Summer Beauty Faves

Summer-Beauty-FavesThose of you who don’t think you need to change your beauty routine with each season are seriously kidding yourself.  With the sun, water and lotsss of heat it is important to use products that are summer friendly!  Here is a list of some of my favorite beauty products for summer:

1.  NARS Laguna Bronzer – If you are looking for the perfect bronzer, look no further.  This bronzer gives the skin the “I-just-spent-hours-laying-out” look without being too orange, too muddy, etc.  The subtle shimmer adds an amazing glow to the skin and doesn’t feel heavy in the summer heat!

2.  Milani Luminoso Baked Powder Blush – This blush looks amaze on tan skin!  Just like NARS Laguna, this blush gives you the perfect sun-kissed glow.  Plus you can buy this bad boy at the drugstore, making it a no brainer!

3.  Headbands With the temps soaring, I try to keep my curls up and out of the way as much as possible.  Headbands keep my hair out of my face while serving as an accessory for my outfit!  I am especially loving earthy looking headbands to give that boho vibe to a simple shorts and tee.

4.  Floppy Hats I have a huge head.  No joke, it is impossible to find hats that fit on my giant melon.  I’ve been drooling over large floppy hats for keeping the sun off my face {wrinkles start NOW, people!} but struggled to find one that was stylish and fit me.  By some miracle, I found an adorable white floppy hat while on vacation and I’ve been finding any excuse to rock it!

5.  Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Lotion This stuff is seriously AMAZING.  I have been religiously using this lotion after a day in the sun, and it works like a dream.  The hydration and aloe combination turns any burn to tan immediately, prevents peeling AND it smells like coconut papaya!  Fab.

6.  Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Screen – I’m sure I don’t have to lecture you on the importance of sunscreen.  However, this sunscreen has it all – broad spectrum {protects against both UVA & UVB rays}, smells good and is super hydrating!

7.  Maybelline Baby Lips in Melon Mania – No surprise here!  Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession with Baby Lips, and this limited edition shade is no exception!  It smells like watermelon, hydrates and gives some seriously fabulous color to the lips.  Talk about a triple threat.

8.  Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof Mascara A good waterproof mascara is a necessity in the summer.  Even if you’re not about to hop in a pool, the heat alone is enough to turn your mascara into panda eyes.  I love the volume my lashes get from this mascara, and it wears super well throughout the day.

What are your summer beauty favorites?  Have you tried any of these products? Is there anything I’m missing out on?
