The official coming of summer has us embracing a newly pared-down routine—streamlining our overstuffed makeup bags in favor of multitasking options that channel the almost-bare mood of the season. Translation: If you’re still using the same creamy, medium-coverage foundation you swore by all winter, it’s time to lighten up. Fortunately, the newest wave of beauty balms and color correctors—more commonly known as BB and CC creams, respectively—pack a checklist of benefits into a single tube while remaining virtually invisible on the skin for straight-from-the-beach touch-ups. Chanel CC Cream’s featherweight, pigment-evening formula provides SPF 50 along with anti-aging peach extract and moisturizing hyaluronic acid. Klorane’s soothing cornflower BB eye cream relieves puffiness and blurs lines—ensuring eyes remain as bright as their cloudless, sun-drenched surroundings—while IT Cosmetics’s supernaturally luminous offering leaves skin with the kind of glow that rivals a good facialist’s work.
