Summer is officially here! :) Around this time of year, I always receive a lot of questions asking about the perfect makeup for the hot and humid weather. Here are my top picks for the best refreshing, glowy, and melt-proof summer essentials.
1. Victorias Secret Sexy Escape "Sunset" Fragrance Mist
($35) The quintessential summer fragrance. Combines the perfect blend of fruity & floral notes and contains a generous amount of product (10 fl oz).
2. Knotted Hair Ties
($6) Cute & comfortable hair ties that double as colorful summer bracelets.
3. Sun Bum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion
($16) An oil free, non-greasy sunscreen formula that won't cause breakouts and has a light tropical scent.
4. Million Dollar Tan Sunless Tanning Spray
($26) Gives the most natural-looking fake tan on the market that's ideal for the face & body and doesn't streak or transfer.
5. Josie Maran Argan Color Stick
($22) A super creamy multi-tasking product that is perfect for the cheeks & lips. Instantly leaves a natural, rosy glow to the skin and blends flawlessly.
6. Elf Shimmering Facial Whip
($1) A whipped-textured cream that gives the beautifully radiant pop of shimmer to the highlights of the face (cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid's bow). A fabulous dupe for Benefit's ($26) High Beam!
7. John Frieda Frizz Ease "Dream Curls" Curl Perfecting Spray
($10) Gives curls definition & shape without sacrificing softness.
8. Maybelline "The Rocket" Waterproof Mascara
($7) Volumizing mascara that defines each lash for noticeably plump, clump-free lashes. The waterproof formula will not budge and holds a curl all day long.
9. Bourjois Bronzing Powder
($13) Ultra soft bronzing powder that effortlessly blends into the skin and gives a natural bronzed, sun-kissed look. Bonus: it smells like chocolate!
