Creating the Perfect Summer Look
Summer has officially arrived, bringing warm weather as well as good vibes. Outdoor activities and gatherings are a must during this season, so here are some tips on how to create the perfect overall summer look.
Your skin produces a lot of oil and sebum throughout the day, which means face makeup should be kept at a minimum to prevent pores from clogging. During the summer, a full face of makeup tends to make your skin feel stuffy and uncomfortable. The best way to cover up your skin concerns is through little amounts of concealer and skipping foundation entirely to let your skin breathe throughout the day. Another tip to creating the perfect makeup look is to add glitter, which will definitely brighten up your overall complexion. A popular makeup trend this season is the glossy look, which is achieved by applying liquid highlighter on the high points of your face (i.e. brow bone and cheekbones).
The perfect summer clothing pieces are crop tops, skirts, and dresses. These three items complete your overall look with minimal effort. Crop tops give the illusion of longer legs, especially if you pair them with a pair of comfortable shorts and sneakers to create a casual look. Skirts are the perfect way to spice up your outfit and make it look a little more girly. You can pair the skirt with a cute plain top along with sandals or sneakers, depending on what style you prefer. Lastly, the most effortless yet put-together look is achieved through wearing dresses. They are the easiest clothing pieces to style because you just put on a dress and some sandals or even sneakers and then you have a cute, girly outfit with little effort.
HAIR & ACCESSORIES
The weather is getting hotter, and long hair can get very sweaty and uncomfortable when let down. The best way to keep your hair out of the way is to tie it up in either a low or high ponytail. To add a little more to your ponytail, you can tie a french braid at the top of your head to add an accent to your overall look. One idea is adding a bow or ribbon around your ponytail to coordinate it with your outfit’s color scheme. Another cute hairstyle is the half updo hairstyle that pulls the main pieces of your hair away from the front while allowing the rest of your hair to frame your face. Lastly, to complete your look, you can add some cute dangly earrings, a simple necklace, fashionable watch, and some thin, minimal rings.
If you follow these tips, you will definitely create a cute, girly outfit that will surprise many people. You will be able to enjoy this summer season comfortably and in style. What are your favorite summer items? Let me know in the comments below!
