Top 7 Beauty Essentials for Summer 2016

The Summer is in full bloom and I already have 7 items that are a STAPLE for me everyday. This is one of the hottest Summers that I can remember so far, therefore I have changed my beauty routine quite a bit. Check out my top 7 Beauty Essentials of 2016.

  1. Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Modern Renaissance Palette – This palette is perfect for Summer. It has so many warm colors to match every skin tone. You will be able to create a variety of looks from Office attire to a more dramatic look for a night on the town. Get yours HERE.
  2. MAC Skin Mineralized Finish – Dark Tan- This is a great alternative to wearing liquid or cream foundation. I receive great coverage from this powder alone and it’s a lighter option for my skin. Get yours HERE
  3. Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector- I don’t use this everyday. I only use this on days that I know the humidity will be outrageous, or if I’m out of town in a new climate. This product is so good for keeping the skin matte without going dry. Get yours HERE
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette- This palette is awesome!! I’m able to get multi functions out of it due to the different shades. Not only do I contour (because its Summer time, so you know…I gotta have a slim face), but I also use it to correct any areas and for blush! There are several different shades of this palette, be sure to get the one that best fits your skin tone.
  5. MAC Oil Control Lotion- This was bought kinda on accident, but I ended up loving it. I sometimes use this as a moisturizer to help control shine. From what I can tell it’s pretty effective in doing so. Get Yours HERE. 
  6. Pat McGrath Highlighter- HANDS DOWN this was worth the entire $75 that it cost. This product gives me a GLOW that comes from within like NONE OTHER! It’s not chunky and gives me a sun kissed glow with every application. You can also achieve the dewy, glowy, look by using the balm side of the stick. This product was a limited edition and is unfortunately sold out.
  7. Embryalisse Lait Creme – This is the moisturizer of ALL moisturizers. I typically use this at night to help moisturize my skin while I sleep. I was told about this product when I went to a Renny Vasquez class. I alternate this with Organic Coconut Oil. Get yours HERE
