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.
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.
