What’s in your summer makeup bag? Summer is all about keeping it light and fresh with a pop of color, so go for makeup products that help you achieve a vibrant yet natural look. From waterproof mascaras and tinted lip balms to lightweight BB creams and creamy blushes, the options are endless.
Haven’t gotten your summer makeup must-haves sorted yet? We’ve rounded up the essentials for you:
To keep your makeup from caking in the summer months, take a break from foundation and use a BB cream instead. BB creams are perfect for this season as they offer lightweight coverage. Some options also offer extra sun protection, making them the ideal base to use throughout summer.
Consider adding BB creams from HOLIKA HOLIKA, PURITO, The Saem or THANK YOU FARMER to your summer makeup bag. These BB creams give your skin just enough coverage, extra protection against the sun, and long-lasting moisture.
You may have used plenty of neutral shades for winter, but it’s time to bring out the colorful eye shadow palettes now that it’s summer. This is your chance to get creative with eye makeup looks.
PONY EFFECT’s Get Ready With Me Shadow Palette features 12 colors that allow you to create versatile makeup looks. If you’re a fan of bright, glittery shades, both the #001 Coachella and #002 UMF have you covered.
Besides checking for product features like “lengthening” or “volumizing” when buying mascara, don’t forget to look for the word “waterproof.” If mascaras are a beauty staple for you all year round, then make sure they’re waterproof for those sweltering hot days. Nobody wants a runny mascara look!
CLIO’s Kill Lash Superproof Mascara stays put all day, even on beach days. Apply two coats and you’ll have long, natural-looking lashes.
Are you team powder blush or cream blush? If you haven’t tried cream blush yet, you’re missing out! Cream blushes like SKINFOOD’s Buttery Cheek Cake or AMUSE’s Soft Cream Cheek blend easily into skin and give a natural and dewy finish.
The best part is that you don’t need to apply it with a makeup brush. Simply apply the cream blush using your fingers or a damp makeup sponge, and you’re good to go!
Lipstick can feel heavy on lips during summer. A perfect alternative is lip tint. Lip tints give your lips a natural flush of color while keeping them moisturized throughout the day.
peripera’s Ink The Velvet is a cult favorite for a reason. Formulated with jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid and marine collagen, the lip tint provides your pout with color and long-lasting moisture. You won’t have to worry about dry or flaky lips on summer days out as long as you have Ink The Velvet in your makeup bag.
