Fashion Round Up: Summer Makeup Essentials

Warm weather, humid afternoons, and sunny days are finally here. As you break out the white pants, flowy tops and fun sandals - think about how you are changing and updating your makeup for summer as well. Below are my 10 summer makeup essentials to help you look professional and chic as you walk through the humid city to work every morning. Pack these in your work tote for touch ups, or keep them in your desk to stay looking fresh throughout the day.

1. Caudalie Grape Water Mist

Grape Water - Caudalie

Freshen your face during a hot humid day with this 100% grape water toner from Caudalie. This mist soothes, refreshes and hydrates the skin with plant based water extracted from grapes.

2. Hourglass Ambient Bronzer

Hourglass Ambient Bronzer

This pearly bronzer will give you a light summer glow. Keep eye makeup simple in the summer, and add warmth with this soft bronzer from Hourglass. The mix of shades in the palette keeps the bronzer looking subtle and natural.

3. Mattifying Oil Blotting Papers

Sephora Mattifying Blotting Films


Keep your face dry and clean with these blotter papers from Sephora. Perfect to toss in your tote bag and touch up anytime. These blotting sheets are infused with skin smoothing ingredients to keep your face feeling amazing.

4. Hourglass Ambient Light Palette

Ambient Lighting Palette - Hourglass

This collection of finishing powders will keep your skin light and bright this summer. Cloak imperfections, filter harsh light and make skin appear soft and lit from within using these three carefully chosen neutral shades.

5. Waterproof Mascara

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara

This waterproof mascara gives your eyes definition without smudging in the humid summer weather. I love bareMinerals formula because it is free of parabens, sulfates or synthetic dyes so you can feel good about the product.

6. Boscia BB Cream

B.B. Cream Borad Spectrum SPF

Summer is a great time to trade in the heavy foundation and powder for a lighter tinted BB Cream. There is nothing worse than caking on makeup in hot weather that ends up looking awful after 10 minutes in the humidity. This BB cream covers flaws and has SPF to protect from the sun.

7. Clear Brow Gel

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

Keep your brows in place during hot humid weather with a clear brow gel. This long wearing gel will define your brows and makes a big difference, while still keeping a natural look.

8. Butter London Nail Polish - Jolly Good

Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer

Nothing says summer quite like a fun summer nail polish color. This light coral color is subtle enough to still be professional, while embracing fun summer hues. If you like to wear a more neutral color to the office, save this one for the weekend or your next vacation.

9. Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

Shiseido Broad Spectrum SPF

The most important thing to remember to wear in the summer is...you guessed it - sunscreen. Protect your skin with this incredible oil free uv protector broad spectrum sunscreen. This sunscreen gives you a pore free and shine free finish, that is perfect for the office.

10. NARS Limited Edition Lip Gloss

Christopher Kane for NARS Lip Gloss

This new NARS lip gloss by Christopher Kane has the ultimate long-lasting shine for summer. Available in 4 summery hues, this gloss is light and shiny for warm months, and keeps your lips moisturized and soft.
