I absolutely love summer. The clothes, the sunshine, the activities, and of course, the makeup...they're all part of the summer experience. Each season, there are certain beauty products that I reach for. They help me look my best and combat the hot summer weather. If you're worried about oily skin, getting an even tan, or the most flattering makeup, stop stressing! These are some of the ultimate summer beauty products:
Summer Beauty Product: Gradual Tanner
If you want glowing skin this season, make sure you have a gradual tanner on hand. This is much easier to use than your typical self-tanner - and it's also better for your skin than getting a tan the old fashioned way. My favourite is the Jergen's Healthy Glow. It comes in different shades for a range of skin colours and gives your skin a summer ready glow. There are also great ones from L'Oreal and Sally Hansen. Don't be afraid to give them a try!
Summer Beauty Product: Tinted Moisturizer
Next up on our list of the ultimate summer beauty products is a tinted moisturizer. It's time to ditch heavy foundations and go for something a little more natural instead. A tinted moisturizer can help to even out your skin tone. It also gets rid of any redness and leaves you with a healthy, natural appearance. Bonus? Tinted moisturizers (like the one pictured above, from ELF) usually have an SPF included.
Summer Beauty Product: Bronze Shadow Palette
During the summer months, there is nothing better than gorgeous bronze eyeshadow shades. They're neutral but still give your eyes a pop! Plus, they totally compliment a tan. There are plenty of palettes to choose from, including the Naked 3 from Urban Decay or (my personal favourite) the Bronze Palette from Tarina Taratino.
Summer Beauty Product: Mattifying Powder
Last up on this beauty product list? A good mattifying powder. All of that wonderful hot weather can make your skin look oily. So, a good powder is important. It can help your skin look gorgeous all day long. The Essence All About Matte powder is great and so is the translucent powder from Wet n' Wild. Find one that you love!
Now that summer is officially here, it's time to get out there and have some fun. With these must-have beauty products at your disposal, you can look great...however you spend your days.
