Summer is just around the corner and with the change in season comes the prime time to make a few small tweaks to your beauty arsenal. Thankfully, this year there are some fantastic new beauty products out there, and the best part? They’re available at drugstores, so they will be able to keep money in your pocket for vacation.

To help get you started and load that beauty bag this sunny season, we look at five items you will need to toss in your bag to refresh your summer look.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paints

What’s summer without a bright pop of color? L’Oreal’s Infallible Lip Paints are high-pigment liquid lipsticks that come in a wide range of bright vibrant colors sure to be your go-to statement item of the summer. They’re long-wearing, easy to apply, and are just the right size to tuck in a beach bag or an evening clutch. Another bonus? A bright lip can make you look more awake than you actually are so if you’ve had a little too much summer fun, slicking on one of these bold brights can make you look refreshed even away from the beach.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Makeup Sticks

Wet ‘n’ Wild has really been stepping up their game lately and these new makeup sticks are another win from the very affordable drugstore staple. The sticks come in a concealer, a blush, a highlighter and a contour. Just swipe, blend with your fingertips or a sponge and you’re good to go. And the best part? Because they’re sticks and not liquids they don’t take up precious space in your liquids bag for your carry on at airports. The blush stick can also double as a lip color so these sticks are super versatile.

Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray

If you can’t vacation by the beach that doesn’t mean you can’t have beach perfect hair. Hair stylist to the stars Kristin Ess has her own line of hair care products so you can get celebrity fabulous hair at home. The standout of the line is this salt spray. Truly one of the best on the market, a few sprays of this product and you will look like you just came from the beach and have the most fabulous hair.

Coppertone Clearly Sheer Whipped Sunscreen

Sunscreen as a beauty item? Yes! Protecting your skin not only helps avoid painful sunscreen, but is also a down payment on having good skin longer. This one is lightweight and actually feels good on your skin. It almost feels like you’re not wearing sunscreen at all and because it’s whipped, it’s easy to apply so you’ll have no excuses to not reapply every two hours or after swimming.


Garnier Skinactive Moisture The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer

Even when we are careful and use our sunscreen or if we’ve done a lot of air travel, our skin needs a little extra love in the moisture department. But with summer heat who wants a heavy cream on their skin? This gel-like moisturizer from Garnier packs a huge moisturizing punch without the heavy feel. It’s also loaded with antioxidants so it feels good and is doing good, too.
