Summer Beauty Must Haves

I feel like singing "the heat is on" with this weather we've been experiencing here in New England and I hope I'm not in the minority when I say this, but sweating is not my favorite thing! I'm also not one to dwell on the weather and sort of have the "it is what it is" mentality so I prepare as best I can! Here are some of my summer beauty must haves for keeping my makeup in place, trying to maintain a healthy glow and keeping cool!  
how to keep makeup on in the summer, drunk elephant serum, evian mist spray, urban decay setting spray, holy grail summer products
  • Evian Mist Spray || I won't go into too much detail on this, but it's my holy grail summer item! I make sure to have one on me at all times and it's perfect when you're feeling seriously hot and need to feel like you walked through a misting fan! I have misted this on my shoulders and chest as well as my face and it's the perfect little spark to keep me cool! I may get some looks while doing it, but jokes on the other people because I'm cool as a cucumber after I get a little mist! I understand this is just water, but there's something about it in mist form that makes it so refreshing! 
  • Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Serum || I watched a few people on YouTube and Instastories rave about this newish Drunk Elephant product and I'm a believer! I have actually been using it every day for a bit of extra glow, but if you're more into fresh face makeup in the summer or looking for a little coverage for the pool / beach then you'll really like this serum. I mix in one pump with my moisturizer for a very natural glow. I've heard it being compared to the By Terry Cellularose Brightening serum for a fraction of the cost! 
  • Aveeno Moisturizer and SPF || This is my current moisturizer that I've been using in place of my primer and what I've been mixing the serum with every morning. It's very light weight, doesn't have much of scent and I like the SPF that is already included. My CC cream that I use every day also has 50 SPF so I definitely feel covered in that department. 
  • Oribe Hair Moisturizer || While this is certainly the priciest item on my list, I don't think my hair has really every been so dry on the ends. I was able to find a smaller travel friendly option for under $20 and with a dime size amount that you would have to use, it would last a while. I put this on pretty much after every hair wash and I've seen a difference in my hair's dryness - in that it's almost completely gone away. I think a few more hair masks and I'll be back to normal! 
  • Urban Decay Setting Spray || I don't think I've used another setting spray as much as this Urban Decay one. I have it in both a travel size and regular size! While I don't use it every day, on really hot days or days when I know I have something after work, I'll spritz some all over to keep everything in place. 

WANT TO TRY 

Supergoop Setting Powder with SPF || I've seen a ton of press on Supergoop recently and have been wanting to try their setting powder with SPF. It's meant to not only be a setting powder, but for keeping the shiny moments throughout the day at bay. I like that you'd be reapplying your SPF without even thinking about it! It also comes in four colors to match your skin color. 

St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Water || One of my favorite YouTubers has raved about this self tanner that supposedly doesn't leave any stains on your clothes immediately after use. It gradually builds from 4-8 hours and leaves you with a very healthy and natural looking glow. I'm pretty much a self tanning novice, but this seems to be fool proof so I can't wait to try it.

  10. The Urban Decay setting spray is a miracle worker and I don't know what I did without it! Especially living in this Alabama humidity! Let me know about the self tanner if you do try it...I use the St Tropez classic right now and I just let it dry for about 15-30 minutes before putting on clothes. I know they say it dries in 60 seconds, but I always want to make sure haha!

  12. These sound like such great products for summer! I've used the Aveeno SPF for years and loved it, it really is a great daytime moisturizer. I've heard such great things about the Evian mist, but never gave it a go because I always felt as though it wasn't a necessity. You know, one of those products that are nice, but don't do much? I guess I'll have to give one of the travel sizes a try the next time I'm at ULTA and see how it works, so many seem to love it. I've also never tried anything from Drunk Elephant before, but I've also heard great things. Thanks for sharing all of these products with us, girl; I'll have to give them a try!

  21. My makeup has been a mess lately! No matter what setting spray or what foundation I use in this weather I've been a oily mess and my makeup has broken down. I might have to go back to my favorite the L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte. I LOVE all UD setting sprays they are the BEST!

  23. I have some of the UD setting spray, but I swear I always forget to put it on. I know that my makeup would look so much better if I'd utilize it more!

  24. I had one of those Evian Mist Sprays several years ago and I love it. I used to keep it beside me when I was laying out in the sun. It comes in handy when you don't have a pool!

  25. I feel your pain with the summer heat and being pregnant! We are melting in FL with 95+ degree weather. Thanks for reminding me about using Evian because I've been overheating getting into my car everyday. Also the UD setting spray sounds like a must. Thanks for sharing! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
