With the summer coming to a close and fall right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to refresh your hair, skin, and makeup. From a silky, dream-like powder to ward of shine to a lip pigment that stays all day, these products are a must for any editor. Here are the end of summer beauty essentials you need right now.
Eve Lom Cleanser, $60
This unique gel-to-balm formula will cleanse even the most sensitive skin without stripping it of essential moisture. Your skin will be left smooth and nourished. Major bonus: The lecithin in the cleanser will help enhance your skin’s overall condition and appearance. Use this to refresh your complexion after long days (or nights) at the office.
Just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean you can skip out on sun protection. Layer this ultra lightweight formula under makeup (or wear alone) to protect against sun damage and prevent premature aging. It’s suitable for all skin types and won’t clog your pores. P.S. It’s an editor-approved favorite.
If Glossier isn’t on your radar yet, it should be. Their products are simple, easy, and fun. The latest addition to their makeup line is Wowder, a loose powder that will cut shine, blur the appearance of pores, set makeup, and basically make you look really good. And for $22 what’s not to love?
We love the summer (hello, summer Fridays) but it can wreck havoc on your hair. To help get your hair back into tip-top shape, work a dime-sized drop of this repair fluid into damp hair and style as usual. Camellia oil will rejuvenate and restore while advanced hair repair technology will heal split ends.
This matte, liquid pigment is the latest lip product by NARS and you need it in your makeup bag. The innovative, weightless formula glides on smooth and stays put through just about anything (long meetings, happy hour, a dinner date). One of our favorite shades is Save The Queen, a dusty mauve. It’s neutral enough for work but still makes a statement.
If you want to retain your radiant summer glow well into the fall, we’ve found the perfect product for you. BECCA’s iconic formula is enriched with ultra-fine pearls that reflect and refract light, allowing your natural radiance to shine through. Topaz, a beautiful golden bronze, and Rose Gold, a rosy pink with warm undertones, are two of our favorite shades.
