Must Try Summer Beauty Products

While much of the country gets to enjoy a bit of spring, the weather in Miami has jumped straight into summer. Fiinding the shorts, tanks and sandals isn't hard to do, updating the beauty products is a little more challenging. Warmer weather means lighter makeup, fun summer colors and lots of sunscreen.

As make-up counters everywhere swap out their beauty lines, here are a few products to try now.

Summer is the time to get back to basics with the makeup. Heavy foundations, lipsticks and powders will cause problems in the intense heat. Instead, opt for a more natural beauty routine but don't forget the mascara. L'Oreal's Voluminous Butterfly Mascara uses an asymmetrical brush that runs along the lash line to create a fuller effect in just one use.

Sunscreen is a must throughout the year but even more important during the summer months when spending time outdoors increases. A good facial cleanser can unclog the pores sunscreen can leave behind. Try Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit cleanser and foaming scrub to leave skin clean, refreshed and smelling just like summer. Also, drop a package of the cleansing wipes into your beach bag for a quick pore cleansing as you leave the beach.

Think coral when it comes to summer colors. The mixture of orange and red is bright, vivid and perfect for lips and nails. Try Covergirl's Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in coral twist and Essie's alluring coral peach from their resort 2014 line.
