I’m sure you love summer for its care free vibe. Bare-faced and flip flops are the standard.  But like many of us you may feel a bit too naked without a touch of makeup.

The good news is award-winning makeup artist Meaghan Smeen is here to help.  A true minimalist, she’s sharing her four must-have summer products for your pretty face.


First start with Anastasia Dipbrow.  It’s  a smudge-free, waterproof gel formula that performs as an all-in-one brow product.  It helps to create clean, defined brows .  It’s perfect for the summer humidity!

Next up her favorite liner. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner made Allure’s Reader’s Choice List for good reason  The brush glides across the lid in a silky, effortless and precise application.  Plus, it’s loaded with a highly pigmented, 24-hour wear formula. ” It just doesn’t move!”

Finish up with mascara.   Meaghan’s favorite is Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara.  It provides extreme volume and a more dramatic look with each coat. The hourglass-shaped brush creates lift and coats every little lash. Go ahead and get wet!  It’s sweat-proof, waterproof and play proof.

Everything Else

Cream sticks are more water resistant than powders and this one product can be used anywhere!   Nars Sheer POP Multiple sticks are her go to!   The iconic multi-purpose stick can be used on the eyes, cheeks, lips and body.

The cream-to-powder color is quick and easy to apply.  It leaves a sheer, natural finish. Perfect for highlighting, sculpting, and warming the skin.  Blend with fingers for a soft, luminous glow.  Meaghan’s favorite shade is Motu Tane. “It looks amazing on everyone!”

Happy Saturday everyone!   Looks like a great beach day!
