Nordstrom Beauty Must-Haves for Summer

New bathing suit? Check! Cute beach tote? Check! Sunglasses? Check! Glowing skin? Ummmm??? With the heat and humidity that we’re having lately, you definitely don’t want to wear a full face of makeup this summer.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t look put together and polished with a little summer glow. 

Today, I am super excited to partner with Nordstrom to share several of my favorite summer beauty must-haves with you all.  I usually buy the majority of my beauty products from Nordstrom because they offer huge selection of some of my favorite beauty brands like NARS, Chanel and MAC Cosmetics.  Nordstrom is usually my one-stop shop for just about anything! If I ever need to find an outfit, the new “it” handbag, a new pair of shoes or any new makeup, then I always head over to the Nordstrom website first.  I love that they offer a fun rewards program, they have an amazing return policy, and of course the shipping is always FREE! 

In today's post, I'm rounding up 7 of my everyday Nordstrom Beauty Must-Haves plus a few tips for wearing makeup in the summer heat! These products are perfect for achieving that no-makeup look on a hot & sticky day or a full -ace look for that next big outing!  Although a few of these items I’m sharing have been my tried and true favorites for the past few years, I also trying out new items here and there and I can’t wait to share some new ones with you.  So let’s get into it!

1. Sunscreen

This beauty essential is necessary all year long not only in the summer months.  Since I’m in the sun a lot here in Florida, I wear sunscreen everyday under my foundation. I currently love the Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen Sunscreen from Supergoop. It’s great for daily use since its lightweight blends seamlessly into the skin for a non-greasy finish.  This sunscreen has SPF 40 with translucent formula that blurs pores and mattifies skin.

2. Tinted Moisturizer / Light Foundation

I usually just wear a light powder foundation on days that I don’t want anything too heavy on my face.  My go-to is the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation by MAC Cosmetics. It is a one-step powder foundation that gives skin a smooth, even, all-matte finish with shine control.  I use the color NC 45 – Deep Bronze Peachy. 

I haven’t tried out any tinted moisturizers yet, but I plan to try the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum by NARS. I’ve also heard really good things about this Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer by Bobbi Brown and the Tinted Moisture Natural Skin Perfector by Laura Mercier.

3. Concealer
No matter how much sleep I get, I have always had ready dark circles under my eyes. I’ve just accepted that and try to find the best concealers to blend into  my skin. The Radiant Creamy Concealer by NARS has been my favorite for a while now. It brightens, corrects and hydrates for a 16 hour wear.  I use the color Caramel.

Another concealer that I’ve been testing out lately is the Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer by Too Faced. It’s a multi-purpose concealer that contours, highlights and masks imperfections.

4. Bronzer

I just ran out of my bronzer, so I’m excited to try out the Airbrush Flawless Finish Bronzing Powder by Charlotte Tilbury. This formula was created to blend with the skin while blurring the appearance of any imperfections. The compact is about double size of your average bronzer, so it should last you a long time.  This bronzer comes in 4 shades and I’m trying out the shade 3 Tan, but I may need to try shade 4 Deep. 

The bronzer that I just ran out of was the Bronzing Powder by NARS in the color Casino.

5. Mascara

I’ve tried out several different mascara’s and this is the Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced is one of the best ones out on the market. It lengthens and delivers full voluminous lashes with just one coat.

6. Lip Color

I always have to have something on my lips and have lipstick even if it’s a clear lip gloss. Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of lipsticks and glosses that make my lips feel moisturized. I’ve been wearing this Love Me Lipstick by MAC Cosmetics and I’m obsessed.  It’s an Argan oil-infused lipstick that delivers an instant hit of powerful color and all-day moisture.  I wear the color Coffee and Cigs.

For a more sheer look, then I love wearing the Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm by Dior.  And I also just noticed that they recently came out with the Addict Stellar Shine Collection just in time for summer.  It contains 4 iconic shades of this fabulous sheer and vibrant lipstick. This would make a perfect gift for the holidays.

7. Setting Spray
And last but certainly not least is my absolute favorite All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray by Urban Decay.  This spray helps to set my makeup and keep everything looking fresh for up to 16 hours. They also offer a travel size, which is great to carry with you in your purse/makeup bag to freshen up if you need it.

So there you have it - 7 of my favorite beauty must-haves for summer with Nordstrom!  What are some of your current beauty obsessions? 

Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
