The 10 BEST Summer Beauty Staples

Posted on

Staying fresh in the sweltering heat seems impossible but this list of beauty blessings will keep you feeling fab. From sunscreen to lip treatments, these multi-use products will have you out the door in minutes and glowing all day.




Supergoop! Setting Mist with Rosemary SPF 50

This Defense Refresh spray provides an auto refresh feeling, as you mist yourself with minty rosemary that sets make-up, controls oil and delivers UV photo aging protection. Also try Supergoop Everyday SPF. Both available in travel size.



Bite Agave Lip Mask

Officially my favorite lip product EVER. This perfect formula keeps your lips moisturized but not sticky, while leaving you with a lip bitten finish that’s naturally yummy.



NARS Shadow Stick “Goddess”

We’re all about practicality and flawless execution here. This shimmery shadow stick can double as a highlighter. The beautiful champagne hue transforms perfectly from summer days to steamy nights.




It’s only right that I put you guys on… After travelling to Curacao this summer, I discovered my new favorite plant- aloe. After visiting the famous plantation and stocking up on the most amazing day cream, facial wash, chapstick, bug repellent, cleansing juice, etc.., my skin has never felt better. I highly recommend these products to keep your skin nourished especially after sun exposure.



Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

In order to maximize my sunkissed glow in the summer, I try to avoid applying concealer or any products that will cake up. This gelee is so easy to smear on, it provides a flawless hint of color to your cheeks and lips, all while keeping your skin dewy and smooth.



NARS Illuminator

Summer is a bad time to pile on heavy makeup so in order to keep my look minimal but still maintain a supernatural glow, I use the NARS Illuminators. They have become a staple in my beauty routine all year round. The bronze Laguna tint can replace any powder bronzer and the CopaCabana makes for a great highlighter without weighing you down.



Anastasia Clear Brow Gel

Keep them “on fleek” without looking overdone. This gel keeps your brows in place, without flaking and without you sweating your brows off.

Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler

Summer days are unpredictable. You never know if you’ll end up on diving in the deep end at the Gansevoort pool or heading to a Jersey beach on a weekday afternoon. Better skip the mascara and make your eyes pop with this clutch curler.

La Vanilla Deodorant

The best smelling and most effective natural deodorant on the market, in my opinion. This stuff smells so good you can’t help but sneak a wiff throughout the day. PLUS they sell it in travel size so you can bring it everywhere!

Evian Mist Spray

For all my fellow New Yorkers who use public transportation, you will thank me for this purchase. Use this water spray mist to revive ALL OVER. It keeps you feeling funky fresh when the heat starts to drag you down.
