Summer is in full swing! So now we’re craving new ways to look and feel our best while having fun in the sun. The TODAY Style Squad's Bobbie Thomas stopped by Studio 1A Thursday morning to share her summer obsessions, including everything you need to look cool, stay hydrated and treat yourself.
Few things can ruin that perfect summer selfie faster than unwanted shine on your face. Hot weather can make it feel like your makeup is melting right off, but you can keep things matte and in control with the right powder.
Marc Jacob's Coconut Setting Powder ($44) sets makeup for up to eight hours. The trick? They use five forms of coconut and cocoa butter that melt into the skin, keeping it hydrated. Becca’s Hyrda-Mist Set & Refresh Powder ($38) has a cooling sensation when applied to the skin and CliniqueFIT Post-Workout Neutralizing Face Powder ($29) takes down redness after a sweat session (or even just a particularly strenuous commute).
