Hot weather calls for a streamlined approach to makeup and hair. Maximize your summer beauty by minimizing your routine! I love to comb through tons of new products each season to bring you my latest and greatest discoveries. Now that summer is in full swing, I’ve rounded up some of my absolute favorite can’t-leave-home-without-them concealers, tinted moisturizers, accessories, lash boosts and more. Take a peek inside my beach beauty bags before you hit the surf.

I swear by the Josie Maran Argan Concealer Crayon. It’s ultra-hydrating concealer crayon is infused with argan oil that makes blending a cinch. It seamlessly smoothes over blemishes, dark circles, and uneven pigment, with no caking, creasing, pastiness, or fading away. he non-cakey pigment layers for coverage as light or intense as I need it to be, with a chubby, retractable tip that never tugs, just glides like butter and leaves a veil of creamy color that erases boo-boos and matches my skin tone. Whether you color inside or outside the lines, it’s got you covered.

T3 “Whirl Trio” Interchangeable Styling Wand: No matter the season, no matter the destination, no matter the occasion — one of my favorite hairstyles is natural, beach-y looking waves. There’s just something inherently effortless and feminine about a shiny mane of twisting, curling, waving locks that I can’t help but appreciate. HERE are tools needed to get the job done!

Some may say that you’re never fully dressed without a smile, but I’d add that long, beautiful lashes are just as necessary. Rodan + Fields ENCHANCEMENTS Lash Boost has been a game changer for me! I used this everyday for the first month, at night and noticed a huge difference. Consistency is the key, ladies. And of course, you must be patient. My lashes are looking lush and longer already. After removing my lash extensions I thought I would never have that lush lash look again but Rodan + Fields brought them to the next level….and my  lashes are the real deal.

My go-to color as soon as the weather warms up is Essie Tart Deco. It’s for the girl who likes bold spring colors, not pastels. I think is is the perfect pop of color on my toes. This Essie Tart Deco Nail Polish is perfect for fun in the sun.

What daily makeup does Meghan Markle swear by and was front and center at her Wedding? For that flawless, glowing look, the 36-year-old said she’s a fan of Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Primer. It’s what Meghan puts on everyday after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow. It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name … ‘illuminating,'” Markle told Beauty Banter. SOLD.

You guys know I’m always searching for the secret to celebrities’ glowing skin, (just look at how Ah-mazing Julianne Hough looks makeup free!) so I was super curious after hearing about one of Hollywood’s best kept beauty secrets: Dermaplaning. Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon or Carrie Underwood seem to have naturally glowing skin at all times, and now you can too. According to common beauty lore, golden icons like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor were also fans of dermaplaning. Find out about my first time Dermaplaning HERE.
