Sharing a look at some summer beauty darlings for a bright and easy beauty look. If you’re looking for some no-fuss beauty staples to add to your summer routine, I’ve rounded up a few recent favorites from Nordstrom.
Westman Atelier has some of the best quick and easy beauty products for an effortless look. I love the Vital Skin Stick Foundation ($68) for a summer base. Has a natural buildable coverage, blends easily (I use a beauty blender) and stays on the skin. I love the twisted format for easy application and it’s also perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. I use Shade VI and it’s a perfect match.
Westman Atelier’s latest release is the Vital pressed powder for skin care ($75). Based on their shade chart, I ordered Crème, which looks pale on the compact, but works for my skin tone! It is a pure ultralight pressed powder. It is a nice natural powder that fixes creams, softens the skin and looks very natural. I still prefer the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder for more coverage/blur but this new one from Westman Atelier is very good. i splurged on it powder brush ($85) and it’s a nicer little brush that has a very soft plush feel.
I am delighted that Chanel has added new shades of bronzer this season. I love the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Tanning Cream ($50). I have been using Shade 390 for a long time and I am delighted to see that they added a new Shade 392 for medium tan skin tones. I hope they continue to expand the range of colors. This offers a nice warm glow to the skin.
For a natural glow on the cheeks I have loved several things. the Westman Atelier Supercharged Dye in Peau de Peche ($75) remains one of my favorite unique cream highlighters. On my medium tan skin it is a champagne peach with a shimmer. On lighter skin tones, it will appear more tan/tanned. I also think he Baby Cheek Blush Sticks ($48) they are beautiful! Chouchette is the best natural peach pink on my skin tone.
Other favorite shimmer/highlighter blushes in rotation include the By Terry Brightening CC Liquid Blush in Sunny Glow ($38 each, for the most natural glow) and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blushes ($28 each, I love Coastline and Corsica for warmer tones). the Charlotte Tilbury’s Glow Wand in Peachgasm ($40) is another favorite for a pretty sparkly highlight.
summer eye makeup
I love the unique and made kind of glitters for the eyes. the Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Cream Shadow Stick ($30 each) have had a heavy turnover. I love the mix of Moonstone, Golden Amber, and Espresso for my summer bronzed eye look. the Sisley Ombre Eclat Liquide Eyeshadow ($58) They also have a really nice long-wear formula. I have tried all the colors here but my favorites are 1, 3, 4 and 5. They are expensive but if you are looking for something ultra durable these are the best I have tried.
I am a lover of neutral lips for life! the MAC Lustreglass lipsticks ($22 each) are really good. I’m using Sellout in this post, but there are so many great shades to choose from (from neutral to bold). To hydrate, give shine and color to the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Glitters ($29 each) are my choice. Long time readers have seen these on the blog many times, but I keep coming back to these. My favorite neutrals are In the Buff and Free Spirit. They added bright hues this season and I think Bare Sparkle and Bellini are really fun.
For those who love the beauty of Tom Ford, you may want to see the matte lip color ($58) options if you want some full coverage and longer wear. I recently picked up Fascinating which is a neutral peachy pink (on my lips/complexion it looks more peachy). It’s a very nice neutral.
I have a summer accessory roundup coming soon! But I’ve really been loving this woven bag for summer. It was one of my biggest splurges recently, but I love it. For the styling details in this post, I’m wearing a knit tank. top shop. I’ve been on a kick with celine sunglasses and this pair is a favorite!
That wraps up my favorites from Nordstrom’s Easy Summer Glow! I hope you found some helpful ideas on how to add some sparkle and shine to your summer beauty look!
