our favorites: summer beauty essentials.

We’re headed to Atlanta market on Friday to buy for Fall/Winter 15 (be sure to follow us on Instagram @glitter_blog_xo for sneak peeks and behind the scenes pics!), and afterwards we’re headed to Lake Oconee for a quick weekend getaway. Here are the seven things we never leave home without this time of year.

Summer Beauty Essentials

1 // Pale blue is THE nail polish color for summer 15 (we know you know this). L scooped Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blue Away ($2.97 WHAT) the other day, and this polish brand just might make us abandon Essie forever. It dries super-fast and has an extra-wide brush for even coverage (and also a dumb name, but we can forgive that). We also love the Double Duty Top Coat.

2 // We both have wavy hair, and we like to experiment with sea salt spray to up the texture factor.  We like this one by Josie Maran, but different hair types need different sea salt sprays. This handy article will guide you to the right one for your hair.

3 // A sweaty face is not cute. These blotting papers by Tarte get rave reviews.

4 // Our friend Christa  is something of a lipstick savant. Coral Crush by Maybelline is her pick for summer – in her words, it’s “not very bright but super pigmented.” View other great options here.

5 // This natural-looking self tanning spray by L’Oreal is a year-round beauty essential. It’s honestly pretty goof-proof – just be sure to prep your skin before you apply. We graduate from the “medium” shade to the “dark” shade in the summer.

6 // Our favorite volume-boosting dry shampoo. Because washing, drying and styling your hair in the summer heat is straight misery. L has been known to go for a WEEK between shampoos using this. Really.

7 // Fedora – Despite our best ninja moves with dry shampoo and sea salt spray, sometimes the only answer to summer hair is a fedora. Throw it on and don’t look back.

3. Skincare. We love nothing more than being out in the sun…but it’s bad, bad bad for our skin. An effective sunscreen is an absolute must this time of year all year long. Beautiful Makeup Search lists their top ten sunscreens right here:
