Summer Beauty Must-Haves


Nobody wants to feel sticky, oily and gross when it's hot out. Keeping the beauty products to a minimum during the summer sounds scary but is easy to do when you've got a trove of tried-and-tested items that'll help you look on point no matter how icky it is out.

Bronze Goodness
Yes, tanning is bad for you. Are you going to stop doing it? Probably not judging by the instagram hot dog leg posts we see on the reg. If you're going to tan outdoors, choose a lotion that gets  you results quickly so you don't have to spend hours in the sun.

Because it's hot out, it's totally normal to keep all other makeup to a minimum which is why a nice, colorful lip can make you look like you put way more effort into your appearance than you actually did.

Trending: Blush

Blush Fashion Trend 2015

Blush is more than just the stuff your mom insists you need to put more of on your faceThis season, neutral tones are pretty much everything but, if you're color-phobic and looking to jazz things up this summer, go with some muted peach and pink pieces. Blush tones are a pretty safe way to guarantee you won't wish you could just go back home and change your vibrant, colorful outfit because it's way too much for you to mentally/sartorially handle. We get it.

Beauty Trend: Brown Smokey Eyes – From L to r: Gucci, Paul and joe, givenchy, Roberto Cavalli, Giorgio Armani, Reem Acra


Neutrals in clothing are a big deal this season so naturally, the makeup worn on the models walking for Gucci, Reem Acra, Givenchy and more would reflect accordingly. The brown, smoke-eyed trend can be worn more subtly like Lindsey Wixson's look for Paul and Joe, or more dramatically for evening activities as seen on the models at Roberto Cavalli

Shades of bronze, coffee and cool taupe hues look great on a variety of complexions and are ultimately, very flattering which is basically the whole point of makeup, right?
