Here at R29 HQ, the days after Memorial Day bring a whole slew of messengers—meaning our beauty closet is brimming over with brand-new shimmers, glosses, and lotions. While the avalanche of stuff may be hard to sort through, we're doing our best to make sense of it all.
So, we figured there's no time like the present to serve up a no-fuss beauty list of Big Apple summer must-haves, handpicked by our very own New York editor, Annie Georgia Greenberg. We've got a light moisturizing balm to keep your skin soft without getting greasy, a perfect illuminator to replace your heavy foundation, and, oh yes, deodorant that keeps you smelling fresh all day (seriously). Sure, you may not be able to halt the climbing thermometer, but, with Annie's help, you can be better equipped to beat the heat.
