BEAUTY BAR: Natural Beauty

The hot August rays can smudge makeup and frizzy hair, making you look like a hot mess by mid-afternoon. The best way to combat the heat and humidity this summer season is sporting a natural beauty look. A natural hair and makeup look can withstand even the most humid days. Pin back half of your hair like this Fashionista or style your hair in a polished braid, messy bun or sleek ponytail. Keeping loose strands out of your face will keep you cooler and your makeup on better.

Tinted moisturizer with SPF or even a BB cream provides flawless light coverage that won’t melt off. Applying blush to the apples of your cheeks can add some color to your face and give you a sun-kissed look. This Fashionista is rocking a durable simple eye look and it can be recreated by applying a liquid liner to the upper lid and a light coat of mascara. Liquid eyeliner is less likely to melt off and will stay on longer. As a finishing touch, apply a light coat of ChapStick over a lip stain to keep your lips moisturized and colorful despite the blazing sun.

It is crucial to pick an outfit that will keep you both cool and stylish all day long. This Fashionista has on a flowy purple sleeveless dress that fits both requirements. She is mixing silver and gold in a tasteful way through her accessories. The gold accented sandals coincide with the gold chain on her side satchel. The silver statement necklace is bold enough to draw attention to her face and her natural looking hair and makeup.
