Kylie Jenner launched her brand Kylie Cosmetics’ summer collection last week, appropriately named ‘Under the Sea.’

The series includes four new Shimmer Eye Glazes in beachy hues, including a striking aquamarine colourway that will have you dreaming of clear waters.

Tarte Cosmetics

Cruelty-free brand Tarte Cosmetics has added several products to its clean beauty SEA Collection, including three new vegan foil finger pocket palettes that feature two foil shadows and a glitter gel topper each.

All the hues have been inspired by starry, beach nights and have been designed for application with the fingers, making them ideal for poolside touch-ups.
