Style Editor’s Fresh Picks: Summer Beauty Essentials

Take a new look at lip color, blush, mascara and fragrance ...

Mallywood color palettes take you from shore to city this summer.

As a style editor, I’m fortunate to welcome many seasonal products that arrive on my desk. Here are a few summer beauty must-haves that caught my attention. Besides wearing good-quality sunscreen products with adequate SPF protection, any woman could benefit from naturally emollient lip color, a hydrating eye mask, effortless cheek and eye color, and a citrusy-fresh bath-and-body scent.

Here’s a roundup of can’t-miss goodies to make your summer fun and fragrant …
