To create this carefree look, our Beauty Director-at-Large Romy Soleimani began by applying SPF, an essential step to incorporate into any summer skin care regimen. To get the look, start by finding an SPF that works for you. Try a formula safe for all skin types like Arcona Reozone 40 Protect SPF 20 or The Organic Pharmacy Cellular Protection Sun Cream. Fake a golden glow with a self-tanner like bareMinerals Faux Tan Sunless Face Tanner or a tinted lotion like PRTTY Peashun Skin Tight Body Lotion to add luminosity to your collar bone, shoulders, arms and legs.
Use a beautyblender to apply a tinted moisturizer like NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer to even your skin tone and reduce redness. Add warmth to your cheeks by using your finger to apply a creamy blush like butter LONDON Cheeky Cream Blush in Honey Pie. To keep your complexion fresh and radiant throughout a warm summer day, have blotting papers on hand. Try the Blotting Paper Refill by Paul & Joe Beaute, its sunny yellow packaging will brighten up your beauty bag.
Lighten the skin under your eyes with a sheer illuminator like Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Under Eye Brightener. Add definition to your brows with an eye pencil like The Precision Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde by Kevyn Aucoin.
Add a splash of swimming-pool polish to your nails with an aquamarine shade like POP Beauty Nail Glam Nail Polish in Turquoise, DerMElect Cosmeceuticals ME Anti-Aging Nail Lacquer Polish in Renegade or Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in She Drives Me Crazy.
Stack several brightly colored hair ties at the end of a loose side braid for playful pops of color. Try the soft, hair-safe ones featured in CyndiBands Gift Card Set of 6 Hair Ties. Secure the style with a soft-hold hairspray like Ouidad Curl Last Flexible-Hold Hairspray.
