Summer can easily lead to your best or worse appearance. On one hand, the change in season can give you the opportunity to show your fresh, dewy look and bikini bod to the world. On the other hand, the intense heat of the sun can easily melt your makeup even as early as the morning.
It can even lead to accidental sunburn, which is never a good look. To make the most of the season and avoid looking like a disaster, follow these summer beauty tips.
The first thing that you need to remember is to lather on the sunscreen, and not just before you head to the beach. Make sure to choose a product that keeps you protected against UVA and UVB rays. Beware though as Stylecaster suggest SPF is only an indicator of how long you can stay under the sun. And they do not last for an entire day, so make sure to reapply it, especially if you plan on spending several hours under the sun. Make sure to wear shades as well to protect your eyes.
If you want glowing skin, make sure to exfoliate. Prevention.com says that dead cells build up more during summer, so remove them from your skin so it can glow amid the hot weather. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin as well, as it can quickly dry up under the heat of the sun.
In terms of makeup, your go-to shades should be light colors according to Style Craze. Dark shades should be avoided if you want to pull off that light, breezy summer vibe. Make sure to use a primer before you apply your makeup, as this will help keep it intact.
Thanks to the recent Wonder Woman movie, the Amazons are once again under the spotlight. And for most people it’s her captivating beauty that is leaving the general public in awe regardless of her surrounding environment.
This has a domino effect; now we are seeing the superhero across a ton of different medias and through various incarnations. The aforementioned Patty Jenkins-directed movie has been a huge success and a Amazon Queen slot game that brings Wonder Woman’s roots to the mainstream, launched by UK-based digital gaming site Slingo is also creating buzz online.
But it’s the leading lady’s fashion taste and unwavering beauty that’s really had people taking note of this modern day goddess. You can create Diana Prince’s braid (played by the stunning Gal Gadot) by following this tutorial by beauty vlogger ladollyvita. If you prefer her loose hair hanging down by her shoulders, simply take a curling or straightening iron and curl your hair then scrunch it afterwards to loosen the curls. Alternatively, you can braid your hair overnight to create beach waves.
Another beach look option would be the hair sported by Vanessa Hudgens, which was featured on People.com. The short bob can be a cooler look for those who are uncomfortable with sporting long hair under the heat.
Finally, make sure to keep hydrated. It’s extremely easy to dehydrate during the summer, so make sure to have a bottle of water with you at all times especially when you’re under the summer rays.
