After being on a constant hunt for the best Summer beauty products, I have fiiiiinally rounded up my favorites that will have you guys achieving that much-needed Summer glow, and in no time. It’s so difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for these days. And let’s face it, the options and brands you see on the shelves are endless… which is exactly why I wanted to share these products with you guys (babes that glow together, stay together!!!)
Since there’s nothing better than golden glows on the daily, the products I’m gonna present to you now are all part of my everyday routine. So enough chit-chat… let’s get down to businesssssss.
Coola’s Sunless Tan Face Serum & Makeup Setting Spray
I tried these two Coola products for the first time last week. After just one application, I became absolutely obsessed. The sunless tan face serum is seriously the most natural-looking self tan I have tried out. I just mix it into my moisturizer which helps me match the face serum to my skin tone. It doesn’t have that typical self tan scent and it honestly dries so quickly… such a bonus for when I’ve clicked snooze a billion times and have to be fresh-faced in literally 9 seconds. The serum is also so ideal for us city-living-ladies that really really need (and miss) European Summer rays.
Coola’s make up setting spray is perfect for New York’s humidity. With its SPF 30 factor, this baby is just saving my life right now. And did I mention that Coola’s products are all organic?! Seriously loving them.
Bare Minerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo
When it comes to using this product, it kinda feels like I’m cheating on my Laura Mercier powder (which I absolutely looooove). After recently trying out this bad boy, I cannot get enough of its super lightweight feel, which is so important for Summer (no one wants to have layer-after layer-feels on their face). It also has a ‘glow’ option in the pack… perfect for amplifying your Summer flawlessness.
OUAI Haircare Masks
My hair was so dry at a stage that it even lost its shine for a little while. I was honestly so upset at my hair’s condition because I’ve never battled with dry hair (and my hair is literally my proudest possession). After trying out my first OUAI hair mask, I saw such a difference. So I seriously recommend this mask to anyone experiencing what I did! And during the Summer time, it’s particularly important to keep your hair healthy, and looking and feeling its best, which is exactly what these masks are great for. Now I do a mask once a week to keep my hair absolutely healthy & happy.
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipsticks & Mineral Moist Complex
I have tried out a fair share of lipstick brands and MAC is by far my favorite (I literally have at least one MAC lipstick with me 24/7). I absolutely love the nude shades from this Mineralize Rich range. They’re just so light, fresh, and they enhance a natural-looking glow… basically perfect for Summer. My fave colors? Rare Breed and Fashion Pack.
On to the MAC 77-Mineral Moist Complex…. it gives my lips moisture to the max and its lightweight, non-sticky formula instantly revitalizes my lips. I usually apply this before hitting the beach when on vacay, otherwise about ten minutes before applying lipstick – this way, my lips are less likely to have that crackly look & feel under my matte lipstick.
Cover FX Enhancer Drops
If you have been following my blog from the beginning you know I completely swear by this product. You want the ultimate highlight? Well, this is the answer. One of my ultimate faves, a little goes a long way.
Quick tip: add a drop to a little eye shadow… it becomes the most amazing combo you will ever lay your eyes on! It just makes your eyes pop and seriously lasts forever as opposed to normal shadows.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder
Just the product to complete my sun-kissed Summer glow, a few swooshes seriously do the trick. Bronzed beach beauties, just without the beach (no one will ever know!)
