The first official day of summer is less than a week away, which has many of us thinking about our makeup — specifically, how to keep it from melting away in the summer heat.
As the weather gets warmer, we're finding that more customers are asking for lighter products, like tinted moisturizers and BB creams. Two of our popular sellers in this category are Natura Bisse's The Cure Sheer Cream and Le Métier de Beauté's Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe Tinted Treatment.
Clinique's Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 gives you an instant boost of hydration, but it's very lightweight and sheer, with a hint of skin-perfecting color, and it's oil-free. I also like their Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup foundation, which is lightweight as well and wears beautifully all day.
You'll also want a long-lasting eye shadow, like Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Cream Shadow. You can wear it for 12 hours, and it doesn't crease. I like their Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner for all-day wear too.
Planning on going swimming (or just sweating a lot)? You'll need waterproof mascara. Try Armani's Eyes to Kill waterproof mascara, which lengthens, separates, and adds extra volume to lashes. I also love Chanel's Inimitable waterproof mascara.
Beauty bonus: Before you head out in the morning, spray on Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System to lock in moisture. It gives you a beautiful, dewy finish, and it's very cooling for the skin.
