Welcome back to all of our lovely readers, we are here to give you the inside scoop on this summer’s must have makeup. If you are anything like us and want to look fabulous without looking greasy then look no further, because we’ve got you covered.
First up is foundation! The base of any good face, one’s foundation during the summer must be able to stay on your face all day but not look like a cakey mess. Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation does just that. It is our holy grail foundation, super lightweight on the face but extremely pigmented giving you a flawless makeup look without having to add five layers of foundation. Plus it also contains SPF 15 as an added touch so even if you forget to apply sunscreen, this foundation will still have you covered.
Drugstore alternative: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation $9
Next up is the perfect highlight. No summer look is complete without one. This was the toughest choice to make as tons of new highlighters have just hit the market, but there can be only one who takes the cake. To us, this is the Becca Cosmetics Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Highlighter. This is the perfect highlighter to take with you on all your summer vacas. Plus with its blendable silky smooth formula and blinding color pay off, what’s not to love?

Bronzer and a good highlighter to us is a better pairing than PB & J, which is why we took our time selecting this next makeup must have. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer just can’t be beat. This cult classic gives you the perfect touch of color that leaves you looking perfectly sun kissed. Super blendable and buildable this bronzer is practically mistake proof.

While out enjoying the last few weeks of summer, the last thing on your mind while jumping into a pool, lake, ocean ,etc, should be your eyebrows. You should trust that from the moment you do them in the morning they’ll be fully intact until you wash off your makeup late in the night. Which is why we have selected Wunder2’s Wunderbrow. This eyebrow solution comes in 5 shades and is long lasting, budge-proof, transfer-proof, and waterproof. Meaning your eyebrows will stay looking FAB all day long!

Finally, nothing finishes off a summer look like smooth plump lips which is why our finale makeup must have this summer is a lip balm! More specifically Rosebud Perfume Co.’s Rosebud Salve. This cult classic is a must have during the summer heat. It calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns because yes your lips can actually get sunburned too.
