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 Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick SPF 15 . 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).
