Summer is here and to make sure that you enjoy the season, the Colour team has compiled a list of summer must-have's to help make your lives easier!

Below you will find the top summertime picks of Colour co-founders Debra and Stephanie, as well as summer essential picks from other members of the Colour team! These items were specifically selected to ensure that you ladies fully maximize opportunities for fun, comfort, and low maintenance glam this summer.

Debra's Picks
1. Bite Beauty Liquified Lip- This liquid lip is nourishing and highly pigmented, with a wide selection of colors to choose from.  The product provides a punch of color, all while keeping your lips protected with all-natural ingredients, which is a major key when out in the sun.
2. Pureology "Supreme Control" Hairspray- The perfect hairspray to help combat summer humidity. This hairspray provides a non-stick hold and control that prevents hair from rising.
3. Lily Pulitzer Maxi Dress- The maxi dress is a summertime wardrobe staple and Lily Pulitzer offers a variety of beautiful and vibrant patterns, with something to compliment every skin tone. These dresses allow you to go from hanging out with the girls at brunch to a night out on the town with your loved one, without having to change!

Stephanie's Picks
1. Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Grey- This shade of grey has hints of blue, which compliment brown skin beautifully. It adds a subtle pop of color that's good for running errands, brunching with the girls, and lounging by the pool or beach. Oh, and it's waterproof!
2. Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup - Why? It's sundress season, which means it's time to show off those legs! This life saver covers those annoying scars from childhood, random bruises from scraping the tables, knicks from rushed shaving, and tattoos.
3. Frye Melanie Gold Slip On Sneakers- Because honestly, we all need a cute flat that doesn't require a fresh pedicure to rock.

Staff Picks
1. Drunk Elephant Night Bright Set- Because your skin takes a bit more of a beating than usual in the summertime sun, showing it some extra TLC at home is sometimes necessary. This skincare set has a nourishing Marula Luxury Facial Oil that helps replenish the skin and provides extra moisture!
2. Pastel Adidas Flats- Summertime is about being comfortable and these flats are the perfect combination of sporty, girly, and comfort. These are a go-to for running errands, walking around the house or laying out at the pool.
3. BKR Glass Water Bottle- We still aren't 100 percent sure of all of the negative effects of BPA but we know that it's bad for you, so we are trying to use glass water bottles instead. This BKR water bottle is environmentally friendly, BPA free, and extremely cute, which makes it the perfect summer accessory for your workouts.
