Now that April’s showers are a thing of the past and we’ve successfully started switching up our beauty regimens thanks to last month’s beauty launches, it’s time to keep our skins looking dewy and hydrated despite the humidity and heat of summer! May’s beauty launches are here and they’ve come to save the day and our hair, makeup, and, of course, your skin routines.
As the clothing layers decrease and we all start showing off more skin, we need to keep it buttery soft, protected from the sun’s harsh UVs, and cleansed after a long day at a picnic with friends or at any socially distanced gatherings. Say thank you RiRi and Fenty Skin, derm-fave SkinCeuticals, and sustainable beauty brand Circumference because each brand has a respective product that will help us achieve all those.
And fewer layers of fabric don’t mean you can leave your face mask at home. While people are getting vaccinated, we are still far from achieving herd immunity. Keeping that in mind, why not work on your summer makeup looks to include palettes that will help you accentuate visible areas while wearing masks and that won’t cause maskne? Enter: Anastasia Beverly Hill’s first face palette ever or Roén Beauty’s new eyeshadow palette. Our masks won’t stop us from wearing MAC’s new Love Me Liquid Lipcolour – yes, we may or may not be hugely influenced by the brand’s new ambassador, Lisa from BLACKPINK.
If you are looking to have more fun with your beauty purchases now that it’s getting hotter out, keep your eyes on this space because we’ll keep updating it to include all the best beauty products coming to the market this month!

If you dropped $$$ on SkinCeuticals iconic Vitamin C then you also need to add the brand’s new sunscreen to your routine. The Daily Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 is formulated to protect against UV rays, while simultaneously helping in evening out your skin tone and instantly brightening and hydrating your skin.
Urban Decay All Nighter Loose Setting Powder
We all know and love Urban Decay’s setting spray and now the All Nighter Loose Setting Powder is joining in on the fun.

Whether you’re a natural blonde and love a good silver and gray look or you achieved your blonde at the salon after seeing Billie and Selena, this product will repair and strengthen your hair and prevent future damage. However, amika doesn’t recommend this product for strawberry or copper blondes. Also, this mask is not meant to be an everyday treatment. Before using it, be sure to consult with your colorist!
