Benefit – They’re Real Mascara

10 steps to soft, healthy hair-11

Summer is almost here and we need to get ready for it! From shower gels to make up and moisturizers, our body needs different products in the summer than it does in the winter. Our skin is much less dry in the summer, we need extra sun protection factor and bolder colors should also make an appearance. We’ve already talked about some skincare products you need this spring and today it’s time we give you 10 essential beauty products that you absolutely need this summer. We’ve also included purchase links to every product, to make it easier for you to purchase it.

10. L’Occitane – Almond Shower Oil

L'Occitane - Shower Oil

This amazing shower oil is just that: amazing! It will moisturize your skin so well, that you won’t need lotion after you get out of the shower. Which is pretty great, considering that sometimes during those hot summer days, we start sweating as soon as we get out of the shower. This almond shower oil is also great for shaving your legs!

9. Urban Decay – Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Urban Decay – Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

This summer is all about color and this Urban Decay palette is just what you need to make your summer days and night pop! Urban Decay are known for making really good eye shadows and putting together perfect palettes, so try this one and we’re certain you will not regret it.

8. Clinique – Chubby Stick

Clinique – Chubby Stick

We love Clinique’s Chubby Stick! The colors are great and light and they won’t stain your lips too much, just a bit of color and a lot of moisture. They’re also quite affordable, but if you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, the perfect replacement is the Nivea Fruity Shine line. They’re cheap as dirt and they’re stunning. The color won’t last as long as with the Chubby Sticks, but they’re 3 dollars a piece, so…

7. Benefit – They’re Real Mascara

Benefit – They’re Real Mascara

This is a Holy Grail mascara! It’s everything you want a mascara to be and more. It won’t clump your eyelashes, it won’t flake and the brush is made so that it can be held vertically for better control. We can’t recommend this product enough!

6. Chantecaille – Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen SPF 50 Primer

Chantecaille – Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen SPF 50 Primer

Summer’s almost here, so you better start protecting your skin from the sun. The first step in doing that is to choose a good SPF cream. For those who wear makeup every day, an SPF primer is the perfect choice, and this one from Chantecaille, while it may be expensive, is really great.

5. Bioderma – Sensibio H2O

Bioderma – Sensibio H2O

This makeup remover, micellar water is one of those essential beauty products that one needs to have in their kit at all times, no matter the season. It removes makeup well, it doesn’t leave the face dry or oily and it doesn’t stain or irritate your eyes. What it does is leave a bit of a bitter taste on your lips after you’ve used it to remove your lipstick.

4.  La Roche-Posay – Lipid Replenishing Body Balm

La Roche-Posay – Lipid Replenishing Body Balm

Dry skin is dry no matter the season. Granted, it is a bit less dry in the summer, but that doesn’t mean that women with dry skin should stop using body cream once summer arrives. This particular body balm from La Roche-Posay is really good and it will leave your skin nourished and non-oily.

3. Bourjois – 123 Perfect CC Cream

Bourjois – 123 Perfect CC Cream

A CC cream is aimed at those who don’t want to use foundation, but who still need a bit of coverage. The BB in BB creams stands for blemish balm and CC stands for color control. It will just give you an even color without make you look as if you have foundation on. And sometimes, in the summer, that is exactly what most women need in terms of makeup.

2. Chanel – Vitalumiere Foundation

Chanel – Vitalumiere

If you’re looking for a great foundation for summer days, Chanel is the brand to go to. Vitalumiere is great for people with normal and dry skin, as it will nourish it without making it look oily. It’s a product that you would use if you wanted a full face of makeup. For going out during the day or to the beach, try a CC or BB cream instead.

1. Laura Mercier – Secret Camouflage

Laura Mercier – Secret Camouflage

No matter the season, everyone’s got something to hide in terms of blemishes, dark circles and scars. Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage is the best concealer on the market, hands-down. If you want something lighter, because this product can be a lot of things, but light is not one of them, then you should try a highlighter stick, such as the Clinique Airbrush Concealer, the YSL Touche Eclat or the Sephora Smoothing and Brightening Concealer.
