Warm weather and sexy styles are here. While you're stocking your closet with cute clothing essentials for those summer days, don't forget to upgrade your makeup bag. Sweetest Stitch model Shasta Dooms has put together her favorite beauty upgrades for the coming months. You'll want to make sure you take notes from this talented make-up artist. She's all about investing in essentials and keeping your makeup minimal.
Many women say the one makeup item they can't live without is mascara. What happens when it disappears during the day? From sweat to the pool, your mascara will be put to the test this summer. Shasta suggests investing in a waterproof version to last all day. She loves Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof.
Regular foundation is like the sweater of skincare. You just don't want to wear it when it's warm outside and it never looks as good. CC Cream is a great alternative. Look for one with SPF 50+. Shasta says Your Skin But Better CC Cream is perfect for the summer and it won't give you flash back in those important pictures. Did someone say wedding season?!
Bright Pop of Color For your Lips
Tis the season to be bright! Invest in a few hot colors to go with your summer dresses and bikinis. If you're headed to a long wedding or on a trip to your favorite winery, you'll want to make sure you've got a color that stays. The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lip Color truly does last all day, says Shasta. Invest in a few colors to make sure you're ready for any #ootd.
A Bit of Blush
if you're rocking a natural tan from frequent days in the sun, add a little feminine color to the apples of your cheeks to always look fresh. Paired with a pop of color on the lips, you'll be cute as any flower in your garden. Using a mineral blush will keep your makeup look light and cake-free. Try Becca Mineral Blush in Flower Child, which Shasta says will look good on light and dark skin tones. Bonus: this blush is infused with antioxidant vitamins A, E, and C.
A Bit of a Spritz
Sometimes you need more than an ice cold tea to cool off. A facial mist is just the thing to bring yourself back to life in any sweaty situation. Look for mists that have simple ingredients including herbal extracts and rosewater for a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated skin. This Mario Badescu spray is a perfect option for only $7!
