The Beauty Beat: 6/5-6/11

Givenchy, the Ritz and Ayama, oh my.

BEAUTY: June 21 marks the first official day of summer, but neither we—nor Givenchy—could wait any longer. So, to unofficially kick things off, Givenchy made its summer collection hit the beauty counter a little earlier than the big day. And we are so thankful. The line, packed with purples and orange hues, is perfect for heating up the warmer months with bold pops. Standouts include Gelée d’Interdit Balm Soothing Gloss in Electric Purple and Neon Orange ($26.50 each). To give your face an overall glow, try Mister Radiant ($36). The revolutionary new face gel uses tri-colored microspheres to give skin a touch of color. And, don’t leave home without Photo’Perfexion Light ($47). The foundation, with SPF 10, goes on so light it leaves skin feeling nude but looking as flawless as a Photoshopped cover model. The sponge applicator is also sheer bliss.
