15 JULY BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

The most-wanted makeup, scents, skincare and hair products under the sun.

Summer is here and that means getting your glow on. The first step is head-to-toe exfoliation. Trending are purifying scalp scrubs that purge buildup and rejuvenate tresses. Sunny days at the pool beg for a summer skincare kit that includes a slew of moisturizers, mists, serums and bronzers to leave face, body and hair looking fresh and dewy. And don’t forget a fool-proof self-tanner. Might we suggest adding Chardonnay-scented sunscreen oil to your arsenal?


 
 
 

Portable, multi-tasking products are another must for ladies on the go from beach to street. A makeup primer-bronzer-sunscreen and blush-highlighter-contour-shadow palette are secret weapons to nail that no-makeup makeup look of beachy beauty.  

 

Easy-wear, no-melt beauty solutions include on-trend lip oils with a natural tint and waterproof eye color in playful shades to brighten up the face. 

On a lighter note, new hair perfumes and scented skin misters allow a layer of scent to waft into the room and linger.  A signature statement, indeed.

What does summer smell like? Some of the latest fragrances nod to great escapes–a nostalgic evening stroll in an English garden, a sensual escape to Portofino, or a starry summer night out in Hollywood.
