Melissa Gorga is practically synonymous with bronzed cheeks, nude lips, and lush brown hair with caramel streaks. But even though The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has her signature beauty look down pat, she also changes things up from to time, especially when the seasons change.
In a recent chat with the New York Post, the Envy Boutique owner spilled the products behind her summertime beauty routine. In the season of shorts and swimsuits, Melissa pays special attention to the skin on her arms, legs — and in other places. To help ward off razor burn and bumps in her bikini area, the New Jersey native relies on Bikini Zone Anti-Bump Shave Gel ($18.59 for a pack of three). She also gets a little glow with two of her favorite oils for "body bling:" Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Body Lava Body Luminizer ($59) and Scott Barnes Body Bling ($42). And after a shower, she applies Kiehl's Creme de Corps ($40).
Her skincare regimen includes Lancome's Renergie Lift Multi-Action Eye cream ($75), and the self-professed "La Mer" girl also uses the brand's Moisturizing Soft Cream ($190). She loves using Sephora's Instant Mask around her jaw and neck ($8), and deems 111Skin's gold patches ($135) as "the best" for under-eye soothing. For exfoliating, she uses Mario Badescu's Glycolic Foaming Cleanser ($16).
When it comes to makeup, Melissa ups her SPF game for the summer with the Bravoleb-favorite IT Cosmetics' CC Cream, which has SPF 50 ($40). To combat shiny skin in the heat, she uses Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder ($45). For her bronzed and glowing cheeks, the RHONJ cast member uses a Marc Jacobs bronzer ($25) and MAC's "Soft & Gentle" highlighter ($37). And for blush, she gravitates toward baby-pink hues from Charlotte Tilbury ($40).
For her eyes, the fashionista uses Maybelline's Glam Black mascara "from the drugstore" ($7), Urban Decay's waterproof eyeliner in the "Double Life" shade ($22), and bronze and brown eyeshadows from Natasha Denona's camel palette ($48). "I only wear brown and bronze colors, and Natasha makes the best ones," Melissa said. Every now and then, she also pops on a pair of Ardell lashes ($17).
Melissa's "a MAC girl" when it comes to her lips, and she uses Blankety nude lipstick ($19) and Oyster Girl Lip Glass ($19). She gets her summer curls with the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Spring Curling Iron ($60). And finally, Melissa's forever pick for fragrance is Mugler's Angel Eau de Parfum ($85). "I refuse to wear anything else," she said.
