Let the Fireworks Fly and Brighten Up Your Look This Summer

Summer is in full swing and July 4th get-togethers are on their way! Whether celebrating Independence Day or stealing away for a weekend road trip, summer is the perfect season to update makeup routines and discover the newest swimsuit and beachwear trends. Rising temperatures are a catalyst for a refresh, so check out the fashion and makeup tips below then head to the nearest summertime celebration.

Swimsuit Trends and Fashion Waves

It’s all about the one-piece this summer! While high-waisted bikinis and vibrant tankinis are still hot style items, one-piece suits are available in more colors and cuts than ever. Wrap arounds, low-backed and cut out suits are popular trends, and the new fashion wave is a welcome change of pace. From bold stripes to understated neutral shades, one-piece swimwear is ruling pools and beaches this summer. 

A Fresh Face

Summer is the perfect season to refresh your body and mind, so let skin breath and take a break from heavy foundation. Instead of using heavy products, try a CC or BB cream. Both offer light and moisturizing coverage, and help with color correction. BB and CC creams are perfect for dry heat or humid air, and are available from many popular skincare lines and can be purchased at a variety of price points. Many come with SPF in different shades, and there’s a fit for nearly every skin type. It’s a small change with big benefits so give skin a break from heavy, oily products with a CC or BB cream.

Lip Stains

Along with light coverage make-up, swapping from lipstick to lip stains is a simple switch that’s ideal for rising temperatures. During the summer season less is more, and a heavy lipstick can be too much for a day under the sun, particularly when you’re enjoying a day poolside or at the beach. A lip stain will be lighter on the lips and stays on just as long and requires fewer touch ups. Consider lip stains for luscious, lighter lips without the hassle.

Enough Heat

Perfect beach waves are the pinnacle of summer hairstyles. One of the best techniques to achieve a beachy wave without heading seaside is by using texturizing spray. Sea salt texturizing sprays smell great and give your hair a wavy look in minutes, and are a great option for on-the-go hair care. Your tresses will look effortless with just the right amount of bounce – and perfect for the summer season! Given the greater exposure to sun and water (whether pool water or salt water), why not skip the heat from a hair straightener or curling iron and go with an easy and natural hair style.
