Top 7 Beauty Essentials for Summer

Are you dying to know which beauty products are hot this summer? Here are the top seven products from my makeup wishlist that will leave you feeling fabulous.

1. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Zero Tanlines All Over Body Bronzer

I tested this product at Sephora, and completely fell in love! Not only does it smell amazing, but it also really does what it says it does. Make sure to use this “allover gel body bronzer with a custom sponge applicator for a hands-free, mess-free, matte-bronze finish.” It’s transfer resistant and streak free, so don’t worry about it getting all over your clothes!

3. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Collection: Water Foundation

In summer, it’s crucial to keep your skin hydrated. Luckily, I’ve discovered the perfect foundation just for that! “This concentrated, full-coverage fluid formula features 20 percent water to quench dry skin as it covers and masks any redness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone while softening the look of pores and fine lines.”

3. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Collection: Eyeshadow Palette

These creamy glitter shadows will provide the perfect wash of color to put all over your lid. If you want simple, stress free makeup that still looks great for going out, this palette is the way to go. I love every single one of the eight shades, which range from a shimmery bronze to a gorgeous cream highlight color.

 

4. Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

Good luck getting your hands on this palette! Ever since its release, it’s been elusively out of stock, which is no surprise. Its colors are gorgeous and really suits all skin tones! “Be sweet as a peach with these fresh-picked shades infused with the juicy scent and antioxidant-rich essence of peach. Create endless looks with 18 shades of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes and pops of purples that will have you looking summer-fresh year-round.”

5. Lancome Juicy Shakers  

This is an addictive lip oil with a super-soft cushion applicator that glistens with a “wash of color with a hint of shine. Juicy Shaker’s bi-phase technology delivers the first pigmented lip oil with two distinct phases. The first phase features a transparent oil for a comfortable, non-sticky shine.” This product is formulated with a blend of five nourishing oils, including peach kernel oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil, cranberry oil and muscat rose oil - it treats your lips like a soothing lip balm would. Plus, they smell delectable enough to eat!

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit  

EVERYONE is dying over these glow kits from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It comes in two colors - a more icy/cool toned one called Gleam and a more rosy/warm toned one called That Glow. My personal favorite, along with everyone else’s it looks like, is That Glow - it’s sold out everywhere right now, but you can probably find it in your local Sephora if you’re lucky. These gorgeous highlights create a subtle yet glowing highlight for your cheekbones, nose, brow bone, cupid’s bow - wherever you want to shine.

7. Milani Amore Matallics Lip Créme

We all saw Kylie Jenner’s Metallic Matte liquid lipsticks, and we all know how tough it is to get your hands on one, let alone all three. Luckily, Milani came out with perfect dupes, and they last up to 12 hours! “Bold and richly pigmented, these metallic liquid lip colors shine with a soft luster and dry to a smooth matte finish—without drying out your lips.” I love the colors “Matterialistic” and “Chromattic Addict,” which are so similar to Kylie’s King K and Heir.
