SUMMER BEAUTY OBSESSIONS

All Natural

Summer is the perfect time to go all natural with your look, but don’t forget sun protection! We love Control Corrective’s Oil-Free Sunscreen.

Baby Blue Tips and Shadows

A simple blue shadow or polish adds just the right touch of cool! We simply adore Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Aquamarine and Essie polish in Truth or Flare.

Beautiful braids

Instead of a pony tail try an elegant braid! Here is a great tutorial to help you get inspired. 

Bold Pink Lips

Bright pink lips are the perfect compliment to a simple eye. Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture in Fuchsia Tomboy is the perfect summer pink!

Flash Tattoos

For your next pool party or concert, accessorize with Flash Tattoos. The jewelry-inspired designs add an amazing sparkle to any outfit!

Fun Hair Bands

Incorporate pops of color with great hair accessories! We could not believe the amazing selections available at ShopLately.com.

Luscious Lashes

 Go glam with extra-lucious lashes! We recently discovered Lashes In A Box and fell in LOVE with their hand-made lashes.

Subtle Pastel Hair

If you are feeling extra-daring then try a subtle pastel hue on your hair! For temporary color, we recommend using hair-chalk.

The Perfect Brow

A natural, but defined brow always wins! Billion Dollar Brows has all the tools needed to help ensure that your brows stay on point all summer long.

If your style is more classic, then a pink or coral lip is perfect for you! For a brighter pink try Stila After Glow Lip Color in Party Pink or for a more coral hued shade go for Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in Satin Coral.

SKIN
