When I think about summer, I think about being by the water. Depending on where you grew up, waterside could mean summertime at the beach or by the lake. Being from Ohio, we would vacation at the beach, but lived near the lakes so I’m well acquainted with summer beauty routines. When the temperatures are high, my beauty routine is much lighter. Here are a few must-have summer products:
- Sunscreen: Duh. If you’re not wearing sunscreen every day, you’re doing it all wrong. Your skin requires protection every day, but especially if you’re in the sun.
- Moisture: The more I’m in the sun and water, the drier my skin gets. A good moisturizer is key to keeping my skin soft.
- Long-Wear Lip Products: I hate reapplying lipstick or gloss, so a long wearing lip product is a must. This Clinique lipstick wears for up to 8 hours.
- Lashes: Lush lashes are a must if I’m toning down the rest of my makeup. I love bold lashes pumped up with tons of volume because they easily become the focus of your entire makeup look.
For all these beauty products, I like to go to one place that carries all of the products I need, Macy’s. Macy’s has everything I need in one place. Growing up in Ohio, Macy’s was the closest department store and I’m most comfortable shopping there because I know they have exactly what I’m looking for.
Clinique also has two fun makeup sets available for under $20: Clinique Summer in the City Makeup Kit and Clinique Summer at the Beach Makeup Kit. Both sets include these summer must-haves for a complete look: a lip product, mascara and eyeliner.
Thanks to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
