Beat the July heat with summer finds in red, white and (kind of) blue.


Marc Jacobs Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator
Whether you’re touching up at a pool party or getting ready for a night out, this portable and easy-to-use highlighter stick (in a universal shade) offers the perfect summer glow. Apply it with the Marc Jacobs Shape Contour and Blush Brush or use your fingers along your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow. $44; Sephora


BeautyBlender Red Carpet
If you’re not already a fan of this cult-classic beauty tool, be sure to check out this limited-edition red cosmetic sponge that will quickly become the favorite item in your makeup bag. Apply anything from primer, foundation and concealer to powder and cream blush fast and flawlessly. $20; Sephora


OPI I Am What I Amethyst
For a different spin on a patriotic manicure, opt for this light blue/lilac shade from the brand’s SoftShades Pastels 2016 collection. I love that it’s more neutral than bright cobalt and will look great with a tan! $7–$10; Amazon, Target and Ulta


Lancôme Juicy Shakers
The first pigmented lip oil treats your lips like a balm while delivering a touch of color. Shake the bottle like a cocktail shaker to mix the nourishing oils with the pigment, then apply with the soft cushion applicator for a non-sticky shine. Bonus: They smell and taste delish! Current favorites include Cherry Symphony (pictured), Meli Melon and Mangoes Wild. $21; department stores
