Summer Beauty Picks: 9 Products I Can't Stop Using

Hello SB Darlings! I’ll say the most frequent question other than skincare I get is about which beauty products I use regularly. I certainly have some staple products I’ve used for years that are always in my vanity rotation, however, every season I do tend to change up my makeup since I do get about 2-3 shades darker in the summer months. I’m extremely picky about what I put on my face. So, here are the products I am loving right now! You can simply click on each picture to purchase any of these items, if you’ll like.


NARS Summer Lights Face Palette

Ok, we all know ALL THINGS NARS is everything you need for summer. However, this particular palette is fantastic. It’s a limited edition of 4 eyeshadows, a bronzer and a highlighter. It’s perfect to toss in your bag for any occasions this summer. The colors go on easily and it’s perfect to blend even for the majority of us who aren’t the best with makeup. If you want the perfect bronzy and radiance glow, this palette is it. Worth Every penny. 

price: $68

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Concealer

- This is the perfect concealer if you suffer from dark circles but don’t want that heavy/cakey concealer look. It’s super light yet incredibly formulated and looks natural. Good news? It comes in a full range. 

price: $28

BECCA Pressed Highlighter

If you are looking for that Instagram trend blinding glow… this is the product for you! It’s called a cult classic for good reasons. I personally use this product with a slightly wet brush for that stunning glow. To be honest, I truly believe only Becca Highlighters look good on dark-skin girls for a daily look. A tiny bit goes a long way. It’s also excellent as an eyeshadow.

price: $38  

TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

Ugh! I can’t stop telling everyone about this particular mist. I call it a “f- boy free glow in a bottle." Another, cult favorite. This is the perfect Mist/setting spray for summer especially if you have dry skin. It’s perfect even if you have absolutely no makeup on to give you that refreshed look. You can get the travel size for only 15 bucks on the Tatcha website. 

price: $48

LANCÕME Long Time No Shine Setting Powder

- $37.00 - After purposefully creating shine for that perfect glow, this powder is perfect help control that shine. It’s a NO-SHINE formula. I usually stay away from powders because they usually settle into my fine lines, however this one doesn't. It creates such a perfect smooth and natural finish. Such an investment! 

price: $37

TOM FORD Ultra Shine Lip Gloss

This Here!!! OMG! Heaven! Well, we all know Mr. Ford never disappoints. I have this lip gloss in naked and it is fabulous. It is the perfect amount of shine and color for my highly pigmented lips. Most lipgloss although shiny makes my lips feel dry. This gloss makes my lips feel hydrated. If you are looking for the nice pouty look all summer ’19, this the best lipgloss for you ladies. 

price: $48

BOSCIA Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30

- This BB cream is good for soft light coverage for everyday makeup. My only concern are the shades are VERY limited. Neither of the dark shades matches my undertone. More shade range is certainly a MUST! However, overall the quality is good and very wearable. I do have oily/combination skin, so for anyone with oily skin, you will need a good setting powder. It also comes with SPF which is makes things much easier. 

price: $38

TARTE Clay Matte Bronzer

I just jumped on the bronzer hype and I am loving it. Especially for daily makeup, I use a bronzer instead of contour. I only have to put on a small amount and it looks very natural. It smells great, goes on smoothly, and is easily buildable! It really is a fantastic product that's worth the money. 

price: $30

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette

This was my first purchase of Marc Jacob eyeshadows and now I am hooked! All of the shades are super pigmented, sultry and creamy, Pictures online DOES NOT do this palette justice, you have to see and touch it to understand why this is a cult product. 

price: $49.50

There you have it! These are the beauty products that are SB approved and you’ll need to survive summer ’19. Which are your favorites this season? Definitely tell me on IG and I’ll be glad to read! Love you all :)
