Summer is here! For me, that means tan lines paired with bronzed and glowy skin. I don’t know about ya’ll, but summer is where my skin looks the best. It’s something about tan lines and a glow that makes me feel incredibly sexy. I’ve curated 10 products that I am obsessed with and recommend for any vina’s summer makeup bag.
A lot of us forget to protect our skin with an SPF before makeup application. My first must-have product is Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer. This moisturizer contains SPF 15, perfect for all skin types. Plus, it’s inexpensive and lightweight.
I’ve officially converted to brow powders. I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on brow products, and I always find myself falling back on NYX Brow Cake Powder. This product provides you with two brow colors and wax to hold your brows in place. A little product goes a long way because it’s incredibly pigmented. For a beautiful natural brow, I use this product with an angle brush and mimic my hair strokes. If you’re feeling fancy, you can use your concealer to clean up your brow for a clean and crisp look.
Maybelline Instant Rewind Eraser Concealer has saved my life, ya’ll; this concealer is perfect for those late nights and early mornings. The concealer provides full coverage, diminishes dark circles and puffiness.
I love luminous, gold bronze, and even rose gold eyes for the summer. For those of you who have not shopped with Colourpop, head over to their site and purchase The Perception Palette. I must admit I am a makeup hoarder, but since I bought this palette, this is all I’ve reached for in every makeup look I’m doing. For a quick summer eye look, I blend culture in my crease and choose my lid color of choice. This eye look is so natural you can do it in your car! I usually add a couple of coats of Maybelline Big Shot Mascara to make my eye pop even more.
BRONZER AND BLUSH:
For a sun-kissed glow, I’m obsessed with Milani Baked Blush. The blush provides you with a naturally radiant flush of color with gold reflects. If you’re not a blush girl but love a glow, hit the high points of your face with Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter for good measure. Anastasia Beverly Hills released a couple of bronzers this past spring that will completely round out your sun-kissed summer look. Spritz and set your face with the Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Setting Spray which will provide 12 hours of flawless dewy skin.
The last two steps are to apply the Sol De Janeiro Sunset Glow Oil, Fenty Glow Bomb to your lips. And voilà—you’re ready for any plans with your vinas!
