It's no secret that winter and Chicagoans' beauty routines aren't friends. We live for summer, with its sunny days, street fairs, patios, and endless outdoor fun. But, with the change in the weather comes the need for a total overhaul of our medicine cabinets. Living in a city with actual seasons (yay, us!), means that our skin, hair, and bodies have different needs right now than they did during the frosty months.

Click through to see her top beauty picks, then pipe in with your own recs, in our comments section. And after that, bookmark this as your new summertime beauty bible.
