What's In My Beach Bag...(And Should Be in Yours!)
I love summer for many reasons...summer fridays at the office, endless opportunities for spicy margs and most importantly, days spent by the water. I'm pretty impartial to beach or pool..just get me in a swimsuit and I'm happy.
While I'm spending so much time in my happy place, I like to keep my beauty routine simple, yet impactful! Lots of SPF, lots of water, everything instagrammable of course hahaha. I've spilled (quite literally) what products I love to keep in my beach bag - not all are pictured! - and make it easy to be breezy and carefree at the beach:
Supergoop! Glow Stick Sunscreen
I LOVE HIGHLIGHTER so when I stumbled across Supergoop!'s Glow Stick Sunscreen which acts as not only an SPF, but as a great sub in for your favorite highlighter while you're in direct sunlight.
Supergoop! Every Day Mousse
I clearly am obsessed with Supergoop! but for justifiable reason! Use this all over your body while you're outdoors - it's easy to reapply and the formula doesn't leave you feeling chalky or looking ashy. 10/10.
bkr Water Bottle
Don't be a thirsty girl!!! Get yourself a water bottle...and may I reccommend one that has it's own lip balm built into the top? Yes, let's take a moment of silence for that ingenuity. I recently stumbled across bkr and I'm so happy I did....
Vegan Brownie from Feed Your Soul
I've never had a more tasty brownie than this Vegan Brownie from Feed Your Soul! It was delicious and frankly, I couldn't tell the difference between that and your typical Ghirardelli square! Now, I've just got to try the rest of what they're baking up....
Lumion Oxygen Mist
WARNING: You will get addicted to over-misting! I was gifted this Lumion mist and it's the perfect cure for hot climates...or NYC on a summer afternoon! It's a fresh blast
I absolutely love Glossier's Haloscope in Topaz and can be rarely found without it on my person. After a day at the beach, I'll wash my face and add this to the bridge of my nose, my cupid's bow, and on my cheek bones for a natural looking glow!
Glossier Balm Dot Com
When it comes to my lips, I get a little obsessive compulsive when it comes to keeping them moisturized. Summer is the best time to swap the Coconut flavor into the mix!
OUAI Hair Oil
Hands down my favorite OUAI product and the one everyone should have stocked at all times! This oil serves as a heat protectant so don't be afraid to add some to your locks while your beachside. Add some to your hair before getting into the ocean and it will also serve as a detangler. I also like to use mine as a substitute perfume because it smells so damn good..put a few dots on your wrists and behind your ears and you're ready to go in under 30 seconds.
Chanel Rouge COCO Lip Gloss
There's a shade that everyone will find flattering amongst the Chanel glosses, but I'm especially loving shade 774 for any summer occasion. The gold picks up the light perfectly and it goes with everything!
Nars Orgasm Illuminator
I fell in love with Nars Orgasm a few years ago and make sure to incorporate it into every summer beauty look. It gives you that glow from within look and the touch of pink is great for all skin tones.
Dirty Lemon Vogue Edit
If you haven't hear of Dirty Lemon, today is your lucky day! This trendy health drink is refreshing and great to drink before a long day at the beach. The Vogue and +Ginseng flavor is my fave but they also have +CBD, +Collagen, +Matcha, +Sleep, +Rose!
Bali Body Pineapple Tanning Oil
I'll admit that tanning oil might not be the best thing for you, but what can I say?! I love being as dark as possible! For a great smelling and subtle tanning oil...go with this one!
