2016 Summer Beauty Must Haves

Y’all know I love my beauty products!  I am always trying new things and on a mission to find the best beauty must haves.  I love sharing my finds with my clients at the salon and YOU!  I’ve really been loving these items the most lately: IMG_9609

  • Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is my life saver during those busy weeks!  Thankfully, I can go a couple days without shampooing my hair!  This stuff definitely gives my hair a fuller, cleaner look on that second day though!  Plus, they have it in two different shades {dark & light}!  No powdery dull finish for us dark tone girls!  If you’re local, it’s also available here.
  • Benefit Mattifying Gel is the bomb dot com.  I shared this brand’s face primer with y’all here, but I’m pretty sure I like this more!  I put it on as my primer and because it’s a gel it instantly dries.  You can’t feel it at all on your face, but it gets rid of your shine, pores and my makeup goes on smoother!  Loving this stuff under my makeup or even when I go without any!
  • Too Faced Blush in the Baby Love shade is all things good!  It’s a deeper pink/coral tone, which is perfect for my fair skin and will also work when I get a little tan!  This blush stays on all day long!  Plus, it’s got great pigment so it goes a long way.  Can’t wait to try it in other shades!
  • Urban Decay Sheer Lipstick is great for spring and summer.  It’s not a heavy lipstick and gives just enough color.  I am using the baby pink shade for now!  Lovin’ it.
  • Tarte Waterproof Bronzer has summer written all over it.  It’s bronzer.  It’s waterproof.  It has just enough shimmer.  It needs to be in your makeup bag.  Period.
  • Benefit Ooh La Lift is an under-eye brightening boost.  It has a pink tone so instantly brightens up the bluish tones under your eyes and gives a pretty summer glow.  It also makes me look awake on those days where I haven’t had enough coffee.  I also use this on the bridge of my nose for a little contouring.
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation is my new favorite foundation!!  This is my biggest struggle in my makeup bag.  It is always so tough finding a foundation that suits your skin type.  I have combination/oily skin and most foundations make my skin feel even oilier.  The “Amazonian Clay” threw me off a little, but I still gave it a try.  I’m so glad I did!  It’s wonderful, ladies.  It goes on liquid, but instantly feels like powder on my skin.  It has a matte finish which is a must for me, especially being so fair skin.  Most foundations end up looking pasty and shiny on me.  If it isn’t enough, this makeup also has non-chemical sunscreen filters {SPF 15}!  Plus, there’s 25 shades to choose from!  Okay, I think I’m done bragging on this one.

Let me know if y’all have any questions on these products!  Hope you enjoy them this summer!

  1. I will have to try these. Can I just give you the money and you pick them up for me? 😉 or maybe, we should just go shopping!

  3. I love when other people share their beauty secrets. I was always a “tom-boy” growing up so all of those beauty tips I never really got. I have some super girly friends though and they help me. haha
