BEAUTY BAR: Chillin' With Some Makeup On

July 24th, 2015 at 2:00am

We all love our bright highlighters and bronze contours, but in the summertime there’s only so much makeup a person take! Heavy makeup can ruin your fun on summer days. I personally can take refuge in just a neutral eye and taupe lip any time of year, but summer brings out the brighter colors in every Fashionista/o’s closet (or makeup drawer). So why not try something more bold but easy to put together? Summer shouldn’t be wasted on figuring out a beauty routine; having a basic but fun look like the one modeled by this Fashionista on lock is essential.

I spotted this Fashionista with a simple look that seemed too chic to be true. Her look is easier than it comes across, which exactly what your summer beauty routine should be! She styled her hair using a curling wand to create big, beachy waves. Using a curling wand is quick and easy for a hairdo that lasts all day with the right product for your hair type. The makeup, consisted of a clean face with champagne eyeshadow, thin black eyeliner, mascara and a bright pink lip. Her look was light and fresh enough for this hot Florida summer day. Her pink lip is the epitome of summer and adds a quick pop to a neutral outfit.

The Fashionista’s white T-shirt dress and fringe vest are perfect for a sunny day. She kept her accessories minimal, which is something I do daily to add just the right amount of sparkle to a simple look. Style a similar look to soak up the summer sun.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To recreate this easy summertime look, opt for a bigger curling wand that creates big waves. This Fashionista used NARS Audacious Lipstick in Shocking Pink to add a pop of summer to her neutral assemble. For long lashes, my go to is the Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara, which is perfect for all day wear without flaking. To go a day without any smudges, don’t forget to spritz on your makeup setting spray.
