What’s Trending in NYC: City Summer Beauty Finds

It’s summer (if you couldn’t feel it by now), and that means changing up your beauty and skincare routine. We went straight to our favorite beauty expert, Michelle Daquioag of Barneys NY Downtown to give us the lowdown on what’s the latest and greatest, and how to look your best when the temps soar. Here are her faves, and we have to say we want to try them all:

ZIIP
The ZIIP is easily the one and done product for perfect skin; it tightens, lifts, and clears acne through electrical nano currents and multiple facial treatments controlled through an app on your phone. My absolute favorite treatment, and Vital Eyes is the ideal way to prep for the day when you wake up puffy and tired. Four minutes of your morning and you’ve got lifted, tightened, brightened eyes.

True Botanicals Nutrient Mist
Prep, Hydrate, Finish, Refresh – I use the Nutrient Mist from True Botanicalls for all of the above. This mist is the perfect prep for my skincare routine or simply to apply in the middle of a humid NYC day.

Chantecaille Just Skin
I limit my makeup routine in the summer and I start with Just Skin. It gives soft but perfected coverage, spf, and glow and I get the best finish from applying with fingers over brush.

Lilah B Lip & Cheek Duo
Lilah B in general is a brand to simplify your life with slim, elegant packaging and multi use products. The lip and cheek duos come in 8 shades – b.true being my summertime go to.

Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara
I’ve never used the same mascara for too long before jumping to the next best thing – until Longest Lash. Not only have my lashes grown longer and thicker via their peptide complex but they are never dry and finish my natural look off with just the right amount of volume.
