summer beauty essentials

Shop

PIN IT

I don’t know about you but this time of year I always love to refresh my makeup, skincare and haircare to adjust to the season! When summer hits, hot and humid in Dallas, or when I’m spending a lot of time at the lake or the beach, I like to reach for golden, dewy makeup, refreshing, lightweight skincare and haircare that leaves my hair feeling hydrated and effortless. Below I’ve rounded up my summer beauty essentials in each category!

yall know how much i love the OG dibs duo stick, but this glowtour duo is PERFECT for summer! just a little bit more glow! i love the shades ‘starlit’ and ‘pink cosmos’. it’s a bronzer and blush in one and the blush is so glowy that it can also double as a highlight!

just got this brow tint a week ago and it’s become a MUST in my makeup bag now! it gives your brows fullness and shape and also tints them all at the same time! super easy to use and looks SO natural, which i love for summer!

shop now 

 

this is my go to foundation when i’m at the pool or beach and i still want some coverage! or even just everyday in the summer when im out and about. i’d has spf in it, it feels so lightweight but still has really great coverage! i wore this yesterday on our flight to mexico!

shop now 

 

i literally have this lip butter balm in every color. they just came out with this iced coffee color and it’s the perfect neutral / nude! feels so hydrating and gives your lips the perfect amount of natural color!

shop now 

 

one of my fave bronzers year round, for years now. i think it gives you that perfect “just got back from the beach” bronzed glow on your face! looks really natural and it doesn’t have any shimmer in it (i personally don’t like shimmer in my bronzer!)

shop now 

 

ust got this primer and it’s AMAZING! kind of like skincare and makeup in one and primes your skin for makeup! it’s hydrating, helps to reduce redness, and just loooveee the roller applicator!

IYKYK! i legit wear this every single day. mix it with your moisturizer or a tinted SPF to give your skin a hydrated bronzy glow! also has so many incredible skincare ingredients in it too! so you’re killing multiple birds with one stone!

shop now 

 

i struggle with discoloration on my face from sun damage, especially in the summer! this serum has helped with dark spots / sun damage SO much! i use it almost every single night!

shop now 

 

LOVE this new moisturizer for summer. it’s so lightweight but feels SO luxe! it’s also a great way to prep your skin for makeup and really makes your skin look and feel smooth as glass!

shop now 

 

this body glow oil is INCREDIBLE! it gives you an INSTANT bronzy glow / shimmer, and it doesn’t transfer to your clothes at all! it also feels so hydrating and luxe on your skin and doesn’t smell weird! put it on your legs if you’re wearing shorts or on your chest and collar bones for the glowiest bronzed skin!

shop now 

 

another moisturizer i love in the summer because it helps SO much with dark spots and discoloration! hydrates your skin while brightening it at the same time which i definitely need in the summer!

shop now 

 

my HOLY GRAIL self tanner! not streaky, doesn't smell, goes on so effortless and leaves you with a deep, sun kissed tan that looks like you spent hours at the beach.

shop now 

 

cannot live without my dolce glow tanning drops! i use these year round. i love to mix them into my favorite moisturizer and apply to my face for a glowy, sun kissed look!

shop now 

 

one of my favorite SPFs on no makeup days! you’re protecting your skin from the sun while also giving it a really pretty glow! this also works great as a primer!

shop now 

 

another tinted spf i love! this one isn’t quite as “glowy” as the supergoop. but i love how hydrating it is. has hyaluronic acid in it so you’re taking care of your skin, hydrating it, protecting it from the sun, and giving it just a little bit of a tint + coverage all at the same time!

teleties makes my all time favorite claw clips! they hold your hair so well and don't slip or slide around. the tortoise is my favorite because it's a neutral + versatile, but they have SO many cute colors for summer on their website!

shop now 

these two briogeo hair products i posted about on tiktok are some of my all time favorites for summer weather + pool days!

love spraying this in my hair when I'm going to the beach or pool and I know i'm just going to let it air dry! gives your hair a wavy, beach look without drying it out or making it sticky. another favorite I brought to mexico with me!

shop now 

 

a leave in conditioner is definitely a MUST for me during the summer months! swimming and being out in the sun can make your hair so dry, but this keeps it hydrated, soft and cuts the frizz with humidity!
