–Bronzer– Bronzer is the classic makeup essential to give you that kissed-by-the-sun glow. Find one that suits your skin tone and has a slight shimmer to brighten up your complexion and give you a lit-from-within appearance.
–SPF Foundation- Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation is my current favorite summer foundation. With SPF 18 and a matte finish it is perfect for hotter weather. Not to mention its blends flawlessly into skin. But, if you have any dry patches I’d recommend L’Oreal True Match Foundation instead since it doesn’t cling to dryness as much.
–Bright Lip– Summer is the perfect time to play with bright lips. Everyone knows I am a huge fan of the Revlon Lip Butters and my new go-to shade is Sorbet. It gives a fun pop of hot pink and brightens everything up with some color.
–Setting Spray– NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray is my favorite product for summer. I wrote a rave review of it here. Essentially, it helps the pigments in your makeup last all day and prevents everything from melting away in the heat.
–Blotting Papers– These are in my handbag at all times. Instead of having to constantly cake on powder throughout the day to combat shine, these little blotting papers absorb oil and restore a matte finish to the face. There isn’t one particular brand I prefer and you can find them at any drug store; I picked mine up at Ulta.
