Summer isn't just a great time to explore your style, it's also the perfect time to try out bolder beauty looks that you couldn't possibly rock when classes are still going on. While there's no doubt that discovering and exploring different beauty trends is always exhilarating, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be smart when it comes to your beauty choices anymore. To make sure that you'll have all the fun, but still remain conscious and smart about your beauty picks this summer, we're listing down the beauty non-negotiables every smart girl needs in her makeup bag for all her summer trips.

We all know that whether it's the summer season or the rainy season, a good sunscreen is a must. But when the sun is out, make sure to double up on the SPF—especially if you're going to spend a lot of time in the beach. Too tamad to apply your sunscreen? Opt for a spray version instead!

Lip Balm

Try: Baby Lips Lim Balm in Mix Berry P89, Maybelline

There is absolutely no doubt that lippies are fun to play with, but during the summer season, expect that the chances of skin dryness is higher and that includes your lips, too! Make sure to carry around a moisturizing lip balm to prevent chapped lips.

Face Mist

Try: Rose Facial Mist P450, Blushing Beauty by Skin Station

For an instant pick-me-up in the middle of a hot afternoon, just spritz a hydrating face mist and you're good as new.

After Sun Spray

Try: Cooling After Sun Spray P275, Nivea

You may have lathered up on a trusty sunscreen, but just in case the heat is too much to bear, always pack an after sun cooling spray with you to help your skin recuperate after a long day under the blazing sun.

Bronzer

Try: Hoola Lite Soft-Matte Powder Bronzer P1600, Benefit Cosmetics

This summer, ditch the heavy contouring and opt for a sun-kissed glow you can easily score with the help of a bronzer.

Moisturizer

Try: Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Ato Salt Cream P1495, The Face Shop

To avoid skin dryness from worsening during the summer season, swap your regular moisturizer for a thick and creamy one to pack on the moisture!

Sheet Masks

Try: Vita Bright Skin Renewal Mask P134, Leaders Insolution

For extra moisture and hydration, spoil your skin with our favorite guilty pleasure—sheet masks. Plus, it's a great way to relax and escape the reality for a good fifteen minutes whether you're on your way to a new country or just lying under the sheets in your room.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
