Everything changes once summer starts: the clothes we wear, the foods we eat, the things we're doing, and also -- our makeup regimen. Selena Gomez, she knows how it is. At the New York City launch of her self-titled perfume, the 19-year-old singer told People that come summertime, she doesn't even bother with makeup.
"I don't wear a lot of makeup in the summer because I sweat it off in five seconds," Gomez joked. "But for summer, honestly, it's sunscreen. My makeup artist that I've worked with since I was 13 has been on me about it forever."
Touché, Selena. Yes, sunscreen IS super important. However, there are ways to up your beauty game during the summer months that will make you look fresh without feeling naked. Check out these 5 summer must-have products, here:
