Your Go-To Summer Look

By: Salma Ahmed

With summer hitting its peak we have to face the decision of how we want to renovate ourselves. After spending months hiding under layers of clothes to stay warm and keeping our summer purchases a secret as to not risk hypothermia, it is finally time to embrace the sun and our newly found summer aesthetics. 

One of the most summery and yet easiest looks to do for the summer is a simple clean, rosy face paired with big hair full of volume. To achieve that there is no need to use a ton of products; a creamy red lipstick is your perfect companion for the summertime, use it on your cheeks, nose, eyes, and lips. Add a light glowy base with a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream for the ultimate summer makeup look.

As for outfits, the best way to go this summer is with something light and flowy and preferably loose fitting. Dresses should be your go-to as they will take away the stress of trying to find the perfect top and bottom combo. Go short or go long, depending on your preference and the occasion, but experiment with different styles and lengths considering that you can never go wrong with a dress.

If dresses are not your thing then you can go for a blouse paired with a pair of shorts of straight jeans, ideally in this summer's official color, pistachio green. The toned down shade of green has been all over Instagram, incorporated in outfits in many variations but most prominently in statement tops. And if adding colors isn't your thing then you can stick to neutral shades, most suiting white and beiges.     

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with your look. From new colors to shorter and riskier silhouettes, the summertime is ideal for testing out something new.
