I know you don’t want to mess around with too many eye products during July, one of the two hottest, sweatiest, and meltiest months of the year. I don’t, either. And yes, I know I just made up the world “meltiest,” but it fits. Makeup doesn’t stay put when the mercury rises.

So how about three key, easy products to keep your peepers looking their best, without too much effort or threat of a literal meltdown?

Your makeup routine will remain simple and sophisto with these three products through July. Scout’s honor!

Eyeko’s Rock Out + Lash Out Mascara makes lashes blacker than black, sans crumbles or flakes or other mascara messes. Plus, the brush is shaped like a guitar. As someone who listens to 99 percent rock music, this mascara was made for me! Yeah, I said it and I claimed it. My quest for the thickest, blackest lashes is never ending and this formula helps my goal. I build and build volume, thickness, and blackness by painting four coasts on my lashes, using the thickest part of the wand on the outer corners. That technique just works for me. Find the one that works for you by playing with the brush and it’s width.

Blue, brown, white, and gold eye shadow are always options for summer and mixing the shades mimics the ocean, the sun, the moon, and the sand. FLOWER BEAUTY’s EQ7 Shadow Play Eye-Sea-You quad boasts four hues for bright, beachy smoky eyes that you can wear after your rinse off from your day at lounging at the beach or by the pool. It’s summer and you want easy. It doesn’t get an easier than one palette with four shades. Proceed to buff like crazy.

I’ve been using eyebrow pencils as of late, to fill in my sparse areas, like the inner upper corner of my right brow. Those tools work just fine. But then I met Ardell’s Brow Pomade in Dark Brown and fell in love at first usage. It’s a pot of color that comes with a spoolie brush on one end and an angled tip on the other, so you can apply, sweep, brush, and shape for Cara Delevingne-like brows. If you have more time to play, it’s less “efficient” than and not as fast a pencil. But you can’t argue with results. I love my power brows when I use this. I dip the angled end in the put, dab a tiny amount of product on my brow, and then use the spoolie end, which looks like a mascara wand, to disperse, since I don’t want my brows to be perfect and therefore unnatural.

There you go! Three items, amazing summer eyes. Have a lovely July.
