Ah, summer. The sun is shining brighter, and it makes us want to play…with makeup! Channel your inner sun goddess with these five makeup essentials that’ll make you glow through pre-wedding festivities all summer long, while you save your bridal skin from the harming effects of the, you know, actual sun.
1. If there’s anything we want to do this summer, it’s look like always-aglow beauty queen Chrissy Teigen. Now all of us can get our Chrissy glow on with the Becca X Chrissy Teigen ‘Glow Face Palette’! This pretty palette includes a shimmering highlighter in two shades (Rose Gold & Beach Nectar), a near-perfect bronzer and a creamy blush. This handy little compact is our go-to palette for the season!
2. Get ready to pucker up to summer with ‘Love At First Bite‘—one of MAC’s newest lipstick colors for summer. It’s the prettiest shade of fuchsia, and looks great on every skin tone, poolside, beachside and beside your boo at barbecues, cocktail soirees and more pre-wedding celebrations!
3. Get a sultry, smokey eye with Clarins’ Sunkissed Summer Eyeshadow Palette for those hot summer nights in Houston. Feel free to mix it up and combine all of the shades—it won’t crease and lasts super long.
4. Looking for a highly pigmented nude lip color that’s semi-matte AND doesn’t dry out your chap-prone summer lips? Try out NARS Velvet Lip Glide in ‘Unlaced’—trust us, you’ll love the way it looks against sunkissed skin.
5. If you’re traveling this summer and want to look like you’ve been on the beach for days, Tarte’s Limited Edition ‘Girl Just Wanna Have Sun’ Sun Bronze & Sun Set is going to be your best-kept secret. It comes with a travel size self-tanning lotion, self-tanning face towelette, bronzer and contour for your bod and a waterproof bronzer that’ll give you a sun-kissed glow all day long.
6. Don’t forget to add a pop of color to the apples of your cheeks with Clinique + Jonathan Adler’s Cheek Pop, available in pretty shades of plum and peach. Did we mention how much we love the packaging? It’s also the perfect size for summer travel or to stick in your clutch on a hot night out! Happy shopping, loves…
