Summer Makeup Essentials: Two New Must-Try Products

Now that we’ve unofficially kicked off summer, I’m ready to dive head first into a sunnier makeup look. Think sheer skin, glowing cheeks and a warmer skin tone (created with the help of makeup, of course). To get this look, I’ve recently stashed these two makeup products in my bag. I’m already addicted and it’s not even June.

Kiehl's BB Cream

Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream, $37

From the day I started using this BB cream, I was hooked. It offers up the perfect amount of coverage — more than a tinted moisturizer and less than a foundation, SPF 50 (yes, 5-0) and it contains vitamin C to help fade dark spots. If that’s not a triple whammy, I’m not sure what is. Having one product that can do it all is exactly what my busy schedule calls for.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Bronzer

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder, $36

If you want sun-kissed-looking skin that glows, but doesn’t shimmer or sparkle, this is the bronzer for you. What I love even more than the texture and finish is that it comes in four bronze shades, and Bronze 01 is perfect for my very fair skin. It doesn’t make my skin look muddy and it blends in seamlessly. I look instantly more rested and happy with a little bronzer. It’s a small miracle, really.

What products are you banking on to get you through summer?
