Obviously all summer fun must begin with sunscreen. We are huge advocates for slathering on the cream to keep our skin healthy and looking great. No need to reach for any SPF higher than 30 as it only brings more chemicals into the product.
Since we’re starting at the beach, a swimsuit is a necessity. We are loving a sexy one piece at the moment. Ruching around the waist is figure flattering and sweetheart necklines work well for most. As a cover-up, choose a printed maxi dress for it’s pure summer appeal. Tie on a cute head scarf to tame your hair from the ocean breeze, then slide on easy sandals to protect your toes from the hot sand.
Makeup-wise, don’t go overboard. Heavy foundations can melt leaving a caked-on residue. Try a tinted moisturizer, and use waterproof mascara to avoid raccoon eyes. A tinted lip balm with built in SPF will protect your pout and provide shine.
After the beach it’s time to eat. How about a little al fresco for your dining pleasure? Let your hair down as the sun sets so your head scarf becomes an evening wrap. Now add a stack of bracelets or pendant necklace to transform your daytime beach attire to an evening appropriate ensemble. Don’t forget your wedge sandals to complete the look.
Calling all sparkle, it’s time to dance! Let’s make a quick, but effective switch from printed maxi to body con sexiness. Must haves? Sassy stilettos, dangly earrings and a chain link purse. Bonus points for a red lip and smoky eye. How is that for day-turned-night drama?
