It's no sweat, literally
One of the most challenging parts of feeling and looking your best during the hot summer months is managing sweat. We all do it, but it doesn’t have to ruin your day or your outfit — thanks to two new products from Megababe. Their "Bust Dust" is a talc-free powder infused with lavender and other essential oils that will keep your boob sweat in check (seriously!) and "Thigh Rescue" is a genius deodorant-like product that helps prevent chafing.
Bust Dust, $16, Megababe
Thigh Rescue, $14, Megababe
Prime, set, match
A gorgeous summer day is a great excuse for a get-together, but the last thing you want to stress about is your makeup melting and sliding out of place. With formulas ranging from "DeSlick" to "Self-Adjusting," Urban Decay's new primer collection targets specific needs while their "Chill" setting spray features a time-release technology that will cool the surface of your skin to help keep makeup put for up to 12 hours.
And if you want a little extra UV protection on the go, check out Kate Somerville's new "UncompliKated" SPF 50 setting spray or Supergoop's latest "Mineral Invincible Setting Powder" which features a refillable brush component that allows you to re-up on your sun protection without ruining your makeup.
Chill Setting Spray & Primers $15 & up, Urban Decay
‘UncompliKated’ SPF50 setting spray $38, Kate Somerville
SPF 45 setting powder $30, Supergoop
Cool to the touch
It doesn’t get any cooler than this! Nature Republic’s "Ice Puff Sun" is a Korean beauty cult favorite that helps protect and smooth skin with a cool sensation. It not only feels refreshing, it also helps even skin tone and soothe skin with calendula extract. Simply shake the container a few times before pumping the spray onto the applicator puff and then blend onto skin.
Ice Puff Sun SPF50+, $25.90, Nature Republic
Blot in on, girl
There’s nothing worse than catching a glimpse of yourself in the mirror in the summer only to be blinded by shine. Luckily, makeup maven Kat Von D and NYX Cosmetics have come out with ultralight blotting powders in a range of shades so that every woman can achieve a mattified look without the chalky white residue left by traditional powders.
