There are times to rock a glowing bare face. This is great when you’ve been chugging water and your moisturizer is awesome and secretly, you have some kind of natural bronzer that nobody needs to know about. That’s fine, it’s nice to go au naturel and embrace your I-woke-up-like-this look (even if you didn’t). But, there are some beauty trends that just bring it on.
This winged cat eye inspiration from Refinery29 is definitely bold and means the rest of the face should be toned down, but it’s different and fun. Another kind of hardcore eye is shown on Georgia May Jagger (but there’s also nothing this goddess can’t pull off). In the hair department, going lighter for summer is almost routine, and Miranda Kerr has perfected the color. Plus, some more successful “gone lighter” shades here. For a DIY acne mask, this 3-part ingredient concoction found on MimiChatter (which by the way is an incredible beauty resource) looks simple enough. Dry shampoo is a good purchase for summer since we’re often out and about and hair washing…may not always be a number one priority. Allure recommends this Moroccan Oil variety and since I love the brand’s hair cream, I will trust.
And let’s top beauty off with the lips, because that’s always a priority. Into The Gloss is without a doubt a very reliable go-to for all things beauty. So when they tested out lipsticks for summer in various shades, you know you can flip through and create a small list before getting lost in Sephora.
