The days are longer, the cocktails are flowing and layers are coming off – hello summer! For us beauty lovers, this is probably the most exciting time of year: new vibe, new style – and always paired by that sun kissed summer glow.
You would have noticed coral was bigger than #womancrushwednesday in 2014 – well, not anymore!. This summer, orange is where it’s at. With Rhianna leading the way, you can trust this is going to be a hit. Nails on both hands and feet, shadow on the eye (blend well ladies – please!), and lips will be adorned with the shades of orange – from edgy burnt tones right through to striking brights. It’s fun, fierce and bold – prepare to turn heads, this one is for the woman with confidence.
Speaking of orange, fake tan’s this season will be none of that – because we now officially have a solution which produces a tan in the same 2 hour timeframe, minus the tangerine tinge. And that is thanks to the girls at Loving Tan – and given that we used it to create a bronze, balanced colour on our model Olivia (aka yours truly) on our latest campaign, we can testify this indeed is the real deal. Inspired by celebs like Beyonce and Jess Alba who always look perfectly glowing, make sure this is on your summer wish list.
Finally, and we can’t finish without saying this, we will be seeing that luxe beach everywhere. Babes all over the nation will be pairing gold, particularly in their eyeliners, with dewy skin, enriched by nothing else besides tinted BB cream. The effortlessness of this is the epitome of summer – embrace it girls.
