Summer Makeup and Hair Products to Beat the Heat

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

Spritz your face with this ultra-fine setting spray and you won’t have to touch up your makeup once during the day. We applied it before going to a music festival and couldn’t believe how it kept our foundation in place and our eye makeup from smudging.

Hourglass Illusion Skin Tint

This heavy-duty foundation is one of our summer makeup bag mainstays. It has a creamy texture and medium coverage (so has serious staying power), but is lightweight enough that skin feels like it can breathe. And because it’s packed with hyaluronic acid, it leaves your complexion looking plumped, dewy, and oh-so-radiant.

Grace & Stella DePufifng and Energizing Gel Collagen Facial Mask

If the summer weather has your complexion looking puffy, you’ll want to slap on one of these cooling gel masks. Loaded with collagen and other minerals, it speeds up cell and collagen rejuvenation while reducing swelling, ruddiness, and fatigue. We’d recommend refrigerating the mask before use to maximize its de-puffing benefits.

Milk Makeup Cooling Water

Applying this soothing seaweater- and caffeine-infused gel stick is like hitting the reset button on your skin. It combats dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and puffiness, while restoring glow and circulation. We especially like to apply it under our eyes to tighten and de-puff.

Belif Hydra Sebum Control Essence

Chuck your blotting papers, your mattifying powders, and your anti-shine mists. This revolutionary sebum control essence gets to the core of the problem by decreasing surface sebum by 20 percent. And unlike some of the other oil-control products on the market, it doesn’t leave skin feeling tight or zapped of its moisture.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Cooling Water-Lotion

Some sunscreens go on heavy and sticky—not this award-winning sunscreen from La Roche-Posay. The water-like lotion is cooling and weightless, and absorbs fast to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection. It’s no wonder it has an Amazon rating of 4.6/5 stars based on 215 reviews.

Playa Pure Dry Shampoo

Resist the urge to over wash your hair this summer and opt for this luxurious dry shampoo instead. It’s formulated with a rare blend of botanicals and minerals to refresh and revitalize hair, and smells so good (a musky mix of rose petals and anise), that it doubles as a fresh, summery scent.
