Summertime is in full swing, the weather is heating up and so are we. It’s time to catch the waves and glisten this season. Let your summer sizzle with beach ready hair and radiant skin. Here are a few of my tricks and tips to get you glowing this summer.
Beach Waves Tutorial:
Step 1 – Wet your hair, and add a setting lotion to set in the waves. This will help pump up the volume.
Step 2 – Diffuse your hair to create texture and movement, use low heat for maximum control.
Step 3 – After hair is completely dry, soften it up by using a medium to large curling iron to keep the curls loose so you have a more natural look.
Step 4 – Wind up the curls, pin them to set, and once they are cool release them.
Step 5 – Run your fingers through and blend the curls out. Then add a small amount of texture paste to separate and define the curls.
Step 6 – Finish with setting hairspray, in a light to medium hold to support the style.
Added creativity: I incorporated a twisted top knot in the crown area for extra summertime fun, plus added a pretty flower to accessorize.
Sun-kissed Glowing Skin:
Step 1 – Moisturize the skin: Use your favorite moisturizer to smooth and soften after the face is cleansed.
Step 2 – Primer: Protect and prepare the skin for makeup, primer helps to minimize the pores and helps your makeup last longer.
Step 3 – Concealer: Cover dark circles, blemishes and discoloration in the skin.
Step 4 – Foundation: Apply to skin…chin, cheeks, forehead, etc. Be sure to blend out for a flawless finish.
Step 5 – Contouring and highlighting: Bring out your best features by highlighting them and giving them a sculpted look. Conceal areas that need neutralized and softened by contouring them.
Step 6 – Blush: Brush on to add instant glow add color to the apples of the cheeks. Get the sun kissed look by blending out and up to the upper cheekbone area.
Step 7 – Eyes: Smoke it out with shadows, define with liners, and sculpt those brows with brow gel.
Step 8 – Lips: Play it up with fun shimmer, pinks, corals and gloss. I always moisturize the lips to soften and smooth them, then line them with a defining lip liner pencil. Apply your summertime lipstick evenly and finish with a shimmer and shine gloss.
To finish the look, I went with an all over shimmer to give my model’s skin a glistening glow perfect for the season of sunshine. You’re all set, now go ahead and get glowing!
Until next time…live your dreams!
