This summer I have been trying out a few new products and trying to find the best makeup for just a light, sunkissed look. I have fallen in love with a few products, so I wanted to share them with you! Here are my 5 summer beauty must haves, and they are all drugstore.

ELF- Tone Correcting Powder
This product I swiped from my mom, and I have been loving it! I dab a little bit of the yellow around my nose where it gets red (thanks allergies!) and then put my foundation on over. I love that it is so easy to apply and corrects all the tones on my face.
Covergirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation
This and my MAC foundation are my absolute favorites. I have been using this one lately, because my MAC one is pretty pricey and since its summer I will sweat it all off haha. I love this foundation because it is so light but provides full coverage. I look like I have a full heavy foundation on, but I don't sweat it off or feel cakey.
ELF Blush and Contour Kit
I love that this blush goes in so shear and has a peach color pay off. I love that its subtle but has that extra shimmer, because it gives me more of a glow; which is perfect for summer time! The contour is a great shade to and is a lot more opaque. I suggest you use a light hand because a little goes a long way.
L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
For the longest time, I only used Maybelline Rocket Mascara. I decided to venture out and try this one, and I love it! I sometimes combine the two, but I love that the L'Oreal mascara doesn't get clumpy or spider-like, no matter how many times I go over and add coats. i plan on doing a tutorial on how I do my eyelashes, so stay tuned!
Rimmel London Stay Glossy Lip Gloss
I'm usually a red lipstick kind of gal, but on occasion I get a pink gloss/lipstick kick! I have had this Rimmel London gloss for awhile now, and its easily one of my favorite lip glosses! The color is so vibrant, but isn't too overpowering on. It doesn't last very long as a gloss, but it does stay on pretty consistently (no weird patches like some glosses). I love the watermelon pink of this shade and highly suggest it! This color is called Fuchsia Fever.
What are your summer beauty favorites? I'd love to know down below. I hope you all are having a great summer so far ☼
