Every time I feel like I just can’t take the summer heat any longer, I wind up channeling my inner Wicked Witch of the West. Sweating, sulking and sweltering as my makeup starts to run, I find myself thinking, “I’m melting—melting! Oh, what a world!” While I’m busy saying there’s no place like an air conditioned home, this Fashionista is looking cool and collected. Though she does have some killer heels to click, it’s her bright lips and nails that are really working their magic with this look.
Wearing makeup in the heat is a matter of finding the perfect recipe for success. It’s best to stay as natural as possible, highlight your greatest assets and complement your chosen ensemble. Since this Fashionista’s outfit base is entirely black and white, her best option is to accessorize with a bright lip and nail color. With such a neutral start, her color options are fairly endless, which means when in doubt—just pick a color you love. Her pink lip completely brightens up her color scheme, and partnered with her perfectly painted nails this Fashionista is not only unstoppable—but melting makeup free.
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, you need a lip stain, matte or gloss, as well as, a non-chip nail polish. Make sure to keep the rest of your makeup on the light and natural side. This will save you bronzer, and let the sun give you a healthy and natural glow.
