So it’s summertime! My favorite season. And I wanted to share a few of my summer beauty must haves with you, because that’s fun, right? My M.O. in the summer is minimalism and keeping things natural. I don’t use any heat products on my hair, I use natural makeup on my face, and I lather up on the sunscreen, all day every day. Best thing you can do for your skin, people! Best. Thing. Since I like to keep things pretty natural and “sun-kissed” on my face, I definitely love adding pops of color here and there, like a fun bright nail, because, helloooo, it’s summer! And what other season is as fun, carefree and wild as summer? Exactly. So, without further ado, let’s get into my summer beauty favorites.
Sunscreen. Gotta protect your precious skin! Plus, it makes for a great moisturizer and skin primer! ;) I’m loving the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Lotion with SPF 30 (that’s key!). It smells like coconut. ‘Nuff said.
Bronzer. Any bronzer, it’s all good. And a little goes a long way! Just brush on enough for that perfect sun-kissed glow.
BB cream. Foundation can feel too heavy for a hot summer day. I love BB or CC cream. It covers just enough to even out skin tone without caking up yo’ face. Nobody wants that.
Mascara. My favorite beauty product, in case that hasn’t been made clear around these parts. (Spoiler alert: I talk about mascara a lot, because I love it so). I just tried this Maybelline one for the first time and I’m a fan! Not my favorite, but it definitely makes the eyes pop!
Fun nails. Bright colors are my favorite for summer, in shades of coral, pink and blue! My current fave? Essie’s “Haute as Hello.”
And that’s it! My ultimate list of summer beauty essentials. Now all I need is a good magazine, a big pair of sunglasses and a pool and I’m good to go! Oh, Summer, how I love thee.
And now for my summer uniform:
bralette: c/o riffraff (here)
shorts: c/o riffraff (here) [Get 10% off your Riffraff order with code KATIEDIDWHAT]
sandals: target (this year’s style here)
Cute shorts, a tank top, a pretty bralette and some fun sandals. Boom. Easy, peasy.
