Most Coveted is a bi-weekly shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about.

Unfortunately for me (and my finances), my beauty routine requires a switch-up every time a new season rolls around. Fall and winter are all about hydration and skincare that packs a glow. Spring and summer are about prioritizing products that won't melt off my face in the sauna that is New York's subway system. Cream makeup that feels weightless on my skin, bronzing SPF, and my holy-grail face powder from Nordstrom are always first up on the list. Then, I'll make my way over to the essentials I need for summer travel (skincare sets, eye masks, and miniature versions of my favorites). Nordstrom really is that girl when it comes to stocking the best of the best beauty products on the market, so keep scrolling to shop my top picks for the summer.
