Favourite Summer Products
Getting ready for Summer is so different than getting ready for any other season. You have to be ready to battle the heat and humidity while trying to maintain your skin, hair, makeup, and tan. Here are the best products to help you out!
My go summer scent right now is this! It’s a little hard to find but Amazon has some!
we all know how the summer humidity can take a toll on our hair. Plus its super hot out and who really wants to be taking out their hairdryer, straightener or curling rod? Not me. But I also don’t want my hair to be a big mess or in a perpetual bun all summer long. Here are the best products to make your hair look great with minimal effort!
Sea Salt Spray
This gives me the lust worthy beauty waves that I see all over Pinterest and Instagram! All I do it spray a bit into my hands after my shower and crunch it into my hair. Then I go about my getting ready routine, which includes getting dressed, makeup and lounging around till I actually leave.
This gives me pretty straight hair without the iron! It also makes my hair smell fantastic. I again spray this into my hand, and comb it through my hair with my fingers, then I brush it out leaving my hair wet but brushed straight. My hair will actually stay this straight for 2 days after doing this. This is by far the best product to give you straight hair without the iron!
If you are going to brave and heat up your whole bathroom, firstly I give you respect, second I’ll tell you about a product that will lock in your style! Beat the humidity with this style holder, I got mine from Sephora.
Hands down this is the most important thing in your bag or on your wrist. I keep a few hanging out in the bottom of my purse and I keep one on my wrist pretty much all the time. If you’re at the beach, or even walking around the city being able to throw your hair up in a pony tail or a bun is essential. Props if they are also cute and can double as a bracelet!
I love being tan in the summer, and although I’m pale and can’t naturally achieve this look; I’ve found a great routine that I’ve been using for 2+ years, check it out here. I bounce back and fourth between two brands, and I share all my pro tips that I’ve learned from my tanning experiences! Use my code “TayylorTan” to receive a free mitt with any mousse purchase! Shop here.
I like to have serval different masks that I rotate through. Ill be posting about all them shortly! To see my general skin care routine check it out here. Right now I’m using ones from Shoppers! They have a whole wall of single use masks. They are super cheap, my skin loves them, and I love having a selection to choose from! I’m thinking of doing a whole post on face masks, and reviewing the shoppers ones.
There are so many different brands, you really have to find one that works for your skin! My top choice is the Nars. The lightest shade is the perfect colour for me when I’m a little tan. If I have a darker tan on I’ll use a darker powder and play with some bronzer. I picked mine up at Sephora.
I have 3 that I love, and I use daily throughout the year. They are Smashbox, Buxom, and Rimmel. Sadly none of these are water proof. In the summer, to stop my sweat from making my mascara run, I use waterproof options! I haven’t found a holy grail option yet, so if you have one leave it in the comments below! My favourite so far is the Orange on pictures, LashBlast Volume by CoverGirl.
This is an amazing product to throw in your purse, beach bag,and just keep with you all summer long. What is is a can of water that will spray on your face/body to refresh you in the deep summer heat! This is my lifesaver in the summer, a lil spritz on my face, back of my neck and I’m completely refreshed.
Sweat, Water Splashes, Rain, or even a Tornado could not move my makeup after I use this setting spray. This is my secret weapon in the deep of summer, when I’m going to the beach or anywhere where I fear my makeup may smudge or run. Two sprays and my face is protected. I have both the large size which stays on the counter, and the smaller size which I usually keep in my bag incase I forgot to spray or want to touch up.
I use this in combination with the setting spray above for those super hot, humid days or if I’m going to the beach. This just adds another layer of protection and keeps my makeup looking great all day long.
In the summers I tend to wear less makeup because I had the feeling of too much on my face in the scorching heat.
This miricell water takes all my makeup off so easily. It doesn’t dry out my skin or leave it oily, and it’s super easy to pack in a beach bag. I keep this in my bag with a few cotton pads incase I need to take it all of-like if I’m going to be spending the day in the pool or the lake!
Makeup Removing wipes
Easier way to take off all your makeup with no fuss. Take out a wipe, & wipe your entire face before cleansing. I ran out of my clean and clear wipes, so I’m using baby wipes. These are great to keep in your bag incase you need to take off your makeup without it smudging everywhere. For instance if you’re going to the beach to swim, or to the pool and you don’t want to end up with racoon eyes.
