Summer Beauty Tips to Keep You Looking Good

No Heat Styling

First things first, let's talk about our hair. Try an alternative to using heat on your hair this summer. Wear your hair braided in cornrows or french braids which feels cool on your scalp. Take those braids for a curly braid out. You can also twist your hair for the same look. Or, you can rock a cute ponytail or even a bun as a protective style.

Pick Sunglasses that flatter

When choosing the perfect pair of sunglasses, you want to be sure to choose sunglasses for your face shape.  Here's a quick and easy guide to follow.

*If your face is Heart-shaped - Aviators will look good on you.

*If your face is Round - Angular and rectangle sunglasses will frame and lengthen your face.

*If your face is Oval - Rectangular lenses add angles to soften the curves of your face.

*If your face is Square - Round sunglasses will offset a strong jawline.

Wear Your Favorite Summer Nail Color

It's easier than ever to do a DIY manicure right at home. Summer nail colors like red, orange, yellow, blue, and bold pink are always a good choice. But this year pastels and nudes are trending this summer too. Oh, and white nails are always chic.

Don't Forget the Sunscreen
