This is a bit of a random collection, but absolute necessities for this summer. Scroll to see what I can’t (or would never want to) live without.
A good friend of mine recommended this tan to me after I had complimented her bronzed skin during quarantine, we have similar complexions so I decided to give it a try. This formula is the PERFECT color on my cool skin tone, never orange, and just dark enough that it truly gives you that post vacation glow. This foam is also very hydrating, fades evenly and lasts for a solid 4 days. 10/10
2. Ulta Beauty Hydrating Face Primer
Now I know what you are thinking, “is this girl recommending a non mattifying primer in July?” Well yes, I am. As someone with acne prone, combination skin I tend to struggle with finding a good overall primer. My main goals are to keep oil under control but still look glowy, smooth out my pores and to keep that makeup in place. This primer does all of that and more, and is an EXCELLENT price point. Super impressed with this product, feels like velvet on the skin, does not break me out and lasts all day.
3. NYX Total Control Drop Foundation in Classic Tan
The idea of buying 5 different shades of foundation to match my ever changing summer skin tone just never made sense to me, and this NYX liquid foundation has solved that problem. I can add drops of this to ANY foundation of my choosing and get an exact color match to my tan without any noticeable change in formula. And it’s under $10 and lasts FOREVER, just get it and thank me later.
4. Baby Bum Mineral 50 Sunscreen Spray
If you don’t already know, wearing sunscreen on your face daily is truly the key to perfect skin. Admittedly, finding a sunscreen that didn’t break me out, make my makeup slide everywhere or leave me oily seemed impossible. I bought this out of desperation on vacation and never looked back. I apply this on top of moisturizer every day, under my makeup or alone, and absolutely love it. The light scent reminds me of vacation and it contains only 2 ingredients.
5. Hempz Sensitive Skin Herbal Body Moisturizer
This artificial fragrance + dye free body lotion smells delicious, hydrates my skin and and soothes my eczema prone skin. Made with oatmeal and hemp seed oil, this is only the good stuff for your skin and doesn’t leave a film on hot summer days. I especially love that it can be applied over fake tan and doesn’t cause it to fade prematurely.
