Summer Beauty Must Haves

We’re still a few weeks away from the official start of summer, but here in Indiana, temps have been in the upper 80s for the past week. So even if the calendar still says spring, it sure feels more like summer to me.

I’ve rounded up some of my summer beauty must-haves. These are my favorite products at the moment!

Urban Decay Beached Eye Shadow Palette

Beautifully pigmented eye colors that remind you of sand, sun and surf! I picked this up at Ulta recently because I had a 20% off coupon and I’ve been loving the change from more neutral colors to the pops of color in this palette. Urban Decay have the best eye shadow palettes and are worth a splurge every once in a while.

Bare Minerals Statement Matte Liquid Lip Color

I usually don’t wear a bold lip color but I got a free full size sample of the matte liquid lip color in OMG from Bare Minerals and I am LOVING the bright, dark pink color with my skin tone. It screams warmer weather and it’s long lasting.


Not Your Mother’s Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray

This smells so good and works great to give your curls some volume. I purchased this as an alternative to the Not Your Mother’s Sea Salt Spray, which I also love to use to create loose, beachy waves in the summer.

This is a refreshing primer that I probably wouldn’t have picked up on my own. I got a sample with some other products I purchased last summer and it’s a really nice product to use under your BB cream or foundation. It’s not oily and dries fast. It’s not a winter product for me as my skin dries out easily and needs more than this to help moisturize during those months but it’s great for summer when my skin isn’t as dry.


I picked this up last summer too because my face is so shiny by the end of the day that I was looking for something that would help combat it. This pretty much does the trick! A tip for you oily ladies – I spray a couple layers on. One under my foundation and one over. I think that helps extend the product and keeps me from getting so shiny.
