Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer is here and I’ve rounded up my favorite beauty and hair products to keep you feeling glam through the next couple of months! For me, summer is about lightweight makeup products and humidity control hair products. I have thick wavy hair so I have been on the hunt to find the perfect products to keep my hair healthy, shiny, and frizz free!


Long wearing foundation. My favorite everyday foundation for summer is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation. I love how natural this foundation looks on my skin and it lasts all day! I’d say the coverage is more sheer-medium. For full coverage days, I recommend using Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation. It has a natural matte finish and also lasts the entire day with minor touchups.

Makeup brushes. I love using the bareMinerals Precision Face Brush for foundation and cream products. For powder products, my current favorite is Real Techniques Blush Brush.

Primer. Right now I am obsessed with Too Faced Hangover Primer. It is lightweight and smells like coconut! I find that my makeup doesn’t budge when I use this primer.

Pink lip colors. Bobbi Brown Lip Color is my go to for lipsticks. My two favorite shades for summer are Natural Pink and Pink.

Voluminous mascara. I have so many mascaras that I use on a weekly basis but the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara is my current favorite for long and volumized lashes.

Brow pencil. I only recently got into shaping my brows and ever since the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Brown Pencil has been a staple in my makeup bag. I love brow pencils because it’s a simple way to enhance your brows and polish your overall beauty look.

Beautiful blushes. I’m a sucker for pretty blushes! Right now I’m loving the Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder in the shade Maui and Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in the shade Powder Pink. Both of these blushes are simply to apply and add a nice pop to the cheeks.

Bronzer. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a sun kissed look! Bronzer is one of my favorite products to tie a whole look together. I recommend using Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in the shade Medium.

Perfume. My go-to perfume for summer is Miss Dior Eau de Parfum.


Hair oil. I love using oils in my hair to keep it healthy and shiny. My current favorite hair oil for summer is Living proof Nourishing Oil. It smells amazing and is lightweight!

Mask treatment. Masks are great for moisturizing your hair, especially after a couple of days by the pool or beach. I recommend trying Living proof Restore Mask Treatment. It is a great product for thick hair!

Shampoo + conditioner. I rotate my shampoo and conditioners out frequently to keep my hair healthy, but right now I am loving the Living proof Restore collection. It’s great for damaged and dry hair, especially during the summer months.

Curl cream. I love to use curl products that enhance shiny and keep my curls bouncy. Living proof Curl Defining Styling Cream is the perfect product for soft curls with hold.

Leave-in conditioners. If you want to keep your hair soft and tangle free, I recommend trying out a leave-in conditioner. My favorites are the Living Proof Curl Leave-In Conditioner and Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray.

Finishing spray. The best way to prep your hair for humidity is to spritz a little bit of Living proof No Frizz Humidity Shield all over your hair and then you’re all set!

Dry shampoo. I love to use Living proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo to keep my blowout fresh and for days after the gym.
