a great powder/foundation blending brush to get a good effect. Blend and enjoy!
2 // A matte pink lip that best fits your skin tone. I have realized importance of an ‘everyday color’ for my lips each season, so I try to stick to a few signature hues and mix it up at night.
3 // A great bronzer that will double as a little contouring if necessary.
4 // A Cream blush. In addition to an extremely light foundation, I always stick to a super light cream blush. Use for lips and cheeks alike!
5 // Waterproof mascara. I recently talked about the beauty tips I received from a celebrity makeup artist for the ACMS and he said to use waterproof mascara as a final coat! Layer as normal, finishing off with your curling layer of waterproof. It will be a little harder to scrub off at the end of the day, but so worth it.
6 // for summer. Be sure the palette covers all your bases, though – at least one dark color for a Smokey eye if necessary. Of course.
7 // A light and fresh scent. I highly recommend a signature scent for each season!
8 // A wide toothcomb. I have started to use this little comb more and more! It’s so much better for our hair than a brush.
9 /// Dry Shampoo. A great dry shampoo to go is perfect for any summer bag. It is definitely among the high up areas of my beauty bag.
I hope you enjoyed some of my summer beauty picks. Are you obsessed with any of these as much as I am? Please do let me know in the comments!
