It’s finally here and I don’t know about you, but I plan on going to plenty of BBQ’s and other outdoor events, along with getting so much needed beach time. So it’s time to get my calendar and my beauty bag ready!
While I normally focus on the practical when it comes to these types of posts, this summer for me is all about fun. Fun with my daughter, fun with my family, and fun with my makeup! This season is all about letting our hair down, kicking back, and throwing caution to the wind. Bust out the colors, let your hair do its thing, and let’s have some summer fun with these six fierce beauty picks.
1. Teal Eyeliner
I know, black liner is a staple but if you’re looking for an easy way to take your beauty look to the tropical side of life, teal liner is the way to go. You can rock it alone for a pop of color, or bring your eye makeup up a notch by lining your lower lash line. Extra beauty points if it’s waterproof.

2. Pink Lipstick
Remember my pink party from Monday? I’m telling you it’s become a definite beauty must have for summer. It’s such a fun and flirty color that can easily go from day to night. Just make sure to exfoliate those lips on a regular basis and back up that lipstick with a matching liner.

3. Moisturizing Conditioner
Between the salt water, chlorine, and the sun our hair can take a real beating. Damaged hair equals dull and frizzy strands and that’s so not cute. Making sure you get a good conditioning treatment once a week can keep that hair healthy and restore the moisture you lost. Whether it’s a deep conditioning session once a week or washing your hair with a moisturizing one every other day, it’s a simple step to keeping that hair looking gorgeous.

4. Cream Concealer
Lack of sleep, too much wine – whatever the reason for those dark circles the last thing we want to do is look like we partied hard the night before. Cream concealer covers those bad boys up, the cream formula able to take the heat. It also doubles as a primer.

5. Hair Gel
If your summer schedule is jam packed and there’s no time to refresh your hair let alone wash it, hair gel is your best friend. Spritz your hair with water, apply some hair gel, and slick that hair up into a cute pony tail. No matter your hair type, you can have put together hair in minutes.

6. Coral Nail Polish
When the summer hits, I have to keep my pedicure game on point and one of my favorite summer time shades is coral. It’s bright and fun and compliments your skin not matter what shade it is. I’m rocking this polish on my toes as we speak!
