Add these warm-weather beauty essentials to your beauty bag rn

As the temps rise and the days get longer, it's time to shake up your beauty routine and embrace the good vibes of warm weather. Whether you'll be chilling poolside, biking around your neighborhood or simply lounging in a window seat soaking up the sunshine, these essential beauty products will keep you looking (and feeling) fab all season long.

A good sunscreen

ShadeDrops, $36

Let's kick things off with the most important warm-weather essential: SPF! Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is essential year-round, but it's especially necessary during the sun-drenched days of spring + summer. Look for a lightweight, broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection (we heart Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Mineral Milk Sunscreen, $36). And apply it Every. Single. Day. (Yep, even if it's cloudy or raining.) 

A hydrating facial mist

Timeless, $16

When the heat is on, there's nothing more refreshing than a hydrating facial mist (like the Timeless Skin Care HA Rose Extract Spray, $16). Packed with nourishing ingredients like rose water, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, these magical mists instantly will quench your skin's thirst. 

A tinted moisturizer

Saie, $36

Say goodbye to heavy foundation and hello to lightweight coverage: A tinted moisturizer is perfect for those warm summer days when less or more. They basically offer the perfect balance of hydration and sheer coverage.

Choose a formula with SPF protection (like Saie Slip Tint, $36) to keep your skin shielded from the sun's rays. Bonus points if it's packed with skin-loving ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants to nourish and protect your complexion.

A waterproof mascara

Maybelline, $13

We all know that warm weather = pool days + sweaty beach volleyball tournaments. That's where waterproof mascara comes to the rescue (aka no more panda eye!). Try Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara ($13) for a fluttery fringe that'll last through your swan dives.
