Hey Ya’ll!! Summer is here and it’s HOT. So we decided to share our “Summer Essentials”
Protect. Set. Proof. Shine. Glow. Chic.
Yes we are melaninated but that doesn’t mean that we should’t wear sunscreen. Our favorite sunscreen is from Tree Hut; Daily Defense SPF 20. We have used this for years and it just the best. It’s moisturizing and is perfect for the summer.
The setting/finishing powder we use is the NYX “Set It and Don’t Fret It”. It helps with shine and transfer of makeup. I (Erica) use a powder foundation and it works well to keep it in place.
Ahhh-Maaa-Zing!!! Elf’s Waterproof Lengthening Mascara is the truth and it’s only $3 dollars.
Majority of the time we wear matte lipsticks but sometime during the summer we want a bit of shine. L.A. Colors High Shine Gloss is pretty awesome. It’s not sticky and it stays on.
We love the Profusion Highlight Palette! It has six different highlight colors to choose from. If we want to shine bright or have a lil glow this palette has it. Check out there website, they have some awesome things. Cruelty free and affordable.
We usually get our sunglasses from Five Below or the local beauty supply. We’re not particular but we make sure that they have UVA and UVB protection.
