Summer comes and our beauty routine changes. We use more lotions and sunscreens and less foundations and concealers; otherwise, our faces will melt off. Here’s the list of our editor’s summer beauty essentials that will get you through those hot days.
Coola has an amazing organic sunscreen line. The product feels great and is lightweight.
2. Lip Balm
No more chapped lips with Pixi’s lip balm. Also, the tints are very pretty.
3. A great shaving cream that will leave you feeling smooth
EOS’s (evolution of smooth) is a shea based shaving cream.
4. A great peach cheek for summer is a great way to look fresh and bright.
Nars’s Orgasm is a classic.
5. A great tan that doesn’t cause damage to your skin.
And affordable. Sally sells a line call Tanwise that has several options depending on what you exactly like. These two products are great and essential for an instant tan.
Secret: I love being gold. I can tan in the sun well, but I can burn even better. lol 👎🤪 I also can get super pasty which happens every winter (and I live in Cali where it's sunny all the time). I like being tanned (maybe its the New Jersey in me) because I feel vibrant and glowy. It also covers up spider veins and other skin imperfections.🙃😉 Did you know that Milky-white skin was a sign of wealth, status, and beauty in many cultures because only the working class had to work with their hands and outside? ☹️This celebration of pale skin lead to racism, prejudice, and stereotypes. Anyhow, a big part of taking care of your skin is preventing damage. This is why I fake tan (with lotions). Okay, I'm done here...lol Stay Bronzy my Friends🌞🌞. #glow #glowgang #tanning
6. Lightweight translucent powder to keep you matte
We love this powder from NYX because it also color corrects and is affordable. Keep the shine away with this line, that offers several color correcting colors.
I just finished this powder. I used it under my under eyes after concealer. It's loose enough and translucent enough to not cake and it great for dark bags. Super cheap and super accessible. Am I the only person that likes Ulta more than Sephora just because they are not in the mall? lol #panningcommunity @nyxcosmetics
7. A lot of moisturizer
Vitamin E is a great addition to your beauty routine. Summer can be very drying with the weather, pool and beach. This is definitely one of our summer beauty essentials.
