Summer Beauty Crush
Posted on 25 July 2018
Melting in the summer heat? We love a poolside BBQ or a day at the beach -- sometimes in the same day! But when the quest for the perfect sun-kissed tan turns into a red-hot nightmare, we like to switch up our beauty routine and defend our skin from the triple threat of UV rays, intense heat and lack of moisture. Today on Zeena Uncovered, get ready to soak up the sun (the safe way) with our tried + true summer beauty essentials.
Here's the rundown of our top Summer Beauty Picks:
1. A beach bag essential, Banana Boat Deep Tanning Oil offers water-resistance and SPF 15 protection that gives your skin a natural bronze glow.
2. FENTY Beauty Glass Bomb Lip Luminizer is the perfect upgrade to your standard lip gloss. We love it in Rose Nude for an everyday look that lasts all day.
3. Pacifica Pineapple Flower Mineral Body Butter leaves no cakey residue and smells like a Hawaiian vacation: pineapples, coconuts and exotic flowers. If you're a constant victim of sunburn around the nose and eyes (like me), this vegan formula is super powerful at SPF 50. Plus, it's chemical and cruelty-free -- something you can feel good about.
4. A personal Zeena favorite, Amari NYC Halal Nail Polish in Desert Nude is summer in a bottle. Boost your mani-pedi game with this subtle-yet-feminine neutral.
5. Good things come in small packages. Neutrogena Beach Defense is my go-to for fast application for you or your little ones. The sunscreen stick is SPF 50 and goes on clear. Perfect for in and out of the water, Beach Defense lasts about 80 minutes and you'll fall in love with the deliciously-wonderful pina colada scent!
6. A new found love, Veil Translucent Setting Powder has reflective particles that give your skin that fresh from the beach glow.
7. Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Foundation + SPF. Lightweight and natural looking, the incredible skin tone matching formula goes on white and transforms to your perfect shade.
8. The ultimate bronzer. Wear it alone or over your makeup, Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer delivers Brazilian-inspired illumination that's safe enough to use every day.
