Summer Beauty Essentials

Weirdly enough, summer is one of my favorite times for makeup, even though with the humid weather in DC I constantly have to reapply it.  I just love pulling out my fun makeup for the summer and my summer essentials are the bomb and make my skin, hair and eyes look great - no matter what the DC Summer brings. 

Make Up for Ever Aqua Diamond White Eyeliner - I'm all about white eyeliner in the summer to make your eyes brighter and more awake.  Let me tell you this eyeliner is amazing…like seriously go out and by some right now.  It will stay on your eyes for like ever and you might have to scrub it off the next day, which is pretty much exactly what you want in an eyeliner. 

Kevin Murphy Hair Resort - This hair gel is the best hair gel I have ever used, it gives my stick straight hair that perfect beachy look.  I'm pretty sure that all of my friends who have "borrowed" this from me have run out to the store to buy their own - it's that good.  P.S. sorry that the label is kind of gone on this product in the picture above - I just use it so much!

Laura Mercier Bronzing Gel  - Probably my biggest summer makeup secret, it legit makes my skin look so dewey and so amazing (I'm allowed to be a little complimentary on the wonders of the product, right?).  I swear by this in the summer and get a little sad when I have to put it away in the fall.

    With my skin tone I've never really felt like bronzer was necessary until recently. How wrong was I, it adds such a sun kissed glow to the skin. I'm hooked now on MAC bronzer but will definitely have to give this one a try!
