Op-Ed: 2022 Summer Makeup Essentials

If you’re anything like me, my heart rate spikes whenever a new summer product hits the market. The summer season is full of emerging makeup trends and products to get you looking glowy and sunkissed for the summer festivities to come. Full coverage foundations, heavy cream moisturizers, and dark red lipsticks are replaced with light and breathable complexion products and creamy blushes and lipsticks that give you a sun-kissed look that everyone is dying to have. With summer’s bright bikinis, sand-filled sandals, and flowy sundresses, consider these products to complete your summer essentials.
