relax into summer

Follow me and my summer adventures (i.e., lots of grilling in my urban garden) on Instagram @egaeditor. I love an impromptu brainstorming session, especially on one of the first warm spring days. That kind of weather gets you excited about the joys of the warmer months ahead—a hint of what’s to come to fuel anticipation. This feeling is what spurred a group of Shape editors to start chatting about the articles and images in this, our big summer double issue. While we reviewed the pages, I asked which pictures evoked that happy summer feeling the most, and this roundup of images represents the group consensus. Use these visual high lights to set your mood to “summer,” then sit back and settle into the rest of the issue, which is chock-full of…

next level living

1. Summer Style Jelly sandals are making a comeback, and who better than pop superstar Katy Perry to give the quirky classics a high-gloss spin. Her graphic versions, including the Geli Cherry and the Geli Lips ($49 each, katyperrycollections.com), are campy, lightweight, and a reminder not to take things too seriously this season. Luxuriate a bit more in your downtime. Fix a drink from a fancy bottle. Try your quiet soak blissfully afloat. 2. Trick Out Your Bar Here’s a luxe bottle you’ll want to repurpose rather than recycle like other empties. Viva XXXII’s premium tequila (at wallywine.com) is smooth enough to sip and looks expensive but starts at just $40. Plus, the brand donates 10 percent of proceeds to charities like the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (there’s even a…

sheer magic

beauty that moves with you SCAN TO SHOP MAKEUP Download the free Shape Next app and scan the page. The makeup swipes and spills you see above may be thick and deeply pigmented on the page; on your skin, they stay true to their hues but feel weightless and look diaphanous. The magic comes from both the formulas—lighter than ever, easy to blend, moisture packed—and the technique you use to apply them. “It’s just like creating a watercolor painting,” celebrity makeup artist Troy Jensen says. Rather than dipping your paintbrush in a jar of water, though, “you’ll spritz your makeup brush with a facial mist before applying a sheer wash of powder,” he says. It also helps if you prep your canvas: Smooth a serum or a facial oil (like L’Oréal Paris…

shani darden

This skin-care guru is all about simplicity. Darden, who handles the faces of a few names you might know (Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jessica Alba) and acts as the celebrity aesthetician and brand ambassa dor for Garnier, is as grounded as they come, favoring a pared-down approach to life that extends from what she wears to what she puts on her skin. “In the morning, I cleanse, use a vitamin C or hyaluronic acid serum, then apply sunscreen,” she says. “At night, it’s the same but minus the sunscreen, and I add retinol.” Her self-titled line is similarly restrained, offering just two items: Texture Reform and Retinol Reform ($95 each, shanidarden.com). Darden says one of the biggest misconceptions about skin care is that we need to pile on a lot…
