Six Summer Beauty Products

During the summer months I like to keep my makeup routine to the basics. I start with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and apply using a Beauty Blender. I started using the blender a few months ago and really like it. It helps the moisturizer to go on smooth and gives it a dewy fresh look. If I feel like I need a little color, I’ll put on a bit of Bare Minerals Blush in giddy pink.


Unless I’m going to the beach or pool, I use a little Benefit They’re Real Mascara to define my eyes and then throw on some lip gloss. I rotate between Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in coquette and Buxom Lip Polish in leslie. The Smashbox doesn’t feel sticky like the Buxom, but I’m convinced the Buxom makes my lips look fuller. There’s always a trade-off, right?!


I finish it off with a spritz of my signature scent (read more here). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes and I’m ready to run out the door! What are the beauty products you can’t live without this summer?

  1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is my go to as well in the summer months, I love how easy you can just put it on (also love my beauty blender) and just be all set for the day. It is nice to not need to use powder, bronzer and what not. Such a great product!
    I really feel like I need to get on this Benefit They’re Real train..I have heard so many great things!
