The Ultimate 2022 Summer Beauty Guide
Sweat-proof your look this summer.
Things are heating up and we're beginning to think about long beach days, summer picnics, fun at the pool, or dare we say it - even going on vacation.
Summer screams natural sunkissed skin, beachy hair, and low-maintenance makeup. Here's our list of beauty essentials you can use all summer long.
We're starting with the skin first because sun protection is non-negotiable. If you're planning to leave your house, use SPF every day, no matter what. Apply a smooth, clear sunscreen to your skin before your makeup to keep sunspots, fine lines, and sun damage at bay. We love the Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 by Supergoop! Or, if you want a little more coverage, opt for a tinted serum that combines skincare and light coverage. The Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation by ILIA is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner!
Don't Forget Your Body
It's just as important to apply SPF to your body. Whether you're spending the day by the pool or beating the heat indoors, combat sun damage with a sweat-resistant sunscreen like COOLA'S
Protect Your Pout
Skip the heavy lipstick during the hot months and opt for a lip balm that leaves lips with subtle color and hydration. This wallet-friendly Revitalizing Lip Balm by Neutrogena combines hydration and pigment with sun protection!
The sun, salt, and chlorine can damage your tresses. Prevent color fade and dryness with sun-protection products for your hair. Bumble & Bumble's Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo refreshes oily roots and is enriched with UV filters for daily sun protection.
Tame The Summertime Frizz
Frizz fighters like the Ghost Weightless Hair Oil by Verb will come in handy before the next heat wave, and if you're looking to cut back on the heat styling - now's the time! Skip the blow dry and embrace your natural texture. Whether you have kinks and curls or stick straight strands, embrace the air-dry.
You'll need a few makeup essentials like smudge-proof eye formulas and the perfect bronzer to get you through everything from a midsummer wedding to humid nights out. Rethink your makeup kit and skip the heavy shadows for waterproof eyeliner. Instead, create a subtle wing that won't budge with the BADgal BANG! 24-Hour Waterproof Eyeliner by Benefit Cosmetics.
Complete your look with a tone-warming bronzer to add a natural sunkissed glow to your skin.
Play Up Your Lashes & Brows
No natural summer look is complete without full lashes and brows. LiLash and LiBrow purified serums keep lashes and brows looking naturally longer and fuller so you can skip the heavy mascara, powders, and pomades during the hot summer months
Skip the brow powers and sticky pomades that run the risk of melting off on a hot day. The LiBrow formula thickens and tints to create defined, bold eyebrows without makeup. Don't skip your lash serum. Just one swipe a day of LiLash can help nourish your hair follicles to boost the appearance of length and thickness of your lashes.
We're so excited about the warmer weather. Use the items mentioned in our 2022 beauty guide for a pool day, at the beach, or on vacation.
