BEAUTY: Summer beauty

Hi ladies- it's Rachel from Life Unsweetened. Today I'm focusing on which products you should be adding to your collection for summer. Summer makeup is probably my personal favorite- the colors are bright and bold and the textures are easy to pull off. Which beauty products will you be stocking up on for summer's arrival?

First up, you'll want to invest in a creamy cheek and lip stain, like the Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil. This two-in-one product comes in a variety of gorgeous colors that are perfect for summer. Apply just a little to cheeks and lips for a hint of color, or a few more layers to build up a bolder color. The creamy consistency is far from oily, and stains your skin for a long-lasting look even in the summer heat. Speaking on makeup sweating off, you'll want an easy-to-apply foundation for summer. Or, as I like to do, skip the cakey foundation and opt for a light tinted moisturizer or BB cream. The Dr. Jart+Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 is one of the best options out there. Not only does it provide coverage and even out your skin tone, it also boasts SPF 45 to protect your face from the sun.

Next up is a body beauty product- you heard that right! The Bliss FatGirlSixpack is a tummy-toning gel that firms skin with its ab-activating nubbed applicator. While the product won't give you abs like Candice's, it does help create a more toned look in addition to healthy eating and exercising. Think of it as makeup for your abs- without the mess or streaks.

The last product you'll need to get ready for summer is a sunless tanning product. Whether you prefer to use a spray, gel or lotion, the options are endless. I'm hoping to try the bareMinerals 'Faux Tan' Sunless Tanner for Body this year. The formula is said to last for 5-7 days and creates a natural-looking glow. It also includes aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients to provide extra hydration for your skin as you apply.
