All Eyes on You

All Eyes on You

Come summer, the easiest way to create a fresh-faced look is with less eye makeup — so stash the heavy eyeliner until fall. A sparkly cream shadow in a light shade (from lash line to brow bone) leaves a wash of color. Top with mascara for gorgeous results.

Orange Is the New Red!

Orange lips are a summer trend, but one shade does not fit all. Instead of falling for your first orange crush, play with a few different shades to make sure the tone works with your skin color. If bold and bright isn’t your style, try a more subtle tinted balm or lip stain.

Protect Your Pout

Protect Your Pout

Your lips need sun protection, too, so slip on a product with SPF 30 every morning. It might also help you prevent cold sores, since the sun’s UV rays can trigger flare-ups. Save the shine for hot summer nights — glossy formulas make delicate skin more prone to sunburn.

Hot Hairstyles That Keep You Cool

Hot Hairstyles

The best way to beat the heat is to keep hair off your neck. Ponytails, braids, ballerina buns, and topknots are classic summer looks. If you need help keeping your locks in place, use dry shampoo or hair powder to add grip, texture, and volume. A shorter, cropped ’do is an easier option — pageboys and pixies always look cool. Ask your stylist for a face-flattering cut.

Defend Your Tresses

Just like your skin, UV rays can damage your hair. Too much sun dries it out and makes it prone to breakage. You should also protect your scalp. The best way is with a hat, or spray sunscreen onto your part and work it into the roots.

Extra TLC for Healthy Hair

Healthy Hair

Baby your summer hair with more moisture. Use a mask once or twice a week to condition, repair, and strengthen. If it’s going on extremely dry, damaged, and brittle locks, mix in a few drops of oil before applying. Then, wrap hair in a warm, wet towel, and cover with a plastic bag for 5-10 minutes before rinsing well.

Fight frizz and land those fly-aways with regular moisturizing. It repairs and strengthens the hair. Use treatment oils before styling (or a few drops mixed into your conditioner) to smooth strands as well. Finish your style with a humidity-resistant hairspray.

Add to Your Arsenal

Your Arsenal

Use a secret weapon in your summer routine to help protect your skin. Products with vitamin C or green tea can help your sunscreen work better and prevent damage after you get some sun. If you wear foundation, you should still layer something with SPF under it, since most women don’t wear enough makeup to block those rays.

Fake It, Don’t Bake It

Fake It, Don’t Bake It

For best self-tan results, use a face or body scrub with granules beforehand. Avoid oil-based products, which can cause streaks. If you’re nervous or a novice, use a formula that gradually darkens your skin over a few days. When doing your face, include your ears, and blend into your hairline and down your neck for the most natural look.

Keep Summer Breakouts at Bay

Breakouts at Bay

Summer heat can make blemishes worse. Wash your face twice daily (and after sweating) to help keep it under control. It’s a myth that the sun clears up pimples, and many acne treatments can make your skin more likely to burn. If you tend to break out, look for sunscreens that say “oil-free,” “non-comedogenic,” “non-acnegenic,” or “won’t clog pores.
