6 Summer Beauty Finds To Keep Using All Year Round

As we say goodbye to summer and get ready for cozy sweater weather and pumpkin spice lattés (admit it, you love them), we know it’s time to transition our makeup bags and skincare routines as well.

We’re swapping out our vivid coral nail polishes for deep burgundies and our lightweight gel moisturizers for rich, nourishing creams, but there are some products we’re not ready to part with yet. They might have made their big debut for summer, but we’ll be reaching for these six summer essentials all year round (and you should too)!

  • 1 of 6 Coppertone ClearlySheer SPF 50 Face Lotion
  • Coppertone ClearlySheer SPF 50 Face Lotion
  • Coppertone ClearlySheer SPF 50 Face Lotion, $8.49

    Wearing sun protection all year round is SO important—especially on your face and especially if you want to dial down early signs of skin aging. Coppertone’s ClearlySheer SPF 50 Face Lotion* has been on heavy rotation all summer thanks to its lightweight, oil-free formula that is great for those with sensitive skin. Makeup wears beautifully over it, making it an easy first step in your beauty routine any day of the year (even if it’s snowing outside).

    Available at drugstores. For more info, visit coppertone.ca.

  • 2 of 6 Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray
  • Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray
  • Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray, $31

    Oily skin doesn’t only happen during the summer—many people out there have to battle mid-day shine and makeup meltdowns no matter what the weather is like. In fact, I find that between seasons, my skin gets extremely oily as it transitions through changing weather.

    This mattifying setting spray locks down makeup for all-day wear and helps to keep shine at bay. It’s alcohol-free, quick-drying (without actually being dehydrating) and a great way to mattify the complexion without piling on powder.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 3 of 6 Sephora Collection Dusk Golden Hour Highlighting Powder
  • Sephora Collection Dusk Golden Hour Highlighting Powder
  • Sephora Collection Dusk Golden Hour Highlighting Powder, $16

    If you could put magic hour in a palette, this would be it. The peachy-pink highlighter can be worn solo or layered with your go-to blush or bronzer. It has a velvety texture that helps build luminosity on the skin—and let’s be honest, that magic hour glow looks amazing no matter what time of year.

  • 4 of 6 Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30
  • Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30
  • Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30, $42

    Fading foundation is a serious concern no matter what time of year it is, but nobody wants a face full of heavy makeup or drying powders either. This new addition to the brand’s iconic Double Wear franchise has a lighter, fresher texture while still delivering 24-hour wear. It offers medium coverage, SPF 30 protection and it feels ultra comfortable on all skin types without needing setting powder to make it stay put.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 5 of 6 L’Oreal Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser
  • L’Oreal Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser
  • L’Oreal Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, $7

    This innovative clay-to-mousse cleanser helps to purify skin and banish shine without over-drying (a difficult feat), which is particularly important during the winter for those with oily or combination skin. The blend of kaolin and Moroccan clays, eucalyptus extract and montmorillonite—a kind of clay that soothes irritated skin—leaves skin feeling fresh and looking matte without feeling tight.

    Available online at ulta.com.

  • 6 of 6 Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow Moisturizer
  • Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow Moisturizer
  • Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow Moisturizer, $40

    This glow-enhancing moisturizer may not look very exciting right out of the tube, but it contains encapsulated tan pigments to leave skin with a sun-kissed look as it hydrates. It’s a very unique shade, a bit more pink than your typical bronzing lotion, which leaves skin with a touch of warmth and like you just spent the day in the sun—and that will be a nice thought in the middle of winter.

    Available online at nordstrom.com.
