Your lip gloss doesn’t have to be a sticky mess. A good lipgloss can not only provide a plump pout but can keep lips looking and feeling moisturized. Nudestix offers a lip glace that’s a tinted lip gloss to give you the gloss look without the stick.

Glowing skin

If you prefer to skip powdered highlighters and prefer a glow-from-within look, it would be wise to go for an all-over glow from a foundation. MAC Cosmetics Studio Radiance face and body foundation provides a natural, radiant glow with the benefit of being waterproof to withstand the summer fun in the sun.
