Lipstick on the Rim: The Summer 2022 It List


Get your credit cards ready because we’re talking about the only (and, of course, very best) products you’ll need for the summer months ahead. After all, summertime is best done with a pared back beauty routine in tow. No need to spend countless hours on laborious hair and makeup. Think: natural, glowy, bronzy, rosey effortlessness. From SPF with just the right amount of coverage to self-tanners that exfoliate (and much more in-between), Molly and Emese share both their tried-and-true and fresh off the market products they swear by. Here, your summer 2022 beauty lineup, sorted. Happy shopping!

Molly’s Picks

One/Size by Patrick Starr’s setting spray will lock in any makeup for 16 hours with its matte finish. Highly recommended for days on the beach.

Makeup artist Sir John used Milk Makeup’s hydro grip primer on me for the Met Gala. It’s a natural gel formula that locks in hydration (and your makeup). If it’s good enough for Beyonce, it’s good enough for the rest of us!

Dr. Dennis Gross’ glow pads are an oldie but goodie. I love the ones for the body. These are just for your face and gives you the perfect golden glow. No streaks!

Since we use more sunscreen in the summer than all year long we have to make sure we get it off our face! Olehenriksen’s dewtopia night treatment will do just that while it also nourishes and exfoliates. 

I use both Playa’s conditioning spray and leave-in conditioner on myself and my kids (and keep travel sizes too in my bag). They smell like summer in a bottle.”


Emese’s Picks

“I’ve been loving Tower 28 Beauty tinted sunscreen foundation–it gives you a dewy glow.

Saie’s dew blush is everywhere on TikTok right now and lasts all day. It’s a water based gel blush that has a creamy blend-able formula and gives you a healthy flush of seamless color. It looks pigmented but don’t let that deter you.

Gisou, famous for their hair oil is now making a lip oil made with mirsalehi honey and hyaluronic. It naturally creates an instantly smooth and more defined lip (not to mention, enhancing your natural lip color with a great shine).”
