I am pretty sure by now we are all aware of the adverse effects the sun can have on our skin if we do not protect it. As I live in a country where it is sunny 98% of the time, I am always looking for products that already have SPF in them. This Neutrogena hydration lotion with SPF 25 has been my ultimate summer beauty favorite. The formula for this is super light and it does not feel thick or greasy whatsoever. It actually leaves a nice glow to the skin and sits very nicely underneath makeup as well! The hyaluronic acid in this really helps to hydrate the skin while the SPF 25 helps protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Also, I usually do not like my face products to be scented but this one has such a nice and fresh scent to it that I am not even complaining.
Keeping on the topic of protecting your skin from the sun, here is another one you should try out. The first time i heard about this product, i was very intrigued by it. It is basically a sunscreen but in a face mist form. This product offers a really high spectrum of protection against UVA and UVB rays. It is completely invisible when you spray it on your face and does not leave any white marks or greasiness at all. I feel like this product is so unique and handy especially for those of us going on vacations. It is a known fact that sunscreens tend to wear off in 4-5 hours. Instead of having to apply sunscreen every 5 hours, you can simply spray some of this on to your face even if you have makeup on and you are good to go!
Summer Beauty is just not complete without a good old bronzer. If you want to get that beautiful, natural sun-kissed look then I highly recommend this Too Faced Soleil Bronzer. It comes in 3 different shades (chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate) to fit all different skin tones. If you, like are not a big fan of shimmery bronzers, then I highly recommend this. It is completely matte and what I love the most about it is that it is easily buildable and blends into the skin so seamlessly. Oh and guess what, it smells like real chocolate guys! It is actually made with 100% real cocoa powder!
I honestly do not what I did before getting MAC Fix Plus. There are so many different ways of using this from setting your face to making your eyeshadows pop. That being said, the reason this has quickly has become a summer beauty favorite of mine is that it does such a good job at refreshing and hydrating my skin. If you know you are going to be out in the sun for long and your makeup is likely to sweat, just take this with you. Spray it on your face throughout the day and it will help keep your makeup looking fresh and as sweat-free as possible!
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of summer beauty is highlighters. Let’s be honest, we all want to have beautiful, bronzed and glowy skin for the summer am I right! Well, this Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter by Becca in the shade Champagne Pop will help you achieve the glow-iest skin ever! This shade is described as a “Soft gold with peachy-pink pearl”. It has a creamy powder consistency. Not only does it have amazing pigmentation but it blends in super nice and is very easily buildable. Many highlighters can really exaggerate the texture on your skin but this one does not do that at all. I especially love it for summer because it is super long lasting. Even if the rest of my makeup comes off, I have noticed that this highlighter always stays in place!
Those are my current summer beauty favorites! I would love to know yours so leave them in the comments below. Also, let me know if you have tried out any of the products I have mentioned above!
