NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.

Guerlain · Terracotta Chic Tropic Sun Light Duo Bronzing Powder

 

For Summer 2017, Guerlain has created Terracotta Chic Tropic Sun Light Duo Bronzing Powder Face & Décolleté, a limited edition version of their iconic 03 shade that comes in the most precious-looking tin. From the brand that has literally written the book on sporting the most natural-looking bronzer, this little lovely will not only see you through the sweltering heat, but help you carry the glow well into the cooler months ahead — although I’m going to pretend that that’s not happening any time soon.

NARS · Highlighting Bronzing Collection Summer 2017

 

NARS is kicking off the season with a bang; introducing the Highlighting Bronzing Collection for Summer 2017, consisting of the Bord de Plage Palette and three new Velvet Shadow Stick shades. I don’t know about you, but looking at this group has me thinking that all I need add is a quick swipe of mascara and some lip balm, and BAM — Summer look mastered. PS: I wouldn’t say no to a beach thrown in as well …
