My Summer Beauty Must Have Products

Last week, I posted my favorite summer beauty look. A bright hot pink lip and champagne eyes. You can find the full look here. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite summer beauty products. Consider this a special summer edition of my Everyday Favorites series. Here are my top 10 in no particular order. Let me know in the comments if I missed any of your must haves!

1. Revlon Colorstay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten - I am totally addicted to these. My favorite for summer is Smitten. It looks darker in the pencil, but ends up quite bright on my lips. These are moisturizing and last forever on my lips. I have a review in the works so be sure to check back.

2. Jergens Natural Glow Face and Body Moisturizers - I love a tan and do lay out by the pool occasionally, but much prefer to fake it. These give me a glow but don't turn me too brown or orange. I especially love how the facial moisturizer instantly makes me look brighter and more refreshed.

3. Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunblock - This is an oldie and a goodie for me. I started using this in early high school when I played tennis everyday. It has never ever let me down. It works through sweat and swimming on my skin. It comes in a ton of different SPF levels and doesn't smell too heavily of sunblock.

4. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils - These glide on smooth and stay put, period! They also come in a great variety of colors, like an electric blue that are perfect for a bright summer look.

5. L'Oreal Color Riche Le Balm in Caring Coral - I am addicted to these. I must admit that I didn't have much luck with their competitor (Revlon Lip Butters), but these work perfectly for me. They glide on very smoothly and deliver rich moisture with a hint of color


6. Avon ExtraLasting Mascara - This formula isn't quite waterproof, but it holds up so well and can be removed fairly easily.  That being said, I have worn it in the pool with only minimal flaking or smudging afterwards. I love the size of the brush and the definition it gives my eyes.


7. Tarte  Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful- I have a few different colors of these, but my favorite for summer is Blissful (a warm peach). These last for hours and hours on me while providing a natural flush.


8. The Body Shop Bronzing Powder - The particular bronzer I use is several years old and no longer available, but their newer bronzing makeup products are just as good. The powders come in several different shades and finishes, providing the perfect amount of coverage for easy contouring.

9. China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Hey Sailor - This is my favorite color for pedicures. A bright poppy red that feels both fresh and classic. I seem to turn to this color each time I do my toes during the summer.


10. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle - I have written about this product before (full review here), and can't get enough of it during the summer. It leaves my hair soft, silky, and moisturized, even after hours in the pool or out in the sun.

So there you have it. My top 10 favorite beauty products for summer. There are certainly many more products I rely on, but those are the ones I have kept turning to over the past few months. What's on your list?

Stay beautiful!
