My Summer Beauty Favourites

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Summer is the perfect time to ease up on the makeup and try out some new products. Whenever it gets super hot, makeup tends to just melt off of my face and my hair becomes a frizzy mess. I definitely cut back on what I apply, but also experiment with some new stuff to see what helps with the melting and frizzing. Currently I have a handful of can't-live-without products..

Super City Block // I LOVE this stuff. It's basically a shield for your face minus the grease and smell that comes with a standard sunscreen. Highly recommend. 

They're Real Mascara  // I've been wearing this mascara since it's release and I can't imagine life without it. One quick swipe of the want and your lashes look super long and full! I also like that it doesn't clump because those spider leg lashes are not a good look. 

Baby Lips // This is a great drugstore find. Very affordable and keeps your lips soft. Also has SPF which is an added bonus - especially in the summer. 

Essie Watermelon // I love this polish! It's a lot brighter than it photographs but still pretty. 

Euphoria Rollerball Set // I've blogged about perfumes before - but I just wanted to add this set in because I love it so much. Definitely my signature scent and the rollerball is perfect to keep in your purse for touch ups! 

They're Real Push Up Liner // This liner by Benefit is pretty new, but it's awesome! I got a sample at Sephora and I definitely will be buying the full size product. It's a gel liner that comes out of a precision tip. Super easy to apply and it's waterproof! 

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Conditioner //  I go through a lot of this stuff in the summer time. This conditioner keeps my curly hair hydrated which cuts back on frizz. It also smells great and doesn't weigh your hair down! 

Lush Grease Lightning // This is my favourite Lush product. It's a tea tree cleansing gel that you don't have to wash off. It gets rid of grease really quickly, smells great, and makes your skin feel really refreshed. I highly recommend this product - especially for summer.

Clinique Neutral Palette // If I'm going to wear a little extra makeup, it will be from this palette. For some reason I tend to stick to neutral shades that have a little bit of shimmer! These eyeshadows last throughout the day and are easy to apply! A great palette for beginners!
