Update Your Summer Makeup Routine With These New ProductsMay 28, 2021
Color & Co Color Gloss Conditioner
Think of these color-depositing conditioners as subtle tints rather than full-on dyes. Available in six shades, there’s a rich blue to cool down brassy blondes, pink to add a rose gold sheen and a rich copper to add warmth. You can use them once a week in place of your regular conditioner.
NYX Professional Makeup The Marshmellow Smoothing Primer
To keep your makeup from melting off in the sun, it’s important to start off with a grippy base. The NYX Marshmellow Primer smooths the look of pores and promises to extend your makeup to up to 16 hours of wear — way longer than your average beach day.
L'Oréal Unbelievabrow Longwear Brow Topcoat
The horror of losing your perfectly filled-in brows after a dip in the pool is not lost on us, which is why we like to set ours with this clear, long-wearing topcoat. It’s waterproof, smudge- and transfer-resistant, and it promises to lock in your brows for a full 30 hours. The tiny wand lets you coat every single hair.
Carol’s Daughter Coco Crème Curl Perfecting Water Coco Mist Spray
We’re all about letting our hair air-dry in the summer, especially to counteract the drying effects of the sun, chlorine and saltwater. If you have naturally wavy, curly or coily hair, this lightweight styling spray will give your hair the moisture it craves after a wash and can perk up curls that have gone flat several days in. Coconut water, mango and papaya extracts add softness and tame frizz.
These creamy, boldly pigmented eyeshadow sticks come in an array of electrifying shades that pop on tan skin (we love Freak, a metallic slime green), as well as shimmery neutrals that add a touch of glam to any no-makeup makeup look. Plus, they’re waterproof and come with a built-in sharpener to create precise graphic eye looks.
L'Oréal Waterproof Air Volume Mega Mascara
It can be difficult to find a waterproof mascara that doesn’t look chunky on the lashes — or requires Herculean strength and a whole tub of coconut oil to slough off. That’s why we love this volumizing formula. It’s smudge-, flake- and sweat-resistant but comes off easily with a swipe of cleansing balm or oil.
Maybelline New York Fit Me Tinted MoisturizerThis tint feels lightweight and breathable on the skin and is infused with aloe for long-lasting hydration. Available in 12 sheer shades, it’s perfect for a fresh-faced, barely there look. Just don’t forget to apply sunscreen underneath.
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick
There’s nothing hotter than a bright coral lip in summer. We love this Lancôme liquid lipstick in the fiery shade Des Oui. The semi-matte finish feels lightweight and non-drying on the lips, and the precise tip on the applicator lets you get away with skipping liner.
Tower28 BeachPlease Luminous Tinted Balm
Tap this glowy balm on lips and cheeks for a natural, sun-kissed finish. The formula is silicone-free and infused with green tea and aloe vera extract, so it feels lightweight and blends seamlessly into the skin. There’s also no visible shimmer, which means you won’t be caught looking like a disco ball in the sunlight.
