Yay for the official start of summer; I am so excited its finally here ! Come summer I love incorporating a few extra products to my beauty regimen while also stocking up on my faves. Here are some of my go-to summer beauty products :
1 ) Kopari Rose Toner : This is one of my absolute must haves all year around but I use it a lot more especially in the summer! Its so versatile and can be used as a toner, setting spray or face mist to refresh your face and cool off on a hot summer day. Oh and the Kopari lip glossy is my no 1 lip balm for life!
2 ) SPF is your best friend to keep you protected while you are having fun in the sun. My go to sunscreen brand is Supergoop – I love using the everyday sunscreen by Supergoop.
3) Self Tanners : Since I love going to the beach during the summer I love using a self tanner at home. I recently tried the St Tropez Bronzing Water Mousse and Bronzing face mist and absolutely love it. the products are super lightweight and smell amazing. If you prefer an everyday gradual self tan moisturizer, I highly recommend Nkd Skn Gradual Glow Daily Self Tan moisturizer; it is so hydrating and gives you the perfect subtle summery glow.
4) I love trying out new products every season and one of my fave new beauty product releases this summer is the Urban Decay Born to Run eyeshadow palette is ah-ma-zing! It is made for the girl on the run as it has 27 different colors in mattes and shimmery shades from neutrals, to warm to cool tones. Perfect to create multiple looks and an ideal palette to pack for all your summer travels! I created a neutral everyday look in photo below for item no 5 with this palette. The new collection also has 3 new lip shades that are so pretty for summer.
5 ) Cheek and Lip tints : I love adding a cheek and lip tint in my daily summer beauty regimen for that sunkissed flushed look. Fresh beauty’s Sugar lip treatment are always in my bag , they add a sheer tint of color and are also SPF 15. I recently picked them up in a few summery shades too – poppy and punch. As for cheek tints I love RMS beauty’s lip 2 cheek and have also heard great things about Tata harper.
6 ) While I do love a natural lip color for the most part, Summer is the one time I also love love sporting a bold lip. Love finishing off with a touch of gloss so that my lips dont get too dry in the heat; I love the Urban Decay Hi Fi lip gloss. Its so cushiony-soft and provides long-lasting wear thats also comfortable.
7) Beach hair dont care : My go to hair for 365/24/7! I recently updated my hair tools and got the Singlepass wave and singlepass luxe (straigtener) from t3 micro. They are both excellent tools and so so worth it. Easy to use and high quality ; but also produce beautiful results! The wave wand is perfect for beachy waves while the straightening iron is versatile enough to use for achieving both silky straight hair and hair with natural curls. My go to beach hair products are the Ouai wave spray and IGK hair beach club texturizing spray.
8 ) Mask and exfoliate : As for fave bodycare products, I use a face mask 2-3 times a week. My fave one for summer that is lightweight and leaves you with Dewy skin is Fresh Black Tea instant brightening mask. I also use their Peony overnight mask a few times a week, and absolutely love it! Its very hydrating and locks in the moisture overnight, leaving you with ultra soft skin. My favorite body exfoliators are the Brown Sugar Polish by fresh and the Coconut Scrub by Kopari.
9 ) Sunkissed moisturized skin : I love the combo of the Kopari body milk + body oil for an everyday moisturizer. They are both lightweight and super moisturizing. On beach days (or weekend outings too!) I never leave home without slathering my body with Coconut body glow for that sunkissed beached look.
10 ) Smells like its summah-time : My fave summertime fragrances is Bvlgari’s Omnia Pink Sapphire (for a floral scent) and Giorgio Armani’s Aqua Do Gio (for a fresh scent).
Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
