The Summer Edit: Products I'm Using This Season

With the goal of getting into a routine to make my life easier while moving, I edited down my essentials after testing a hoard of new beauty bits both from newly launched summer collections and lines that were just "new to me." I have to a beauty junkie with an undying love of testing new products, it can get a bit difficult to choose favorites, but I'll also admit that I've been enjoying this more edited roundup of new loves that have been added to my everyday routine. Here are the haircare, skincare, makeup & fragrance products that made the cut, and are currently perched proudly atop my vanity; they will no doubt be with me throughout the season no matter what others weasel their way in.
My summer skin goals consists of maintaining a certain level of moisture, while allowing my skin to breathe. Needless to say, I've become addicted to using fluid serums, lightweight gel moisturizers, potent, all-in-one treatments and masks that breathe new life to my skin. 

I don't know about you, but in the summer I can't be bothered to heat-style my hair nearly as much as I would during the colder months. Instead, I rely on good leave-in conditioners and products that let my hair air-dry looking as soft and swishy as naturally possible. I also love using texturizing sprays that extend my first-day style to day two, without sacrificing on volume. 

I'm finally falling back in love with colorful makeup, but still use it in very small doses, focusing on amplifying only one feature at a time. This season, it's either glowy cheekbones, a subtle pop of color (or even glitter) on the eyes, or a bold lip! I also use as many products as possible to extend the life of my makeup... and those include perfectly prepped lips, primers, and long-lasting setting sprays.

I'm a self-professed fragrance addict whether it be for the body or for the home, so when I become loyal to a few scents...I know they must be good. I also urge you to step outside the bounds of what type of scent you *think* you should wear based on the season; that's precisely how I found favorites in a few products that I would've never expected to suit my summer tastes! 

What products are you loving this season?
