Charlotte Tilbury Rock ’N’ Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in Bedroom Black
This is the blackest, creamiest liner ever. Use it to tightline your upper lid for an easy, faux-smoky summer look.
Laura Mercier Caviar Chrome Veil Liquid Eye Shadow in Night Sky
I’m a huge fan of Laura Mercier’s Caviar Sticks—this is a new super sheer formula that’s melt-proof for summer.
Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara
Stays put in summer humidity (without being waterproof which is so annoying to remove), even on the lower lashes.
Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick and Face Trace Contour Stick
Hands down my new favorite foundation stick for my dry skin. Buildable coverage in a TSA-approved, easy-to-pack formula.
Sunday Riley CEO Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil
Face oils seem counterintuitive in the summer, but just a few drops of this smooth and brighten your skin without irritating it. I’m on my second bottle of this already since it came out in March of this year.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Lovely and Bronzer
Green beauty at its finest. Free from every questionable ingredient out there, it gives beautiful, buildable organic color in museum-quality, refillable packaging.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Gentle Fluidity Gold Eau de Parfum
An intoxicatingly warm but light fragrance with notes of vanilla and musk.
Oribe Cote D’Azur Eau de Parfum Rollerball
The perfect summer scent—like a trip to the beach in a little bottle—to throw in your beach or weekend bag for a quick pick-me-up!
While I love perusing the higher end nail colors, OPI polish is my tried and true for summer. It’s long lasting and available just about everywhere. Remember to take a clear topcoat on your vacay to refresh your pedi without having to repaint.
