We are well into summer and if you're lucky, you've got that sexy glow from a beach vacation or a long weekend by the pool. One of the best things about this season is getting a perfect summer tan. Complimenting your tan involves some bright colors, hydration and most of all sass.
Nail art has become a super popular beauty trend. This summer, a bright orange-red will offset and complement your tan skin. It's also a great way to add a pop of color to any look. Another great color for this time of year is a deep blue. Nail color is one of the easiest ways to amplify a look without breaking the bank or taking a ton of time. Keep summer alive with a blazing red for a hot night on the town or a pastel peach for office chic! Check out Best.com for some color ideas.
Another benefit of your glowing tan is less need for bronzer. Don't forgo using a highlighter though. A highlighter can add dimension to your naturally bronzed face. It also has the added benefit of hiding imperfections on your skin. Highlighters are a great addition to your makeup routine! They reflect the light off your skin, making you picture ready without too much shine. Look glam day and night with these suggestions from Sephora.com!
A tinted lip balm can replace a heavy lipstick in your summer makeup regime. Lips can get dry super fast after a day in the sun. With a tinted lip balm, you get the hydration and the color at the same time. A deep pink is a perfect go to color to have in your bag for anytime wear. With a nice tan the pink will be dainty without overpowering a look. If you are looking for a fierce night color, go with a bright orange or pink. These can come in several shades to match your tan.
