Simple Summer Essentials

Today I wanted to talk about staples in my summer routine. I like to keep it on the simpler side in the summer, because it’s too damn hot for a full face, ya know? Alright… let’s get into it.


Bright, Bold Nail Polish

My girl Kathleen Lights has been killing it with her nail polish collection. They last a full week with no chips and her summer line has all of the bright poppin’ shades you will need.

Highlighter, Always Highlighter




I recently picked up this strobing palette from Drew Barrymore’s Flower Beauty line. IT”S INSANE, do you see that pigmentation?! Plus, it was only $12.99 at Walmart.

Non-Greasy, Light-Weight Face Products


I’ve been absolutely loving the Tarte Tarteguard Tinted Moisturizer – it has the perfect amount of coverage, so light weight and doesn’t make me oily! I use the Benefit Porefessional Gel underneath. If it’s one thing I cannot stand in the summer, it’s a cakey face.

My Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit


Nothing says summer like a bright white smile! I mentioned before in a previous post how much success I’ve had with the Smile Brilliant System. I love that the trays are custom fit, so they are super comfortable. I also have sensitive teeth, so I love that they have a system that works for me. Check out my previous post for a full review. If you’re interested in trying out Smile Brilliant for yourself feel free to use code ‘Awkward25’ for $25 off your trays! 🙂
