Since it’s officially summer, it’s time to discuss some summer essentials. I’ll be going over my all-time favorite beauty products for summer. Here are the 9 beauty summer time essentials I can’t live without.
My favorite season is definitely summer. I love to sunbathe and go on vacation to a sunny destination. This summer I’ll be traveling to Turkey and stay there for 2 weeks to fully relax and lay on the beach/at the pool. I’m so excited! There are some products I just can’t miss when it’s summer time and I’m going to share everything I need this season with you today.
The 9 Beauty Summer Time Essentials I Can’t Live Without
1. Self Tan
The first thing I need in summer is a good self-tanner. I have a very light skin tone and I like to help my tan a little by self-tanning so I won’t look as pale as Snowwhite. I like to use the Bali Body Dark Self Tanning Mousse or the Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse. Both of them leave a gorgeous tan! Of course, this isn’t a necessity but a personal preference.
2. Shimmering Body Oil
Besides self-tan, I need body shimmering oils! I love to cover myself in shimmering oils when I’m wearing a skirt or a dress. I’ll be covering myself in Bali Body’s Shimmering Body Oil and Sol De Janeiro Glowmotion.
One of the most important products in summer time (actually all year round but especially summer) is sunscreen. Please don’t leave your house without sunscreen. It’s very important to protect your skin against the sun. I usually use factor 30 or 50 multiple times during the day.
Since I like to glow a lot, highlighters are a must. I like to wear a little less makeup but still using a pretty highlighter to give myself that natural glowing effect. Personally, I love Melt Cosmetics highlighters and the one I use the most is the Digital Dust Highlighter in Stargazer. Another favorite of mine is the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Flexitarian.
5. BB Cream
I don’t really like to wear foundation in summer but I sometimes feel like wearing some type of coverage on my face. One of the summer essentials I always reach for is a BB cream! My favorite one is the Bali Body BB Cream with SPF 15 or the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30.
As you might have noticed, I like to look dewy and glowy during the summer so I also love wearing a lipgloss. I like to wear them alone or on top of a lip liner or lipstick. My favorite lip glosses are the Kylie Cosmetics High Glosses and the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb.
7. Waterproof Mascara
I can’t live without mascara, I don’t like leaving the house without it so you better believe I always have tons of mascaras laying around. During the summer, I tend to use waterproof mascara more often because sweating and swimming won’t make a normal mascara last all day. My all-time favorite waterproof mascara is the Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara.
8. Mattifying Powder
One of the summer essentials I can’t live without is mattifying powder, especially waterproof powder. I like to set my makeup with a waterproof mattifying powder so my make stays in place even though I’m sweating. My favorite powder for this is the Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder. This is the only powder that keeps my makeup in place even though I’m sweating like a pig lol.
9. Hydrating Face & Body Creams
After a full day in the sun, I always make sure to moisturize my skin. For my face, I love to use the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid serum for hydration and on top of that a hydrating face creme, such as the Clinique Moisturizing Cream.
