You guys know how much I love the beauty department. I’m always browsing the latest selections at Nordstrom and Sephora–my two favorite shops for getting the best products. And in case you missed it, Sephora’s running their yearly Spring Bonus Sale. You can get 10%-15% off depending on your membership. Since we’re talking about premium beauty brands that never go on sale, this is the perfect time to grab those goodies you’ve been eyeing. Besides, hot, sweltering weather is creeping on us so it’s time to start thinking about heat-proof beauty products that will last you all summer long. I’ve discovered so many new favorites lately, and I wanted to help you guys pick out what’s worth buying by sharing my summer beauty essentials below.

I featured this foundation in my top picks for 2018 to try and it remains a summer beauty essential because it’s so natural and wears nicely even in the dreary heat. The texture and finish is flawless to work with and it blends so fast and easy into the skin. I love that my skin looks enhanced and not heavy or cakey, making it a perfect choice for summer.
I’m featuring lots of Dior products today because it’s a brand that I have been using again and again. First up is this serum which makes my skin look so healthy and hydrated. You can use it alone or add a drop to your moisturizer for an added glow. This product is essential on days I plan to be out all night or when I’m just working long hours. It gives me a nice boost of radiance.
I’m also obsessed with this lifting serum from Dior, which targets elasticity and tone, two features that are extremely important to me now. I got a sample and have already started to notice firmer, softer skin in the time that I have used it. If you’re looking to start an anti-aging regimen this summer, you should incorporate this product.
I love this range of moisturizers from Dior because you can get it in three different textures such as light, universal, or rich. Since it’s summer and I’m in LA, I def trade my heavier creams for lighter ones. I love the light version of the Multi-Perfection Cream because it plumps up and smooths out my skin.
This was another product I mentioned previously but seeing that it’s in constant rotation, I had to encourage you guys to buy it during the Sephora Spring Sale. The highly pigmented formula will give you that luminous summer complexion you’ve always dreamt of.
This product is so amazing that it’s already sold out; however, it’s a great opportunity to try the travel size version which is still available. It comes out green in the jar but blends into your skin and enhances your complexion. The SPF inclusion makes it a great choice for everyday when you don’t need a lot of coverage.
Summer is a great time to bring out warmer hues on the eyes. This Soft Glam eyeshadow palette is great because of the luxurious packaging and beautiful mix of colors that would be great for creating looks that mimic the vivid sunset. The creamy powder and deep pigmentation are so wonderful to work with!
Although we’re no longer dealing with dry winter skin, summer isn’t a time to ignore your body. Take advantage of the sale and indulge in a luxurious body cream like this Jo Malone one. Not only does it smell incredible, but it’s so rich and helps my skin stay moisturized.
