Summer brings with it so many wonderful perks – beach vacations, breezy sundresses, longer evenings to spend al fresco, the list goes on and on – however, it also brings with it some not-so-wonderful beauty challenges. Therefore, we’ve enlisted the help of famed influencer, beauty expert, and fashionista Jess of NotJessFashion to give us her top 5 summer beauty essentials.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray: The summer season is the perfect time to let your hair be as natural as possible. Whether you’ve been at the beach all day and want to transition straight to happy hour or you just want to create wavy beachy hair, this spray makes your locks look instantly voluminous and sexy. The texture it adds to your hair is simply unbelievable.
Sephora Collection Face Mask: I cannot stress enough how important it is to take care of your skin during the summer months (and all year long!). Since excessive sun exposure tends to dry out your skin, I suggest applying the Sephora Collection face masks once a week to replenish and rehydrate your skin. The best part about these masks? There are 8 different varieties ranging from pomegranate, green tea, and rose to more daring varietals like algae and lotus, all have different benefits to leave your skin radiant and glowing.
Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil Light: this product has a cult following and for good reason. This new light version of the original Pure Argan Oil is perfect for summer as it’s specially formulated to absorb quickly and lightly and works flawlessly to hydrate, balance, and heal all skin types. Wear it under makeup or even instead of makeup – this is a must have during the humid summer months.
Benefit Watt’s Up Cream-to Powder Highlighter: For that instant summer glow, this highlighter is perfect. It’s creamy, lightweight formula is ideal for summer and you only need a touch to brighten your complexion. It’s long lasting and works on all skin types and skin tones – this is guaranteed to make you look radiant and nothing short of magical all summer long.
Beauty Blender: This revolutionary blender ensures a streak-free application of powders and creams while minimizing product waste. The design of this product may seem simple, but trust me it gets results and let’s face it the last thing you want to feel in the summer is that you’ve applied too much heavy makeup, let your natural beauty shine!
