Summer beauty looks are about being glamorous and laid-back all at once. Sound like an oxymoron? Look no further. This season, we’re determined to channel our inner Bridgette Bardot: tousled hair reminiscent of a steamy romp, high impact liner, and sultry smokey eyes, all paired with natural looking skin. It’s safe to say we’ve got all our bases covered.

Hair

1.  Spray Oribe Après Beach Wave on damp hair and let air dry or diffuse with a hairdryer. This will give even the straightest hair a sexy post roll in the sack look.

2. Wrap a few face framing strands around a large barrelled curling iron, curling away from the face. Keep ends straight to get that undone look.

3. Apply Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray all over hair.

4. Rough up hair with fingers, and you’re done.

 

Skin

Glowing summer skin starts with healthy skin and body care. Exfoliate your face and body 1-2 times a week. A great facemask is the key to infusing skin with moisture. Charlotte Tilbury’s Multi-Miracle Glow is a great option. Once that’s complete, apply your favourite self-tanner evenly all over your body and face. We know sun causes more damage than it’s worth, so investing in a good self-tanner is key! Make sure to blot your skin dry after a shower for a long-lasting tan. Avoid excess rubbing with towel.

 

60’s Inspired Bold Cat Liner

1. Using Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick in Panther, I created a thick winged shape on top of the eye and connected it with the lower lash line to fully rim the eyes. Personalize your cat eye by working with your eye shape. Slowly build to your preferred thickness by starting with thin lines along the lash line for a more natural cat eye or going thicker for more drama and impact.

2. Take a kohl pencil and rim the water line (located just inside the lash line) to amp up the sex factor. This is something that will need touching up throughout the day/night as it tends to fade easily with all the moisture in the eye.

3. Apply a sheer layer of Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, blending with a brush or sponge. I prefer to use a domed brush and buff the product into the skin in a circular motion.

4. Lightly contour and highlight with Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow. To locate the perfect area for contouring suck in your cheeks and contour along the indent. I also like to apply a touch of contour to the outer edges of the forehead and under the chin. Highlight the area just above the cheeks, down the bridge of the nose, and add a touch to the cupid’s bow.

5. Add a sheer layer of foundation to the lips to tone down their natural colour without masking it. You want a bit of your natural lip colour to show through to avoid it looking too heavy.

 

 

Smokey Eye Paired With a Nude Lip:

Brigitte Bardot always had a fully made up eye that she paired with the palest of nude lip colours.

1. Prep the skin using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. Massage the cream into your face starting at the centre of the face and pushing outwards. Run fingers firmly along hollows of cheeks and along the jawline. This moves fluid out of the face, boosts circulation, and defines the angles and contours.

2. Using Charlotte Tilbury The Luxury Palette in Golden Goddess, seamlessly blend together each colour for a warm bronze smokey eye. Concentrate the palest colour on the inner corner of the eye and just under the brow. Place the darkest colours on the lid and around the outer corner of the eye. Lastly, blend the fourth colour into the crease.

3. Apply 2-3 coats of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara. Make sure to curl lashes first; this should always be done on bare lashes. Curling lashes really opens up the eyes.

4. After applying foundation, apply a hint of Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza to the contours
of the cheeks. Follow up with Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Moon Beach on the apples of the cheeks for a dewy hit of colour.

5. Mix a touch of Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G in Hepburn Honey with a light layer of foundation. Use your fingers or a brush to apply the colour to your lips, making sure not to apply too heavily.
