As we have reached to that period of time where sun is in full mood to show up. It is also the time of school holidays. Many families are already on their vacations or some are planning to go. Me and family are out of town and spending time in Philadelphia where temperature lies in 80°F to 90°F mostly sunny during day time. In summer I have to be more careful what I apply on my face and hair so they don’t look messy after some duration of time.
In todays post I am going to share some of my Summer Beauty Essentials I find best this year.
Obviously sunscreen would be my first choice to protect my skin in this scorching heat. I believe that sunscreens work differently on different skin types. Some get greasy on skin, some leave white patches and some are thick enough to feel weird on skin. So sunscreen could totally be your personal choice which works best for you.
Below are some of my sunscreen favorites:
♦ I usually use Tinted Moisturizer for my daily makeup routine in summer days. I feel it light weight with medium coverage so don’t have any fear that it will flake or melt after I sweat. Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer is the best tinted moisturizer released this year by Chanel. (Review and Swatch Here)
♦ If I really have to wear Foundation I’ll go with never fails Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
♦ Concealer I would add my all time favorite Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch to the list. I also love Clé de Peau Beauté Women’s Radiant Stick Foundation to use as a concealer, It airbrush away what foundation doesn’t cover.
♦ No face complete without Glow even it is summer though. If I just wanna highlight my higher points on face or go full tan I’ll definitely grab Soleil Tan De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid from my makeup stash (Full review Here). I have also been using Giorgio Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer in shade 6 this summer for that extra glow.
In summer on my lips I would probably go for nudes or lip balms in day time. But at night I would definitely wear some bold colours.
Picture above some summer favorite lip colours
♦ Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria.
♦ Tom Ford – Lip Color Matte in 04-Pussycat
♦ Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner in shade Surprise Me
For me eyes are the main focus on any face, In summer I usually don’t apply too much makeup on my eyes but would definitely enhance them by applying some of my summer favorites this year.
(You can check my post where I swatched Best Black and Colored Mascaras if you can find any of your favorite)
♦ Giorgio Armani Tokoyo Gardens Eye Tint in 34-Copper Reflection
♦ Dior Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof in 254-Bleu Captivant
Summer is all about bright colours, It was harder for me to pick few color for nails as my summer picks. All makeup brands released such a nice and bright nail colors this year. I chose three colours for nails which in my opinion are wearable all year Long.
♦ Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 08-Pirate
♦ Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 167-Ballerina
(You can also check more nail colours I swatched in my post Here)
I always enjoy mists but in summer Mists for both hair and face become most important essential for me. Dior Airflash Radiance Mist (Review Here) not only refresh my mood but also work as a setting spray so I don’t have to get worried about my makeup even if I am out in sun.
Other than all mentioned above there are few more I would love to add in my summer beauty essentials list.
♦ A Slouchy Hat not only in trend but also protect my skin, scalp, and hair from sun damage.
♦ Sunglasses whether i wear plastic one or wire-rim aviators, sunglasses are must whenever I am out in sun.
♦ For handbad I’ll go with Straw Cross body in trend this summer.
♦ Leather Thongs to add style and comfort at the same time
♦ Jewelry Which would typically include big size hoops and oversize bangles.
