5 Beauty Products You Need to Have This Summer

By Mikaela Vournas, Student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

1. Sunscreen:
This one is a given, but its importance cannot be underestimated! Between graduation, vacations, barbecues and so much more, sun protection is essential. I would go with a light, non-greasy type so you don't clog your pores.

2. Sunless Tanner:
A girl doesn’t have to skip the sun-kissed look in order to maintain healthy skin. I’m a huge fan of sunless tanner because once you find the type that works best for you, say goodbye to those harmful rays! My personal favorite type is lotion, but sprays are also quick and easy.

3. Tinted Moisturizer:
Foundation is far too heavy for the hot summer months. Opt for a tinted moisturizer instead, that way you can maintain a little bit of coverage while still looking fresh. It is quick and easy and will keep your skin from drying and peeling.

4. Updated Nail Polish Shades:
Put away those dark reds and browns. Nail polish is an easy way to update your style without having to break the bank. Neutrals are always a safe bet, but bright colors are a fun break from the norm. Try light blue, bright orange or even neon (if you’re really daring).

5. Waterproof Mascara:
Raccoon eyes are never in style. It’s not fun to have to worry about your mascara running before hopping in the pool or taking a dip in the ocean. Switching to a waterproof version of your favorite mascara will save you the hassle and allow you to stay stylish!
