Summer is officially in full swing. Along with new fragrances and endless wardrobe upgrades, beauty trends are at an all-time high. Perhaps your mind goes to peachy blush, green eyeshadow and glass skin or even the rise of lip oils in place of traditional lip gloss. Be that as it may, the warmer months call for a necessary transformation in our makeup routines, where skin tints become our new foundation, pink blushes take on brighter hues and glossy eyes take the place of matte eyeshadow.

While summer's heat often proves to be aggressive, it doesn't mean you have to compromise your makeup. Products like sweatproof bases and glowy SPF can easily combat the sun's sweltering powers and help you achieve the ultimate beauty look in a matter of minutes. While some may think you need a 12-step routine, you can depend on lightweight foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer and a good lippie to help you nail your makeup this season.

Whether you're going on a spontaneous vacation or out for date night, summer is the perfect time to play around with colors and textures that bring more pleasure and fun to your makeup experience. Ahead, discover the best products to execute that dewy, picture-perfect glow and make your routine stress-free.
