8 Beauty Must-Haves For Looking HOT This Summer!

8 Beauty Must-Haves For Looking HOT This Summer!

By Cassie Brewer

One of the most fun things about summer is what you get to wear – or not-wear! Whether you’re donning the latest bikini fashions on the beach, bringing your style to a music festival, or just going for a drive in the sun, there are several new trends this summer that are even hotter than the weather!

1. Monochromatic Sunglasses

Black and white patterned sunglasses are all the rage this summer, bringing a high-fashion feel to any outfit. Pair yours with something bright like Miley Cyrus and her Emma Mulholland shades, or find a pair in virtually any print or variance on the shelves this summer.

2. High-Waisted Bikinis

Hailing back to a more retro feel, high-waisted bikinis are making a comeback, with more styles and colors available than ever before. Some women like the more modest feeling this kind of swimsuit confers — it’s definitely a big opposite to triangle string bikinis! They also look great on most any body type as they emphasize the natural waistline rather than hugging low on the hips.

3. Sun Hats

Stay out of the sun with a sexy sun hat. Sun hats are always a great go-to for your swimming suit, but the options in summer really are endless. Pair a floppy straw number with a scooped neckline, or with skinny jeans. Try out a dark colored wide-brimmed hat with long dresses and off the shoulder numbers.

4. Mini Backpacks

The backpack is back! Mini backpacks and style backpacks are certainly a must-have this summer for a cute addition to your look that is serviceable as well as stylish! Bring all your necessary items around with you at music festivals and events this summer.

5. Belly Chains

You’ve got the shades and the bikini, but have you tried rocking a body chain yet to complete your summer sun-kissed look? Belly and body chains are an eye catching way to amp up your bikini or bandeau top. Hot!

6. Sunless Tanner

One of the sexiest things these days has got to be protecting your skin from sun damage. Especially hard in the summertime when all you want to do is play outside and get that beautiful sun-kissed glow! Never fear, the latest sunless tanner to hit the shelves uses the latest science to bring you some sun in a bottle minus the skin cancer. St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion works on wet skin, and unlike other sunless tanners gets you a glow that’s even, not streaky.

7. Minimalist Jewelry

Minimalist jewelry is definitely trending this summer as a cool, effortless and yet elegant way to bring some creativity to any wardrobe. Especially important in summer is the ability to take an outfit from daytime fun to a dressy night out, and minimalist jewelry is a great way to achieve that. Mix and match pieces of different metals, shapes, or styles, and if you have a statement piece like an awesome ring or bracelet, don’t be afraid to throw it on with the rest of your ensemble.

8 .Denim Pieces

Jeans are my personal favorite – you can dress them up and down, and nothing says effortlessly cool like a good pair of blues. Denim is becoming trendy this summer for off-beat items like shoes and handbags, so be sure to be on the watch for these pieces. Don’t forget to try out basic jeans, like these awesome patch B-Sides, in your everyday look.

Introducing Kendall Jenner for Modern Muse Le Rouge

LeRouge_1366x700_MPP_FINAL_01

MODERN MUSE LE ROUGE
A NEW FRAGRANCE BY ESTÉE LAUDER
Be Daring. Be An Inspiration.

Estée Lauder unveils a daring new facet of modern femininity – Modern Muse Le Rouge, a new fragrance
inspired by the glamorous, more provocative side of a Modern Muse. Le Rouge reflects the woman who is
confident and sexy. She never goes unnoticed. It’s all about her signature color of red – which embodies her
style, attitude and undeniably powerful effect.

The Le Rouge Muse dares to inspire. She commands a reaction with her boldness, timeless glamour and
enviable confidence. Her style and presence always make an impression. She is bold, daring and sexy; she’s a
provocative inspiration to others.

Fragrance

A Fruity Floral Oriental scent, Modern Muse Le Rouge is a sexy contrast of rich roses awakened by ripe fruits
with a velvet cream accord that captures the drama of this muse’s personality. The innovative “dualimpression”
fragrance structure allows women to experience the fragrance through two contrasting accords:

  • Ripened Roses Accord: This facet of the fragrance captures the undeniable boldness of the Le Rouge
    woman and the color. Juicy fruitiness of Bourgeon de Cassis and Raspberry, contrasted with vibrant
    Pink Pepper and Saffron blends with the floral richness of Bulgarian Rose and the petally freshness of
    Rose Centifolia.
  • Velvet Cream Accord: Her sexy, provocative sense of style and dramatic presence are expressed
    through an addictive blend of full-bodied Madagascar Vanilla and the textural muskiness of Ambrette,
    refined with earthy, seductive Vetiver and Patchouli – and freshened with the lush femininity of
    Magnolia Flower and Jasmine.

 

“It was not just about capturing the scent of red, it was about capturing a state of mind, a vibrant, dramatic
attitude,” says Karyn Khoury, Senior Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Development Worldwide, The Estée
Lauder Companies. “This woman inspires others through her unwavering confidence, glamour and
sophistication. She lives her life to be noticed – and every ingredient in this scent was carefully selected to
reflect that.”

In order to achieve the perfect makeup look, you need to start with a flawless canvas. Let Pür Minerals help you minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections while making your foundation look even better with their selection of color correcting primers:

Years of ignoring how fair my skin is and sunbathing has left me with some unsightly sun spots on my face. And this time of year they definitely become more noticeable. I just had the chance to try the Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer and I am really impressed with the results.

To cover my age spots I used the peach primer. The formula is thick enough to coat well but feels very light going on my skin and absorbs instantly leaving a smooth surface ready for makeup. I really liked the texture of this primer and that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin or clog my pores. Will definitely be starting my daily makeup routine with this powerhouse.

My skin has a very red undertone and I was eager to see how the green Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer could even out my skin tone. As you can see from the photo above half my forehead has primer while the right half has none. The green primer totally neutralized the red tones in my skin leaving it uniform in color and looking much clearer.

The green primer had the same great lightweight texture and feel on my skin. Once I apply it I can’t even tell I’m wearing any makeup. This is great for covering acne, blotchy skin or discolored skin and I like how a tiny bit goes a long way to correct. A great product to create a clean canvas for your makeup.
