Switch Up Your Makeup this Summer
Toss: Heavy Foundation
Try: Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
When the weather gets sticky, don't clog your pores by layering on a heavily textured base. Lighten up with a sheer formula that protects your skin from UV rays. To achieve Ali Larter's soft complexion, her makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used Mark's Get A Tint Tinted Moisturizer ($12; meetmark.com). It's lightweight but still imparts a dewy finish and offers ample coverage.
Toss: Powder Blush
Try: A Soft Pastel Cream Formula
Intensely contoured cheekbones have no place at the beach. For Emily VanCamp's fresh-faced look, Amy Nadine layered a cream bronzer with the soft peach Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow blush in Euphoria ($24;barneys.com), blending from the apples of her cheeks to the highest corners of her cheekbones for a natural flush.

Toss: Greige Polish
Try: Tangerine Lacquers
A striped beach tote, oversized shades, and a bright manicure are all you need to get set for summer. Tangerine is Pantone's Color of the Year -- the punchy shade flatters all skin tones, and instantly brightens up any look. Go citrus like Solange Knowles with Sephora's Color of the Year Nail Enamel Set ($24;sephora.com). The four different lacquers allow you to experiment with different finishes while staying on-trend.

Toss: Chalky Matte Lipstick
Try: A Berry Stain
Heavy, matte lip colors and high shine gloss can feel too dramatic for sunny summer days. Opt instead for a long-wearing berry stain like Kate Bosworth's. Her makeup artist Amy Nadine started using the ultra-moisturizing Tarte Lip Tints ($24; tartecosmetics.com) after another client, actress Krysten Ritter, wanted to find an alternative to lip glosses and lipsticks.

Toss: Heavy, Concentrated Sprays
Try: Subtle Fragrance in a Roll-On
The heady fragrances you spritzed on in the fall may be too intense for summer, so pick a lighter scent as the temperature heats up. Rachel Bilson is a fan of Bath Bar's Zen Milk Roll-On ($39; bathbar.com), an airy blend of musk and vanilla with fresh floral notes. Plus, its compact size makes it easy to toss into roomy beach bags and tiny clutches alike.
Toss: Smoky Eyes
Try: Shimmery Gold Lids
We love a dramatic eye but during the summer, complement your sun-kissed skin with a gilded shadow like Jessica Pare's. To give her look the Midas touch, Nadine used Chanel's Quadra Eye Shadow in Eclosion ($58; chanel.com). "To give the color more intensity and staying power, I dampened my eye shadow brush before applying the gold shade along the upper and lower lash lines," she said.
