Summer is the worst season for beauty. The heat makes even the most intense beauty lover think about how to pare down the number of products to apply, since they’ll inevitably start melting off in a few hours. That said, here are some products that have passed the test these past few weeks/months.
This dry shampoo is a life saver for allowing your hair to make the cut between day and night without a full-on shower. To prevent your hair from drying out when you are able to squeeze in a wash, Wen’s Cleansing Conditioner formula is a genius product. This particular scent: spring gardenia green tea is my new favorite too. For hair that needs some hold, especially with humidity, the spring honey lilac nourishing mousse is a non-tacky formula that washes out easily at the end of the day. Lastly, protection against hot tools (or the sun) is best packaged in this Matrix Heat Buffer spray, which dries quickly and texture-less-ly.
I’ve been wearing this combination for the past few months and my skin and I officially love them. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Makeup is heavy-duty coverage that goes on like water, which is all your skin really wants in the summer. The point of the line is to illuminate and the small but mighty concealer does a great job of that under the eyes or around the high planes of the face.
And a fun one. This Patchology FlashMasque Illuminate Lace Sheet Mask is just too perfect with your favorite snapchat filter for a girl’s night in. Pro tip for all sheet masks: stick them in the fridge and they do double-duty as depuffing skincare. Cute phone case here.
