Top 5 Summer Beauty Products
Original Beauty Blender (Royal) $19, available at Sephora (also comes in the original pink)
A beauty blender is a reusable cosmetic sponge. It works best when wet, allowing for a hydrated make-up application. I love using Urban Decay's Naked Skin weightless ultra definition liquid make up with it as it leaves a dewy, glow like finish.
NYC Sun 'n' Bronze in 706 'Hampton's Radiance' $3.99 at drugstores (also available in 3 darker tones)
This bronzer is amazing for that craved J.Lo -esque glowing skin. You can swirl the colors all together and use the lighter color as a quick and easy highlighter. It has a subtle shimmer that is perfect for any afternoon without looking too overbearing. The product is not too powdery, and it has not given my skin any problems. (I have sensitive skin!)
This foundation is what many would call an oldie but goodie. It is a "weightless and virtually invisible liquid foundation that creates a luminous, demi-matte finish". The perfect foundation for summer, as it is very lightweight, leaving an almost no make-up feel on your skin.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream $5, available at Target, Nordstrom Rack and Ulta
NYX has a variety of colors available for their butter glosses. Peaches and Cream stands out for Summer days and nights, as it will serve as the pop of color. As Melissa Flores has said before, a pop of color on the lips adds value to any beauty look. This peachy-pink gloss is great summer color to finish off any look, for almost any occasion. It is a great color to transition from a long day at work to happy hour outings. NYX butter glosses feel like butter on your lips (hence the name), providing. Great moisture to your lips. It also has great color pay off!
Benefit's Rockateur cheek powder $28, available at Sephora, Ulta Beauty, and Benefitcosmetics.com 'Famously provocative cheek powder'
This blush is perfect to complete any flawless, glowing makeup application. It has a satin like finish that makes you look like you have a glowing blush. With a rose gold pigment this is definitely a summer must have blush.
