Must-have Summer Beauty Products!

Summer is close and I want to share my must-have summer beauty products with you and I’ll show you my favorite ones in each category! 

1. Gold-bronze Highlighters 


– Left to right: Gleam (NYX), Sunburst(ABH),Bubbly,Dripping in Gold & Golden Bronze


Gold / Bronze highlighters in summer are a must for me! These 2 are my faves. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow (currently sold out) and the NYX Liquid Illuminator in Gleam. The NYX one is a liquid highlighter which is even better for summer, because it lasts even longer while touching water. They are both extremely pigmented and totally worth buying! The ABH palette is of course more on the highend/expensive side, but you get 4 huge highlights which are amazing quality! They even have other Glow Kits if you have a lighter skin tone. But if you want a drugstore option, the NYX one ist amazing, easy to apply and gives your face a beautiful and radient glow. 
2. Liquid Lipticks


– Left to right: Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit (Maliboo), Kylie (Exposed), Kylie (Ginger), The Balm Meet Matte Hughes (Sincere), Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip (Speed Dial)


Liquid Lipsticks are always a must for me! I have so many I can’t get enough. My favorites for summer are definitely nude/brown/coral shades! I think pink shades are great too, I just don’t think it suits me so I don’t own any pink lippies! These are my faves for the summer. They all have amazing pigmentation and last FOREVER. I can eat & drink and they’re still on my lips. Just make sure to moisturize your lips before applying liquid lipsticks (especially Kylie’s) because they can be so drying and you’ll feel like your lips are the desert.

3. Bronzer, Bronzer & again BRONZER!


Up to down: Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzer, The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer & Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Bronzers are a MUST in summer! Of course they are a must in winter too when you turn all pale again, but in summer you need bronzer to enhance your beautiful tan! Or if you can’t tan bronzer is the best way to give you a healthy bronzed look! These are my favorite bronzers for summertime. They are all pigmented and blend well into your skin. They aren’t hard to blend and look very natural!

– Kylie Cosmetics The Burgundy Palette- 42$

– Tarte Tartelette in Bloom – 46$



– Sleek Palette in All Night Long – 12$

Just like highlighters, gold-bronze eyeshadows are a must for me! These are some of my favorite bright, fun, gold shimmery eyeshadows. They all have amazing pigmentation and are long lasting. The eyeshadows I chose range from drugstore to highend! 
5. Waterproof makeup! 

Waterproof makeup is extremely practical if you want to wear makeup to the beach or pool. It’s also helps when you sweat a lot in the heat. This includes: Mascara, Powder, Blush etc. Here are some of my favorites!


– Maybelline Super Stay 24h Waterproof Powder

These mascaras aren’t waterproof, because I don’t own any waterproof mascaras, but in the past I had great experiences with Maybelline waterproof mascaras!

Bright, fun colors are the best for summer! I love nudes,greens,blues,purples, anything really! O.P.I & Essie is pretty much all I use and these are my favorite shades! They both last long and have a wide range of shades.
Hope this was helpful & have an amazing summer! Comment below your favorite summer beauty product!
