Nothing better than that SUMMER HEAT! Who doesn’t love feeling the warmth of the summer sun showering their face? How about wearing fun pops of color on our lips, cheeks and eyes? As lovely as these higher temps are, there’s one thing that comes with the territory that can be a major buzzkill — smudgy makeup that can’t stand the heat.
We’re in love with matching our makeup with our summery mood (think: bright eyes thanks to Ilia limitless lash mascara in After Midnight, Ilia lip conditioners for a little bit of pigment and Peach Luminizer from RMS for a little bit of a bronzed glow!). But it can be a major drag when our makeup can’t stand the heat.
Luckily, we’re stocked up with the best products that help make our makeup last all day long - all without clogging our pores, adding unwanted shine, or taking away from your natural beauty.
The below products not only add to your gorgeous glow, but they have many skin benefits (including SPF), too!
Prime Your Shine
Coola Day Dream Primer SPF 30 mineral primer is your weightless, multitasking best friend for radiant-looking skin and makeup all day long. The silky smooth formula shields your skin with signature Plant Protection® and mineral broad spectrum SPF 30, while Honeysuckle, White Lily and Iris Stem Cells instantly enhances overall skin quality. The lightweight texture offers a photo-reflective appearance to blur fine lines, even out skin tone and minimize pores to create a smooth finish when used alone, or for flawless makeup application. A dream come true for your skin and makeup!
Add some natural SPF with a hint of luminosity with ILIA Radiant Translucent Powder with SPF 20. This organic blend of powders includes Aloe Vera with light essential oils of Rosemary and Thyme. Hibiscus Flower extract acts as an antioxidant to the skin while non-nano zinc oxide provides SPF 20 protection. The fine pearl pigment offers light reflecting properties that brings an irresistible luminosity to the skin. Perfect for on-the-go, this travel companion makes it easy to reset your look during the day.
ILIA Multi-Sticks combine organic ingredients with the healing properties of Vitamin E and Shea Butter. Apply to cheeks, lips and eyes for a sheer blush of color!
We also recommend ILIA Color Haze, a unique, cleanly formulated cream based formula for cheeks and lip that can build in color intensity, or blend out to a soft wash of color. Dries down to a natural matte finish on lips. Choose your level of color payoff by dialing up the intensity with a few bold swipes or blend out for a soft haze of color.
Let Your Eyes Do the Talking
Prime your eyes for lasting color with Ilia Eye Primer. This feather-light formula creates the perfect canvas for eyeshadows—it instantly brightens while intensifying color and giving you a crease-proof finish that lasts. Why do we love it? It’s unique combination of brightening mineral pigments, hydrating Aloe, regenerating Rose Hip Oil, and de-puffing Arnica protect as well as they perform!
Prefer powder instead of cream eye shadows? RMS Beauty Swift Shadows are designed for quick and easy application. Mixed with mineral color pigments, Rose-Marie’s favorite wild-crafted Buriti Oil and organic Jojoba Oil, Swift Shadows will not dry out the lid like traditional formulas. Unlike other powder eye shadows, Swift Shadows are pressed, not baked, which avoids heat exposure and preserves the integrity of the raw ingredients (ideal for summer nights!) Also, we’ve got them stocked in eight gorgeous colors.
