When I think about summer beauty a few words come to mind – sun-kissed, natural and TONS of SPF. I like to keep make up at a minimum during the summer months to let my skin breathe, but of course never leave home without a few quick swipes of eyeliner, mascara, and a brow touch up. Because once you start paying attention to your brows, it’s really hard to stop – they are the face framers you never knew you had until you start giving them the love they deserve. It’s fun…. and addicting!
I wanted to share a few summer beauty must-haves from QVC that you need to add to your morning routine – plus they are all on major sale and/or offer payment plans so you can pay as little as a few dollars per month for these amazing products.
IT Cosmetics Full-Coverage Oil Free Matte CC Cream with SPF 40
My skin is naturally very shiny (read: oily) so I’ve found that in the summer months I need something to help mattify my skin. The IT Cosmetics Full Coverage Oil Free Matte CC Cream with SPF 40 is the perfect base for my skin. It evens out my complexion, de-shines my t-zone and the only other color I need is a swipe of blush to warm things up a bit.
IT Cosmetics No Tug Anti-Aging Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
You might never use another eyeliner once you start with the IT Cosmetics No Tug Anti-Aging Waterproof Gel Eyeliner. I’ve been using this for years because of that whole “no tug” thing. It goes on like silk and stays in place all day. I also love that it is soft enough to smudge if I want a smokier look. After applying the pencil to my upper lash line, I take my ring finger and lightly blend it. This is also perfect for summer because it is waterproof – great for those super hot/sweaty days.
Givenchy Black Lipstick and Mini Noir Couture Black Satin Mascara Duo
Black lipstick? Summer? What?! I haven’t gone mad – or goth. The Givenchy Black Lipstick is one of those lipsticks that brings out your natural color which happens to be perfect for summer. I have no clue how it works – I’ll chalk it up to magic. Whatever it is, it’s super moisturizing and gives that perfect hint of color for a natural daytime look.
The lipstick also comes with a mini mascara which is great to throw in your bag for those days when you get in your car, look in the rear view mirror and GAHH…. realize you forgot your mascara! For me that’s basically like being half naked 😂.
IT Cosmetics Build-A-Brow 24 Hour Waterproof 5 in 1 Satin Cream Gel Stain w/ Brush
I mentioned before, once you start filling in your brows, it’s hard to stop. Your brows truly are your face framers and a little bit of product can make a huge impact. I love how QVC has little videos to help explain how to use the products. I am not a beauty blogger by any stretch so if my little captions above are not enough, make sure you check out the video for a more in depth look at how to use the IT Cosmetics Build-A-Brow.
Clinique Sun SPF Body and Face Cream
I have officially turned into one of those sunscreen dorks. I sit at baseball games and reapply every time the sun comes out from behind a cloud. My only regret…..that I didn’t do this my entire life!! I keep these little saviors in my bag all summer long. Added bonus is that they are bright yellow and easy to spot amongst all of the other “stuff” in my bag.
