Looking gorgeous in the heat might seem impossible; besides, who wants to spend tons of time putting on makeup when you could be out enjoying the sunshine? Not us, so we collected our summer beauty essentials for looking glamorous on the go - even if the temperature is topping 100 degrees.
Salt Spray For Beachy Hair
We can't spend every day at the beach, but we can look we do with the right salt spray! This is one of those categories where you don't need to spend a lot to look amazing - we like this Moroccan Sea Salt Spray by OGX, which is only $5.69 at Amazon.
A Good Spray Sunscreen
Speaking of sprays, we're big fans of spray sunscreen. It's easy to put on and dries quickly. And while not exactly beauty-related, it's especially useful for moms who have a hard time getting on sunscreen on their kids - just spray them down and go. Alba Botanica Hawaiian Clear Spray is our go-to, and it's on sale at Amazon for $22.38 for a two pack.
Waterproof - And Pool Proof Mascara
We think that in the summer months, all you need is a swipe of lipstick and you're good to go! But sometimes you want a little extra oomph, and that's where a great waterproof mascara comes in. We like Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft, which is only $5.69 on Amazon.
Getting A (Faux) Summer Glow
While we certainly don't mind being naturally sun-kissed, sometimes you need to fake the glow. And that's where a great bronzer comes in handy! We're fans of Lorac's TANtalizer Baked Bronzer, which have a little bit of shimmer and come in handy $8.00 travel sizes - perfect for vacations!
Your toes are much more likely to be on view in the summer, so make sure your pedicure game is on point! Pretty much anything goes color-wise, but we like a something like slightly unexpected for summer, like icy pastel blue or a rich berry hue, like OPI's Bogota Blackberry, which is $10.50 at Amazon.
A Great Moisturizing Mask
All that fun in the surf and sun can be rough on your skin, so giving it a little extra TLC in the form of a rich moisturizing mask like this Majestic Pure 24k Gold Facial Mask ($17.95 on Amazon) is extra important in the warmer months.
