By: Kim Kelder, Miraval's Skin Care Specialist

The summer heat is upon us and we know that can be devastating for our makeup. Kim is the Skin Care Specialst here at Miraval. With her skin care expertise we were eager to know what items she always keeps on hand. Here is what we found.

Mineral makeup

I use Minerals on the Go by La Bella Donna which has amazing ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. These are both natural sun blocks that protect and soothe the skin.

 A Kabuki brush

I buy one small enough to keep in my makeup bag--it’s perfect for touching up blush.

 A good blush

I use the Luminere blush by La Bella Donna which can also be used for eye shadow. Bronzer is also great for a quick sun-kissed-skin look.


I apply throughout the day to open up my eyes and make my lashes look thick and long. I love Benefit BADgal lash mascara.

Lip gloss

The Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer is amazing. It leaves my lips shiny and moist.

Facial towelettes

I use these before and after a workout. Makeup mixed with sweat can clog the pores so it is important to wash before and after you work out to help prevent break outs. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s EZ4U Facial Towelettes are individually packaged and so easy to throw in my purse and go!


I keep a travel-sized facial SPF in my purse at all times, but it is also important to use SPF on your lips. I use a clear Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15, but tinted lip SPF works well too.

These are just a few simple beauty staples that you can easy touch up on the go makeup!
