What better way to perk up your summer than with some bronze, bright and shimmery products? None, we say! Here are the six luxe new summer beauty items that will make you look like a bronzed beach goddess, with a little extra enhancement, of course.
BURBERRY’S SUMMER SHOWERS COLLECTION
Seriously, we are addicted to the colors in Burberry‘s “Summer Showers” collection – a beautiful assortment of two new products – Fresh Glow Blush and Lip Glow Balm, along with new summer colors for Nail Polish. All three products come in three amazing shades — Orange Poppy, Pink Azalea, and Pink Peony. The Orange Poppy looks orange in the tube, but goes in a wash of peach: think “cheeks post-workout.” The Pink Peony and Pink Azalea are also more subtle than they appear, leaving you with that blushing bride look. Not only do we love the colors, but, we love the coverage as well. Comprised of 50% water, Fresh Glow Blush and Lip Glow Balm provide light-weight, sheer and melt proof textures that are essential to your summer makeup routine.
COOLA SPF 20 MINERAL SUNSCREEN
Who wants to wear heavy foundations in summer — especially by the beach? Not us, that’s for sure. That’s why we love Coola‘s SPF 20 Mineral Sunscreen: this tinted shade suits our beach-ready complexion perfectly, doesn’t clog our pores and definitely doesn’t feel greasy. We’re left with perfectly even, perfectly safe skin. And yes, we do feel perfectly happy about that.
DOLCE&GABBANA’S SUMMER GLOW COLLECTION
Dolce&Gabbana’s new summer glow collection embodies the best shades of summer with its collection of warm gold and amber-toned products. We can’t get enough of the Glow Bronzer Duo, which holds two different shades of bronzers in one luxurious product to define and perfect the contours of the face. Use it as one product, two, or a combination of both to create a third shade, which, when used together, create an amazing sun-kissed look. Lighter complexions might opt for the Natural Bronze, which merges the shades Cashmere and Sunshine, while true beach bums will probably pick the Deep Bronze, which combines the Desert and Bronze shades. The Summer Glow collection also includes great gloss fusion lipsticks in Lily, Orchid and Jasmine (all named after flowers), to create a lusciously-hued pucker for some true summer lovin’.
ESTEE LAUDER’S BRONZE GODDESS EAU FRAICHE SKINSCENT
Life is a beach, and we like to smell like one, which is one of the many reasons this scent is so great. This fragrance reminds us exactly of how our sun-warmed skin smells after a day tanning on the sand. At its core is radiant amber, with creamy coconut milk, sandalwood and vanilla unfolding into deeper notes of vetvier and myrrh. There’s also lively notes, like mandarin, Sicilian bergamot and lemon and orange, which when combined together, make for an aroma that’s as memorable as that first Saturday on Zuma Beach.
BOBBI BROWN’S SURF & SAND COLLECTION
Whether you’re going for a shimmery gold or a matte neutral, there’s something for everyone in Bobbi Brown’s Surf & Sand Collection. Brown’s new line includes beach-inspired, linen-treated eye palettes, a Shimmer Brick for the perfect sun-kissed glow and four Creamy Matte Lip Colors for a natural but fresh wash of color. We’re partial to the Sand Palette, which has four matte and four shimmery golden shades including our favorites, the Bikini Bronze and the Blazing Star.
