Sweltering heat calls for products that are more lightweight, effortless and easy to apply and transport from your house to the beach. Who wants to fuss with thick creams and smudgy makeup when facing the warmth? Ahead, 10 makeup and skincare essentials to switch to so you can achieve the ultimate glowy summer look without the hassle.
Summer Beauty 101
Select a lightweight BB cream instead of a normal foundation for a radiant base and instant sun protection.
Switch to a foam cleanser during the summer as it helps draw out dirt and sebum faster than their cream counterpart. Plus, it'll help get rid of oils accumulated throughout the day.
Lip & Cheek Tint
Instead of a blunt matte lipstick, opt for a two-in-one lip and cheek tint to add a hint of glossy color and dimension to your pout and face.
Switch your regular mascara to a waterproof version to avoid smudgy raccoon eyes in the heat.
Stow away your contour kit for a simple highlighter stick to easily swipe on for a luminous summer glow wherever you are.
As you wear off-the-shoulder tops in constant rotation (we don't blame you), switch out your body lotion for a body sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays as your skin is more exposed.
Choose a cream eye-shadow pigment in lieu of a hefty palette to easily blend a vibrant summery hue onto the lids.
Upgrade your hairspray to a texturizing beach one to prolong (or fake) those just-got-out-of-the-water tresses.
Your skin tends to get more oily in the summer. Avoid a greasy canvas by switching to a hydrating gel moisturizer.
SPF Setting Spray
Instead of a cakey finishing powder, complete your look with a refreshing spritz of SPF setting spray for additional sun protection that keeps your makeup in place.
