While many of us have barely been wearing makeup over the past year—there’s something to be said about bare-faced look —these May launches have us re-organizing our collection and making room for newcomers. Summertime makeup looks, here we come!
Bite Beauty Daycation Whipped Blush ($32)
For a creamy pop of color, pat this whipped blush on the tops of your cheekbones. We like adding a touch of the formula to our eyelids for a monochromatic look that screams summer.
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink ($21)
The newest lipstick in Lancôme’s lineup, this semi-matte formula is both lightweight and long-lasting. Plus, all 13 shades are infused with rose extract to leave the pout feeling smooth and supple.
Laura Geller Matte Maker Advanced Invisible Oil Blotting Powder ($28)
Once you’ve finished applying your makeup, blot this mattifying powder over the center of your face to cancel out oiliness, add a filter-like effect to the skin, and lock in your look.
Il Makiage Moonstruck Face Palette
A baked bronzer, a baked blush, and two baked highlighters are what make this palette summer-ready, but the blendable, oil-infused formulas are what make it vanity-worthy.
Sigma Beauty Ambiance Eyeshadow Palette ($49)
Complete with 14 matte, shimmer and metallic shades, this palette imitates the highly sought-after golden-hour glow. No matter what look you’re going for, this must-have has your back.
Pat McGrath’s first-ever blush range is exactly what you would expect if you’ve tried the makeup artist’s other products: luxurious. Starring nine different soft-touch pigments, this long-wear formula can top off any look with a bang.
Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Eye Brightener ($25)
Hydrating, brightening and blurring, this concealer and brighter in one hides a restless night and gets your under-eyes ready for the day in just one swipe. Plus, the line comes in 16 shades, including four color-correcting shades.
Nudestix Lash Lengthening Mascara ($28)
Known for their concealer sticks, the brand has ventured into a new realm: mascara. This one is formulated with a four-percent tri-peptide booster complex to not only add some va-va-voom, but also make the lashes 11-percent longer and 15-percent thicker over time.
RÓEN Mood4Ever Eyeshadow Palette ($46)
Whether you’re standing at your bathroom mirror or glamming up elsewhere, this versatile palette works for a night out, a quick Zoom meeting, a mid-morning brunch or an everyday look. Our favorite part? The formula is somewhere between a cream and a powder, so the glide factor on these shades is out of this world.
Urban Decay All Nighter Loose Setting Powder ($29)
Like their iconic All Nighter Setting Spray ($33) locks in makeup for a full 12 hours, this loose powder doesn’t let your look budge. It’s softening and silky without setting into pores or lines, so if you’re looking for fresh, natural-looking skin, this staple is for you.
PYT Beauty Glow Me Liquid Eyeshadow ($18)
There’s nothing we dislike more than a liquid eyeshadow that creases, dries too quickly and requires layers upon layers in order to show on the lid. This easy-to-use shadow, however, is comfortable to wear, easy to use, buildable and bright.
MAC Cosmetics Love Me Liquid LipColour ($24)
Featuring a hydrating formula—included in the bottle is shea butter, coconut oil, argan oil, and cucumber extract—and 12-hour wear, this customizable lipstick-turned-stain is a must-try.
about-face Daytripper Light Lock Stick ($25)
This stick highlighter, which now comes in two new limited-edition shades, is loaded with light-refracting pearls and smoothing olive oil for glide. We like to add this to the tops of our cheekbones for a holographic effect that everyone wants to steal.
Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Setting Powder ($64)
Run, don’t walk to get your hands on this new long-lasting, glow-enhancing powder inspired by the classic (and utterly gorgeous) Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($64). We can’t decide which one we love more.
Lorac Holy Lash Volumizing Mascara ($22)
Transform your lashes from short and light to dark and wispy with a few combs of Lorac’s newest addition to the family, which is infused with a blend of shea butter and vitamin E to hydrate and protect all throughout wear.
Haus Laboratories PhD Hybrid Lip Oil Stain ($24)
While we love a bright, pigmented lip color, having a staple product in our bag that gives us a light hint of color is essential, too. This one—we’ve been carrying it everywhere—is infused with plant-derived ingredients and delivers that moisturizing, sheer finish we can’t live without.
Jane Iredale Glow Time Blush Stick ($38)
Creamy, radiant, easy-to-use, and compact, this blush stick gives our cheeks the summer-esque pop of color they crave and makes us look more awake instantly.
Deck of Scarlet Dual Drama Liquid Eyeliner ($28)
Hydrolyzed keratin and peptides are what makes this eyeliner vanity-worthy—not only do the hard-hitting ingredients lift the lashes at the root, but they visibly improve eyelash volume, too.
Benefit Hoola Glow Shimmer Powder Bronzer ($30)
A spin on the cult-classic matte Hoola Bronzer, this glowy rendition features a finely-milled shimmer that blends beautifully over the skin for a fresh, sun-kissed bronze.
