Beauty selections ideal for beach or barbecue.

From face masks to facial cosmetics, summer is a great time to “lighten up” by highlighting cheeks, adding a pop of color to lips or incorporating products that feature natural ingredients to smooth skin or ban sweat. According to Kelli J. Bartlett, director of artistry at Glamsquad, New York, “Masking is my go-to for getting a flawless glow this time of year. I prefer a hydrogel mask because it conforms to the face better – my favorite are sheet masks.” 

She added, “Right now, women are looking for color payoff and vibrant colors. They are also loving palettes or complimentary colors that are grouped together to make beauty easily accessible and digestible. For the cheeks, a cream blush is a quick fix to achieve a warm, dewy glow … it’s such a simple way to get the gorgeous, natural looking glow you’re looking for.”
