1. Holographic Pastel Eyeshadow: Keep your eyes shimmery in the summer heat with a pastel eye shadow that’s holographic in tone! The cool colors will have you looking pristine even on the most humid of days, and this eye make-up’s beautiful sheen will leave passers-by dying for a second glance at your eye-catching look. Try the Kat Von D palette, available at Sephora, for a stunningly shimmery look this summer.

2. Natural-Looking Lip Stain: If you’re ready to go a little more natural for the warmer months, try Generation G Lip Stain, a matte finish look that enhances your natural lip color instead of completely covering it up. Best of all, it rejuvenates your lips and applies like a lip balm, so it’s perfect to enhance your pout when you want to look divine but not dolled up – think a summer-time walk through the woods with your partner or a Fourth of July cookout with family. Celebrate the summer and your own natural beauty with this great lip stain, available on their website for under twenty dollars.

3. An Amazing Moisturizer: With the heat of the summer, moisturizing becomes a priority. Try La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV for a formula made especially for enhancing your skin that was a full five years in the making! This special formula contains prebiotics, a type of bacteria that’s great for your skin and helps it build up a better barrier against dirt and dry skin. Best of all, it has built-in UV protection, so you don’t have to worry about getting a sunburn on your face while you’re out enjoying the summer sun.

4. A Must-Have Toner: Although Thayers Witch Hazel may look and sound like an old-timey beauty treatment, in reality this is a modern-day wonder.

For a toner that does just about everything and will keep your skin smooth and sensational this summer, grab up a bottle of Thayers Witch Hazel, available on Amazon Prime starting at eleven dollars.
