13 Summer Beauty Products We’re Obsessing Over
Oooeee it’s hot outside, and in case you hadn’t heard, temps this summer have been breaking records globally. Environmental implications aside, the heat is forcing us to confront a different type of trouble: sweaty, melty makeup face. When it comes to summer makeup, no matter the destination, our motto generally is less is best. But whether you’re actually going bare-faced, striving for an au naturale look, or just feel like wearing some makeup, we’ve rounded up some products that’ll keep you looking and feeling good. Read on…
Elta UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
The importance of sun Protection is not breaking news, Jetsetters, and out of all the items in our arsenal, this is the most key. There are many options, but we always look for a broad spectrum sunscreen which blocks both UVB and UVA rays (UVA rays cause age-related damage, and UVB rays burn skin. Both are linked to skin cancer). Elta is a solid choice. Their products are consistently top-rated by dermatologists, and the tinted options also get a big thumbs up for all-around evening out.
Korres Yoghurt Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
This one packs a punch. Along with offering sun protection, it nourishes, hydrates, reduces inflammation, and locks in moisture. AND it’s easily absorbed by the skin to double as a primer.
Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Serum
Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops
Self-tanning drops, you say? Yes, drops are a thing. Mix in with your moisturizer and you've got a customized tan! The fewer drops used, the lighter the color. Start low and work up gradually.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer
Powder and gel bronzers have more staying power in the hot months and are much less greasy. Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting Bronzer uses a photo-luminescent technology in their “science-meets-beauty” products, and gives a radiant finish.
Rodin Olio Lusso Lipstick in Arancia Adore
There’s nothing chicer than a bare, sun kissed face paired with a red lip. A casual, imperfect smudge is, in fact, perfect.
L'Oreal Paris Makeup Infallible Super Slim Long-lasting liquid Eyeliner
Cat eyes are another summer trend. They’re always a mainstay, but this season's look leans more towards an exaggerated, graphic look. Think Cleopatra or Grace Jones.
Stila Glitter & Glow liquid Eyeshadow
For something fun, sparkle is this season’s statement-maker. Glitter, crystals, and even rhinestones have been spotted embellishing lips, faces, eyes, and nails all over the runways and internet. Self-bedazzling with gems and the like requires patience and a steady hand, but a glittery liner or shadow, like this one from Stila, creates a look just as effectively.
Maybelline New York Full ’N Soft Waterproof Mascara
Let’s avoid sweaty raccoon eye, shall we? A water-and-smudge-proof option like this is ideal.
Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick
This is "The ultimate homage to an Ibizan summer” says Cult favorite Charlotte Tilbury of her cool beach sticks.
Nars Illuminator, Copa Cabana
Reviewers have referred to the Nars Illuminator as a “holy grail product." It can provide all-over radiance or work as a highlighter.
Chanel Longwear Nail Color in Arancio Vibrante
This is the perfect orange-red nail color for August. Pair with sun-kissed toes.
Deborah Lippman Glitter Nail Polish
Take the glitter trend to your nails with Deborah Lippman Glitter Nail Polish.
OPI Sun, Sea, and Sand in My Pants
Classic nudes and beiges will always work, but how about a little sunshine in a bottle?
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Last Makeup Setting Spray
This settling spray features a patented Temperature Control Technology, which keeps ALL your makeup in place.
Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers
These blotting papers are made with 100% natural abaca leaf and gold flakes to absorb extra facial oil--without removing your makeup. They're easily packable, too.
