Intro - The top 5 summer beauty products you want this summer

With the number of beach days on the rise around San Diego, it’s time we take a look back at our beauty collections. These five editor-approved products will kick-start your season of summer fun, and might even stick with you all year round.

1. Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 from Smashbox

Two major reasons you needed this BB cream yesterday: SPF 35 and “camera ready” right in the name. Smashbox’s BB cream has a strong track record for making skin luminous, smooth and protected from sun damage, an ideal choice for those oily complexions. It’s your best bet in full-coverage that lasts through even the longest of days. $39;

2. Somerville360 Body Tanning Towelettes by Kate Somerville

In one clean swipe, these self-tanning pads apply a dewy bronze color with minimal streaking for on-the-go application ease. The advanced formula works with your skin’s own proteins, so it gradually darkens to a natural, complementary color every time. Each swipe contains tea tree extract, calming cucumber and Vitamin E to condition the skin. Just unfold the towelette and apply in a circular motion. $48 for pack of 8;

3. CND Shellac in Mint Convertible

Break away from boring by taking your summer nail color to the next level. CND, the leader in Shellac polishes, recently released their spring and summer-inspired Open Road Collection. Make sure your mani stands out from the rest with the Mint Convertible color that boasts a mirror shine and lasting stay for two weeks. $25-$40 Shellac manicures at various nail salons;

4. Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Mascara

A waterproof mascara that isn’t a workout to remove? Yes, we’ve found it. The big ol’ conic brush on this Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Extravagant mascara features 580 bristles and keeps lashes perfectly poised through long, hot summer days. Mine even held up through one brutal hour of hot yoga. $24;

5. Estee Lauder Pure Color Cheek Rush

On warm days, makeup should stay creamy and dewy, never cakey or dry. These Estee Lauder cheek gels are your best replacement for the old powder blush that’s been clogging up pores. There are four shades to choose from in this collection: Hot Fuse, Techno Jam, Pink Patent and X-Pose Rose. Simply pump onto fingertips and blend onto your cheeks for a luminous glow that’s lightweight and fresh. $28 each;
