Hi! I'm Tara Kraft from Star Magazine and I've got tips for surviving the summer in style.
First of all, we all want to be bikini ready to summer, and bikini beautiful skin that smooth and hair free is a must. My little secret is the Venus Bikini kit. It’s a got a new trimmer, a Venus Embrace razor, which I love and Olay moisturizer all for just $10.00. So whether you're daring to go completely bare or looking to maintain that perfectly groomed bikini line, it’s got all you need to be confident in your swimsuit all season long.
Now next, when it comes to makeup, it’s all about eyes this season. We all want to have flirty, girly lashes. So a waterproof mascara is a must. My favorite is Covergirl’s Lash Blast Length. It makes your lashes 80% longer, and its super length brush extends your lashes from corner to corner making them so beautiful. Plus, its flexible elasto nylon formula won't flake or break, which is really important during the humid month. And, with the price tag of just $8.00, the look that you’ll get would simply be eye-catching and priceless.
When it comes to hair, the best and easiest and most sheik way to wear the summer is to pull it back off of your face. And, nothing is sweeter than pulling it back with the colorful hair accessory. I love the new water proof hair accessories from Scunsi, from Conair, they’re called Evolution and they’re $2.99 at supermarkets and at drugstores. They’re basically water wear for your hair. You can wear them as a head wrap or pull your hair back into a ponytail for instant beach glam. They come in a ton of colors and whether you're in the water or you're breaking a sweat, the colors won't fade and they also won't stain color treated hair.
Another thing is that we all have problematic hair during the summer. And believe it or not, 60% of women do not wash their hair everyday, and it’s super important in the summer to wash your hair everyday to keep it clean and healthy. You should choose a shampoo and conditioner that’s specifically formulated for your hair structure. So, if your hair is frizzy and you want to smooth it, look for something like Pantene’s Frizzy to Smooth shampoo and conditioner for medium to thick hair. They’re $4.00 each and they’ll tame frizzy and flyaways like no other.
Now, when it comes to season’s fashionable accessories, you should metallic especially for sandals and sunglasses. Think gold, think silver, think bronze, they’ll all work this summer. You should also be sure that you’ve got a beach hat. I love straw cowboy hat styles. They’re particularly have this season because you want to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. And also, most importantly, you’ve got to have a big beach tote to carry all of your things to the beach.
