Posted on August 09 2021
Are you ready? It's time for the biggest post of the season: the 2021 Summer Beauty Crush is finally here! We're giving you the inside scoop on just what's inside our beauty bag...plus a few bonus style tips just for fun! Around here, we don't keep skincare secrets -- so when we find that perfect something-something that works wonders on our skin, we don't hesitate to tell-all. Today on Zeena Uncovered, we're sharing our beach bag favorites, packable essentials and everything you need to get your glow on all summer long. So whether you're beating the heat at home or planning a sunny getaway, this is the list for you!
Uplift Your Skin
1 - Did you know your hands need sunscreen too? Supergoop Mini Handscreen SPF40 is a luxurious skin-saver that combines nourishing antioxidants, argan oil and fruit extracts in a cute travel size bottle. Don't leave home without it!
2 - For a sun-kissed, healthy glow, Amany recommends the Milk Makeup Mini Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Stick. Apply lightly and gently dab with a beauty blender for rosy, airbrushed softness.
3 - It's true, the perfect lip gloss does exist. Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss provides a juicy sheen with zero 'sticky factor'. Shea butter and avacado oil combine to hydrate, plump and protect your lips (even behind that face mask!)
4 - We can't stop talking about these Face Scrubbies from Amazon that fit in the palm of your hand. This brilliant little wonder tool attacks dirt and build-up like no tomorrow. Made from flexible silicone, you can treat your skin to a facial every single day. Pair it with the foaming citrus sensation of Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash and you've got yourself a one way ticket to silky smooth skin.
5 - Refresh your senses wherever you go with purse-sized perfumes and leave the bulky bottles at home. No matter your scent of preference, pack light with travel-size sprays or rollerballs (Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf smells like heaven!)
Get Packing in Style
6 - When we designed the Classic Active Top, we had one thing in mind -- relaxation. From the loose & modest fit to the way this top literally goes with everything, this little gem will make your vacay wardrobe that much easier.
7 - One of Bayan's personal picks, meet the hat that bounces back! Pop the Wesley Packable Straw Fedora in your tote bag and you'll be fashionably chic in no time. Available in three gorgeous neutrals, we love how effortless it is to elevate your look with this summer staple.
8 - Summer in four words: Oversized Mirror Aviator Sunglasses. Stay on trend and looking cute all at the same time, and for only $15, you can't pass up these shades.
9 & 10 - Anklets are back and we are here for it! Pair this gold tone Circle Charm Ankletfrom BR with these low top PUMA Carina Sneakers and you'll be posing for the 'gram before you know it!
Of course, it wouldn't be summer without chiffon hijabs ~ and boy, do we have got the line-up for you! Prints, petites, solids and color blocks...all at your fingertips.
More Beauty Basics
11 - Tame those wild brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Clear Brow Gel. Note to self: this micro magic wand doubles as mascara for the minimalists out there.
12 - Bring the spa to you with a Jade Roller. Refrigerate overnight for a cooling sensation as you apply your moisturizer in the morning, or use as a facial massager before you tuck yourself in at night.
13 - Stay fresh and fearless with Kosas Chemistry Deodorant. This breakthrough AHA serum is loaded with enough aloe vera to fight BO and soothe the most sensitive skin.
14 - We love how the Mini Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo keeps our locks oil-free and refreshed. No matter your hair type, from bone straight to super curly, simply spray on your hair between washes to absorb sweat and neutralize odors all day.
15 - There's nothing quite like thick, fluffy lashes, which is why we love The Big Clean Mascara by Kosas. Fake the look of falsies with just one swipe.
