Weather can totally dictate your daily beauty regimen. It really does here in coastal NC, with the heat and really bad humidity. It’s been in the upper 90’s with extreme humidity, making it feel like it’s in the 100’s. That makes us super sweaty almost as soon as we walk out the door! Summers here call for extreme measures.
Here are a few of my Summer Must Have items and why:
1. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a quick and easy way to refresh your hair in between regular washes. Dry Shampoo absorbs extra oils and can help keep it more manageable too. It’s great if you have been outside in the heat and humidity and have to run to a last minute meetup or appointment! If your hair frizzes easily in the humidity, this is great stuff! I love the Suave line of Dry Shampoo!
Baked Eyeshadow is great because it offers such rich pigmentation. They apply very smoothly and are easily blendable. Baked eyeshadows are pretty long-lasting and can be worn wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation, offering a variety of gorgeous eye looks! I LOVE the Hard ♥️ Candy Shadow Spheres, especially the nudes n’ roses palette!
Translucent Finishing Powder is awesome! It’s a weightless, sheer powder that provides an invisible way to set and extend makeup wear… yes… even through the heat of Summer. I pick up the Hard ♥️ Candy Fast & Fabulous Oil Control Finishing Powder to absorb oil throughout the day. If you start to perspire, grab a soft makeup brush and re-apply over your makeup!
Blotting Sheets instantly absorb oil, minimize pores and transform shiny skin into gorgeous matte perfection. Keep them on hand on the hot days! If you start to shine, just take a sheet out and blot away! The travel pack fits perfectly into your purse for on-the-go touch-ups. I always have a pack of e.l.f. Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets in my purse! At only 98¢ per pack, they’re easy to keep stocked up on!
Bright, Floral, Lightweight! All great things to look for in a Summer lip color! This year, matte lips are in, and there are some pretty colors to choose from! Pick something that is universal enough to wear with shorts and tank tops, or our favorite Summer dresses! I love the Hard ♥️ Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color. For daytime, Cherry Blossom, for evening, Dahlia. At only $6, you can collect them all!
These are just a few of my favorite items that I keep on hand during Summer… Of course, you’ll need a good mascara, waterproof if you plan to swim with it on… and a foundation that has a good SPF level is a must as well!
