Re: Summer essentials!

I don't really have a typical summer where I live, but these are my essentials any time I'm in or near the sun:


1. Sunscreen, always: I use La Roche Posay Anthelios Fluide Extrème 50+/PPD 38 for face and Neutrogena spray on my body if it's exposed, but most of the time I stay covered unless I'm in a pool);

2. A large hat Smiley Happy and a cover up of some sort (a tunic or an oversized, lightweight oxford shirt);

3. A good eyeliner that doesn't tend to melt or smear (I like UD 24/7 eyeliners);

4. A long-wearing blush (I like Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush -- my favorites are Natural Beauty and Flush (...and Dollface...and Tickled));

5. A mattifying powder (I like NARS Pressed Powder or the newer Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder); and

5. Moisturizing lip balm (my favorite is Labello / Nivea -- for the summer, I like the flavored versions that leave a slight tint, like Cherry or Grape).
