Best of Summer: Beauty

July 13, 2010

We prefer summer beauty routines over winter for a lot of reasons. We’ve also found some new favorites this summer that we just had to share.

MAC Cosmetics has just launched a partnership we were waiting for with baited breath. Partnering with w&w favorite designer, Alice + Olivia, Mac pioneered this unique duo has come together to offer some stellar and super bright collection of color in pigments, dazzleglass creme glosses and nail lacquers. Our pick of the pack? The pigment “Partylicious” which was specifically designed to accompany the Alice + Olivia collection. We could have way too much fun with this on our eyes!

Mystic Tan’s Sunless Tanning Spray is one of the best ways we have found to tan at home. After many failed attempts with products from L’Oreal and Neutrogena, we’re happy to share that Mystic’s at-home tanning products work just as well as the salon. Their Face + Body spray is alcohol free, quick-drying, and deep penetrating to give natural looking sun-kissed skin.

NARS’ lip glosses are so lightweight you won’t even feel like you are wearing anything on your lips. We’re loving punchy pinks this Summer and Easy Lover is the perfect candidate for the job.

Leave it to Benefit to craft a great pore-minimizing balm. Given the hot weather and far too many makeup-melting scenarios you may find yourself in, The POREfessional feels like a feather in application as it’s silky and lightweight and a perfect primer for the rest of your makeup.

Some scents just say summer and lemon verbena is one of them. Brighten up your shower with Yardley’s nourishing bar soaps. The scent is bright and refreshing and a great way to wake up during your a.m.  Plus, it’s enriched with shea butter so it’ll leave your skin soft and moisturized.
