Here’s your motto for the summer: Keep it clean, keep it simple, keep it light
Your make-up and hair style that is. Spending hours meticulously applying make up and flat-ironing your hair seems plain crazy to me. It’s all going to drip down your face and pitilessly stick to it, making you look as if you’d been training for the 42K Marathon. So what’s the point really?
Why spend all that effort in something that’s bound to be torn to pieces because of the hellish humid weather and blazing sun? Summer calls for smart low-maintenance style.
Use summer-smart cosmetics
If you haven’t had a chance, go ahead and read this informative article on summer makeup!
Summer multi-tasking cosmetics are a must; waterproof mascara, a BB cream, a tinted SPF sunscreen, you get the idea. It’s anything that saves you time and still makes you look gorgeously chic.
Time to embrace the natural locks your mother’s genes gave you. Use light styling and keep the heat to a minimum (only use a hair dryer/iron if you REALLY, REALLY have to). Opt for updos, playful braids, ponytails; messy buns were never more fashionable!
Having a lousy hair-day? Accessories is your savior. Embellish your luscious locks with whatever suits your sense of style, from scarves, to headband and hats, summer is full of choices!
Dress light, but classy
Whites, linen dresses, big sunglasses and sun-protecting clothing owe to be your go-to summer choices. Whites keep the sun rays away, linens are breathable so they keep you cool, sunglasses and sun-proof clothes help protect your skin.
It might be 100°F out there, but this is not an excuse for baring (too much) skin for the world to see. You can keep yourself cool without sacrificing style and taste.
Wear your best smile and an in-trend positive attitude, you are ready to go. Summer’s found in simplicity, joviality and naturalness, why ruin it with too much make up and over-the-top dressing choices?
