JERGENS NATURAL GLOW
Andrea Lavinthal, Style Director: It’s the time of year when I start saying “this will look good with a tan” about every piece of clothing I buy. But I’d never bake in the sun to get bronzed. Instead, I apply this lotion and in three days, my skin has the perfect amount of color. Plus, they’ve updated the formula so there’s no more stinky sunless tanner scent.

MAC PREP + PRIME
Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: I’m doing my own makeup for an outdoor wedding in Florida this June, which means I need something that will keep my face from burning but isn’t a shine-inducing, greasy sunscreen. This stuff does the trick, plus it’ll stop my makeup from melting off my face before my friends exchange their vows. (And yes, I plan to share with the other bridesmaids.)

BUMBLE AND BUMBLE SURF SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
Brittany Talarico, Associate Editor: The line’s Surf Spray has been a staple in my hair care arsenal for years since it’s the only thing that gives my stick-straight hair beachy waves. I recently tried the companion shampoo and conditioner, and when combined with the spray, I like to think my strands look straight-off-the-sand.
BUY IT: Bumble and bumble Surf shampoo, $24, conditioner, $25 (available in NYC salons now and at Sephora in late May)

PHYSICIANS FORMULA SUPER BB CREAM
Zoë Ruderman, Senior Style Editor: Wearing foundation in the summer is like going to the beach in UGGs: uncomfortable, sweaty and unflattering. Which is why I’m swapping out my heavy-coverage formula for this lightweight one with SPF. It evens out my complexion, moisturizes and doesn’t make me break out if I fall asleep with it on (not that I’d, uh, ever do that).
BUY IT: Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Cream, $14.95

CHANEL WATERPROOF EYELINER IN SANTAL
Michelle Ward, Writer-Reporter: I love that I can wear this to the beach on a sweltering day without worrying that my eyeliner will be giving me raccoon eyes. And while I usually stick to black liner during the rest of the year, I’m excited to trade in my go-to wintery pencil and lighten things up with this metallic bronze shade.
BUY IT: Chanel Stylo Yeux waterproof eyeliner, $30

BITE LIP LAYERS
Jackie Fields, Writer-Reporter: I’m a bold lip girl, but I know that dark shades can be jarring in warmer months. That said, it’s hard for me to give up deep reds cold turkey in the summer. This two-in-one lipstick offers the best of both worlds (and seasons): It has a bright pink, summer-ready color on one end and a classic bold red one on the other.

NARS POLISH IN MADNESS
Pamela Edwards Christiani, Style and Beauty Editor: My next pedicure will absolutely be in this bright shade. Because it’s May, but the weather’s still chilly in N.Y.C. so I love the idea of bringing the heat with my polish color!
