Who has time for a full face of makeup when there’s relaxing to do? Not us! Keep it low-key on your cookout crawl with this easy beauty mantra: “Sunscreen, swipe of mascara, lip balm.”
EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 Sunscreen - Tinted
As always, sunscreen > everything else, especially since you’ll be spending extra time outside. EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 Sunscreen - Tinted offers just a little sheer foundation coverage with broad spectrum protection in the form of 9% zinc oxide and 7.5% octinoxate. It’s fragrance-free, oil-free and sensitivity-free, and it even contains 5% niacinamide to reduce redness, irritation and blemishes. Your body needs sunscreen, too, so be sure to stash some EltaMD UV Sport Water-Resistant Broad Spectrum SPF 50 in your bag as well, and reapply both formulas often.
Swipe of Mascara
For warmer days, you definitely need blinc Mascara. blinc’s water-resistant formula binds in a tube around each lash, so there’s no need to worry about smudging or flaking throughout the day. That means there’s also no need to worry about looking like a raccoon by three, which is always a win! It’s great for anyone, including those with sensitive eyes, and it’s available in six different shades to bring out any eye color.
jane iredale LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm
jane iredale LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm offers easy, no-mirror application with SPF and sheer color payoff. As if that wasn’t enough to get us hooked, it also soothes and softens lips and offers antioxidant protection with coffee seed, blackberry and green tea extracts. This balm features a refreshing lemon oil scent and taste, and it’s available in four pretty shades. We can’t get enough of the newest color Flirt, a sheer peachy pink.
