You might be Spring cleaning your heart out, but if your empty makeup bags are no longer bringing you joy, we bet Marie Kondo herself would be OK with a little shopping. Luckily, May has a plethora of new products in store, like jelly-textured primers that melt into your skin, sheer balm blushes that refresh your complexion, and shimmery cream highlighters to enhance your warm-weather glow. Need a new mascara? We’ve got two that are guaranteed to get you fluttering your lashes at the lifeguard in no time.
Huda Beauty Not Your Mama’s Panty Hose All Over Body Highlighter
Using a body brush (Huda Beauty sells one separately), you can buff the body shimmer onto every inch of your body to give you a glow that makes you look like you’ve spent the day wading on the edge of a clear water beach.
Kylie Cosmetics Kybrow Brow Pomade
With an angled brush, I can take my little hairs from Bruce Banner to the Incredible Hulk in no time flat (but, you know, in a stylish way.) The staying power is amazing and doesn’t wear off throughout the day despite my oily skin.
Burberry Beauty Cat Lashes Mascara
Surprisingly, the Burberry Beauty Cat Lashes Mascara ($30) is the exception: it’s equipped with plastic bristles that grab every last lash,
but with hourglass shape that add definition and make my eyes pop with just a few swoops.
NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer
To pick up this product, you literally have to scoop it out of its jar, apply it to your face, and watch as the jelly pieces melt into your skin.
It feels immediately hydrating and refreshing and leaves you feeling sticky, plumped, and ready for foundation.
Becca Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Primer
Becca Cosmetics Skin Love Collection, the Brightening and Blur Primer ($39). This silky, skin-smoothing primer delivers moisture and radiance for flawless makeup application. It’s formulated with antioxidants, mango butter, bamboo and rice extract, honey, and hyaluronic acid to protect, refine, and hydrate during wear.
