Our Top Summer Beauty Tips

We love a smokey eye (for summer, one using copper and taupe shades is everything), but falloff and smudging is often par for the course. Don’t let your makeup smudge all over the place from sweat and heat. Our trick: a quick swipe of a Makeup Remover Wipe to erase signs of anything-but-perfect application.






We're all about a summer glow (but not all about sun damage). Want to fake that sun-kissed look in a second flat? Simply dust our Luminizing Powder in Dusk Reflection on the forehead, temples, nose and chin - anywhere the sun would naturally hit. This powder is the perfect summer makeup to help you achieve that signature summer glow.



Summer whites offer up the perfect excuse to play up color around the eyes. Our trick for turning up the volume on your favorite shadow: spray a clean brush with our Elevated Hydration Mist to pull in even more pigment. This facial mist spray provides your skin with the perfect amount of hydration to beat that summer heat. 



Our Magic Beauty Balm is truly a wonder product - we basically use it anywhere and everywhere to help soften and soothe. And this time of year, it's our go-to after days spent in the sun. Apply to dry lips to soften, use on hair to smooth dry ends, and sweep across the shins, shoulders and collarbone for a sexy sheen. This body and lip balm will keep your skin sexy and hydrated on even the hottest days.



When it comes to lips, fewer touch ups and more color is always a good thing. Our trick for making it stick: pull a tissue in two plies and place one over your lips. Then, pat a layer of Invisible Blurring Powder over the ply with a fluffy brush to set your lipstick, gloss or crayon.

Summer Makeup Essentials

Aside from these products listed above, we also suggest a hydrating tinted moisturizer with sunscreen for that extra boost of hydration while also giving your skin a touch of coverage. A little mascara, brow gel, and plumping lip gloss are all you need to really ramp up your summer beauty routine.

Now that you've discovered our top summer beauty hacks, it's time to add them to your daily beauty routine! Remember summer is all about glowing skin, a dewy complexion, and a natural summer makeup look. The right skin care products and makeup will allow you to achieve that effortless look in seconds.
