Wearing makeup in the summer is pretty pointless if it just melts right off. Lucky for you I've tried enough products that I have a good idea of what works when it's a million degrees outside.
|Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer|
Some people think tinted moisturizer is pointless, but it really depends what you want. Tinted moisturizer gives you a light, sheer coverage, stays put, and has SPF - so I basically love it this time of year. Laura Mercier is my favorite. It may seem pricey but considering the size and how much you need, it's a good value and will last a long time.
|Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge|
Like I've mentioned, cream blush is my go-to during the summer. I did a how-to post on applying it if you have any questions. Easy to apply (once you know how) and looks gorgeous, especially this time of year.
A lot of people would recommend waterproof mascara during the summer and that would definitely work, but I hate it. (Removing it is a pain.) Wear your normal mascara and just skip the bottom lashes. No smudging and you don't have to buy a new mascara.
|Fresh Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment|
A Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment + nude tinted + SPF = my new favorite. (I put the EOS lip balm with SPF in my beach bag though. It's $3 and this is... more than $3 so if I'm going to lose one to the sun, it's going to be EOS and not Fresh.)
|Boscia Blotting Linens|
Blotting papers are perfect for the middle of the day when you start to notice a little shininess. Any brand will do (since they're all virtually the same), but Boscia ones have $100 sheets in a pack and Sephora sometimes sells them for $5. Hard to beat.
So there you go, a few tips, tricks and products for the summer. What are your summer makeup must haves?
