During the summer heat, I’m all about a multi-tasking makeup product in a hot pink shade. That’s why I’m so in love with this creamy matte product in the color Pink is Punk. It looks great and lasts all day on lips and cheeks — sweaty weather be damned — and the Valentino packaging is beyond chic.

A brown matte lip is my go-to all year around, which is why I was stoked to learn that L’Oréal Paris was dropping this liquid lipstick just in time for the end of summer and early fall! This stunning nude-brown formula hugs lips with ease and has a potent color payoff that saturates my lips with one swipe.
With fall around the corner, maintaining my summer glow is at the very top of my to-do list. This firming daily moisturizer makes it easy: It subtly tans and adds glow to the skin with every use and is infused with hydrating squalane and grapeseed oil, plus caffeine to brighten and nourish.
My go-to look is lots of mascara, a little concealer and a soft, glossy lip. Lately, this product has been my go-to for the last step of my routine. The formula glides on easily and leaves a lacquer-like shine that lasts all day, even through eating and drinking. My favorite shade is OG Backtalk, a dusty, pinky nude.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been eager to try a massive eyeshadow palette like this one — I‘d say I haven’t been excited about once since high school — but something about the rosy color scheme and wide assortment of shimmers piqued my interest. I’m glad I tried it, because I’ve been reaching for it almost every day. The shimmery shadows are pigmented and reflective, the mattes are soft and buttery, and the range of shades makes it easy to create a natural or a smoky look.

ICYMI: Colored mascara is everywhere this season and I, for one, am fully on board with the bold trend. I was already a fan of the ultra-lengthening Telescopic Lift Mascara in black, so it’s no surprise that I love this vivid violet version, too. The Galactic Purple shade perfectly complements my green eyes and the color payoff is unmatched.
As a die-hard cream blush lover, Tower 28’s award-winning BeachPlease Luminous Tinted Balm has always been one of my beauty faves. When the brand released a brand new shade called Dream Hour, I was instantly obsessed. The sun-kissed hot pink is totally on trend this summer and it’s perfect for a statement blush look.

No matter how much lotion I apply to my hands, I always feel like my cuticles are constantly dry. That’s why I’ve been reaching for the Essie On a Roll Apricot Cuticle Oil to keep them in check. I find that when I put this on, the skin around my nails feels soft and hydrated and I notice a lot less hangnails. It’s now a must-have staple in my beauty routine!
