+ Favorite Summer Beauty Products | 2015 +

Since it gets up to 100+ degrees out here in California, I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer time beauty products with you today! When I wear make up in the summer, I usually go for something that looks natural that won’t slide off of my face. Lately, I’ve been absolutely loving that dewy skin glow look for this year. So, here are my favorite products!


For a base, I am obsessing over Ulta’s BB Cream Beauty Balm in the Illuminating shade because it gives your skin such a healthy looking glow! Sometimes, I just put it on by itself with moisturizer and it looks stunning. Next, let’s talk about Lush. Lush has these light weight skin supplements out that are in a liquid form that come in cute little jars. You can put it straight onto your skin, which is what I like to do, or even mix it in with your moisturizer to give you a little color. They don’t feel heavy on the skin and give a healthy tint to your face. Talk about great for summer! I also have been loving their skin tint in the shade Charisma, which is basically a liquid bronzer that you can also mix it in with moisturizer as well! I am on the pale side, so I love this for the summer time to bronze up a little! To apply these, I usually just put a little bit on my face with my ring finger and then blend it out with a small stippling brush. I adore Lush and I am so happy I found these! They are definitely my summer staple this year! After my Lush products, I put on my Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Powder in Translucent Pearl with a fan brush to top off my highlight. I brush it on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, under my brows, on my cupids bow above my lips, and on my chin to give my skin the ultimate glow. Next, I hit my Mario Badescu Facial Spray all over my face. What’s cool about this refreshing mist is that you can apply it before and after make up and also throughout the day! It’s made with aloe, herbs, and rosewater and smells very rosy- I’m in love! In this California heat, I need that extra rejuvenation in the morning, if ya know what I mean! A new friend of mine had told me that she keeps hers in the fridge so it feels extra cold when she sprays it on her face. I had to try it…and let me tell you, it rocks! To finish off my summer make up, I usually just add some winged liner, mascara, a nude eyeliner in my water line, and a clear brow gel on my brows.

I highly recommend trying out an illuminating primer or BB cream this year if you haven’t already and those skin tints from Lush as well! I cannot live without these products in the summer time! What are your go to products during the hotter months of the year? Have you tried anything new?

Thank you so much for reading today’s post!
