My Summer Beauty Bag

What does summer mean for my beauty routine? Living in Florida, my summer makeup looks have to account for three main things: sunshine, humidity, and higher temperatures.

I stick with lightweight, non-irritating products that hydrate and protect my skin, especially from the sun. Here, I’m sharing my best summer makeup recommendations, the beauty products that I’ll be keeping at hand through the warmer months.

At least for my skin, the best eye creams are lighter weight, typically with some kind of brightening agent in it, like caffeine. I’ve narrowed down the best eye creams to three that I use regularly. See what made the list here!
