(BPT) - Summer is here, which means it’s finally time to part ways with your knit scarves and cute wool jackets — at least for the next few months. It’s the season to bathe in the sun and enjoy the warm weather.
Summer is all about having fun! Flip-flops, shorts, iced coffee and long nights sitting outdoors. At the same time, the heat, humidity and sun mean you’ll need to make a few changes to your beauty routine.
And who better to bring in summer beauty tips than one of the season’s most radiant recording artists, Leslie Grace?
Show off your eyes. Even if you have a dozen pairs of cute, stylish sunglasses that you’ve been dying to wear, show the world your eyes. For a fresh summer look, put away the eyeliner and embrace a subtler look that highlights your natural beauty. Use a sparkling cream shadow for eyelids and accent it with your favorite mascara.
Lead with your smile. A healthy, white smile is always in style, especially on those sun-soaked days! But drinks like iced coffee, rose wine and soda (and what’s a summer without these?) can stain your pearly whites. Leslie’s favorite product to use for her teeth is Colgate Optic White Stain-Less White Toothpaste, which helps remove those unwanted stains.
Keep your hair healthy. Let your hair down and show off your natural beauty! For those of you with naturally curly hair, like Leslie, get in the habit of pinning your hair up at night so it won’t get tangled or damaged!
Love the sun, but with caution. You’ll probably be working on your tan this summer. At the same time, take precautions to protect your skin for the long term. This includes moisturizing your skin, hands and lips — and always make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen!
The perfect makeup combo. The secret for getting the most out of your makeup this summer is to match the season. Don’t shy away from bold, vibrant colors. For instance, blue eye shadow and red lipstick complement the bright colors of summer. For that extra pop and to really make a statement on your nights out, try glittery makeup for a glowing look.
Whether you plan to lounge by a pool, dance on a rooftop or spend your summer in the sand, let these tips serve as a foundation to your summer style. Doing so will give you that natural shine that matches summer’s glow.
