10 Femme Gem Approved Summer Make-up Essentials
By Krista P
1. Benefit stay flawless primer – (Apply in sections on the face, one side at a time)
Why It’s Gem Approved: It’s a 15-hour primer, comes out as a balm. Of course the cute packaging is a bonus! Note: don’t share with anyone, as it’s unsanitary because of the way it’s packaged.
2.Revlon color stay whipped foundation–
Why It’s Gem Approved: If you’re at all oily, I’d recommend it. It’s a whipped foundation and it says it stays on 24 hours and I believe it. It actually looks better as the day goes on as hard as it is to believe.
3.Josie Maran tinted moisturizer –
Why It’s Gem Approved: for all my dry skin girls! Spf 30 great for those days by the pool or a day at the amusement park.
4.Nars Laguna Bronzer–
Why It’s Gem Approved: It’s just a really basic bronzer with a little bit of shimmer and doesn’t make your face look “muddy.” Great for a nice glow!!
5.Hard candy baked bronzer–
Why It’s Gem Approved: Great for a highlighter, not so much a bronzer and is just $8.00.
6. Mac- Sunbasque Blush
Why It’s Gem Approved: Universal blush, it’s beautiful on everyone!
7. St. Tropez Self Tanner
Why It’s Gem Approved: Because self-tanner is always a better option than opting to the tanning bed. Easy to use and never blotches! Note: When you purchase this, be sure to get the mitt to ensure easy application.
8.Sally Hanson airbrush legs
Why It’s Gem Approved: Water resistant – medium glow. It will not last all day long and it covers your legs so much. It will stay on until you shower. Note: Kim Kardashian uses it!
9. Banana boat -Spf 15
10.Coppertone – Spf 8
Why It’s Gem Approved: along with the Banana Boat – these two sunscreens have the best ingredients and will not clog your pores or dry you out.
