You will need these products to look your very best all summer long.
10- Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Lotion
Summer is the perfect time to have beautiful tan skin. However, spending long periods of time under the sun without sun protection is not recommended by a dermatologist. Spending too many hours under the harmful rays of the sun can do more damage to you than give you any benefits. Yes your skin will have a stunning tan but your skin will also suffer in the long run from it. Spending countless hours under the sun can cause premature wrinkles, age spots and even skin cancer. For this reason self tanning lotions are the way to go.
This Vita Liberata self tanning lotion is the perfect tanning lotion when you want a mild tan with a glow that will not appear orange.

What I like best about this tanning lotion is the fact that you decide how tan you want to become. The color is customizable just for you.
9- Stila Illuminating Foundation
During the summer months, we tend to wear a lot less makeup as the weather is not the best to add multiple layers of makeup to our face. During warm weather your pores are prone to become larger and clogged if you tend to use a whole lot of products.

7- Lorac Love, Lost & Lace Lipgloss Set
Although liquid lipsticks have become the ultimate beauty trend, lip gloss is making a comeback. The benefits of a great liquid lipstick is the fact that once you apply it there will be no need for you to reapply for at least four hours.

These Lorac lip glosses have one of the best formulas on the market for the simple fact that they do not feel sticky on your lips.
