Summer beauty is all about dewy, glowing, effortless skin. Here is Bless Blog’s roundup for summer beauty essentials!
Start with a light-weight tinted moisturizer! We love the Tinted Hydra-Repair Day Cream from Grown Alchemist, with Camellia and Geranium Blossom ($49). The scent is intoxicating, and the formula is super hydrating while maintaining a matte finish.
Our pick for a dewy, sheer-finish Beauty Balm with SPF 45 is the Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 ($39).
Get that summer glow with a dual-ended Shade And Illuminate Glow Stick from Tom Ford ($55) in the shade ‘Sunstruck.’ One end is a sun-kissed bronzer, and the other is a coral blush. The cream formula melts effortlessly into skin for an ethereal bronzed glow!
The lipstick of the summer is the No Lipstick Lipstick SPF 15 by Perricone MD. This anti-aging lip treatment with SPF 15 is designed to mimic the natural rosy flush of healthy lips, while nourishing and conditioning. The solid-to-serum formula allows for sheer, buildable coverage.
Searching for the perfect, scorching-hot coral mani-pedi? Look no further than I’m With The Band by NCLA ($16). This bright coral creme is a showstopper, and all NCLA lacquers are 7-free, 100% vegan, cruelty free, and made in the US of A.
For easy color that blends effortlessly, try the Phyto Pigments Cream Shadow Stick in Haze by Juice Beauty. Haze is a gorgeous shimmering golden beige color that’s subtle enough for day and sexy enough for date night. (We featured this in Cove in April’s Bless Box)!
Finish off the look with a truly waterproof, smudge-proof mascara – Lights, Camera, Splashes™ Waterproof Mascara by Tarte ($23). This waterproof lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning mascara is guaranteed to stay put through rain, sweat, or tears, and won’t give you raccoon-eyes even if your window AC unit fails!
The definitive sunscreen of the summer is the Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 by Supergoop!® ($34) – an innovative mousse formula goes on smooth and absorbs instantly without any sticky sunscreen feel or white cast.
Got too much sun? The After-Sun Repair Creamy Gel by Avene ($29) is a lightweight gel that hydrates, soothes and calms skin after sun exposure.
Wanna get glowing? The Limited Edition Copacabana Bronze and Ipanema Sunset Glow Oils from Rio De Janeiro ($35) gives you a shimmery, delicious, Brazilian-babe glow day or night. Smooth over your shoulders, collar-bones, legs, arms (and anywhere you want a little shimmer).
