From the perfect outfit to makeup that feels light and fresh, summer is all about being easy and functional without sacrificing fashion and style. Now is the time to put those heavy foundations on the shelf and replace them with products designed to give you a flawless seasonal glow without the dangers of too much sun.
At Salon Navid in downtown Andover, Skincare Specialist and Makeup Artist Saghi Bozorgzad was kind enough to share four of her favorite skin and makeup products for the warm summer days that will (hopefully!) soon be here.
Everyone wants to look effortlessly radiant after a long winter spent indoors but where to start? The name of this first product says it all – Glo Body Oil by Finn & Co. This lightweight, amazingly non-greasy oil is super hydrating, and while it works for year-round use, it also makes for a great summer moisturizer whether out of the shower or out of the pool. It has a light scent and you can even use it on your face if you choose.
Jane Iredale’s Tantasia All Natural Skin Tanner will give you a picture-perfect tan without having to sacrifice your time or your skin to the sun. This product goes on smooth like a lotion and has a refreshing citrus scent, leaving no hint of the dreaded “self-tanner smell” often found in other sunless tanning creams.

A main goal of a summer makeup routine is to look sun-kissed and beachy without wearing a lot of actual makeup. “Everyone wants to look dewy and pretty but no one wants to look overly made up” explains Bozorgzad. To achieve this, she favors the Neo-Setting powder by Kevyn Aucoin, a three in one setting powder which can also double as an eyeshadow base. Use this powder to achieve the look you desire, from matte to satin to glowing depending on how much you apply. Another popular product is the Sunlit Bronzer by Becca, which gives wearers the look of just having stepped off the beach. This bronzer comes in a travel friendly compact and five colors that promise to never leave you looking orange.
