Summertime Glam

If you're like me, you cannot wait for the warm summer weather to get here! In order to enjoy the sunshine comfortably, you'll need to grab some beauty items that are perfect for on the go and for everyday summer glam. Here are a few items currently on my favorite's list!

So, first things first.. let's talk about the "must have" items in your makeup bag this summer. 

Tinted Me:

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer, has been my go to this summer. I opted to put my foundations to the side and have been sticking with a tinted moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated and protected in this hot desert. (Thanks, Vegas)
Anywho, I love this tinted moisturizer especially since it's very lightweight and has SPF. I tend to have combination/oily skin throughout the year but in the summer month's my skin craves moisture. I can put this on early in the morning and wear it all day without blotting even once. Plus, I don't even need to wear a primer underneath this product. Overall, I give it 4 out of 5 stars! ;)

                                                              Love those lips:

It's no secret that I'm in love with everything EOS. Their lip balms have been my favorite all year long. They're extra moisturizing and full of natural oils and vitamin E. Just perfect to quench your lips during the warm summer months.

**PRO TIP** Try popping this bad boy in the freezer for a couple hours. Apply right before you walk out the door for a cool sensation.

                                                       Too Faced Melted Lipsticks:

Another hit this summer has been my Too Faced Melted lipstick. If you're looking for a high pigmented, long lasting and ultra glossy lip product, this will be your holy grail for the summer. 

Each color is very pigmented. Best of all, I can apply these without feeling like I have a thick icky gloss all over my lips. My current favorite color is "Melted Fuschia."

                                                              Hydrate your skin:

For an extra pick me up and to give my skin an extra dewy look, I love Youngblood's Minerals in the Mist. This lil baby is full of vitamins and not to mention it smells pretty great too. My favorite right now is Recharge. 

Bronze me:

This Too Faced Bonjour Soleil set is perfect for all beauties that would love an extra glow. Fully pigmented and made with Cocoa so it smells amazing!

**PRO TIP** For my gorgeous dark skinned beauties, do not sleep on a good bronzer. An added highlight on top of your foundation or tinted moisturizer is just gorgeous on dark skin. Sweep on top of your cheekbones and across nose. Not convinced? Check out the beauty below:

Waterproof me!

There's nothing worse than a mascara on a hot summer day that runs and makes you look like a raccoon.

So save yourself some time and grab a waterproof mascara. Trust me, it's worth the investment. My go to this summer has been Bobbi Brown's Smudge proof mascara which has definitely held up to the hype. 

Get Nailed!

Complete your summer look with a pop of color on your nails. Currently, I'm obsessed with Zoya polish. It's long lasting and has a wide range of color options. 

**Pro Tips** To give your nails a super drying boost, dip them in ice cold water after you've applied your last top coat.
