Bronze Glowy Makeup

Bronzy makeup is a must for hot girl summer. What's trending in makeup right now is dewy skin, chrome eyes and pink blushes. I love the summertime for that natural almost effortless makeup look, looking sunkissed radiating a beautiful dewy glow. Everyone looks their most beautiful in summer.  I don't wear foundation in the summer because that just melts off your face. Instead I use a glowy sunblock and lots of highlighting products.  I have light medium skin tone and stay out of the sun so my face is pretty pale. I like to use a lot of cream and liquid makeup products in the summer to get that glossy glow. I find that liquid/cream products replicate sun kissed skin beautifully because it gives a radiant finish giving you that effortless glowy skin.  I want my makeup to look good in person, like a version of myself but better. You look your best when you feel your best. 

Above I featured style icons Sabrina Carpenter (who is known for her glowy makeup and pink cheeks), Jasmine Tookes, Laura Harrier, and Zedenya. I know so many people are obsessed with  Sabrina Carpenter makeup, with that glowy pink blush cheek and I’m chasing products for that look.  I'm going to give you all the products and steps for you to achieve the look they have!

Summer Bucketlist 2024

Summer Lookbook 2024 | Fashion Trends

These looks embodies my vibe for the summer! I'd call it Cool Girl Relaxed Vibes. If you want to feel stylish and current for this season I will share the top ten trends in summer fashion this year. Nothing here is really new, they just continue to be in the spotlight. So not much of a surprise from last year, they always come back again. The good news is that you probably already own most of summer’s key elements.

Don't forget about the three color rule when building your outfits. Keep your outfits to just three colors, it makes your outfit look more pulled together but also adds some dimension. The best outfits are made by creating some contrast, pairing wide leg pants with a slim top creates for a well rounded outfit. Black isn't always best in summer as a neutral, there are other neutral colors that won't be as heavy. Consider white or nude shoes instead of black. Asymmetric one shoulder tops are very much a happening look this summer. 

Linen is trending this season and the clean girl era has emphasized the beauty of simplicity. Linen pants are the epitome of effortless elegance. They give that laid back sophisticated look. It has a timeless appeal that goes beyond trends. Its something you will reach for year after year especially if you invest in a high quality pair. It's a breathable material and natural fabric that is perfect to wear in summer heat. You won't catch me in denim in the summer.

My Favorite Korean Sunscreens

American sunscreen is held back from using the latest greatest ingredients by the FDA.  European sunscreens, which are banned in the USA, have the latest technology in ingredients. Be sure to buy some from a farmacy next time you're in Europe. The FDA hasn’t approved any new UV filters since 1999.  Korean sunscreens use different chemicals as UV filters than Western brands and are classified as  functional cosmetics with skincare ingredients by the FDA which is why they are allowed to be sold in the USA. Korean sunscreens tend to be lighter in consistency since they are not using antiquated thick ingredients and don't leave a white cast on your skin. Everything on this list is a chemical sunscreen, without zinc, instead they use Tinosorb M - a commonly used sunscreen oversees and other next generation chemical filters. They all give a lightweight moisturizing feel with adequate spf protection.

Quiet Luxury Belts That Look Expensive

The best quiet luxury belts are low key, elegant and don't have a flashy logo. I've curated a list of belts with old money vibes that will make any simple outfit a little bit more elevated. You've probably seen these belts on fashion girles but never realized what it was because these belts truly master the art of whispering luxury, so the untrained eye wouldn't know how expensive these belts are. These belts are unique and the epitome of quiet luxury and add so much versatility to your wardrobe. These belts are sleek, subtle, and giving if you know you know.
