With every new season comes new makeup! Summer is a big time for makeup trends such as bright color blushes, bronzy cheeks, strobing, and metallic lipsticks. I am definitely someone who changes their look day-to-day but I use most of these products daily during the summer! Today I am sharing 5 of my must have products for the season and hopefully you can find something for your summer!
CC creams have become one of my new obsessions lately, they have so many great benefits for your skin! IT Cosmetics has made their CC cream to be an all-in-one, multi-tasking product to provide full coverage and sun protection with SPF 50+ to protect your skin from harmful sun rays. I’ve been using this product off and on for about a year now and have fallen in love with it! It keeps my skin hydrated and provides the perfect amount of coverage to hide any imperfections. I apply it with a beauty blender for an airbrushed completion!
HOOLA Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics is one of the few bronzers I am able to use with my skin tone. Most bronzers contain orangey tones that don’t work for more of a fair complexion (like mine), but HOOLA is more of a brown toned bronzer. It is super blend-able and gives a soft, bronzy glow to the skin! Perfect for contouring and sculpting as well!
Strobing became such a big trend earlier this year but I never really hopped on the bandwagon, little did I know it was soon to become one of my favorite things! I love contouring which goes hand-in-hand with strobing so it was a match made in heaven! This strobe cream by MAC provides a soft, neutral glow. It can be used alone or you can place a powder highlighter over top (my favorite thing to do). The formula is a super light, blend-able cream that is used by placing it on the hight points of your face.
This blush palette by Urban Decay in the color “Streak” has been my go-to travel palette for the past 3 months! This blush gives your cheeks more of a brighter look and makes your overall face appear more glowy. It is so great for traveling because it comes with a bronzer, highlighter, and blush and it’s super small and compact!
KYLIE Cosmetics hasn’t been around for long but they definitely know what they are doing! This metallic lipstick in the color “Heir” is the perfect addition to any summer makeup look! I have a few of the KYLIE lip kits, glosses, and metallics so I am quite familiar with the brand. The metallic formula isn’t too drying, stays on all day, and with the added shine, makes the lips appear fuller. Plus, who doesn’t love a good coral for summer!
