Gone are the days of bundling up and using your makeup to emphasize your favorite features through snowfall. The new Clarins Hâle D’Été summer 2016 makeup collection reminds us that sunny, warm days are right around the corner. The best part about summer is knowing you’ll be able to choose makeup that highlights your face and complements your outfits – or products that are practical for use on a beach! Of course, the possibilities for winter makeup can be exciting as well, but there’s just something about summer that brings out the best in glowing and fresh makeup. The looks in this collection, with an international release date scheduled in April (available on Sephora.com), will have you begging for the first wave of summer to hit.
Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster
This is an easy-to-use self-tanning cream from Clarins, made to give you a naturally tanned look for your summer beach bod. Your skin will be glowing; all you have to do is mix the formula with your everyday cream, and over time you will develop a sun-kissed glow, which will turn bronze with continued use. This would be a great base to your summer look.
Clarins La Poudre Soleil & Blush (Limited Edition)
In this small set, you will find two matte shades: one copper-beige and the other terracotta; the other is glowing gold and peach. The shades are textured with a sun pattern, and the bronzing effect makes it the perfect powder for summer.
Clarins Fix’ Max-Up (Limited Edition)
If you’re going to be standing out under the hot sun all day, you’ll need to make sure your makeup stays fresh and secure. This spray contains aloe vera and white tea extract, and is scented with rose water and grapefruit. It promises to make your makeup hold throughout the day, and will ensure your skin will stay moisturized as well.
Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow
Waterproof makeup is an absolute lifesaver during the summer. You will be protected from any sudden rain showers, and it can also survive a dip at the beach or in the pool. More commonly associated with eyeliner and mascara, this waterproof eyeshadow will give you a one-up on others, giving you a more complete look through the day.

Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara
Waterproof mascara is a staple for your spring and summer makeup looks, and this formula promises double-volume and length, and will stick with you in your outside ventures. Your eyelashes will even be protected from any harmful effects from seawater, pool water, and the sun. This product isn’t new to Clarins’ catalog, but it is definitely worth bringing back to promote for this season.

Clarins Double Fix’ Mascara Waterproof
Swimming or rainfall can really put a damper on your eyelashes, which is what makes this transparent mascara so helpful. It will hold your lashes in place through just about anything. It can even have the same effect on your eyebrows, if you want. Regardless, you will have healthy, conditioned lashes, without having to worry about it as you go about your day.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil
This lip oil is made totally from plant oils, so the natural feeling you get from wearing this will be just that. It has a non-sticky formula, so you can wear the sheer gel on your lips for top levels of comfort and ease. It is easy to apply, and will go great with the rest of your glowing summer look!
