Top Summer Beauty Products

 With the recent New York heat wave, it’s pretty clear summer’s at its peak. The 35 degree days feel like 42 degree days, and with that comes flushed faces and a new meaning to the term ‘dewy’ skin.
I’ve compiled my list of most loved summer beauty products to give that bare, bronzed, sun-kissed look, while staying SPF 30 protected. I’m talking my favorite lightweight moisturizers, safe sun necessities and bright pops of peach and coral. Not to mention my current skincare obsessions while you’re lazing in bed eating a giant watermelon. Enjoy!

Sulwhasoo – Perfecting Cushion

A lightweight coverage cushion compact that feels incredible on your skin, while the flexible film-fixing polymer offers a thin protective barrier for a flawless finish for 12 hours. The best thing is that it’s SPF 50+, able to protect your skin from the harsh summer sun. Buy it from sulwhasoo.com.

FOREO LUNA™ for Sensitive/Normal Skin

Really different but I seriously love this device! Foreo Luna is a silicone facial brush that channels both T-sonic pulsations for deep and gentle cleansing, and lower-frequency pulsations to reduce the signs of aging. Probably the best thing you could ask for in summer as it removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores of dirt, oil, and makeup residue, while enhancing the absorption of your favorite skin care products. Available at sephora.com

COLORESCIENCE SUNFORGETTABLE BRUSH SPF 30

Miracle worker! It keeps my face from getting shiny while keeping it protected all day. I just leave this in my hand bag and touch up my face throughout the day. Built in brush so there’s no fuss, and a clear compartment so you can see when you’re running low. Buy at colorescience.com

Boscia – Tsubaki Beauty Oil

I try to stay clear of oils usually because I already have quite naturally oily skin. You only need 3 drops of this beauty goodness to start feeling the effects. I put it on before my makeup that day, or right before I go to sleep under my night moisturizer. I find the more moisture you give your skin the less it attempts to produce more oils.

Flower Transforming Touch Powder-to-Cream Blush

Creme of the crop! Flower Beauty’s exclusive new Transforming Touch Powder-To-Creme Blush is the only blush with Liquid Powder Technology which helps you easily achieve a flawless, soft-focused glow with your fingertips. I was so intrigued when first trying this, but the blush is a buildable, blendable burst of color when applied just with my fingertips. Purchase it at flowerbeauty.com

COOLA DAY AT THE BEACH SPF 30

Stay protected on weekends and outings with my favorite SPF 30 spray sunscreen. The spray goes on with a non-greasy feel and is free from harsh chemicals and aerosols. COOLA’s “Perfect 10 Blend” soothes the skin while preventing inflammation caused by the sun. Not to mention… it smells like almond, coconut and orange – YES. Buy it at tommybahama.com

EVO – End Doctor

Your hair is going through enough with the heat and humidity from outside. It doesn’t need any additional damage from your hair tools. I’ve been using End Doctor recently and noticed the cream is strengthening my locks and sealing the cuticles and bind split ends. It reduces flyaways, increasing the pliability and manageability of hair. Buy it at evohair.com

I’ve been using UMBERTO’s Controller Conditioning Spray for the last few months now, and it has been my saviour this summer!

Controller adds shine and manageability, controls frizz and flyaways and helps improve split ends. Available for purchase at target.com

MILANI BRONZER XL FAKE TAN

This pressed face bronzer is an instant, healthy looking kiss of summer color in one no-fuss powder compact. The matte half acts as a base and contour for the face, neck and body, and the shimmery highlighter side will take you anywhere you want to glow. With a silky finish and oil-free formula, this bronzer stays where you want it to and lasts as long as you do. Personally, I’m obsessed with large bronzer palettes so this works perfectly for me.
