Barely There Beach Waves

Big, voluminous, bouncy curls are replaced with slightly bent, “I spent the last hour in a convertible with my hair blowing in the wind” waves. It’s the messier, grittier texture of what a day at the beach really looks like, not the Victoria's Secret runway version.

Strobing 

This new makeup trend is all about bringing out your best features. Metallic highlighting gives a super intense glow to your cheekbones, forehead and nose and makes it look like you are radiating light. Who doesn’t want that?

Glossy Stains 

Time to ditch the lipsticks and go for the gloss. Lip stains with a hint of color and a smooth, shiny finish are perfect for the hot days of summer.

Neutral Neons

For nails, when it comes to summer, it’s all about light and bright nails. While blindingly bold oranges, blues and greens were big last summer, this year’s translation is softer, subtler hues.

Double braids

This lace braid looks difficult, but it’s really just two pigtail braids threaded together into one and looks totally runway-worthy.
