Beauty and the Beach

8 Jul

Even if you’re not heading to the beach, these perfect picks for summer are sure to become your year round favorites!

I love this! Makes hair super shiny and if I want to go without conditioner, I can! Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo, $3, Target.

There's really more to this than the packaging. It's an amazing balm that can be layered with bronzer without a big mess. A great alternative to greasy body oils. Bathina Body So Fine by Benefit, $26, Sephora.

I wear this every time I want to get some color. I think sometimes I just wear it because of the smell! Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Sunscreen Lotion, $7, Wal-Mart.

This is a multi-functional product. Sometimes I just use the peach part as blush. Cargo Suedeblush in Gold Coast, $24, cargocosmetics.com

They seem overindulgent but Prada cosmetic bags are indestructable. I always seem to have blush explosions in my bag or a lipgloss leak. The bags are easy to clean and can also be used as a clutch. Prada cosmetic bag, $180, Prada boutiques.

Good tweezers are essential, no matter what time of year it is. Tweezerman Slant Tweezers, $20, tweezerman.com

A pink that is a sophisticated alternative to the other frosty baby pinks on the market. OPI Nail Laquer in Samoan Sand, $7, Target.

Summer doesn't have to be all about mangoes and oranges. This is not heady but still sexy. Bath and Body Works Black Amethyst Body Lotion, $10.50, Bath and Body Works.
