If you're an L.A. local or love beauty, Merle Norman
is a name you know well, and if you don't, well consider this your chance to get some beauty schooling. Family-owned and operated since 1931, this heritage label has gotten a brand-new makeover of its own, and the revamped results are totally gorgeous. After consulting with the gurus behind Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, and Comme des Garçons' perfect packaging, this local line (it's produced right next to LAX) has not only a beautiful new look, but also a ton of products perfect for a SoCal summer. We particularly love the eyeshadow palettes, lip treatments, and eye cream, and with launches in the upcoming months including anti-aging complex emulsions and a nail collaboration with OPI, there's only going to be more Merle Norman to love and use all summer long.

It gets better: We've got a glam giveaway for one lucky reader who loves quality makeup as much as we do. Just tell us in the comments of this story what your ultimate summer beauty look is, and the one we love the most will get seriously hooked up with Merle Norman goodies!
