When it comes to summer beauty, I try to avoid as many liquid or cream-based facial products as possible. After all, too many melt-prone layers (with the addition of sweat and sunscreen, of course!) make for a goopy summer look that hardly comes across as “golden goddess.” As a result, I usually try to battle the additional summer moisture with more powder-based products. However, Vincent Longo’s Hydro Stick makes me willing to make an exception. This lightweight, solid bronzer/highlighter stick is actually water-based, so it glides on wet with a cooling sensation for ultimate blendability. As a result, skin is dewy and ever-so-subtly tanned, making contouring ridiculously easy without feeling like you’re piling on way too much makeup on a hot summer day. If you’re blessed with flawless skin and can go bare-faced otherwise, this is the perfect one-stop product for getting your summer glow on, or if you’re like me and still plan to keep up your daily primer-foundation-powder routine despite the sweltering weather, Vincent Longo’s handy stick won’t drag you down!
