To create touchable, relaxed curls, start by spraying damp hair with a volumizing product like PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Spray Volume Intense. If your hair has a natural wave, let it air dry. For fine hair, use the T3 Featherweight 2 to speed up the process. Next, apply a misting of ALTERNA Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves for tousled texture. To create effortless waves, try wrapping your strands around The Beachwaver by SARAHPOTEMPA Tools.
You can also use a straightening iron to achieve a similar look. Separate your hair into wide sections. Twist each section and hold the end in one hand while you run a straightening iron like the Ceramic Styler by Amika over the twisted hair. Let each section cool before using your fingers to gently unravel for loose natural-looking waves. AMIKA

Our Beauty Director-at-Large Romy Soleimani, played with sheer washes of lively color for an easy summer-to-fall look. Get the look by first creating a healthy, even complexion. Prep for bold lid color by hydrating and concealing with a lightweight, nourishing eye treatment like Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Eye Serum by Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins. Next, wake up the inner corners of your eyes with a brightening concealer like BY TERRY Touch-Expert Advanced Multi-Corrective Concealer Brush. For quick one-step complexion prep, try Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Fair or if you're having a bad skin day, address the issue with a targeted treatment. The Koh Gen Do Makeup Color Base series reduces excess shine and provides protection from the sun. Try Green for a ruddy complexion, Lavender Pink to revive tired skin, or Yellow for uneven skin tone.
Prime your lids with IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lid Lines Age-Reverse Eyeshadow Primer before applying a non-neutral shadow in order to ensure the color stays put. Curl your lashes with The Eyelash Curler by Kevyn Aucoin before applying eyeshadow to avoid smudging.
Next, paint your eyelids in a sheer veil of blue. Try BY TERRY Ombre Blackstar Melting Eyeshadow in 8 Paradise Island or BY TERRY Aqua-Print Eyeshadow in 5 Blue Fiesta. Or use a short bristled brush like the Double Ended Shadow Brush by Stila to apply a whisper of blue shadow along the lower lash line. Coat your lashes with a moisturizing mascara like the Skinny Brush Mascara by Eyeko for a soft, silky fringe. Not only does the Skinny Brush Mascara condition your lashes, it also allows for precise, hyper-controlled application. Hold the wand horizontally for the first coat before turning it upright to define and separate.
Before applying vibrant matte lip color, be sure to condition your lips with a hydrating treatment like the Caudalíe Lip Conditioner. Next, use the pad of your index finger to apply an orange or coral-infused red, beginning at the center of your pout and moving outward. Try NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya or tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment in True Love. Blot to diffuse the color and reapply lip conditioner if the texture is too matte.
