Memorial Day weekend is coming up fast! I hope you have some exciting plans for the unofficial kickoff of summer, whether it's spending time with friends at the beach or enjoying a barbecue (I'll be playing golf!).
The three-day weekend is the perfect time to debut your new "summer" look. Guerlain's Terracotta Bronzing Powder is the best. NARS makes the perfect tinted moisturizer — it really looks like a tan. And their Body Glow gives you that shimmery look. You can use it on your face and even in your hair.
You still have time before beach season begins, so go ahead and start using a self-tanner now. The best one is from Clarins, and it has SPF in it.
For a summery "makeunder," swap your lipstick for Le Metier De Beaute's Lip Gloss Lip Creme in Framboise. On the cheeks, I like using Bobbi Brown's Highlighter Pen in Bronze for a little extra glow. If you'll be swimming, stick with Chanel's waterproof mascara and eyeliner. And Bobbi Brown's Beach fragrance has just been updated for summer.
For the body, I personally love Clinique's spray, especially at the beach. It doesn't get all over your hands (which I love when I'm playing golf), and it's great for reapplying. I'll also be using Clinique's Lip/Eye Sun Block, and I'll wear a hat — not a visor — to protect my hair.
