As Memorial Day approaches, it is important to have your beauty go-to’s to give you that effortless, sun kissed summer look. Here are five of my summer must-haves, they will withstand even the hottest, sunny days!

Clarins Sunscreen

All year around it is so important to have SPF in your makeup and face lotion. In summer it is crucial to wear sunscreen to help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching your skin. I use Clarins Sunscreen Cream High Protection SPF 30, it helps preserve skin’s health and avoid premature skin aging.

Jouer Lipstick or MAC lipstick

My go-to lip color is Jouer’s Monique, it’s a creamy muted peachy hydrating lipstick. One of my girlfriends started the company and named this classic nude color after me. It makes me feel natural and polished.

MAC’s Viva Glam red lipstick is a matte, deeper, more muted red that instantly updates my look with a pop of color.

Kerastase Lift Vertige

For my hair I use Kerastase Lift Vertige, it provides a unique gel-texture that elevates my roots for the perfect amount of volume and shine.

MoroccanOil Treatment

In the summer your hair gets dry and damaged from the pool and sun.  Moroccan Oil treatment restores my dry hair in the warmer months. I use it as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool, it speeds up drying time and completely transforms and repairs my hair.

Jouer Tinted Moisturizer

To achieve a natural effortless look for the summer, I wear Jouer tinted moisturizer which hydrates my skin and evens out my complexion. The added bonus is that it provides a matte finish so I don’t feel shiny!
