Summer is here! And if you are like me, that means that it is time to update your beauty routine. Summer is the season that sees the biggest shift in my beauty routine. In the summer, I like to glow! Summer beauty is all about lightweight products and a dewy finish. Heavy foundation and matte powders have no place in my summer beauty routine. And SPF, lots of that, SPF is included in my daily year-round skincare routine but, it’s even more of a non-negotiable in the summer.
These are my 16 must-have beauty products for the dog days of summer. Along with jean cut-offs and cute sandals, consider these products to be your summer beauty must haves.
Summer Beauty Must Haves
Tarte Serum Foundation: In summer, I like to keep my foundation light but still cover my imperfections. This serum-infused foundation does exactly that while hydrating your skin.
L‘Oreal Glotion: I mean who doesn’t love to glow in the summer? This drugstore beauty find is a must in every summer makeup kit. It adds the perfect amount of highlight and is under $10!
Fenty Cream Blush: If you want a beautiful, natural blush that doesn’t cake in the heat, switch to cream blush and thank me later. I love the shade Crush on Cupid.
Benefit Gimme Brow: My eyebrows are invisible so, a tinted eyebrow product is a must for me every day. This product contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin & the brush grabs every hair to give the illusion of gorgeous full eyebrows.
Tarte Creamy Bronzer: This buildable bronzer is so easy to apply and gives you the perfect I just returned from a week-long beach vacation glow.
Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow: This is the quickest & easiest eyeshadow I have ever used. It quickly transforms from liquid to powder and, it’s waterproof so, it stays all day long.
IT Cosmetics Setting Spray: Keep your summer makeup from sliding off your face with this setting spray and it’s packed full of heat-friendly ingredients like coconut water and aloe vera.
Tubing Mascara: Do you want your mascara to last all day and, traditional waterproof mascara is not doing the trick? Try tubing mascara instead of coating your lashes with pigment tubing mascaras wrap each lash in polymers. Not only does that mean your mascara will last all day, but it also means longer, thicker lashes.

Skincare & Other
Cerave Tinted Sunscreen: If you are on the hunt for an amazing drugstore skincare line, the answer is Cerave. I love this tinted sunscreen because it’s super lightweight and is unscented, which is a must for my sensitive skin.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen: If you want to glow like J Lo and protect your skin from the sun, this is the product you need. Rumor has it, J Lo’s makeup artist uses this spray sunscreen to give J Lo that perfect glow she is constantly seen with.
Supergoop SPF 40 Lipscreen: A clear lipgloss that also adds SPF protection to your lips, sign me up!
Bump Eraser Body Scrub: Adding a good body exfoliant to your beauty routine is a must in summer. Great to use to scrub off all that sunscreen after a day by the pool or prep your skin before you apply self-tanner.
Tanologist Face & Body Drops: I’m very much an impatient novice when it comes to self-tanning so, products that take you from light to dark overnight are not for me. That’s where tanologist tanning drops come into play. I like to take the drops one shade darker than my natural skin tone, add them to my daily moisturizer for a few days in a row and watch the magic happen.
Ultra Repair Cream: Did you spend all day in the sun? This lotion is like a glass of water for your skin.
Phat Glow Facial Mask: If you want gorgeous glowy skin, you need to start with good skincare. This face mask reduces the look of pores, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles, revealing perfect pre-makeup, luminous skin.
Matte Texturizing Spray: Do you want those perfect beachy waves but don’t live anywhere near the ocean? Add a few spritzes of this to your hair and, you will look like an actual mermaid.
