Summer Beauty Essentials

It is already summer in the deep south. We were only gone for a week, but as soon as we got back the heat and humidity had already set it. To get through the hot months, I have a specialized rotation of beauty products made for hot and sticky weather. Bring it on, summer. 

Benefit, Girl Meets Pearl: Because I have such fair skin I do not wear bronzer. I have never been able to find a product that does not make me look orange. So, to add a nice summer glow I turn to highlights. I'm a huge fan of this highlighter because it goes on easily and lasts. One swipe on your cheekbones and you are covered.  

Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder: I keep this powder in my purse to combat the humidity which can leave me shiny. This powder is sheer enough that it will not go on cakey and it comes in a large variety of shades. 

Olay Complete Daily Defense Moisturizer: The most important part of summer beauty care is protecting yourself from the sun. I do so with a daily moisturizer with sunscreen and I apply additional sunscreen when in the sun for prolonged periods of time. 

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral: Punchy lips are perfect summer. This tinted lip balm keeps lips hydrated with a kick of color. 

Essie Nailpolish in Chubby Cheeks: Coral really is my go to color for the summer. It looks great on your lips and toes too. This is my favorite shade by Essie. I'm almost in for a new bottle, that is how much I use it.
