Warm Weather Glam: Our Favorite Summertime Beauty Products!
Posted Monday June 11, 2012 12:12 PM GMT
There are many occasions during the summertime (when you’re not lounging poolside as a bare-faced beauty, that is) when you get all gussied up to hang out with family and friends – girls’ nights, concerts in the park, and sunset dinner dates just to name a few.
However, beauty queens - take note: the cosmetic realm is full of new trends for the season! So, before you go swiping on that new lipstick or mascara, read on to discover all the new fads emerging in the beauty world!
Minimal and natural are the key words this season. Makeup artists are all about a clean palette paired with other subtle features this summer, such as peachy cheeks and contoured cheekbones. Neutral tones are very popular for eyes right now and with women everywhere are falling even more in love with a cat-eye style liner, it really helps that neutral eye makeup job to pop.
Doll-like lashes are something to try out as well – think sky-high and mega-thick. For lips, bring on the color! From crazy corals to bold reds, a statement kisser is all the rage right now, so don't be caught bopping around town without one! Be sure to snag yourself some hair protective products as well. The sun can do a lot of damage to your tresses, so be sure to take the necessary precautions to guard them and keep ‘em looking luscious!
With that said, we’d like to introduce you to some of our summertime beauty BFFs. These products help to achieve all of the looks above, are lightweight (which is great for the warm season) and are long-lasting - many are waterproof, too! These beauty enhancers are certainly worthy investing in and adding to your cosmetic arsenal, trust us!
