Beauty Tips for Summer Occasions
If you’re invited to a glamorous ball, planning a flutter at the races or even a stylish picnic in the park, we have the perfect beauty look for every occasion.
At the Races
Patterned or plain dresses are the order of the day for this occasion. Team with chic high heels, an elegant clutch and a statement head piece for the perfect finishing touches.
Top Tip: To complete the outfit opt for long lasting make up that will last the whole day. Avoid a smokey eye as it doesn’t always look as good as the day goes on. Alternatively, go for a flawless complexion and a bold lip for impact.
Channel vintage-inspired fashion with floral prom dresses and a classic over-sized sunhat. When it comes to footwear, opt for a block heel – grass and stilettos are never a good mix.
Top Tip: To complete the outfit, create a look that is girly, pretty and feminine. Opt for soft pastel shades or punchy brights and keep your hair relaxed yet glamorous by creating loose curls.
On the River
Think nautical stripes, cropped trousers and simple summer tees. A smart meets casual occasion, the key is to find the right balance; think glamorous weekend in Monaco meets relaxed punting in Oxford.
Top Tip: To complete this outfit, keep your make up just as relaxed as your outfit. Prep the skin with serums, primers, BB creams and hard working moisturisers that make your skin look healthy, fresh and radiant. Use a tinted moisturiser and a touch of concealer for a natural and luminous look that lasts all day.
For black tie summer occasions, pull out all the stops with a floor length gown. Current on-trend styles include shimmering metallics, sparkling embellishments and the prettiest of pastels.
Top Tip: To complete your show-stopping style, try a golden goddess look. Contour and highlight your features with a bronzer and instead of trying just a classic black smokey eye, experiment with a gold smokey eye.
