Woohoo! It's been a LONG time since I've done a beauty related blogpost and I'm so happy to be getting back into it! In today's blogpost, I'm going to be sharing with you a few of my spring and summer beauty must-haves.
Of course, beauty isn't defined by the outward appearance, but it is nice to dress up a little and take care of your skin. These few things are what help me feel confident in the spring time, and they're also my must haves.
Honestly, I've been loving a clean, fresh skin more than anything! And I've learned to embrace my spring/summertime freckles lol! It's all about knowing Who you were created by and learning to be confident in that. (;
Let's get into my Spring and Summer Beauty Must-Haves! I've tried my best to link all of these products mentioned below!! :)
So my first must have is a tinted moisturizer. It's a great way to leave your face with some coverage but not too much to get ruined by the hot sun throughout the day. This illuminating Neutrogena one is a personal fav of mine. It's super lightweight and leaves your skin with a healthy, natural glow. Bonus points for having an SPF in it too!
Next up, I love to have an eyeshadow palette for the spring that will brighten my eyes up. It's kind of like spring cleaning for your eyes, something new and fresh to play around with! Whether that be natural pink such as my new favorite by Too Faced (Natural Matte) or fun warm colors like the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. And it doesn't have to be a high end palette to look good! I have so many personal favorites I've found in Wet 'n Wild, Maybelline, and Makeup Revolution!
I love a plain moisturizer that leaves your natural skin radiating with a beautiful glow. That's exactly what this Glam Glow product does! I feel like one could go all spring and summer with wearing just this without foundation and look absolutely stunning. I've gone many days with just this on and I feel so confident. I also find my skin looks it's healthiest with the gorgeous glow this moisturizer provides! A moisturizer is needed for the spring/summer hot days anyway, so why not go with something that illuminates your skin?!
When those hot spring days come upon us and summer is just rounding the corner, I definitely need a waterproof mascara for the pool days! I know there are many waterproof mascaras out there and I absolutely adore this Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes mascara. It legitimately stays on my eyes all day when I'm having a pool day. I couldn't recommend enough for you to get one for these next months!
Another good thing to just brush on in the morning is a BB powder! It provides coverage but it's not a crazy, cakey amount like foundation. I love my Physicians Formula powder, it leaves me feeling confident while not have a ridiculous amount of makeup on out in the sun.
I love having a new, fun lippie to play around with in the spring and summer time! Pretty pinks add a really fun pop to your makeup. Pick a color and try it! This makeup revolution kit is super inexpensive and such high quality. I honestly just love the brand Makeup Revolution so much!
What would spring and summer be like if everyone's toenails were bare?! Lol! A must-have for me is nail polish. I love looking down at my sandals and seeing pretty colors. They really pull everything together and make for such a fun look! I personally love the brands Sally Hansen and Wet 'n Wild! (:
Next off, I'm gonna be completely honest...when it comes to summertime, my hair is a mess lol! My sister bought this Not Your Mother's beach babe soft wave sea salt spray and oh my goodness!!!! when my hair is a chlorine filled mess, I just take a couple spritz of this onto my damp hair and scrunch it for some beautiful beachy waves. The smell is good too, it smells like a tropical vacation haha! I just really recommend some sort of spray, the right kind can actually benefit your hair and prevent it from heat damage.
I have fallen in love with Zoe Sugg's Beauty line, "Zoella Beauty." Her beauty line is just so cute and you can tell she has put loads of work into it. I recently tried out her Wondrous Whip and this lotion is honestly ten times better than many other body lotions out there. It isn't greasy, it's not too perfume-y, I feel like it's just perfect for me! And in the summertime I have such a hard time with dry skin. This makes my legs and arms feel buttery smooth. I really recommend finding you a go to lotion/body butter that will benefit your skin type and add it to your collection.
I ain't gonna lie, chlorine, humid weather, and excess oil can be totally harsh on your face. Finding a face mask for your specific skin type is so important. I thought I'd throw in this one my sister uses because it's really inexpensive and it's very beneficial. It's only like $4 and it lasts such a long time!! It works just as well as a Lush facemask. The Freeman line has many different face mask formulas made for different face types. Do one once or twice a week before you shower! Let it be the last thing you wash off in the shower. This will get your skin back to being healthy and fresh.
One thing I love to add to my powder foundation in the spring and summertime is a bronzer. The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is a really good one. This just adds a pretty sun-kissed look to your makeup.
Lastly, this is really so basic that everyone tends to forget it. In the warmer months, your lips get chapped and they can peel bad if they're not taken care of properly. Lip's cracking- It's the worst feeling! I have come to love Maybelline's Baby Lips line. So find you a good Chap-stick, preferably with SPF, and tuck one in every bag, every corner of each room, and take care of your lips!!
I hope this helped you get your spring/summer beauty bag ready to roll! Comment below one of your must-haves!
Have a blessed week!
