Named a top makeup artist by Martha Stewart Weddings and a top wedding hairstylist by BRIDES, Claire Balest wants to make sure you’re using the best products during the summer with her summer beauty list. We have absolutely adored having Claire and her team on some of our favorite weddings, her style and approach to beauty is impeccable. Being smooth, glowing, and natural are her top priorities during these hot months, and we are going to let you know how she achieves just that!
R+CO MOON LANDING ANTI HUMIDITY SPRAY
Claire likes to tame her hair during the summer with this hair care line. She suggests this product for anyone that deals with frizz from the inevitable humidity. It smells great, feels light, and is perfect for the hot summer months!
NATUROPATHICA : MANUKA HONEY CLEANSING BALM, GOTU KOLA INTENSE REPAIR BALM, LAVENDER PROTECTIVE MOISTURIZER SPF 17.
Through her connection with Barbara Close, the founder of Naturopathica, Claire fell in love with mixing beauty and holistic health together. Keeping your skin dry is tough to do when the heat is soaking up the moisture in the air, and this product will leave your skin glowing skin from the inside out.
NARS PURE RADIANT TINTED MOISTURIZER
This foundation is always on Claire’s favorites list during the warmer and more humid months we have here in the south. While it has the coverage you’re looking for, she says it also has a weightless feel that will keep your skin easy and breezy in the heat.
SARA HAPP THE LIP SCRUB in LEMONADE
Claire suggests exfoliation in all forms during the summer, adding that most people forget about loving their lips. This scrub will leave your lips soft and healthy. Just don’t forget to follow up with something hydrating, like a lip balm, afterwards.
RODIN LUXURY LIP + CHEEK OIL
Claire wants you to glow which is why she suggests Rodin Lip and Cheek Oil as an essential in your makeup bag. You have five shade options, and she has been loving the Berry Baci for a slight wash of rosy pink on her lips and cheeks.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY in LOST CHERRY
Clear skin and a bright lip is an easy makeup look to try. Claire knows you would probably prefer soaking up the sun and salt water than be in front of the mirror, doing your makeup. Mix this stunning lip color into your routine for an easy way to make a statement.
