Summer Beauty Guide

BRAIDS & WAVES; Not much to say for this one except that waves and braids are the way to go this summer. Braids are heavily influenced by the spring 2010 catwalks all over Europe. Particularly prominent on Alexander Wang's Spring 2010 runway, and also spotted at Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu Spring 2010.



  • Fun shaded lipsticks. Trust me, they work with any skin color. Pair them with neutral eyes and be ready to pop with them. Especially go for corals and fun pink, violet shades.

  • Pastels haven't only be raging all over clothes and makeup, but nails as well. Go ahead and shellac your nails with one of those hot hues: Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($26, at all Chanel beauty counters) in “Nouvelle Vague.” Yves Saint Laurent Long-Lasting Nail Lacquer ($24 each, at Holt Renfrew) in “Ultra Violet” and “Ultra Orange.”

  • Colored eyeliners are perfect for summer season! They brighten up your eyes and give a fun, youthful vibe. Take advantage of them this summer!

  • Of course you want a "healthy glow", but the name says it itself- Healthy-, so please avoid the harmful rays of the sun UVA/UVB and invest in a good SPF. Don't you worry, because you can still get that summery glow by using powered or cream bronzers (there are so many options out there).

I really like braids too. They are quick and easy to do and they just make your hair look like you put in more effort than you did. A few small braids of braiding all of you hair can give you multiple hairstyles.

I really like the pastel bluish color of nail polish that you have pictured. I haven't painted my nails in forever! I should do that soon.
