If excessive sweat, dryness, and other summer related skin problems are making it tough for you to pick the right makeup products, look no further than these five brands that have launched new collections to help you up your beauty game this season.
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills
Anastasia Beverly Hills has introduced a vegan, cruelty-free Iced Out collection featuring brow wax, highlighter and lip glosses. Its Brow Freeze is a mess-free, long-lasting and waterproof solution that provides a full-bodied, feathered-looking brow, without a stiff feel, residue or flaking. Its highlighter is packed with golden pigments and is suitable for all-skin tones, offering a multi-dimensional wet effect shine, with the high reflectivity of a liquid and the weightlessness of a powder. Moreover, its Crystal Gloss offers a glass-like finish in one-swipe, hence qualifying for non-sticky, comfortable wear. The flat-paddle shaped applicator easily glides across the lips, delivering the perfect amount of gloss. Buy here.

All you need to do is apply gentle strokes on the lips, and dab the tint on to the apples of your cheeks and blend along the cheekbones, repeatedly to intensify the tint impact. Buy here.
