As warmer temps and summer weather is right around the corner, I rounded up some of my Sephora summer favorites and some new-to-me products I’ve tried recently and will absolutely be using this summer. The winner for me is the CC + Nude Glow foundation but it could never replace the love I have for the Supergoop Glow Screen. I don’t care WHERE you get your SPF from, just make sure you’re wearing it every*single*day! Also, a new shade of red lipstick? Who is she!?
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo – Even the most resilient heads of hair are no match for a hot day by the beach or pool or spending time outside. Save your hair from over-washing/styling and use dry shampoo. This one is my fav and the smell is intoxicating!
Summer Fridays CC Me Vitamin C Serum – Vitamin C and niacinamide serum to enhance skin brightness. I use this in the mornings, especially after Good Genes or if I use retinol. Has definitely helped reduce dark spots!
Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Mat Matte Lipstick – Truth be told, I totally bought this for the packaging but ending up loving the color and wear of this lipstick. The shade I’m wearing above (Goldie Red) is a brighter (orangier) red than my signature NARS color but I’m loving it. Definitely have to reapply more than a powermatte but very moisturizing!
It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow – I’ve started using this the past few weeks and I’m really loving it. I love it has added SPF but also has a great light coverage. Enough to make those pores almost nonexistent.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask – While I always find this product to be a winner, I use it in the summer on those extra dry spots like elbows or heels if they need a little love.
Dr. Jart Cicapair – I recently bought this in the sephora sale and it literally neutralizes ANY redness you put it over- it comes out of the jar green and blends so easily, you only need a tiny bit. It’s got SPF which is a huge bonus!
Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops – Staying out of the sun? Mix these drops with your moisturizer and you’ll have the dreamiest summer glow.
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Hair Mask – Summer activities (salt water, chlorine, sun & dryness) are not great for our hair. To get that bouncy shine back, I do this mask once a week.
Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush – In the summer, I always end up wearing less makeup and I love a simple cream blush. This one wins for me because it’s lips too.
SuperGoop Glow Screen – I won’t rant about the importance of sunscreen because if you’re here, you already know. SPF, everyday, in multiple layers. I put this on after my moisturizer and before the CC + Nude Glow cream.
Sunday Riley Good Genes – I’ve been using this for years. With this product you MUST use sunscreen but you should already being doing that, so no big deal. This is a great product for that extra supple skin.
SuperGoop Glow Screen Body – Just because you put it in your face, you can’t forget to slather your whole body in SPF! This has a bit of shimmer and will leave you truly glowing.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Highlighter – A golden & rosy highlighter for that instant sun kissed look.
Gucci Bloom (Travel Size) or Travel Roller – Hear me out, the smaller sizes are great to tuck in your purse when you’re out for the day. Get a little musty while running errands? This is perfect to refresh without having to carry a massive spritz in your bag.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – In the summer, it’s just as important to ensure your skin is hydrated. I love the way this feels on your skin. So light, a little chilly, and so hydrating.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – A tried and true favorite. Put it on at night and wake up with soft lippies!
NARS Powermatte (my trusted signature lip!) – Whenever I wear this specific color, I get a million questions. I even wore this to my wedding in the color: Don’t Stop. It stays on like a dream but isn’t too drying for a matte formula.
Peace Out Acne Patches – Too much time in the sun making your skin overproduce oil? These patches are awesome to knock out pesky pimples and blend into the skin so easily you could wear it out and no one would notice.
