The Hampton's has definitely been the go to weekend getaway destination for my family this year. Spending so much time outside this summer celebrating with friends and family I have focused on finding beauty products that are hydrating, long lasting and waterproof.
As I pack for this weekend's trip I wanted to share with you my 'less is more' top 5 beauty essentials. These beauty products not only give me that natural summer poolside glow but they have proven to stay put throughout the day.
I start with the Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Moisturizer. It is lightweight and oil-free which is a must for me in the summer humidity. It is super hydrating, has broad spectrum SPF 50+ and of course the anti-aging properties are a bonus.
Once my moisturizer sets I use the Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact. It is a liquid foundation for sheer to moderate coverage that brightens your skin. It is weightless and when I apply it there is a cooling sensation on my skin which I enjoy. I don't put it all over, I dab and blend sparingly and it leaves me with a fresh an dewy finish that allows my skin to breathe.
I top my lids off with this magical Tom Ford Cream & Powder Eye Color in the Naked Bronze. It makes me so happy, I love that it is two tiered so I can get a range of use out of it day to night. There is an ultra-pigmented metallic cream shadow that is super soothing when I glide it on the lids, it gives a gorgeous golden glow. The other part is a sparkling powder that intensifies the gold with a beautiful and bright shimmer. I stick with the metallic cream during the day since it reflects the sun perfectly and I add the sparkling shimmer when the sun sets.
A waterproof mascara is a necessity between being beach side + pool side throughout the day. Smudge proof mascara will help you avoid that mid day raccoon eye and I personally love the Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Waterproof Mascara. The brush is completely unique and has a "S" shape that really separates that lashes for that perfect silhouette.
I finish my look off with the Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo in the Pink\Brown color from Sephora. The rich metallic matte shade in pink plays so well with the metallic gold eye shadow cream. There is a matching glitter gloss that adds so much shine to my lips on the other end, I save that for sunset when I convert my look to night time. Super convenient!
There you have it. My top 5 Beauty Essentials for the perfect summer poolside glow. I hope you enjoy my finds. Leave me comments below if you get any of these so I know how they work for you!
