Rimmel's bronzer plays on a different level due to its waterproof nature. It's light and subtle, and will hold up that natural glow when you're on a hike or even at the pool.

Beauty bloggers love this blush for its buildable formula and warm peachy-orange hue that results in a naturally glowing look.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
We love a good stain, and Revlon's Just Bitten is like a balm meets lipstick. Once you apply, the color sets in and lasts for hours with the added bonus of moisturizing elements.

Want brows that are fuller, thicker, and more defined? Of course you do, pencil-thin brows are a thing of the past. Get attention-worthy brows with this duo of pigmented wax and setting powder.
Burt's Bees Lip Balm
When you don't feel like wearing formal lipstick, a tinted lip balm can do the trick. All of the shades are sheer, meaning you'll never be overwhelmed by color and your lips will feel nothing short of extremely nourished.
