8 Summer Favorites 2018 | Day on the Beach

Summer Favorites
Day on the Beach

There are so many products available these days, and I thought instead of just rounding up some of my favorites for summer that I would break it down into “sets” with themes, so this set of summer favorites, which I’ve called Day on the Beach, with everything build off of Urban Decay’s Born to Run Palette, which has lots of summery shades to choose from along with berry/plum and blue/greens.   You can view swatches of all the products in this set here.

What are some of the products you’ll be wearing this summer?  Share in the comments below!

While these are favorites I’ve enjoyed and would recommend, I hope each set I’ve put together also helps inspire you to try certain products, textures, or shades together. Every product I’ve mentioned I’ve reviewed, which means they also have a list of dupes, so you can check your stash for similar shades and put together your own Day on the Beach set with what you have. Pro tip:  refine results to products you have in your vanity (see this post for more info if you’re like, “Say what?”).
