So, we all get it—it’s just plain hot outside, and popsicles and air conditioning are generally the preferred cool down methods. In terms of beauty however, a feasible product to keep on hand for summer prettifying is a great face mist to act as an instant refresh for a myriad of warm weather woes.

PRE/POST MAKEUP APPLICATION

L to R: MAC Fix+ ($21), Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray ($29), Natura Bisse Diamond Mist ($79).

First summer beauty battle to tackle would be that of runaway makeup, which is rarely a good look no matter how gorgeous the gal. Natura Bisse’s Diamond Mist is a great multi-tasking option, as it serves as a skin primer pre-prettifying, a setting spray after the fact and can also be reapplied throughout the day for an invigorating cellular boost. Urban Decay’s spray delivers a chilled microfine mist to seal your makeup in place so your artful application stays put with a cooling effect on contact. For ladies with sensitive skin, MAC’s Fix+ calms the complexion with green tea and cucumber to impart a radiant glow post-primping.

ALL-NATURAL OPTIONS

We’re big fans of natural and organic products—could you tell?! To keep your lineup as chemical-free as possible, we love Kora Organics’ citrus spray for an energizing boost and Beauty Counter’s rosewater formula for a soothing spritz.

ADDRESSES & PREVENTS FINE LINES

TRAVEL-READY FORMULAS
