My Favourite Summer Products!

Ahhhh summertime! I love a simple and fresh look for summer with really light makeup. I've been loving so many products lately that I think you guys will love too!

Caudalie Grape Water A few daily spritzes of this leaves my skin super refreshed, super soothed, and super hydrated! The only ingredients are grape fruit water and grape fruit juice... yum!
Dior One Essential Serum I've been incredibly impressed with this product for seriously reducing the inflamation and size of my breakouts. It feels and smells amazing (as all Dior products do) and gently exfoliates while eliminating toxins in the skin and enhancing the performance of all your other skincare products. It's pricey... but it works.
Origins VitaZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer SPF 15 This is my favourite multitasker of the summer! It works perfectly to protect and refresh the skin with lots of antioxidants and delivers the perfect amount of hydration. I love the self adjusting tint and light fragrance. It's barely-there coverage teams up perfectly with a touch of concealer here and there and you're good to go!
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation I just can't find anything I like better than this absolutely amazing foundation. Perfect amount of coverage, gorgeous natural finish, and a lightweight texture... What more could you want!?
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder I get tons of compliments when I wear this bronzer. It's moisturizing, long lasting, has the perfect glow and easily doubles as a blush when applied liberally to the cheeks. The colours are designed to mimic a natural tan and give the perfect sun kissed look!
Benefit Badgal Lash Say hello to long, thick, feathery, dark kohl lashes with this extremely buildable and drama enhancing mascara! It's an old favourite that I've had a hard time living with out these last few weeks!
Jack Black Lip Balm I recently pick up one of these bad boys in Lemon and fell in love! It's more like lemon cake and gives a great hydrated look thats natural and not glossy.
Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy When I need that extra something something to polish off a look without the fussiness of a lipstick and stickiness of a gloss this is my go to! It's plenty hydrating and is such a flattering pink-peach shade that goes with everything!
OPI Nail Polish in Pink Friday There's nothing like a pretty bubblegum pink nail colour in the summer! It compliments a tan and all those easy breezy summer outfits.
Real Techniques Brushes Specifically the buffing, blush, and domed shadow brushes. These brushes apply product beautifully and maintain their shape so well! They're a comfortable fit in the hand and come with great cases that work perfectly for travel! Pick them up if you can... they're wonderful!
