Summer Beauty Essentials

Hi everyone! Summer is in full swing, and I love everything about it. I love the warm weather, summer fashion, and especially getting to use all of my favorite beauty products! Today I am going to share with you my must-have beauty essentials for summer.

Jergens Natural Glow Gradual Tanning Lotion in Medium to Tan – I have mentioned this in past posts, but I am OBSESSED with this stuff. I only use this on my legs, because for some reason they never get as tan as my arms do in the summertime. You don’t have to worry about using gloves with this, and it always comes out evenly and never gets streaky on me. It is a gradual tanner, so it just gives subtle color. It is perfect!

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Coconut Lime – this is an all over scrub that exfoliates your skin and smells AMAZING. It makes my skin soft and is nice to use before applying self tanner. There are a couple of different scents, but the Coconut Lime is my favorite.

Sexy Hair Curly Sexy Hair Curling Cream – I like to use a product like this when I don’t feel like blow drying my hair…which is a lot of the time. Unlike gel, this is a cream for your hair that doesn’t give that crunchy or wet look. I apply just a small amount to damp hair, and it looks like I have natural beachy waves in my hair when it dries. It also helps with frizz for those humid days.

Oh, bright nail color…you are my weakness. Seriously, nothing makes me happier (well, maybe donuts) than looking down at my nails and having a bright summery manicure! These are some of my favorite colors.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue – this color really looks good on the nails. It is a bright, island blue color that is unlike any other color in my collection. Every time I wear this, someone asks me about it. The formula of these nail polishes are awesome, and they have a big selection of colors.

Essie in Cute As A Button – The. Perfect. Coral. I have a coral addiction, and this coral is the prettiest I’ve seen. It isn’t a dark coral, it is a light coral that leans pink toned instead of orange toned. So pretty, and makes you look tan!

Maybelline Color Show in Lust For Lilac – This color is like a neon lavender. I own other pale purples and lavender colors, but this lavender is different. It has a bright quality about it that really stands out. It’s a great color for summer.

NARS Cream Blush in Enchanted – I love me some cream blush for summer. It is so easy to apply, and looks all glowy on the cheeks. This is an orange toned coral, but don’t be afraid, it goes on very sheer, and looks very flattering on practically every skin tone!

Lastly, I picked out three of these crayon-type lip products, because I love these for summer. You don’t need a gloss with any of these, so they are perfect to just throw in your bag and use when you’re on-the-go!

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Plum Jam – this is a very sheer berry red color that gives a lot of shine and smells like vanilla cupcakes! So pretty for a natural look on the lips.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Cherish – this is a bright pink color that is so good for summer. It is a stain, but it feels like a lip balm, and doesn’t dry out your lips.

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tint in Elite – I saved the best for last, y’all. Excuse me while I go to Sephora and buy every freakin’ color of this magical lip crayon. I never thought I would like anything more than the Revlon ones until I tried THIS. This color is seriously the prettiest coral pink, and oh baby does it stain. It’s like a sheer stain though, and it feels like butter on the lips. It has a minty type scent like the Revlon ones, and kind of tingles when you apply it. Can you tell I love this? Tarte never lets me down.

Ok, so that’s it for my summer essentials! What are your essential beauty products for summertime?

Thanks for reading! xx
