Whether you’re plotting your next tropical getaway or prepping for the onset of beautiful, warm weather in your hometown, these 15 fun and practical finds comprise our must-buy list for the sunshine-filled days ahead.
When you're on vacation, sometimes a great glow-enhancing powder is all the makeup you need. This bronzer and highlighter duo from Charlotte Tilbury's forthcoming beauty line is a total game-changer (the glam rose gold packaging is just a bonus).
- Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Charlotte Tilbury $65
Keeping skin hydrated is super-important when you're facing salt water, sand and wind all day long. We're obsessed with Miranda Kerr's organic beauty products, including this rosehip body oil, which you can apply post-shower for an allover glow.
- Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil, Kora Organics By Miranda Kerr $64
In hot and humid climates, a heavy, heady fragrance can be suffocating. Opt for a fresh and light scent, like Jouer's signature floral perfume with notes of jasmine, gardenia and honeysuckle. The rollerball size makes it perfect for travel.
- Signature Rollerball Fragrance, Jouer $42
Obviously, no vacation beauty hero kit is complete without a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor. This lightweight, oil-free SPF 50 sunscreen is paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free and helps repair sun damage while protecting skin from UVA and UVB rays.
- Protect The Truth Sunscreen, Ole Henriksen $35
If there were ever a moment to ditch the hot tools and embrace hair's natural texture, a warm-weather vacation is it. If your natural texture needs some help in the grip and curl department, a salt water spray will nudge things in the right direction.
- Ocean Mist Texturizing Spray , Sachajuan $28
For a night out, ditch smoky eye makeup in favor of a fun bright-color liner and a little bit of gloss on lids (when in a pinch, just use Vaseline or lip balm). We love Mally Beauty's bold pencils, especially because they're waterproof!
- Evercolor Starlight Watercolor Eye Liner, Mally Beauty $15
When you want a makeup look with a little bit more coverage for a day of sightseeing or shopping, a light liquid foundation with sunscreen will do the trick. Eve Lom's just-launched option has anti-aging properties in addition to SPF 15. Win-win.
- Radiance Lift Foundation, Eve Lom $60
While not technically a beauty product, a pair of stylish sunglasses will protect your eyes in the bright sun and for that reason, they're a must-have. We adore these lucite frames from Celine because they go with everything. If your lenses aren't polarized, consider having them replaced for added protection.
- Pearly Round Sunglasses, Celine $295
For an equally pretty alternative to bright-color liner, go for a lipstick in a pink, orange or hot red shade. Illamasqua's new 'Glamore' lipstick collection is our go-to for warm-weather thanks to the highly pigmented hues and satin finish formula.
- Satin Finish Lipstick in Luster, Illamasqua $26
