Warm summer days call for bright fragrances, one-and-done products, and, of course, SPF. Take for example Prada’s new Paradoxe fragrance, a warm floral scent with hints of amber that’s sure to dazzle on hot summer nights, or U Beauty’s essential Resurfacing Body Compound, which exfoliates and evens skin for a pool-ready glow. When it comes to makeup, opt for ease. Westman Atelier’s Baby Cheeks Blush Stick is a personal favorite, and adds the perfect flush to cheeks and lips, while Tom Ford’s Bitter Peach Eye Color Quad is all you need for a day-to-night eye look.
