Itsy-bitsy bikinis, daydreams of Mai Tais and the aroma of Coppertone sunscreen in the air. Yep, summertime is here! Step onto the beach – or your office cube – showcasing these summer beauty trends. Your pampered skin will thank you, too!

LIP OFF

Fantastico Lip Stain

Summer trends are all about the 'barely there' makeup for a soft, sun-kissed look. This year, lip stains are all the rage!

Check out Sephora's latest line, tokidoki, which offers the Fantastico Lip Stain, $15. Five shades of pinks and purples are available in a sweet mango flavor. This buildable coverage stain is also made without parabens.

For a completely natural lip stain, try Tarte Natural Lip Stain with LipSurgence™ Technology, $24. Not only is this stain infused with soothing peppermint oil in gorgeous summer shades of roses, peaches and berry colors, it is formulated without all those nasty chemicals like sulfates, synthetic dyes and GMOs. (And speaking of those bad chemicals, another summer trend is healthful beauty products, formulated without a laundry list of questionable ingredients that have been linked to cancer, birth defects and more.) Perhaps the best part of this lip stain is the LipSurgence™ technology, which increases your lips' moisture by 6000%, plumping them for a healthy, smooth and kissable look.

For those steamy summer evening romances, opt for the Sephora Collection Stain and Shine Lipgloss, $15. This dual-ended summer must-have comes in three fun shades: coral stain with gold shimmer gloss, merlot stain with clear gloss and plum pink stain with sheer pink gloss. Grab this secret weapon for stained lips by day and more pronounced lips at night!
