Heyyyyllo Everyone !

As you all know when temperatures rise up a whole new skincare problems crop up. Although summer hardly departures here in Mumbai, so there is no drastic climate changes. Most of the year is dominated by warm weather here and so it is quite natural that I’ve become pro in selecting right beauty and makeup products that work in hot season.
Summer Beauty & Makeup Essentials

For me the month of May & June are ideal to freshen up my beauty – makeup routine and try something new. But there are few essentials that I always include in my summer beauty bag. So whether I’m headed to a beach vacation or weekend picnic, these basic beauty essentials never leave my side.

I hope this post help you guys to get out there and make the most of the hot warmy weather 😉 –

Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spf 30 : ( INR 675 for 141 g )

You don’t get a bronzed summer glow by not applying UV protection and tanning. Even a 5 year old nowadays know sunscreen is a must. Save your skin by applying a shot glass full of sunscreen and reapply every 2 hours. BUT the biggest question that bounces in my mind is, “ Best Sunscreen for My Skin Type?”  I can’t say I found THE one but well this is what I’m trying these summer days. I like how lightweight it is and it comes with the oil free formula that is completely non greasy and quick absorbing. A detailed review is on its way.

Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50 Mattifying Face Fluid Dry Touch :
( INR 1200 for 50 ml )


A person with oily face often gets limited benefits from a sunscreen. This is were a mattifying sunscreen comes into picture. I’m so glad that I can now do all my intense activities without any worries. It also goes excellently under any kind of makeup. No parabens and perfect for oily skin beauties.

Kara Face Wipes with Tea Tree Oil : ( INR 50 for 10 wipes )


These are rare to find and mostly out of stock. I’m dying to re-purchase these but unable to find anywhere. This was my best spontaneous and impulse beauty purchase. These wipes are affordable version of The Body Shop Tea Tree Wipes. I like how they instantly remove makeup, dirt and oil without drying out my skin.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal : ( INR 200 )


The deep black shade stays fresh all day long even during the hottest summer day. It can also survive an intense gym session ( tried & tested ). I like how gentle it is on my lash-line as well as water-line. No re-application needed. A safe choice during summer when most of the liners doesn’t last. Also it is wise to go for a smudge proof liner like this one.

Revlon Colorstay Makeup ( INR 875  )


Hot summer days and layers of makeup can be a complete mess ! But we go want some covering up and Revlon Colorstay does that pretty awesomely. It stays on for hours and with right prepping and setting you can look flawless all day long.

Avene Thermal Spring Water ( INR 550 for 1.76 oz) :

For me these days its hard to get 9 hours daily sleep and during travel the situation becomes quite worse. But Avene Thermal Spring water ensures that your hectic schedule and tiredness doesn’t show up on face easily. It also helps to set my makeup and settle my redness caused due to heat. This magical thermal water is now my everyday essential. I know its on the pricey side but totally worth your money !

Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara ( INR 375 )


You probably know very well that little is more when it comes to makeup. So a light touch of blush and Maybelline Colossal Mascara will do the trick. Just two coats are enough to add volume to your lashes and transform you into a summer diva. I always buy the waterproof formula one which hardly smudges. Absolutely no problem of melting off or panda eyes !

Sunglasses : 


Although Sunglasses are not a beauty essential but for me they are definitely a summer must have. When I’m choosing sunglasses style and comfort play a very important part. Go for a stylish pair that you are comfortable wearing. Also make sure the lenses have proper UV protection, I recommend polarized lenses for complete protection ! 


So get ready to have fun in the sun with these summer must haves 😉
