Makeup By Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum

I strongly believe that all you need on your lips during the summer is a lip gloss, and this delicately pigmented. lip plumping serum from Mario’s makeup it’s my piece to wear every day. Its oily base is ultra moisturizing without being viscous or sticky. It simply offers a nice clear wash of dewy color, but not so much that you are worried about reapplying or putting it on your clothes. And because the colors are so natural, I also like the way it fades out because it won’t leave an outlined border around the lip line; it will slowly fade. I have light skin with olive undertones and wear the mauve-purple Mocha Glow, although there are six other inclusive shades in the line.

Bumble and bumble Prêt-to-Shampoo in powder form

Spending long weekend days in the summer sun is heavenly, but it tends to make our hair look greasier and shinier at lightning speed. Instead of washing my fine type 2 hair every day, I dry shampoo my seasonal best friend and haven’t found a better option than this. Bumble and bumble masterpiece. I was a super fan of their OG dust, but this new and improved spray version is a dream come true and also protects the strands from UV rays. The spray comes out clear, not ghostly white, requiring minimal mixing, and the pink clay instantly absorbs oil and grime while volumizing the roots for a freshly washed look. But what really pushes it over the edge of perfection is that it’s great for fine, thick, straight, wavy and curly hair.

Ellis Brooklyn Salt Eau de Parfum

Just as we replace skincare seasonally, it’s also fun to set aside the heady ouds and patchouli with the lighter, beachier scents. Ellis Brooklyn it’s one of my favorite brands and I was skeptical about this perfume at first because I tend to stick to deeper aromas than fresh ones, but somehow this perfume is the best of both worlds. It still employs my beloved strong notes, like organic ambergris, but balances it with touches of sweet Tahitian tiare and warm sandalwood and musk that smells like salty leather on a tropical island in bloom. It is the fresh and summery scent for people who usually don’t like fresh and summery scents.

YSL Touche Eclat All-over lightening corrector pen

This YSL illuminating pen it has been a staple in my makeup kit since college. Available in 14 shades, this DIY twisty pen can be used as a liquid highlighter or under-eye highlighter. I like to use it over the under-eye concealer to give my eyes a little extra glow, as well as on the top of the cheekbones and along the bridge of the nose, using my finger to pat and blend, for light coverage and a radiant reflection. A Sephora MUA gave me this advice the first time I bought it and I’ve been applying it this way ever since: starting from the upper cheekbone, apply the liquid to tiny X shapes across the ear and blend for a more flawless finish than if you just drew a straight line.
