Sunny season must-haves

Summer is finally here! With each season comes a different set of beauty needs, so what should you stock up on for this sunny season? We'll get you started with our top ten summer beauty essentials.

Sunny season must-haves

Summer essential #7

Tinted moisturizer: Dare to go bare this summer, meaning it's time to trade heavy foundation for a much lighter tinted moisturizer. We're partial to Chanel's Hydramax + Active Teinte ($62), which provides lightweight yet significant coverage, hydrates your skin and gives you that covetable dewy look. It doesn't come cheap, but sometimes a lower price alternative is a lower quality one, plus a little goes a long way.

Summer essential #8

Waterproof mascara: Long lashes are fabulous in any season but with all the sweat, swimming and sprinklers of summer, it's even more important to use a waterproof formula so that it stays on your lashes and not all over your face. Try CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Mascara ($8) for long, volumized lashes.
