Summer Beauty Tips for the Most Low-Maintenance of Women
To help you make the most of your summer, check out these summer beauty tips that are guaranteed to bring you maximum beauty with minimal work – perfect for even the most low-maintenance of women.
1. Choose a haircut that is easy to manage.
In the summertime, when the weather is fine, you want to be donning a hairstyle that has you looking (and feeling) refreshed. In other words, you want a haircut that requires as little maintenance as possible. According to expert hairdressers at the best salon in Dubai, the collarbone lob, ‘70s bangs, and a blunt bob are three of the most prominent hairstyles around the world this summer.
All three are suitable for most hair types, although a blunt bob is highly recommended for anyone who suffers from damaged hair. Seventies-inspired curtain bangs look effortlessly cool and will pair perfectly with a more bohemian wardrobe, while a collarbone lob is stunning for those with thicker hair.
2. Summer-proof your makeup bag.
By now, you probably know that your go-to products for the winter aren’t necessarily going to be the best option for the summer. Put away your heavy foundations and deep lip colors and instead get ready to focus on creating fresh-faced radiance.
One of the best ways to achieve this look is by mixing two to three drops of a liquid highlighter into your regular face lotion and using it to create a shimmery base. Next, apply a liquid bronzer across your forehead, chin, cheekbones, and nose. Your cheeks are calling for a cream blush, and your lips, a swipe of tinted lip balm, and then you are ready to go.
Other makeup products you may want to include in your summer collection include a vibrant lipstick or stain in a vivid fuchsia color, a slightly iridescent peach or rosy blush for a natural glow, and waterproof mascara with a conditioner to keep your lashes healthy. Last but not least, a golden or bronze eyeshadow palette will help you to achieve a softer take on smoky eyes.
3. Opt for beauty treatments that have long-lasting results.
The best beauty treatments are the ones that have long-lasting results. Brow tints certainly fall into this category as they instantly make you look slightly more put together, without making it seem that you have tried too hard. Similarly, eyelash extensions are perfect for those who want to spend minimal time on getting ready each morning (hello low maintenance!) but still want to make their eyes pop.
Additionally, deep cleansing and extraction focused facials help to reset your face for the summer months and enable you to walk out into the world bare-skinned yet glowing. Dermalogica treatments are ideal all year round (but especially in the summer) as they are extremely personalized and work to brighten the skin while also evening out the skin tone through advanced exfoliation.
4. Maintain your nails.
Summer 2019 calls for barely-there sandals, which means your toes are going to be well on display. For this reason, you want to devote some attention to your nails. What’s more, during the summer months, nail colors tend to be a little more fun and eye-catching, making it the ideal time to experiment.
Next time you go into the nail salon, opt for a bright and juicy color that is reminiscent of the delicious fruits you will be eating for the next few months. Bright oranges, corals, and pinks will help you to feel like every day is spent in the sun (even if you are actually in the office). Alternatively, for something slightly more minimal, look for a fresh and dreamy color (such as icy blues and min greens) that will bring some cooling relief to your look when it is scorching outside.
