WHAT: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream
WHY: As though the recent rash of heat hasn't been enough to deal with, today New York has been slapped in the already sweaty face with makeup-melting humidity. Apart from touchups after every venture outside, what's a girl to do? Enter Aqua Cream, Make Up For Ever's new multi-use makeup that seriously won't budge, rain or shine. (Need more evidence? Makeup artists at the upcoming, sure-to-be sweltering Miami Swim Fashion Week will be using the stuff.) There are shades for the eyes, lips, and cheeks; this coral shade would be equally charming on the latter two, while bright turquoises and greens would make for a striking eyeliner.

WHAT: Tod's My Colors bracelets
WHY: Because every four years, we care about soccer...or at least pretend to. (Admiring Cristiano Ronaldo counts.) The United States may be out of the World Cup, but that doesn't mean there's no one left to root for: do you prefer red, black, and yellow; red, yellow, and green; yellow and red; yellow and green; or red, white and light blue? If you can't choose---or you can't identify which team goes with which color (we don't judge, darlings)---a stack of team color bracelets by Tod's looks just as lovely.
PRICE: $225 each
AVAILABLE: Tod's boutiques worldwide
