Summer is officially upon us and this sweltering heat requires us to swap our sneakers for something more light and breathable. It is time to slip into some sandals and show off the pedicure you’ve been concealing in your lace-up shoes. Picking the right sandals can turn out to be a little bit more difficult than expected if you take into consideration the height, price and style, but have no worries because I have picked out my personal favorites for the summer. I know that you will find at least one pair that might make their way to your closet.
Having a romper or jumpsuit is an essential component of every womens’ closet. These versatile pieces can be worn in really any setting and are perfect if you’re on the go. It’s a top and bottom in one and that is why they’re always my favorite for vacations. You can wear them for a simple trip to the grocery store or dress it up for a formal gathering. If you don’t know the difference between a romper and jumpsuit and just use the words interchangeably don’t worry. Rompers leg length are above the knee while jumpsuits’ go below the knee. Check out my favorites below that are perfect for any budget.
Sometimes less is better. This was the case for many of the Spring/Summer 2015 collections, where models displayed effortless looks using minimal makeup and simple hairdos. This summer you definitely don’t want to get caught in an embarrassing situation like having super-sticky lipstick or even worse having your foundation melting off your face. Take a glance at the beauty found throughout this seasons shows.
Instead of using foundation swap it with a nice and light BB cream which will not only cover small blemishes, but will also serve as sunblock; without it smelling like actual sunscreen. If you still have visible blemishes that you are insecure about you are welcome to add a small amount of powder foundation to the area for the extra coverage. To stop any problems you encounter with a shiny T-Zone blotting paper is your answer. Blotting paper will eliminate any unwanted shine and you’ll be able to do any touch-ups after you use it.
If you have visible redness in or around the cheek area after applying a BB cream try adding some blush which will not only camouflage the redness, but will ultimately end up brightening your face. If you want to sculpt and accentuate certain areas of your face add some bronzer to the top of your forehead, and on your cheekbones and jawline.

Lets not forget about our eyelashes. During the sizzling summer season it’s best to go with a water-proof mascara which will prevent you from having any smudges. When it comes to eyeshadows the choice is up to you, but remember to ditch the dark colors during the spring and summer seasons. That means no dark smokey eyes, in contrast lean to more neutral or lively colors. The same goes with goes with lips you can give them a “look at my lips” feel by using any pinks, corals, or reds. Alternatively, a lip balm will suffice this summer because with its added SPF and moisturizing benefits you just cant go wrong.
This seasons hair forecast calls for simplicity. Stop damaging your hair by using heat tools and start embracing more laid back do’s like your natural hair type, beach waves, braids, and various half-up half-down styles. Now if you want a more polished look a sleek high or low pony tail will do the job, except this will require a straightener depending on your hair type. I’ll soon put a link here to a post I will publish of my beauty recommendations which go along with this.
