These New Makeup & Skin Goodies Will Give You A Major Vacay Glow



Glowing skin is coveted year-round, obvi, but there’s something about the first hint of warm weather that makes us want to double down on our gleaming game. We’re talking about foundation that has you looking positively radiant, juicy body moisturizers that offer the perfect amount of dew factor, and nourishing sunless tanners that make it look like you’ve been lapping up sunshine in the tropics — even if you’ve barely been outside the last few weeks. To jumpstart that summer glowy goddess life, start with these top picks.

1. CAY SKIN Isle Glow Face Moisturizer with SPF 45 and Niacinamide, $32

Winnie Harlow’s new beauty brand, CAY Skin, debuted at the end of March ’22 with three sun care products. Our current fave is the Isle Glow Face Moisturizer with SPF 45 and Niacinamide, $32, a silky and illuminating SPF that packs 45 SPF. It looks gorgeous on bare skin, or you can use it underneath your go-to foundation for a hint of glowy oomph.

2. Kopari Beauty Sun Shield Body Glow Gel SPF 50, $36

This innovative body sunscreen has received some major hype on social media since it launched a few weeks ago. After testing it out, we can confirm it’s that good. The sunscreen has a unique gel texture that glides onto skin without any greasiness, plus it’s infused with shimmery particles that’ll have you sparkling in all the right ways under the sun.

3. WISHFUL Yo Glow AHA & BHA Facial Enzyme Scrub, $39


For that skin-deep glow, you’ll want to add an exfoliating product to your skincare regimen this season. WISHFUL’s Yo Glow AHA & BHA Facial Enzyme Scrub, $39, features a blend of pineapple and papaya enzymes, AHAs, and BHA to gently chemical exfoliate and nix dullness. It also gently physically exfoliates with cellulose for smooth, even skin.

A little dab of highlighter here and there can make all the difference between a dull complexion and “who is she?” energy. Makeup Revolution’s new Glow Beam Light Strobe Cream, $5, doesn’t hold back on the glow; it instantly adds illumination wherever you apply it. You could even try adding a touch to your body lotion for glazed perfection.

5. Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Serum Foundation, $34

If you’re in the market for a new foundation that’ll deliver the glowiest skin of your life, you must try Danessa Myricks Beauty’s Yummy Skin Serum Foundation, $34. (We won’t take no for an answer on this one.) Available in 26 shades, this medium-coverage foundation also acts as a skincare product that nourishes your skin. Jojoba oil moisturizes and softens, hyaluronic acid instantly plumps and smooths, and squalane helps balance.

6. IT Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation + Glow Serum with SPF 40 and Niacinamide, $42

Powder blushes have their time and place, but for that glowy glazed aesthetic opt for a cream formula instead. Que Morphe’s new Blush Balm Soft-Focus Cream Blush, $12. This moisturizing, highly pigmented formula blends easily into the skin and won’t budge even in the most hot and humid weather.

8. Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self-Tanning Oil, $39

This new sunless tanner from Josie Maran delivers the look of perfectly bronzed skin without the gnarly sun damage. Like the brand’s other products, argan oil is a shining star in this formula, accompanied by coconut water and aloe vera. It soaks into the skin quickly so you don’t have to do that whole naked “wait until it dries” dance, plus the tan develops within four hours so you can re-up as needed.
