I absolutely love switching up hair, skin and makeup products with the seasons! It's part of what makes being a girl so much fun, amiright?! To me, summer makeup is all about beachy waves and a the perfect bronzy glow. So today I'm sharing the BEST summer makeup that I'm totally loving right now!
Urban Decay palettes are one of my truest makeup loves and for sure a greatest hit in my best summer makeup lineup. I absolutely LOVE how pigmented all the shadows are. They make the prettiest colors and they last ALL DAY. And the palettes last FOREVER so they're totally worth the investment! All of the earthy, taupe-hued neutrals are completely perfect for summer!
DryBar never, ever disappoints. And I know this isn't really best summer makeup BUT since everybody wants perfect summer beach waves I just had to share my favorite wand of all time that will help you achieve that look, since the last time I shared about it was back in the Winter!
This wand is the total package. It's totally awesome because it's a little skinnier at the top where you want a little extra va-va-volume and wider at the bottom so that your curls fall a little softer and beachy. Which is exactly what we're going for! The wand also has this AMAZING cool touch end so that you're not always burning your fingers! Annnnnd it has an adjustable temperature setting and an auto shut-off. This might be my favorite feature since I'm notorious for accidentally leaving my curling iron plugged in all day. Oops!!
Some of my other FAVORITES that are part of my best summer makeup list are:
Current favorite highlighter – I know this is a more expensive highlighter, but I had to share because it's the BEST highlighter that I have ever ever worn, truly. It's just the right amount of subtle shimmer and it's so super pretty. Read the other reviews to see what other people have said too! I have it in rose gold. My second favorite highlighter is from this Urban Decay palette in the Going Native combo.
Waterproof concealer – this concealer is INTENSE so a little goes a very long way, but it really is such a pretty finish and gives absolutely amazing coverage! I've had it for years but pulled it out of my drawer and rediscovered my love for it (do you ever do that?!) not only because it's so pretty on and you seriously only need a tiny dot for your under eye and for under my nose where I always get redness, but it's WATERPROOF! Hello summertime perfection. I've been wearing medium tan, but when I'm more pale in the winter I wear it in medium.
Perfect primer – this primer is a top seller at Sephora lately and I know exactly why! It fills in creases and lines and makes your foundation go on like butter. I'm always worried about oil free makeup since I have lash extensions so I LOVE that this is an oil free primer. It really does make your skin smooth as silk!
Waterproof eyebrow gel – this is an oldie but a goodie. I especially love using this to fill my brows in the summer when I'm going to go to the beach or jump in a pool with my kiddos, knowing that it will last for hours and hours of fun out in the sun and we can take a pretty sunset picture at the end of a long summer day and my brows will still look the way I want them to look 😉 It's also mega easy to apply. I wear it in taupe and apply with this brush. Also this one little jar will last you forEVer. Like a year easily with daily wear if not longer!
