Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Lotion, Broad Spectrum SPF 55

“If I had to sum up this magical anti-humidity spray in two words, it would be: summer lifesaver. Trust me, frizz and flyaways don’t stand a chance against its no-hold formula.” — Sophie Dweck, Associate Editor

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

“In the summer, my main goal is to make it look like I’ve just had a fabulous vacation and spent a lot of time in the sun, even when reality tells a different story. This Chanel bronzer is excellent for making even the prettiest of us look like they just jumped off the plane from Greece!” — Sarah Carbonaro, freelance fashion assistant


Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara

Divine Skin: Rose 001 The Essence

“HOLIDAYS” by Holidays

“If summer has an official scent, this is it. It has your classic summery notes like coconut but also notes of pool water and swimsuit lycra. I haven’t never worn and I haven’t received a compliment.” — Breana Crews, Freelance Fashion Assistant


Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream 0.68 oz.

“Now that you know the only sunscreen I use, I thought I’d share the only eye cream I use. Vital after a long flight, long night, long year. Trust me. The Prairie must be French forever.” — Erik Maza, Executive Style Director

New! Absolute Radiance Serum

“Another essential part of my summer beauty routine? A really good serum. I was recently introduced to Luzern’s new formula – and wow. The glow is truly out of this world. It’s packed with plant-derived enzymes, of vitamin C and other good-for-skin ingredients that help exfoliate dead skin cells while promoting the most luminous complexion.” — Sophie Dweck, Associate Editor

“I hate wearing foundation, but when I have formal events I love wearing What the Foundation because it gives my skin that punch I love without feeling like a mask. It’s a tint, it’s a hydrating balm, whichever way you look at it, it makes my skin look amazing. And it smells divine too.”—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor


ReDimension Hydra Powder Blush

“Normally, I’m a cream blush girl, and almost exclusively cream blush. But when RMS’ innovative new gel-to-powder blush hit my desk, I just had to try. I love the Sangria color for a long-lasting, subtly golden effect. – pops of color on the cheeks. This is going to be my go-to blush with a tan for sure.”—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor


Backstage face and body concealer

“The heat and humidity of summer means that when it comes to concealer, I have to call in the heavy artillery. In this case, that means Dior Backstage Face & Body Concealer, which has full coverage but a natural finish.Best of all: it has the caffeine and is waterproof.This is essential both to banish the effects of fatigue on my skin and to ensure that I don’t walk around with my face sinking into my neck in 90 degree weather. Whether it’s for formal events or just my everyday makeup at the office, this is my go-to.”—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor
