Summer Beauty

I know we are well into summer, but it's not too late to try some of these great tricks and trends!  Whether you're headed to the beach, a pool party or going out for a cruise, these ideas will keep you looking current and cute!
1. Sunless Tan- Save your skin by wearing a good sunblock, and fake it with a natural looking sunless tanning product. Make sure you apply the product from your collarbone to hairline when using a facial sunless tanner. Start by exfoliating and then applying an oil-free lotion (oil blocks absorption of tanner). On the flip side, apply moisturizer with oil on elbows, ankles and knees where color tends to be too dark. Products to try: Neutrogena Micro-Mist Tanning Spray; Jergens Natual Glow and L'Oreal Sublime Bronze.

2. Metallic Eyes- Add a Golden Metallic Shadow to your Classic Smokey Eye Kit! One to try: Maybelline Eyestudio (see below.)

3. Retro Makeup- The makeup is light and fresh, usign liner and mascara only on upper lids and a pretty, bright red lipstick.

2. Loose Braids- Try a beautiful braided style like this! Create two or three small braids with the front sections of your hair and secure them on the side with bobby pins. To keep them from looking too "done," go through and loosen, loop by loop. You will want it to look a little pulled apart. Use a large barrel curling iron to curl pieces around your face.

3. Fun Manicures. This geometric design was shown with the Nicole Miller runway show. It looks pretty along with the understated makeup. Cuuute!

Nail Idea: Try Crazy Brights
 I love the combination of the yellow nails and the oversized ring.

4. Pretty Beach Things.
