Five Summer Beauty Must Haves

Now that summer is in full swing, I’m all about low-stress beauty products, so I can get ready as quickly as possible. Today, I thought I’d share the five products I have been using constantly so far this summer.

A neutral eye palette
I love a neutral eye look all year long, but it’s a must for me in the summer. My favorite is the NUDE 'Tude® palette from theBalm. The pigment is amazing, and I love rotating between “sexy” and “sleek.” Plus, it's a great price!
I’ve been on search for a good bronzer, and I really love the Amazonian clay waterproof bronzer from Tarte! It has a nice, natural look and lasts forever.
Dry shampoo
Dry shampoo is another necessity in the summer. I use Batiste cherry dry shampoo and amika perk up dry shampoo. Both are great and cost under $10.
Bright lipstick
I got the Stowaway Crème Lipstick Trio in my December 2015 PopSugar box, and I’ve recently started using it because the colors are fun for summer. The raspberry color is my favorite, and I love that it goes on smooth and lasts a long time.

Nail polishing tool

I received this product for free in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own.

I never knew I needed the Emjoi Micro-Nail in my life until I tried it out. I loved how the buffer added a gorgeous shine to my nails. It was also insanely quick—the roller spins 360 degrees at 30 times per second! My nails looked so good I could have left off the nail polish, but I was surprised when I painted my nails, how much easier it was to paint them! The Emjoi Micro-Nail is the perfect product for achieving great summer nails.


  1. That Nude "tude palette looks gorgeous! To me it looks very similar to the Lorac Unzipped palette, but much cheaper! Also, I may need to pick up that Tarte bronzer. :)

  2. Definitely looking into the nail polish buffer! And the dry shampoo! I've heard good things about the one you linked but I'm worried it will show in my dark hair.

  3. Agreed with all of these staples, a nude palette is perfect for the summer! Dry shampoo is also my best friend like all the time :)!

  4. I have tried many dry shampoos but not the cherry!

  5. I love bright lipsticks in the summer. Dry shampoo is a must in the summer.

  6. My hair always gets so oily during the summer that I have to use dry shampoo! I've heard nothing but great things about Batiste, and I know that I need to try out, especially since you can't beat the price!

  7. Holy cow, girl! Those nails! (I'm a nail-biter so I'm always impressed by the length and health of other people's nails.)

    I love the scents of the Batiste dry shampoos!

  8. Tarte is my favorite makeup brand by far and Batiste is the only dry shampoo I use! Great picks!

  9. That bronzer is my favorite! I've been using Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil (it actually smells like chocolate haha), but I can't wait to get back to my Tarte once this one is gone!

  10. Your nails are always so amazing - that tool sounds fabulous! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  11. I agree that these are must haves. But I might use them all season round. :P
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. YES to everything! I can't go without any of these products during the summer!

  13. Yes, yes, yes!! Also I like gel moisturizers instead of the normal, creamy ones for the warm months!

  14. Love all of these, but that bronzer is MY FAVE!! It is the best and somehow looks good on everyone.

  15. your nails are so pretty and long! that thing looks so fancy and cool. i love the batiste dry shampoo, my fave!
