Technically summer doesn’t officially start until June 21st, but as far as we’re concerned Memorial Day marks the kick-off to the season. I’m sure you’ve stocked up on at least one new swimsuit, caftan or pair of wedges, but what we really want to know are your go-to summer beauty products?  Sunscreen and sun safety products are an obvious given, but I wanted to share with you some other goodies I’ll be tossing in my beach bag for the perfect, no-fuss, natural beauty look.

When it comes to summer makeup less is more. I love focusing on my lashes & lips. All I’m really looking for is simplicity and staying power.  So it’s a no brainer that my summer choices are multiplEYE™ natural lash-enhancing waterproof mascara & LipSurgence™ natural lip stain in charmed. Luscious lashes and bubblegum pink lips are perfect against sunkissed skin.

Next up are my tresses. When temperatures are crawling into the 90’s the last thing I want to do is sweat under the blow dryer; just the thought makes me cringe. Well, thanks to Fredrick Fekkai’s  Marine Summer Hair, I’ll see my styling tools in September. This misting spray will give you surf-sexy waves, while protecting your hair against the sun, salt water & chlorine. It’s effortless & I love that!

Last but not least, my pick for the perfect summer lacquer to go with all of those open-toe shoes. It’s all about CHANEL’s minty fresh summer shade Nouvelle Vague. Fresh for 2010, this is the ideal summer escape from your traditional pinks and corals. I’m heading for a mani/pedi in this shade tonight to last me through the holiday weekend.

So that’s it for summer-perfect products that are chic & easy.
