Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. We can’t wait! To kick it off, we’re stocking our respective makeup bags with just the necessities:
Eminence Green Tea & Hemp Blotting Tissue
In summer, you need makeup that will carry you through the warm, the hot and the humid without missing a beat. That means it has to actually stay on your face. Big shocker, we know. If you’ve avoided blotting papers in the past because they took off your BB cream or foundation, you’ll be thrilled with these Eminence tissues. They’re made from green tea leaves and hemp fiber and they remove dirt, oil and shine only. Your makeup, perfume and skin care is finally in safe hands.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir – Travel Size
While they both leave you glowing, there’s a definite difference between sweaty and dewy. This travel-size spray is all the latter and more. It smells absolutely gorgeous thanks to rosemary extract, mint, grapeseed and other natural ingredients, and botanically derived astringents work to calm, soothe and balance the complexion. It’ll leave pores looking smaller and skin looking brighter in just a few spritzes.
jane iredale Bronzer in Rose Dawn
A good bronzer is hard to come by, especially for those of us with fair skin. But we can safely say that there’s a little something for everyone in the four cool pink and copper shades found in jane iredale Rose Dawn Bronzer. You can swirl the colors together and sweep them across your cheekbones and temples for the ultimate summer luminosity, or choose individual shades to use as a highlighter, blush and bronzer. The powders even double as eyeshadows and they contain skin-loving antioxidants. Sold yet? We are!
glo minerals GloGloss in Poppy
A summer take on a classic lip! This candy apple red gloss is on-trend, non-sticky and it gives a sheer hint of color with just the right amount of sheen. Don’t be fooled by the tube—with GloGloss in Poppy, you can expect more of a subtle, I-just-had-a-cherry-popsicle hue than a full-on liquid lipstick look. It also contains vitamins A, C and E, plus green tea extract and aloe to help keep lips smooth and soft.
