Today, I wanted to quickly share some beauty/skincare/makeup products that I have been loving this summer. Some of them are my long time favorites and some are recent discoveries
Favorite tanning products: I love to have a bit of color on my skin during summer. Sun bathing is not something I want to do (nor have time to do). Therefore, I depend on reliable self tanners to create my sunshine. I recently discovered the Tanceuticals CC self tanning body lotion and face lotion and am loving both products so far. It dries really quickly and has a wonderful coconut smell. Both products blend easily and do not come off on clothes or sheets. The lotion do take 12 hours to fully develop (I use the color dark). Since it's a color and correct tanning lotion, it improves the appearance and health of your skin as well. If you want an immediate hint of color, I've been using the Shiseido self-tanning gel for years. A little goes a long way. It does have that typical self tan smell but does not linger long. This product blends, comes off evenly and gives you a natural-looking tan.
Favorite summer foundation: A friend of mine gave me the Clarins sunscreen multi-protection tin to try a few months ago and it has become my new favorite (especially in the summer). Even though it's a sunscreen product, it does give great coverage. On a day to day basis, this is all I wear.
Favorite sunscreen: Since the Clarins product I mentioned above has SPF 50, I don't need a separate sunscreen. When I do, the Tatcha pore perfecting sunscreen is my go-to. I really cannot say enough good thing about this product. It really is silky and weightless. To say I am obsessed with this product is an understatement =)
Favorite facial sprays: The Urban Decay all nighter setting spray is probably old news to most of you. I've been using it for years to set my makeup. I also have the Mario Badescu facial spray in my purse to keep my skin moisturized during those hot summer days.
Favorite nail colors: I am all about subtle nail polishes in the summer. I've gathered 4 of my favorites (OPI My Vampire Is Buff, OPI Funny Bunny, Essie Fiji, Essie Mint Candy Apple). These shades are romantic, light and airy just like the summer season should
