15 Of The Best Reviewed Summer Makeup Products
After years of being super loyal to IT Cosmetics Bye-bye Under-eye (which by the way, still love!), I decided to give Tarte’s Shape Tape a whirl because I was looking for a more lightweight concealer for summer. Not only does this concealer cover those dark circles and blend like a dream, but much like Bye-bye under-eye, just a teeny-tiny bit can go a looong way. It’s great for combination skin and doesn’t cake-up either.
We all know that the summer heat and humidity can be brutal–especially when it sends our sweat glands into overdrive, leaving us with clogged pores, black heads and (yay!) summer acne. If your skin is oily and prone to pimples– you know this struggle I’m describing is oh, so real. Mario Badescu’s drying lotion is the bomb dot com when it comes to combating oily, acne prone skin during the summer months. This product is formulated with salicylic acid, sulfur, and zinc oxide to draw oils and impurities from pores and also includes calamine which leaves your skin feeling cool and soothed.
These unique highlighters are perfect for summer days because they are ultra-light and melt into skin for a barely there feel. For my super fair skin, I love “Kitten”. It gives just the right amount of illumination and leaves skin looking like it’s glowing from within.
If you’re looking for a long-wear matte lipstick that will last you all day and isn’t super drying–this is one you want to try. Unlike some other matte lip colors this one conditions your lips with Primer Oil complex and lasts 8 full hours without smudging at all.
Vegan and gluten-free, this is product not only protects against the sun with zinc oxide and aloe vera, it is a great alternative to your everyday foundation.
This all-in-one bronzer highlighter is perfect for giving you that “just came back from vacation” glow. It can also the perfect matte shadow for a perfect contour!
On hot summer days, when our face get a little “glisteny” from sweat this product is one you will want to have in your beauty arsenal. This translucent powder is one that all the Beauty gurus on YouTube rave about. It keeps your makeup from moving on hot summer days, doesn’t flash back when taking pictures in low light settings, and it smells ahhhmazing!
Another great product with SPF! This CC Cream moisturizer, evens and brightens skin tone, minimizes the appearance of pores, reduces dark spots and firms! While it is true that I, personally, live and die by my IT Cosmetics CC cream, I also love this one for a lower-priced drugstore alternative.
This eyeliner is one you can count on lasting on hot summer days! It is not only super pigmented but it never ever smudges and lasts up to 12 hours!
If you’ve ever been concerned about Retinol drying out your skin, this a retinol cream that is super gentle with maximum prescription strength effectiveness and can be used morning and night. It is formulated with organic ingredient that are great for evening skin tone such as: Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Shae Butter and Jojoba Oil and has even been said to help reduce the appearance of acne scaring.
With color correcting swirls, this foundation makes shade matching your skin tone a super easy and provides a light weight, creamy coverage. Baked products are made without additional fillers, so this foundation will give you the full, even coverage you’re seeking while using a lot less product.
This is one product we could all use this summer because not only is it great for anti-aging, it has amazing healing properties and on those days that we may have forgotten to reapply? It will heal that sunburn fast!
If you’re looking to make a statement with your eyes, this eyeshadow is the one! It’s lightweight, water-infused texture allows it to glides on smoothly, without creasing and minimal “glitter fall out”.
This foundation is great for an ultra-lightweight foundation that gives a natural look. Just don’t forget the SPF, because it is not included in this product!
Dull looking skin is THE WORST. The Glow Tonic from PIXI is an exfoliation toner, that firms normal to dry skin by removing dead skin cells. Unlike other toners that dry out your skin, this one hydrates, soothes and awakens your skin with Aloe Vera and Ginseng.
