How can you look cute 24/7, despite all the heat and humidity? Just throw these 11 beauty essentials in your bag:
11. Light-Weight Cover-Up
Cover up any imperfections while still allowing your skin to breathe.
10. Coral Nail Polish
Coral shades are great during the summer months because they’re ultra feminine and still pop in the sunlight.
9. Lip Balm
Coat your kisser with a lip balm that includes sun protection to keep your lips soft and healthy. If you wanna add some color, just apply your favorite lipstick on top of the balm.
8. Essential Oils
A daily spray of essential oils can do wonders for heat-ravaged hair. Spray from the roots to the tips to add moisture after a long day in the sun.
7. A Fierce Hat
Rock a floppy sun hat or a Rihanna-esque baseball cap to protect your face from harsh rays.
6. Waterproof Mascara
Whether you’re swimming at the beach or sweatin’ it out around town with your girls, waterproof mascara is an easy way to look fly all day.
5. Liquid Highlighter
Get a natural-looking glow by mixing a bit of liquid highlighter in with your foundation.
4. A Soothing Moisturizer
A moisturizer with soothing ingredients like shea butter or aloe vera will ease sunburns and other skin irritations, all while keeping your skin moisturized.
3. A Signature Scent
Fruity, floral, and citrus scents are all great for warm weather. Find a favorite and make it your own.
2. Cleansing Towelettes
These are great for fixing running makeup or cleaning up quickly after a dip in the pool.
