Happy Tuesday, friends! Today, I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and talking a little summer beauty!
Back on April 1st, I share my favorite spring beauty finds and today, I’m repeating many of them (because they’re always fabulous and work well with warmer weather!)…but in an even more paired down way because I don’t know about you, but here where I live, the weather gets W-A-R-M and the last thing I want is heavy skincare, body products, fragrances and makeup. No. Thank. You.
First up, I’ve told you so many times about how much I love Kopari’s Coconut Melt for everything from a body moisturizer, hair mask, sunburn remedy and pre-swim hair treatment. If I were on a deserted island and could only bring one beauty product, I would bring this. Read that again…I would bring THIS. Needless to say, I was super pumped to see this set at Nordstrom…
…it’s not one but TWO of their coconut melts in one set and one of them has a delicious tropical scent! Yes, yes, YES! Both jars are small enough that they’ll be great to throw in my pool bag or travel bag, but at the same time, I thought it was a lot of melt for a little price. I’m super excited about this set!
Coconut Melt pairs perfectly with this tried and true summer fave of mine…
With my kids home from school starting next week, I’m going to be toggling back and forth between work, play and running errands…plus TRAVELING! Over the last two weeks, I’ve been wearing my 5 Minute Summer Makeup every single day because I like to feel put together after my shower, but I don’t want to spend a minute longer than necessary getting myself together. AND I DON’T WANT THICK, STICKY, HEAVY PRODUCTS.
Here’s my current routine (many faves you’ll recognize!)…
Let me break it down for you…
#1: Supergoop! Glowscreen Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 • Supergoop!
The only sunscreen I wear on my face! I wear it every single day whether I have on makeup or not. It works as a GREAT primer for makeup too! You can also buy it in a “non-glow” version if you prefer.
#2: CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+ Full Coverage Cream Corrector & Serum • It Cosmetics
You ladies told me to try It Cosmetics CC creams, and I have loved this one here! My version is not currently in stock but this Illumination version is for the same type of finish.
#3: Summer Unrated Eyeshadow Palette • NARS
Well, I bought this one and shared it in my Spring Beauty post! I wear it every single day! The colors are easy enough that sometimes, I get lazy and just blend them with my fingertips.
#4: Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow • Charlotte Tilbury
I bought this in the champagne color (but it comes in many others!). This is a great primer for your lids. Apply it before your eyeshadows for extra staying power.
#6: Matte Revolution Lipstick • Charlotte Tilbury
These lipsticks just stay put all day! They come in a variety of colors from nudes to bolds. I have been wearing Lost Cherry lately.
#7: Skin Corrector Stick • Bobbi Brown
Covers, corrects, complements the CC cream…wins for me!
#8: Brow Lift Refillable Eyebrow Pencil • Charlotte Tilbury
I always buy this in blonde! This is really easy to apply and stays put all day.
#9: Lip Cheat Lip Liner • Charlotte Tilbury
I keep this liner in Pink Venus in my purse at all times. Sometimes, I’ll use another liner, but this one here, I’ve purchased probably 10 times over the years. It’s the perfect slightly pinky lip liner to complement all of your other glosses and lipsticks.
#10: Long-Wear Waterproof Eyeliner • Bobbi Brown
Yessssssssss! Stays put all day yet comes off at night with my face wash. I have more below about this and…
#11: Lash Idôle Waterproof Mascara • Lancôme
…this magic right here 🙂 .
This trio here…
…was all I wore in Mexico! I didn’t want to apply makeup when we were at the pool, but I also didn’t want to go completely bare. A little SPF, some waterproof liner and waterproof mascara was all I needed…
Ready for the day!
Just add three great poolside/beachside/summer side products!
Nordstrom has always been my go-to for my family’s summer needs! From beauty to shoes, athletic wear, vacation wear, loungewear and every “wear” in between, it’s without a doubt, my favorite retailer. More than anything though, I love that they have impeccable service, free shipping, free returns and curbside pick up (all so handy for a busy mom during the summertime!). You can catch all of their services (including alterations, gift wrapping, style help and more HERE!).
Friends, I’m off for my last “normal” day until school starts again in the fall. AGH! After this afternoon, it will be slight chaos and madness every day…but I plan on soaking it up as much as I can. The years are short…and the summers are even shorter. Happy Tuesday to all of you!
