Summer is the season that we wait for all year long. A chance to channel our inner boho babes with beachy hair and makeup so natural and light, it looks like we rolled out of bed looking this fabulous. Of course, we also need a little bit of help to achieve such carefree vibes. The reality is that if we don't have proper beauty regimens or cake on too much makeup, we run the risk of looking like we just ran a marathon or red from a sunburn. With all of us standing front row, ready to dish out however much money it takes to prevent the latter circumstances, we've got your back
