First up, gotta get the skin aglow for those strapless dresses and back out tops!! Run don't walk and snatch up a nice, warm body scrub to get your skin right, I love the Ginger Body Scrub from Origins!! My "beautiful skin inspiration" is Gabrielle Union, her skin and beauty is just flawless!
Hair is Huge for summer, because you don't want to look overdone at the beach! The whole point to summer is laid back, carefree effortless beauty! Natural is the key word for summer hair, so if you have long hair shoot for tousled, loose waves. Short hair, a little leave-in conditioner, light gel for curl enhancement or pomade if your hair is straight and go!
|Gorgeous tousled waves!|
|Beautiful twist out!!! Love this!!|
|Eva Pigford. Stunning!|
So what would summer be without a sick mani/pedi to compliment your look!!
I am in love with this gorgeous pastel pink called Teddy Girl by butter LONDON!!! And the great thing about their nail lacquers is they're eco-friendly, they don't contain the toulene, resin, formaldehyde and other harmful ingredients that's been linked to cancer and birth defects!!
Achieving that flawless skin for some may include makeup and summer time will definitely test the durability of your foundation. Most of you already know that I'm a MAC addict so of course that's my recommendation for your summer foundation!
I prefer MAC Studio Sculpt and a Blot Powder to ward off shine! However, make sure you visit a counter and see what works best for your skin!
Long, flirty lashes really sets the tone for fun in the sun, don't you think? But how can you really play up those lashes without getting ring around the eye after a sweaty game of beach volleyball or heaven forbid splashing around the water?
|Every gal needs a great waterproof mascara!! I love Maybelline at a great price!!|
Some other last minute items to always keep in the beach bag:
|butter LONDON Trout Pout|
|Invisible Solid, keeps the stains away!!|
|Vitamin E Face Mist, The Body Shop!|
Ok ladies let's get ready to hit the beach in style and beauty!! Share some of your fave summer staples, would love to hear from you!!
Happy Summer Beauties~
