With summer officially here, the hot muggy weather can make looking your best a bit tricky. Plaid lists our summer beauty must haves that will have you looking gorgeous regardless of how sizzling it is outside!
The most crucial summer essential is SPF in your moisturizer! No matter how much you love the look of a tan, your skin with thank you later in life if you protect and take of it – so always, always, always apply and reapply sunscreen! Kiehl’s Ultra Moisturizer line is great because it has SPF 15 built in to its formula, so coverage is foolproof. The lightweight cream absorbs quickly, won’t clog pores, and most importantly protects skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Unfortunately for most of us (no matter how hard we try) our hair just does not stay smooth and silky in summer weather. So it’s time to embrace our frizz! Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is a miracle maker; just work the spray through damp or dry hair, let it dry naturally (yes, naturally) and get ready of a head of beach-worthy waves.
For people with problematic skin, beach season can become a bit stressful. Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup is phenomenal because it provides a completely natural satin finish while covering imperfections. It comes in 16 different shades and is waterproof, ultra-light and water-based, so no more worries about looking good while making a splash!
Flattering for all skin tones, this soft bronze powder gives skin a healthy, natural looking tan with no sparkle or shine. (It even comes with a cute, soft, natural-bristle brush for even coverage.)
This universally flattering coral shade will have you looking lovely poolside, but is not too dramatic for everyday wear. The formula is moisturizing, creamy and stays put, ensuring you put your best face forward even on the hottest of days.
