We continue our Summer Shimmer Series with a focus on eyes, lips and cheeks. We busy gals love a good creamy bronze eye shadow or slightly sparkly gloss for a quick all-one-color look that’s perfect for sipping seltzer by the pool. In the dog days of summer, we beat the heat by using products that give us dewy, lightly peach-y cheeks that help us look refreshed even when we’re kind of sweaty!

We need nudes! And these Stunna Boss Nudes Lip Gloss will satisfy your need to be nude (we hope).

We fail to find a more gorg summer extended bronze palette than this one from Kylie Cosmetics. Literally every shade to sparkle like the sun itself, this one palette will take you from day to night in one shot.
File Under Products We Love: Stila’s Twin Cheeks Duo
But seriously the dark color blends in just like the sun would from a natural tan on lighter tones, and the highlighter works for any cheek color for a strobe light effect. Dazzling!
Benefit’s The Cheekleaders Squad
The perfect summer palette for someone who is into minimal makeup, perhaps a teen or even your mom. Subtly pretty, this one compact will get you from game night to spotlight.
We praise IMAN for these inexpensive but truly amazing lip glosses. At inexpensive drugstore prices of $8 for each tube of gloss, you can get one in Crystal AND one in Chocolate Diamond, and then get two for your mama and your sister too. We weren’t expecting much, but quickly found that the shade Crystal gives the perfect shine as a solo product OR on top of your favorite lip color for extra slick, but well-conditioned lips.
4 truly stunning highlighters from Glossier that you can use anywhere on the face! With an applicator to place it precisely on the browbone or cheekbone, and in a formula that is easy to layer over foundation to boot!
What more can we ask for in a shimmer for the whole face?
