My Makeup Must Haves (Summer Version)

These are my absolute favorite #summertime #makeup must-have products; the holy grails of my #flawless summer look. Some of these product were a bit more costly than others but I assure you that a lot of testing and though went into including them in this list. The NARS, Bumble and Bumble, MUFE, Laura Mercier, and Beauty Blender are available at #Sephora with a phenomenal return policy if you don't absolutely love the product.

At $20, the BB sponge seemed so over priced at first glance but I'm so glad I #splurged on it! The sponge mimics your skin's natural texture and leaves you with a beautifully even #airbrush look.

This blush is life! My golden undertones looove any kind of coral/ peach accents, so naturally this blush looks amazing. It's cheap at $6 and the perfect finishing touch to my everyday look

Bumble and Bumble. Don't Blow It (Fine) Hair Styler
Bumble and Bumble. Don't Blow It (Fine) Hair Styler

This is hands down THE best hair product I own. When the #humidity is out of control, this creme tames my frizzalicious mane of hair with very little effort! Work a small glob of it from your hairline out while your hair is damp (but not dripping) and then pin-curl, knot bun, or air dry it. The results are fabulous frizz-free waves. I'm so glad I stumbled across this product

Maybelline Ultra Liner® Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

If it's really hot and I just know my makeup will slide of my face within minutes for being outside, I like to throw on Maybelline's Ultra Liner. It is incredibly waterproof and long lasting. It takes some practice to master the art of liquid liner cat eyes, but anything is possible if you believe!

MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer
MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer

This mattifying primer instantly blurs and turns my oily T-zone into a smooth #matte surface for my foundation. I can't live without this primer during the humid east coast summers

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

A good setting powder is a MUST HAVE for any liquid foundation. I like to use mine to set my concealer and foundation. This one is a little pricey but the finish and the fact that it doesn't leave a cast on tan skin makes it absolutely worth it!

Maybelline Full 'N Soft® Waterproof Mascara
Maybelline Full 'N Soft® Waterproof Mascara

For my everyday look, I like to keep my eyelashes looking natural while my moderate winged eyeliner does the talking. However my lashes are depressingly straight and could always use some volume so this mascara is perfect for me! I've been using it for years and swear by it.
