It’s good to be back after my break last week…and it’s now June! Summer is right around the corner (at least for us here in the Northern Hemisphere), so it’s time to discuss what I consider to be summer beauty must-haves. It’s going to get hot (hopefully!), humid, and the days long so often we need to switch up our makeup and beauty routines to fit these new conditions.
Summer is usually a time for lighter makeup, or less makeup altogether. Lighter moisturizers, tinted moisturizers, less lengthy routines and lots of SPF. But of course this all depends on what you want to achieve with your look, what your skin type is and what your environment is like.
Now that we’ve put aside the deep, dark burgundies, cranberries and smokey tones that brought us through fall and winter, it’s time to bring out the oranges, pinks, golds, and other brights to make our eyes, face and lips really stand out. It’s time to play and experiment with color! For some inspiration, check out this article on Refinery 29 all about how to wear green this season.

So it’s all about summer throughout the month of June! I’ll be sharing with you everything from my recommendations for light, sweat-proof products, tips on how to wear bright pops of color, and what my favorite SPF to bring to the beach is. I’d love for you guys to share your summer beauty must-haves with me along the way as well.
Stay tuned for a new summer-centric post every Monday featuring some of my favorite products for the season!

What are some of your must-have, go-to summer beauty products? I’d love to know!
Summer must have is a liquid or cream blush! 😊
Oh, I’m totally with you on that! Most of the time I use creams on my cheeks since my skin is so dry. What are some of your favorites?
Sunscreen is an absolute must! I’m looking forward to reading your Summery posts!
Thanks babe! ❤️
Summer is my fave. Love playing with color and I’ll have to try blues and greens lol
I personally love greens on me since I have red hair, but I’ve always been afraid of blues! I feel like it can go really wrong really quickly if you don’t use the right tones, etc. And blues are sooo in right now, like greens & yellows. All these blue palettes popping up.
Oh gosh yeah, blues have always been that color that can either look really flattering or oh so wrong! XD
I know right? I’m so impressed with the color trends right now, lots of them are super gorgeous, they make me want to try everything!
Me too, especially all the warmer shades like orange, pink & yellow! But of course within reason 😉😆
Love your choices for summer makeup, especially that gorgeous eyeshadow palette.
Thanks so much! ❤️
I look forward to these posts! I definitely need to find something sweat proof that won’t break me out in the summer.
Stay tuned for this Monday then 😉. I have a great list of long-wear products for you!
