Summer Makeup Must Haves – 2018

June 22, 2018

Although we love the idea of going all natural this summer, sometimes it’s hard to resists throwing a little bit of makeup on, even before heading out for a day at the beach. While the most important part of your summer makeup routine has to be your sunscreen, there are a few other great waterproof and water resistant products out there that thrive in the hot summer sun ☀

  • Back to Basics….Sunscreen is ALWAYS step 1. Of course, every skin type is unique, so here are a few different options for a variety of skin types:

Coola ($36)

  • If you are looking for more coverage or a dewy glow, the best way to achieve this is by wearing a face product with SPF built in.

It Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50 ($38)
