Summer Beauty Essentials

If you live in Utah, you know how bi polar the weather can be. For the passed month we’ve been experiencing ups and downs of rain, snow, and sun which is frustrating because I’m ready for some sunshine!! However, with summer coming, that means I’m out of school and ready for a vacation! And… I know a lot of you may also be graduating from high school and preparing for your senior trip 🙂 So, I’ve I made a list below of some of my summer beauty essentials that I cannot live without.

Anastasia Glow Kit 

If you’re anything like me, and you like the heavens to see your glow, then you’re going to die when you put this product on your cheek bones. One of my favorite highlighters was from IT Cosmetics but unfortunately it shattered and I couldn’t find it anywhere! So, I went into Sephora with some cash in my hands ready to try a new product. What drew me to this product was that it had four different highlighters to choose from. Hell yes! This product literally melts into the skin and gives such a beautiful shine without looking greasy.

 The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Oil 

If I could bathe in this stuff, trust me, I would. Keeping up with the glowy theme, I love this product because it’s not too overwhelming, but it makes my skin look really healthy and alive. But be warned, wash your hands after applying and don’t wear white clothing!

 Vita Liberata Gradual Self Tanning Lotion

I already mentioned this product in my last blog post, but I literally can’t get enough of this. And what’s best, is that I can control the level of darkness that I want, and it lasts for days. Normal spray tans can range anywhere from $25 to $100 (of course that’s extreme). But who wants to pay that much for a one time tan when you can just do it yourself and get the same amazing results? (Minus that awkward orange color).

Essie nail polish-Hi Maintenance

This color is so summer, and the name totally speaks to me. It’s also so elegant, girly, and it matches with everything. I’m not one to go for bright colors in the summer because of work, I like to keep it pretty toned down. But I’m seriously a sucker for anything pink.

Josie Maran Argan Oil Lip/Cheek Tint

This product is perfect for days that I want to wear light makeup. Plus it’s a two in one which is awesome!! It’s really shear, lightweight, and super easy to pop on the lips or cheek bones. The color is perfect too; it’s really flirty and glossy. The best part though, is that it is made with 100% pure fare trade argan oil. The benefits of argan oil are endless, but to name a few:

  • Moisturizers the skin
  • Can help fight acne
  • Can be used as a toner
  • Has anti aging properties
  • Helps improve elasticity of skin
  • Is high in vitamin E and fatty acids

Banana Boat Dry Oil Argan Oil Sunscreen Tanning Spray

Last but not least, I can’t forget to mention a sunscreen. This is by far the most important product on this list because I want to protect my skin from the UV rays, which we all know can cause cancer. And cancer is a big no-no. Our skin is the largest organ on our bodies which allows for easy absorption of pollutants, chemicals, and the rays from the sun. There’s no reason you can’t protect your skin with some sunscreen but also get a nice tan! That’s why I love this product, especially because it has argan oil infused in it. Also, I use sunscreen because I don’t want my skin to lose its moisture and elasticity.
