The Easy Breezy
Sometimes it’s all about keeping it simple with a “no makeup-makeup look” and smooth, sleek hair for summer. Keep your hair straight with the help of a flat iron and add some serum to minimize frizz. You’ll still need makeup to achieve that completely bare look on your skin but, you’ll need only minimal products, which really is a plus during the hot summer months. Think champagne-hued eyelids, a pinch of pink cream blush on the cheeks, and a summer plum shade on the pout. You can really get away with the phrase, “I woke up like this.”
Pop and Waves
It’s amazing what a couple of “cool girl” waves can do for your confidence and summer strut! Whether using a curling iron or a flat iron (yes, you can get waves using a flat iron), the key is to keep the curls loose with some movement. You’ll also want them to look naturally texturized around your face. Basically, the idea is to make your hair look like you didn’t try too hard. To complement these waves, think “pop.” Summer is synonymous with color and we want to see that pop of color on the lips. Try vibrant hues like orange, hot pink and even purple to give your face an instant wake-up call! Now strut into that pool party and serve some face while you’re at it.
There’s no need for perfectionism when it comes to this hairdo. The messier, the better! Glamsquad’s retro ponytail is easily achievable with the help of some hair teasing and hairspray. Use your fingers to pull a bit of the hair from the root and then spray. Want to look like you’re Bridgette Bardot on a yacht in St. Tropez? Then you’ll need a winged eyeliner; one of Glam Squad’s most popular request. Go for the glam drama with a long black lined eye and perfectly pink pout for that “oh la la” effect.
80’s Summer Queen
You can’t have summer without some braids and we are rocking this particular look with a side part of your choice and a French braid on the alternate side for that “luxe punk” effect. Whether Beyonce’s Lemonade braids or braid crowns — whichever is more your style, make sure to step it up a notch with some neon inspiration when it comes to makeup. For this big trend, Glamsquad went bold with thick Turquoise liner on the top lid and then a touch of blue on the lower eyelid. Laying poolside never looked so good!
Do you want to look like a bronzed goddess this summer? I hope the answer is yes because you’re bound to turn heads on the boardwalk when you look like JLo’s twin. This is one summer look that never goes out of style: The bronzed beauty; and it’s as easy as it sounds. You’ll need bronzer to dust and highlight the cheekbones. Keep the dabbing light; you don’t want to look like a glowworm! Enhance the flesh toned hue of your lips with something that matches and dust some bronze shadow to tie the look together. When the weather is hot and sticky and you still want to have a fab hairstyle, so go with the undone bun. Go for a top knot or one at the nape of the neck like you see here. Use some bobby pins to keep in place.
