Summer Beauty Must Haves

Summer Beauty Must Haves

Summer Beauty Must Haves by chicinsneakers featuring lips makeup

While I'm in California right now, which seems like a land of perpetual spring and summer to an outsider like me, it is finally starting to warm up in the Midwest. Summer is the time travel, make room for adventure, and minimize time wasted on a beauty routine. Personally, I am a huge fan of dry shampoos, surf sprays, and leave-in conditioners that remove oil, add beachy texture, and moisturize, respectively. These products can slash time spent styling hair in the summer, when honestly, who wants to blow dry and flat iron their hair when its 90+ degrees out? (Not I...)

Cream blushes are another great product for a quick and easy touch of color in the morning or after a dip in the pool. As far as bronzers go, I believe a light touch of color is great to contour and achieve that summer "glow", without the UV rays. Bronzer looks most natural when there is no glitter, and Too Faced makes a great matte bronzer, called Chocolate Soleil, in several colors for various skin tones. I also included a favorite nude-pink lipstick of mine (Angel by MAC) and some frosted blue shadow in the set above by Benefit as some new makeup items to try. I would recommend doing one or the other, as combining them will trigger flashbacks of the late 90s early 2000s. For a more modern take, pair frosted blue shadow with a fresh, dewy face and a natural lip. The nude lipstick can be taken up a notch because it is close to a natural lip color with a dark neutral smoky eye. 

See links below for shopping. Hope you gym bunnies are having a great weekend.
