Summer Beauty Must Haves

With the warm weather comes different beauty products that we need to have, while others are just to heavy for summer. Its time to put away all of those liquid and cream products and brake out those summer must haves. Not sure what to have on hand for those hot, humid, summer months? Well here are some of MY must haves (in no particular order).MAC Shroom Eyeshadow. I love this satin finished neautral shade because it is a perfect everday highlight when I'm in no mood for full out eyeshadow, and gives a great glow to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and shoulders.

Hershey's Almond Lip Balm. Purchased at Sephora. If you like the scent of almond, you would LOVE this lipbalm! Its super light and hydrating, and contains SPF15.

Covergirl Classic Color in Rose Silk. My HG blush. Ive had this blush for YEARS and it is STILL my favorite. Rosy pink with a very fine shimmer that gives cheeks amazing glow. I love to use this to brighten up my face when I've had a long day on the water.

LUSH's Imperialis Moisturizer. You can read my review on it here.

MAC Studio Fix Foundation. During the fall and winter, I am attached to my Studio Fix Fluid, but let's be honest, its WAY to heavy for summer. I LOVE this pressed powder foundation because it gives medium-full coverage (depending on the brush you use), yet still feels light as air on the skin.

Loreal Voluminous Mascara. Again, another HG product of mine. Like I said before, there are times during the summer where I can't even think of doing full eye makeup, so after my wash of highlight of Shroom eyeshadow, I love to finish off my eyes with a nice coat of this mascara. It gives me that false lash look and doesnt flake.

Bobbi Brown Powder Brush. I was lemming over this brush for months at my CCO. And I am so glad I bought it. This brush applies blush beautifully, and I love to use to apply my bronzer as well. It also works when I want to do a quick contour.

MAC Fix+ . MAC describes it as a refreshing mist or finishing spray. I love to use this with my Studio Fix. After I tap my brush on top of my powder foundation, I spritz this from a distance onto my brush, and it gets rid of that "powdery" look. I also like to use this as a finishing spray or to just mist myself on a hot, humid, summer day.

MAC 185 brush. This brush is so dense yet soft. Because of how dense it is, it gives me full coverage, yet buffs it out so quickly. I don't know what I did before this brush!

What are some of YOUR summer must haves? Tell me in the comments! (You'll be glad you did ;] )

Til next time

The Labello Sun lip balm XD, and sunscreen (30+ SPF) :). And an eyelash curler ;D. I always use that though, not only in the summer.
