It's been said that a shot-glass-full is the perfect amount of sunscreen to protect your entire body, but who actually carries a shot glass of potentially breakable barware to the beach or pool? We show you how much sunscreen is enough for every day, break down the new FDA regulations, and recommend a product that won't break you out. On Jessica: Sachin + Babi dress. Correction: dice is incorrectly spelled as dices in the video. Apologies for the error.
Half the allure of Summer is all the sweet scents: the ocean's spray, gardens in bloom, and freshly cut grass. While you'll likely get a whiff of all these smells out in nature, the beauty products below mimic the aromas of all the best parts of this season. Even once the warm weather wears off, you'll still be able to hold on to the memories with these fragrant buys.
- Imagine you are standing in the midst of a botanical garden when the roses are in bloom, and you'll call to mind the scent of Korres 24-hour Wild Rose Moisturizing and Brightening Cream ($35).
- For the foodie in you, Elemental Herbology Watermelon and Cucumber Body Moisturizer ($48) captures the summery scents of a backyard barbecue.
- Spritz on Demeter Fragrance in Grass ($39) and you'll recall a picnic in the park on a warm day when the lawn was freshly cut.
- Perhaps you won't make it to an island vacation this season, but Pacifica Coconut Pearls Luminizing Lip Quench ($9) will inspire you to plan one soon.
- Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($25): the scent really is self-explanatory.
- Lemonade is a staple this time of year and you can bring that scent to your bath with the help of these Fresh Lemon Sugar Bath Cubes ($38).
- Remember those water floats that made swimming so much fun? Sniff Oscar de la Renta Sun Protection Stick ($26) to reminisce on unabashedly splashing in the pool.

Home fragrances like candles are one of beauty's more luxurious products, and for good reason. There's nothing better than striking a match, lighting a candle, and settling down for some beauty rest after a long day . . . especially if you've got a candle like Aerin's Sky Flower Candle ($58). Part of Aerin's Home Fragrance Collection, which was created in conjunction with Nest Fragrances, Sky Flower evokes the scent of a lush garden bouquet. Notes of gardenia, tuberose, jasmine, and magnolia mesh playfully with hints of bergamot and bourbon vanilla, making this candle the ultimate buy for floral lovers. And as if that weren't enough, Sky Flower is packaged in a gorgeous box that's more keepsake than clutter. And once the wax is gone, you can use the frosted blue glass holder to house its own floral bouquet, making this a candle that comes full circle.

Last night at the Monsters University premiere in LA, Beth Behrs did a new take on a favorite Summer style. While we're used to seeing the classic milkmaid braid, Beth added even more texture by pinning up two fishtail braids instead. Her stylist Aviva Perea curled her hair in one-inch sections wrapping each piece in opposite directions. Then she used Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo ($5) all over her hair to help add texture. Perea made four braids, two behind each ear. The braids were half fishtail with the ends being regular three-strand braids. She pinned up the braids to frame Beth's blunt bangs and left tendrils around her face to draw attention to the colorful eye makeup.
Her makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg, created the colorful eye makeup with a mix of pink, purple, and burgundy eye shadows to make her blue eyes pop. She started by applying a primer to lids for staying power. The pink shade on Beth's crease is Mark i-Mark Eye Shadow in Luvstruck ($7) mixed with a darker burgundy shade on the outer corners. Greenberg then used a purple hue to line the eyes. Finally, she layered black mascara with YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara in Burgundy ($30). Even though Beth wore this look on the red carpet, it's easily translatable to any Summer soiree this season.

We are upon that other festive time of year, chock-full of weddings and celebrations around the big day. Your Summer months are likely full of engagement parties and weddings. While evening special-occasion makeup is one thing, bridal showers offer a great opportunity for soft and fresh makeup.
For these special afternoons, I prefer a natural and luminous look: flawless for photos but still feminine and light. Not to mention, this amped-up everyday look is perfect for a date night or brunch with girlfriends. And it is easy!
First, I like to prep clean skin with a sheer BB cream. The newest from Kiehl's offers great sun protection — a whopping 50 SPF — for outdoor venues. Use a damp Beautyblender Makeup Sponge Applicator to get even and light coverage. Make sure to blend to your neck and focus coverage on the center of your face.
I like to skip complicated eye shadow in favor of a single shade of cream eye shadow like MAC Paint Pots in Painterly. Curl eyelashes, making sure to bend and lift the curler while clamping lightly at the base. A swipe of liquid liner just along the roots of top lashes defines the eye. I like the Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates. Finish with a coat of waterproof mascara; you never know if there will be a tearjerker moment at a shower. I'm loving Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara in Very Black for full and fluffy lashes.
Finish off the face with a swipe of bronzer below the cheekbones, along the temples, and below the jawbone. I also like to add a little swipe on each side of my nose to elongate. The new Buxom Hot Escapes Bronzer in Tahiti contains coconut oil and smells so beachy! The coconut oil acts as an emollient and adds a healthy radiance to skin.
Add a touch of highlighter on the brow bone and cheekbone. Mark That's Brilliant Face & Eye Luminizer has a brilliant brush applicator and blends for a natural luminosity. Just a simple plumping lip gloss will keep the pout hydrated and smooth. The new Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Cooler has a cooling sensation that's perfect for hot days and it even buffs away dry skin.
Voilà! You look natural, fresh, and pretty — all set for a day of celebration for the bride-to-be.
