Summertime beauty essentials

Oh, summertime. My favorite time of year, no doubt! I love the sunshine, the warm weather, and being outside and soaking it all in. Playing with the kiddos, laying out by the pool, vacations to the beach, summer sports leagues - whatever your summer activities look like, you'll want to be looking your best. And let's face it, when the summer season is upon is, we all need to make a few changes to our daily beauty routine. The heat and humidity are a lot different than the cold and wind we lived with during the wintertime.

The good news is, changing your beauty routine and finding those few perfect products doesn't have to be complicated or expensive! There are so many affordable, quality brands and products that you can find at your local Walgreens.

Here are a few of my favorite summer beauty products:

First, remember to start with sunscreen! Seriously, one of the most important things you can do for your skin is to use a daily moisturizer with sunscreen. And honestly, summertime is a time to keep things simple. Who wants to go through all the trouble of moisturizers, foundations, AND sunscreens? I say no thank you! Instead, I highly recommend trading all that in for a tinted moisturizer with spf. Swapping three products for one? Yes, please! This is a good one to try:

Now that you've got a good base coat, and are protected from the sun, let's have a little fun! Adding color and a little shimmer is a great touch for your pretty summer face. Bronzers are great for acheiving both, and I love how easy it is to blend in a creamy bronzer. I like this one:
Personally, though, my favorite feature to focus on is eyes. In keeping with the simple theme, all you really need is a swipe or two of mascara to enhance your pretty peepers! And since it's summer, and you may be getting a little sweaty, I'd recommend you opt for a waterproof formula. This has always been a winner for me, as it's great for adding both volume and length:

Lastly, I like a lip product that will add a hint of color and a lot of moisture. Soft lips are a good thing! Made with all natural ingredients and a perfect color for everyone,  I recommend:

So there you have it! A pretty - and protected! - summer face with only 4 products. Easy, affordable, and beautiful!
