Cosmetic Corner: Cooling and Confident

Dallas is no stranger to warm temperatures, and this heat wave has all of us thanking our lucky stars for air conditioning. Even with the thermostat turned all the way down, you can still feel like you’re putting the hot in hot mess while putting on your makeup and getting ready for the day when temps hit the triple digits. Thankfully, it seems that many of our favorite cosmetic companies feel our pain and have created products that give your skin a cooling effect on contact. We’ve found some of the best products from primers to eye creams to more unusual options like highlighters and hair care products that will leave you feeling as cool as a cucumber all the way into fall.

Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer

Too Faced should have marketed this product as summer in a bottle, because it’s the ultimate summer treat to add to your makeup routine. The cooling effect makes the product feel light on your skin while helping keep your foundation in place. It’s formulated with peach oil, which not only gives it a fresh-picked summery smell, but helps in the mattifying process. A member of our marketing department swears by this product for your hottest and busiest days when you really need your makeup to look flawless for hours.

If you find your skin needing more of a pick-me-up, Milk Makeup’s Cooling Water stick is the cup of coffee your complexion is dying for. Made with seawater and caffeine it’s the perfect boost on those hot and sticky mornings after you stayed out past your bedtime (again).

We can all finally enjoy a dewy makeup look without it being from actual perspiration throughout the summer months.

The peppermint oil and charcoal combination works together to remove impurities in your hair while bringing cooling relief to those with flaky scalps. Fans of this conditioner rave about how lightweight the formula is while still being a powerhouse product in terms of hydration.

It’s inevitable that you’re going to spend a long day or two out in the hot summer sun. As great as it can be to soak in the rays – and the vitamin D – your skin needs a little extra care afterward. This Clean at Sephora certified product re-hydrates your skin with Greek yoghurt, helping to reduce the redness and stinging of those nasty sunburns. Korres recommends keeping this lotion in the refrigerator for an extra cooling effect.

This metallic  primer is pigmented, letting you wear it as a base, a shadow, or a liner without budging all day long. You can pull off some seriously hot looks while keeping your lids cool.

Givenchy Bouncy Highlighter Cooling Jelly Glow

If you’re a highlighter fan, you’ll have to give this unique product a go this summer. It gives you a subtle, golden glow while simultaneously cooling your cheeks, or wherever else you apply it. We’ve heard it’s best to apply with your fingers to really maximize the cooling effects.
