Easy Summer Beauty: Long-Wearing, Lightweight, and Foolproof Products to Try Now
1. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation
Ditch winter's heavy finish foundations for Chanel's light-as-air version ($45; chanel.com). We love how it glides on like a tinted moisturizer, but imparts an airbrushed effect.
2. YSL Babydoll Mascara
A full-on smoky eye can be too fussy for summer wear, but YSL's Baby Doll Mascara ($30; yslbeautyus.com) pumps up your lashes to create just as much drama.
3. Tom Ford Illuminating Cheek Color
Available in petal pink and deep bronze hues, Tom Ford's blendable cream blush ($58; saks.com) glides on easily to recreate that coveted post-yoga glow-minus the intense stretch session.
4. Click N Curl Brushes, and Living Proof Prime
Rock salon-like layers by working Living Proof's Prime ($20; sephora.com) into damp strands to create a long-lasting hold, then dry your hair using Click N Curl's innovative brushes ($46; click-n-curl.com). Once you press the button to detatch the brush head, clip it into place to set, and you'll be left with bouncy layers that will have everyone wondering "How does she do it?"
5. Lavanila Vanilla Coconut Roll-On Perfume
This summery blend of coconut, vanilla, and tiare flower ($19; lavanila.com) has us channeling tropical climes-and fits nicely in our beach bags.
6. Nails Inc. Gel Effect Top Coat
One coat leaves your manicure with a salon-worthy shine and a shatter-proof barrier from the sand, surf, and sun ($10; sephora.com).
7. Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation
Skip the primer-and the powder while you're at it. This lightweight foundation ($62; sephora.com) acts like Photoshop's blur tool on any imperfections, and dries to a velvety, matte finish.
8. Sun Bum SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray
Gone are the days of sticky, heavy sunscreens. Sun Bum's spray-on formula ($16; nordstrom.com) couldn't be easier to apply, and we love how it dries in mere seconds on contact with skin.
9. Mally Beauty Poreless Perfection Skin Finisher
Top off your foundation or tinted moisturizer with this mattifying powder ($45; mallybeauty.com), or wear it solo for a more natural look.
