As we get closer to summer, beauty routines across the country are going to increasingly rely on skincare to keep us looking fresh-faced and on makeup that brightens while giving us ample glow. To help you find the very best of the new beauty launches, these are the products we recommend.
Known for its iconic range of primers, Smashbox has a new formula to gush over – one that focuses on boosting skin health. Packed with vitamin B, C and E, this lightweight and refreshing gel not only preps the skin for makeup, it also offers an immediate dose of hydration to the skin and brightens the complexion.
If your concern is pigmentation or a dull complexion, then the latest serum from Clarins is your answer. Thanks to superfruit extracts, rose-myrtle and acerola seed, along with vitamin C, this high-performance serum provides double oxygenation to boost cellular respiration. The result? A bright, even complexion that radiates that lit-from-within glow.
Just when we never thought this award-winning serum couldn’t get any better, it did! Packed with all the same ingredients we know and love, the new formula has been upgraded with leading-edge Chronolux Power Signal Technology, which means it has the ability to boost the skin’s cell renewal and collagen production even faster. Think firmer, hydrated, happy skin in record time.
Enhance both your eyes and your beauty shelf with this extremely luxe-looking eye palette from M.A.C’s latest limited-edition Mosaic Masterpiece collection. The nine shades alternate between matte and metallic and consist of warm neutrals and a pop of purple. This highly pigmented palette allows you to create barely there or bold eye looks flawlessly.
Bobbi Brown’s first-ever liquid-to-powder foundation is the ultimate option for those balmy summer days. Waterproof, sweatproof and humidity-resistant, this hybrid formula applies seamlessly and transforms into a self-setting matte powder that leaves the skin looking fresh, radiant and totally shine-free.
