Colors of the sun


- JAGUAR F-TYPE -spot_img

Your favorite hues can keep you in a bright mood.

A sheer wash of pink and peach across the eyes, cheeks, and lips is a K-beauty-approved look. Pick up a multifunctional product—a cream blush (K-Palette Lasting Cheek Tint) or a blendable lipstick (Sunnies Face Fluffmatte or Bobbi Brown Art Stick)—for an easy monochromatic look.

Bronzed beauty

Show off your golden glow—or at least, fake it—with bronze and earthy hues that give the face dimension. Stay away from orange tints to achieve that natural sun-kissed look. Remember to keep your brows full and feathery, easily done with Sunnies Face Lifebrow Skinny Pencil and Grooming Gel.

Color and highlight in the inner corners of the eyes is also a big trend. Apply Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color by drawing a ‘V’ shape for an illusion of a brighter and wider gaze.

Pucker up

Bright lips are the fastest way to put your face forward. Happy Skin Active ‘Love Your Lips’ Intense Color Butter Balm SPF 15 in Fierce will make you stand out even as you sweat or swim. Swipe on directly for full-on pigment, or in a light, dabbing motion straight from the bullet or with your fingers for a stained effect. Dare to experiment with gradient lips? Laura Mercier Velour Lip Powder (yes, powder!) lets you play around with different lip colors and color combinations. Simply apply the base balm and press the powder on your lips. Layer on for added intensity.

Hairless is also the way to go. Give hair removal lasers a try, like the almost painless Advanced Diode Hair Removal Laser offered at Bianca Festejo Salon to make your body even more beach-ready.

All eyes on your eyes

Pastel, neon, or Crayola-bright—pick any color you fancy, as striking eyes were seen all over. Go for a monochromatic eyeliner and matching mascara for a new spin on the classic look or apply painterly strokes on your lids without the need for blending.
