Summer 2019 Beauty Must Haves

Hello Everyone!


I mentioned this in my last post, but it's soooooo hot outside. It's supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend, so I can imagine what the Summer is going to feel like this year.


For today's post I'll be sharing a few of my must have beauty products for the upcoming Summer. I didn't include highlighters since I just shared my highlighter collection. You can view that post HERE

Skincare Must Haves


My skin acts up during the Summer. Typically I have oily skin, so I have to use face products that helps reduce oil. Overall my skin starts feeling dry during extreme heat. It's been in the 90's here lately so I've already experienced dry skin lol. That's partly my fault since I skipped lotion lol. No time like the present to rectify a potential problem. Here are a few of my current skincare product I've been using to prepare my skin for the Summer.


Since my skin is oily during the Summer, I'll probably use these Clinique cleansers for my face. For the days my face needs hydration I like to use the hydrating jelly. This is good to use as a primer before you apply your makeup. The towelettes work amazing for makeup removal and the towelettes are good to use when you want to refresh your face.


I went back to CVS to get the Dove Mousse for free. I had CVS Extra Care Bucks and a coupon that I used.  Argan Oil is good for your skin and it smells really nice. I like to use Cetaphil for my elbows to restore hydration I mentioned in numerous posts that I have eczema on my elbows. Thankfully it's not that problematic, but I do have dryness. I wanted to switch up my deodorant, so I switched back to Dove. This is my first time trying the advanced care deodorant. I don't have sweating issues under my arms. I just really like the scent lol.


During the Summer I typically only use body sprays.  I love wearing perfume, but body sprays are so lightweight. Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds body care smells so good! I've been using Derma E Psorzema Cream and Lubiderma for over a year, and my skin feels  and looks so healthy. I forgot to show this Qtica Nail Treatment, but my nails grow and strengthen when I used this product.

Makeup Must Haves


As much as I love makeup, I try to keep my makeup looks simple as possible when it's hot. Heavy makeup in the Summer is a no for me, not to mention heat and heavy makeup can cause clogged pores and breakouts. Here are a few of my favorites that I plan on using for the upcoming months.



I know I ranted about the Naked Heat should've been a Fall release, but It is a beautiful palette to use during the Summer. I love wearing bright colors, and the James Charles Palette is perfect to create fun, bold, colorful looks. Morphe is one of my favorite drugstore brands and the quality of their palettes are great. I don't know where I'll be going this Summer, but my UD Born to Run Palette will make a great travel palette. I did get Tarte's Icy Betch Palette. Is Summer really Summer without beautiful shades of blue?!


Red and Nude lipsticks are my go to colors for Spring and Summer. I also threw in pink shade from Pixi. To keep my makeup in tact, I use my holy grail setting sprays from Urban Decay. I've been using the UD setting Sprays for a few years and they're life changing! Seriously you need these setting sprays. 


I recently updated my foundation, concealer, and face powders. I like to use more lightweight natural looking makeup in the Summer since it's so hot and humid in South Carolina. I love wearing a dewy foundation in the Summer as well.


What are your favorite beauty products for the Summer?

I love a red lipstick all year round, but in summer the orangey reds are what I reach for the most. And a lightweight lotion as last step to keep my skin in check.

Love the red lipsticks.

100 degrees OMG! It was 87 here on Monday but then it dropped back down. That is truly nuts.

Yes I change up routine as well. I too wear less makeup. It is hard to wear a lot of makeup in super humid weather. I use a self tanner so I then use less foundation and I play up my brows and lashes.

I am currently using that Lubriderm body lotion and it is pretty good and affordable.

Orangey red are gorgeous during the Summer especially with a bronze eye makeup look! Since it's so hot here, I like to use moisturizer at night and a lightweight lotion during the day.

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Gracias Carolina!

Pilar said...

Thanks, and you're welcome!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

I know! Allie it's so hot here right now! On a good week during the Summer I might wear makeup twice, and I try to keep it light lol. It's just too hot! Lubridem is a good moisturizing body lotion.

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Thanks Marie! I was lucky to find Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds last year at the SAS! I hope this scent returns as well!

Pilar said...

Thanks Cris! I wish the weather wasn't so hot here! I try to stay indoors as much as possible because the heat is just unbearable lol! Have a great weekend!

Pilar said...

Thanks T! Have a great weekend!

It's crazy that it's already so hot by you Pilar! Do take care and stay cool. I usually amp up my sun protection and switch to more lightweight products for the summer and really go minimal with my makeup. I gave up foundation last summer and have never gone back.

Ivana Split said...

It's great to read about your make up routine and favourite beauty products in summer. During summer it is best to stay away from heavy make up, I do agree with that. I tend not to wear a lot of make up in general, but in summer I wear even less. Typically I just wear sunscreen and sometimes lipstick during the warmer months. Those palettes look lovely. Your collection of foundations looks great! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Take care with the heat, it can be exhausting, especially if you have an iron deficit. I didn't mind the heat when I was younger, but now warm weather makes me tired.

All this product are awesome foundation rocks and Clinique is a must have.

Marie said...

Fingers crossed for Boardwalk Marshmallow Cloud to return!

Pilar said...

I know right!

Pilar said...

I've been staying hydrated by drinking a lot of water and staying indoors as much as possible. It's just so hot outside. I'm currently switching my foundations to lightweight on the days I'll be wearing makeup. When it's hot and humid like it is these past few days I'll skip foundation.

Pilar said...

Thanks, and you're welcome Ivana! I don't wear a lot of heavy makeup in general. I like more natural makeup looks. Wearing sunscreen in this type of weather is so important. It's funny you mentioned that. I didn't even know having iron deficiency could cause exhaustion until my doctor told me last year. I feel so drained if I'm outside in the heat too long. I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!

Pilar said...

Thanks Liana!

Thanks Jackie!
