Beauty Guide To The Perfect Summer 2015

Summer is all about effortless looks. Don’t get me wrong, in the winter I am all about crimson lips, leather boots and winged liner so sharp it could cut someone. But in the summer, I want to look like a golden island princess ready to surf into the sunset. Basically, I like looking like I can speak Hawaiian if I wanted to. Pihaʻū oʻu mokukauaheahe i nā puhi (thats “My hovercraft is full of eels” for all you non Hawaiians)

Anyway, here are my absolute favorite products for the summertime that I use daily. Some are brand new and some are things I’ve had a while! Enjoy!summeryo

1. Life’s A Beach (Lush Cosmetics $6.95)

Life’s A Beach is Lush’s newest body scrub. It smells like a Hawaiian cabana on the beach, which is why I love it! If this isn’t beachy enough for you, guess what? It also contains real sand. This is a great exfoliant to play around with this summer, and if you can’t get to a beach, this could surely be a perfect substitute.


2. Boscia Daily Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+++ ($25.00)

I recently went into Sephora to find a good *eghem* the best sunscreen on the market. I legit walked in and was like “yo, what’s the best sunscreen you got”. They led me to this Boscia Sunscreen. It’s amazing because not only is it SPF 50, but it has three pluses, which means it protects you from virtually any light/sun damage. They claimed it even protected me from the UV rays in the store! I figured I would trust it, as many sunscreens only have one plus. Sunscreen is hard to review because you don’t necessarily see results, but I don’t have skin cancer yet so I assume it’s working.


3. Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream ($5.80-8.99)

I’ve been using this BB cream for a while now, and I have to say it works really well. I can’t really vouch for how well the “acne treatment” part of it works, but I haven’t broken out because of it, which is good! It’s got pretty good coverage, so if you don’t have perfect skin but you want to try out BBcream instead of foundation, this is a good place to start.


4. YSL Touche Eclat ($42.00)

The only product I will ever really splurge on is this YSL concealer/brightener pen. I started using it months ago, and have fallen in love. Its a light formula that somehow miraculously brightens your under eyes! I use this by itself without any other makeup and instantly feel great, which is perfect for summer. I recommend testing it out in a beauty store to see if you love it too! summeroo

5. Mac Melba or Mac Peaches ($22.00)

Mac Melba/Peaches are two amazing powder blushes that have lasted me a good lifetime. They’re 100% matte, which is perfect for me because I stay away from shimmery face products. They have a natural color, so if you want a summer cheek that looks dainty and fresh, I would check these out.


6. Nars Juliette ($32.00)

A pretty stupid expensive price, but I love this color. It’s a pinky coral that is hands down my favorite pop to any summer makeup look. I feel very tropical with this on. You could most likely find a cheaper option anywhere you go, though.


7. Benefit They’re Real! ($18.00)

The great thing about this mascara is it’s impeccably waterproof. This stuff will not leave my face in the water. It’s super black and works with one swipe, so if you want those long thick black lashes, They’re Real is for you!


8. Benefit Brow ($18.00)

For those looking for a quick brow fix, this is a gel I would recommend. It’s perfect for after you’ve gone swimming and you want to brush your brows back into place, while also adding thickness and coverage! One swipe should do the trick to making your brows look somewhat on “fleek” again. Forget I said fleek. Oops.


9. Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil ($9.00)

Everyone needs a good heat protector in the summer, and this cute little bottle should do the trick! Work some into your hair after a shower for sun protection!


10. Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray ($24.00)

Finally, my favorite hairspray ever. This stuff smells AMAAAAZING. Let me tell you, I spray more of this on my hair because it just smells so darn good. The smell makes me happy! It actually puts me in a great mood! Crazy, right? It smells like warm vanilla cookies are baking in your hair. It also isn’t crunchy, and allows your hair full movement!  Please do yourself a favor and douse your head in this next time you’re around a bottle.


Here’s my fresh faced summer makeup look! I hope you enjoyed this and got some ideas on what products to check out for the summertime!

xoxo, Eva

    I loved this makeup look and your essentials. Definitely trying some of them out!

  • Skay

    Love all these products,especially the dream pure BB cream!

  • DIYLover24

    I am not a big fan of the palm tree dress but I liked the shaping hair spray, primer, and I am obsessed with brows so I loved the brow gel!!!!! I like the big lash new York brand more than benefits brand though!!! I like bright lips but I can never wear any type of red because it just doesn’t fit!!! I love blusher so I cant argue with that!!! I only like the bb cream concealer and foundation so I am not sure about the concealer you use!! I can really use the acne cleanser because my skin is horrible!!! The sunscreen isn’t what I would use because I use the bb cream face sunscreen and the normal Loreal spray sunscreen for my body that smells amazing!!! I don’t use body scrubs though!!

  • Laura Gaby

  • Diylover24

    I love It all!!!! Well most of it!!!!

  • Diylover24

    So, lets start from the bottom and go to the top!!! First, the palm tree dress is of course a yes!!! But not for me I don’t like dresses! The shaping hair spray could help anyone! So that’s of course a yes! Especially when it is humid outside! I think maybe, about the primer! It might look a little too, shiny on your hair! The Benefit Brow is a yes! Everyone wants their brows to be on fleek! I don’t know about the mascara because, I use the “Big Lash New York” brand! So I suppose it is amazing too! I think that the red lipstick is wonderful on you, but not me! I just cannot rock the red! Never forget, that you can’t ever go wrong with blusher! Anything that is Splurge works! So I would use the concealer any time! Hey, I have acne that is spreading all over my face so…. I will us anything that will help with that! So that is of course a yes! Plus, I love BB Cream anything! As long as that suntan lotion doesn’t get me anymore any more acne, I will use it! I don’t use body scrubs but if I ever do or did than I would use the ” Life’s A Beach ” brand! Thank you so much Eva! xx!!! 🙂 Love Ya! From Me and Everyone Else!

    EVA: PLEASE give me your markkit tumblr cup. I lagit called,
    emailed, and attempted to contact markkit but they wont respond. On
    their website, they have been out of stock for at least months, maybe
    even years. But I loved it SO much, I know you probably won’t ever
    respond to this message, but it doesn’t hurt to try. 🙂
