BEAUTY BAR: That's A Wrap

As the summer comes to a close, it’s best to look forward to a brand new semester instead of dwelling on summer adventures gone by. There will be old and new friends to meet, parties and activities and, of course, classes to attend. What better way to prepare for school than refreshing your hair and makeup looks? It can be easy to slip into a no makeup and a ponytail routine, but easy steps can brighten up your look in seconds.

This Fashionista’s refreshing and simple look is perfect for hot August weather. She has clipped her hair back into a messy bun and added an adorable red polka-dot headband. This pop of color looks great with her solid navy dress and draws your eyes up to her face. Her Keds are the same red tone, which gives her look a fun, matchy feel.

For makeup, this Fashionista kept it simple—a good choice when going out in humid weather. The base of her look is luminous, even her skin. Keeping your skin tone even is the best way to make your features pop without overdoing your makeup. With this accomplished, this Fashionista focused on strong eyebrows and kept her eyes and lips simple. Brows have dominated the beauty scene lately, so it’s a good idea to try focusing on them if you don’t have the time or patience for creating that perfect cat eye.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Want to recreate this Fashionista’s fresh faced look? You’ll need some dependable foundation to even out your skin tone and a handy brow pencil for a strong statement.
