5 Beauty Pros' Summertime Essentials
From Kim Kardashian's derm to Cate Blanchett's colorist, Hollywood gurus reveal their glam must-haves for the final days of the season (and beyond) to keep that vacay glow going.
Summer may almost be over, but we're not quite ready to say goodbye to that elusive "summer glow." (We worked hard for these tans, thank you very much.) Make your relaxed look last as long as possible with these Hollywood-guru-approved tips and tricks. Long live the summer.
1. Bronzed Beauty
For Violet Grey founder Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, Tom Ford’s bronzer compacts (both large and the travel-friendly size) "give that glowy radiance I need without actually bathing under the sun."
Tom Ford Bronzing Powders; $65-$95, at violetgrey.com.
2. Summer Bod
Dr. Harold Lancer’s recommendation to clients (including Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian) for getting beach-bod-ready is twofold: the Lancer Body Method — his trio of products for luminous, even-toned skin from the shoulders down — and a diet packed with leafy greens. "Greens are critical in an anti-aging diet — to get you glowing from the inside out — and easy to pack into a smoothie," says the Beverly Hills-based derm.
Lancer The Method: Body Polish, $60, Body Cleanse, $30, and Body Nourish, $55, at Neiman Marcus, Beverly Hills and lancerskincare.com.

3. Bold Lips
Jennifer Garner’s and Elizabeth Banks’ makeup artist, Fiona Stiles, says a punchy pout "looks so pretty with fresh skin, a touch of cream blush and heaps of mascara." She’s using Surratt Beauty Automatique Lip Crayon in Shocking, "a grown-up bright pink that is very flattering."
Surratt Beauty Automatique Lip Crayon in Shocking; $34, at net-a-porter.com.
4. Hair Protection From Sun and Swim
Negin Zand, colorist to Cate Blanchett and Carey Mulligan, insists on "something that will help protect and maintain your color" after sun exposure, such as Rene Furterer Sun Care No Rinse Moisturizing Spray, which is "hydrating and nourishing after spending the day in the sun."
Rene Furterer Sun Care No Rinse Moisturizing Spray; $24, at Salon Benjamin, West Hollywood and renefurtererusa.com.
5. Signature Scent (above)
Danielle DeMarne, creative and merchandising director for Fred Segal, says fragrance, like skin care, "should be adjusted for the summer months as the heat and weather can change how it smells on your skin." She recommends a customizable fragrance like THE BLEND that can be made "lighter or more intense with the amount of oil you use and it will be unique to the wearer."
