When it comes to finding a covetable cult beauty product that actually works, who better to turn to than fashion’s insiders? These influential editors, supermodels, makeup artists and celebrities have access to the latest and greatest of formulas, so when they swear by something it’s best to listen up. I’ve got the top cult, tried and true beauty finds for summer right here. They include a salt-infused styling spray for sexy textured hair (minus the beach outing and sunburn), a smudge proof liner that stays put when you do happen to be on the beach, and a pearl luminizer for a glow no matter what the state of your skin. Need some serious summer skin recovery? Try out the latest pore-friendly strips. And finally, FINALLY, a one-handed lipstick, because who has time to slow down when there’s so much fun in the sun to be had?!?
This styling spray adds volume and texture to the hair to create a sexy, wind-blown feel. Its salt-infused formula adds fullness, hold, and a cool, matte finish. Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows of that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out). So while Bumble and bumble hasn’t exactly bottled the real thing, they’ve replicated and improved it, including seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance moisture.
This lipstick has no cap, it slides open for easy one-handed application-a luxury for the text obsessed. An innovative and delicately sheer lipstick formula that offers a second skin texture with a long lasting hold. It is creamy, moisturizing, long-lasting, true to color and applies easily…everything I love in a lipstick.
One of my FAVORITE products, Kristen Stewart and Jlo are also fans, this daytime vitamin C serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brightens skin’s complexion. It even lightens dark spots. After 4 weeks of daily use, I am shocked at the compliments I receive about my skin! It truly is an anti aging powerhouse! It is more on the expensive side but since I only use 1-2 drops a day, a whole bottle will last me about 6 months. It’s so important to be on some type of vitamin C serum if you want to keep young healthy skin and fight the signs of aging, sun damage, and brighten all at once!
Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl
For a delectable glow, fancy up with this golden-pink liquid pearl luminizer. Its sheer, light-reflecting formula in a fresh, raspberry scent glides on smoothly for a breathtakingly radiant complexion. Wear it alone for a youthful dewy glow, or over makeup for lustrous “pearlessence.”
STILA Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner
Say goodbye to racoon eye! A melt-proof Makeup Must-Have, this ultra-pigmented liquid liner comes in 15 eye-popping shades that won’t budge, come humidity or high water. I love to use it when I don’t have much time but I want quick, great effect. It really complements the color of your eyes, makes them pop.
HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Bronzer gives skin an instant sun-kissed glow without the sun. Most bronzers are flat and look unnatural. That’s where the Photoluminescent Technology really lends itself to the Ambient Lighting Bronzer. It’s perfect for creating a natural sun-kissed glow. I personally love using Luminous Bronze Light for subtle contouring because it blends seamlessly with the Ambient Lighting Powders and blushes.
It’s the best-selling mascara in the US—a tube is sold every 1.7 seconds! I’ve seen the proof, this pink tube is in all the celebrity makeup artists ‘bag of tricks’. I love how the formula goes on smoothly and you can control the amount of layering you want—quick swipe for a natural look or three to four coats for evening. But what really makes it a cult products (aside from the retro pink and green package) is that for under $5 you can get a brand new tube as often as your heart desires.
