It won’t truly feel like summer until you swipe on some playful colored mascara, and this bright shimmery purple formula from Chanel’s latest beauty collection is as glam and cool as they get. As always this mascara won’t budge—even with a cannonball into a pool—and it hydrates and conditions lashes simultaneously too. $30

2. Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen
This is the ultimate no-mess, no-hassle SPF. Along with dishing out nourishing vitamin E, this broad-spectrum spray comes out in a sheer mist and dries without any oily finish or residue. It also comes in SPF 15, 50 and 70, so pick your poison and kick those damaging rays to the curb. $16

3. iS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum
This is a little bottle you’ll want on you daily. A potion heavy in hyaluronic acid, Hydra Cool Serum is extremely moisturizing and also anti-acneic and soothing. It does what it says, cool, so it feels great as a hydrator in the morning and also provides comfort after a sunburn or other skin irritation. $55

4. Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Muse
If you’ve been watching trends even a little bit, you know a hot coral lip is in. Achieve just that—complete with a super shiny finish—using one of Hourglass’ latest shades: Muse.

5. Essie Nail Color in Urban Jungle
Essie’s summer collection is full of vibrant, eye-catching hues, but it also contains Urban Jungle, an “alabaster orchid” shade they call irresistible.
