This post is in partnership with QVC, and I have been compensated for sharing beauty products and a topic of my choice from their website. I decided to hone in on summer beauty – and all of the items in this post are waterproof products with SPF and lightweight for the warmer months ahead. As always, I only partner with brands who allow me to share products that I’ve used and believed in and will continue to use. Thank you, QVC for this opportunity.
During the summer months, I always start my makeup routine with sunscreen, and then I apply a BB Cream, CC Cream, or foundation that has additional SPF in the formula. I prefer products with built-in sunscreen that will help protect my skin from the damages of ultraviolet rays – all of the products that I’m featuring today include SPF rating of 30, or higher and have excellent coverage (ranging from light to full) and great wearability.
I have a little something for everyone… Concealer with SPF, Matte-Oil-Free CC Cream with SPF, Moisturizing CC Cream with SPF, Liquid Bronzer with SPF and an Organic BB Cream (more of a tint) SPF with a Sunscreen Stick.
CONCEALER WITH SPF
IT Cosmetics CC Eye SPF 50 Color Correcting Concealer $29: This has become a can’t-live-without for my summer beauty routine – SPF50 CONCEALER. You’ll always find me wearing a hat and oversized sunglasses. When you’re in the south, you can’t run from the sun, and I spend a good amount of my day driving from client to client, so I have the sun exposure in the car as well. The one area on my face that I’ve developed sunspots around my eyes. You know the peekaboo area around the opening of your sunglasses at the outer corner of your eyes? The sun seeps in right there, no matter how big my sunglasses are and it’s just drenched the skin and has left me with a good amount of sunspots.
I’ve been extremely cautious about really applying my sunscreen in that area and reapplying. I started using this concealer (which I love!) to help combat my exposure to those harsh rays. This concealer brightens the entire eye area and it’s a beautiful, full coverage color-correcting eye cream, anti-aging skincare, and SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen all in one!
This product was developed with plastic surgeons and combines optical-blurring pigments with hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, colloidal oatmeal, aloe, silk, peptides and antioxidants.
FOUNDATION SPF AND BRUSH
IT Cosmetics Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream with Plush Brush $46: I know everyone who has been following my beauty recommendations for any length of time is familiar with my love for this product. It’s just easy to wear and a gorgeous coverage with SPF 50.
First of all – a lot of you ask, what is a CC Cream? It’s a color corrective cream and typically contains a skin-brightening primer, a light foundation coverage, moisturizer, sunscreen, and anti-aging ingredients.
This product also developed with plastic surgeons and a #1 bestseller, award-winning CC cream for years. It’s a correcting cream that delivers 7 products in one, including your full-coverage foundation, hydrating anti-aging serum, and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen. It’s the best foundation with moisturizing elements that doesn’t weigh your skin down, making you look oily – it merely diffuses the appearance of skin imperfections for flawless-looking coverage that won’t crease or crack.
Infused with hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins, this skin-loving full-coverage foundation diffuses the look of wrinkles, minimizes the appearance of pores and gives you a luminous, supple, flawless-looking complexion.
IT Cosmetics Full Coverage Oil-Free Matte CC Cream SPF 40 with Luxe Brush $39.56: I wanted to include something for my oily girls – this can be me too in the summer. This is an excellent replacement to the Peachy Foundation that I raved about last year. The only downfall to that foundation is that it didn’t’ contain any SPF. This oil-free, matte, CC Cream SPF40 is a full-coverage color correcting cream with a hydrating, velvety-matte finish for the most beautiful, poreless, airbrushed-looking skin!
It’s infused with cutting-edge technologies, is a one-step product that covers even your most stubborn skin concerns. It’s your serum, moisturizing day cream, pore perfecting primer, brightening cream, color corrector, SPF40 sunscreen, and full-coverage foundation, with a velvety matte finish that helps control the look of excess shine without looking dry or heavy. It’s beautiful, and this brush makes the application seamless.
BRONZER WITH SPF AND BRUSH
IT Cosmetics CC Cream Physical SPF 50 Bronzer with Luxe Buki Brush $43.50: This is new to my kit, and I love it! It’s a cream-based liquid bronzer with SPF50+ and comes with kabuki brush.
This bronzer has SPF 50+ UVA/UVB sunscreen that protects against the rays that both burn your skin and age your skin. It’s a highly pigmented, easy to blend, multitasking bronzer won’t crease or crack in fine lines, and gives you a healthy-looking skin-kissed glow. The anti-aging hydrating formula is infused with peptides; niacin; algae; vitamins A, C, B, and E; hyaluronic acid; and hydrolyzed collagen.
There are multiple ways to use this product. You can wear it alone, on top of your makeup, you can mix a pump in with your foundation or you can brush directly on top of your skincare. A little really does go a long way, so keep blending into your skin. I wore this mixed in with my IT Cosmetics CC Cream and it was the perfect amount of color and glow.
*Organic* BB CREAM SPF + SPF STICK
Coola Rosilliance BB Cream SPF 30 with Tinted Sport Stick $49: The products I listed above are more on the full coverage side, and I wanted to include an organic option with a more sheer tint.
This BB Cream by Coola is an organic mineral SPF30 with moisturizers, potent antioxidants, rose stem cells, and BB cream coverage. You can smooth it into your clean skin with your fingertips and it will quickly even out the look of your complexion, so you might find you don’t need much other makeup.
This collection also comes with the Tint Spot Stick, which is a mineral sunscreen stick with SPF50. You can apply on your face, cheeks, shoulders, check, and neck. The great thing about this product is that you can apply this over your Coola BB Cream.
