Summer beauty essential:

Pop Beauty Stain Stay

why i love it:

Stain stays on all day (through swimming and drinking) without drying out your lips. Add a lipstick on top for double staying power or wear it with a balm for a supple, subtle look.

Shop:Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle

Summer Beauty Essential:

Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle

WHY I LOVE IT:

Mediterranean Honeysuckle is my favorite fragrance for summer! It really makes you feel like you're sitting in the Mediterranean, an escape. The blues of water there helped inspire the beautiful packaging too.

Shop: Nars Pure Tinted Moisturizer

Summer Beauty Essential:

NARS Pure Tinted Moisturizer

WHY I LOVE IT:

It’s sheer and thin, so it goes on easy and just gives your skin a sun-kissed glow. Your skin gets a slight tan in the summer, even if you don’t sit in the sun, so this just helps you even out your skin tone and give you a golden glow at the same time.

Shop: Biologique Recherche L’Eauxygenante

Summer Beauty Essential:

Biologique Recherche L’Eauxygenante

WHY I LOVE IT:

I love the L'Eauxygenante from Biologique Recherche, which is available for purchase at my Atelier! It improves the skin’s ability to adapt to different climates, and then energizes the epidermis, as well as hydrating, soothing and refreshing the skin. It also comes in an easy on-the-go spray to refresh throughout the day.

Shop: Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil

Summer Beauty Essential:

Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil

WHY I LOVE IT:

Since I am trying to keep my tan going, I am trying to moisturize as much as I can by using this amazing face oil that keeps my skin stay balanced and hydrated, morning and night. And of course my other favorite is blush! Right now I am into Apricot for the perfect pop of color.

Shop: OUAI Wave Spray

Summer Beauty Essential:

OUAI Wave Spray

WHY I LOVE IT:

It’s literally like a dip in the ocean without the dryness! It gives the same, if not better, piecey wavy texture to the hair as sea salt sprays without the drying qualities of salt! Instead, it uses rice protein to create movement and waves while also nourishing your strands.

Shop: Active Argan Tinted Bronzing Oil Drops

Summer Beauty Essential:

Active Argan Tinted Bronzing Oil Drops

WHY I LOVE IT:

I’ve decided that this summer is all about the Cher song “Gypsys Tramps And Thieves.” It embodies this care-free attitude about hair that is windswept and messy; smoky eyes left over from a long beach night; and a golden glow that is bronzed, yet not tan. For that look, I’m loving the Bronzing Oil from Active Argan because being bronzed can’t happen on dehydrated, parched skin!
