It's the height of summer and you're at the top of your game. We bet you're in your best bikini-worthy shape, so why not show it off in a crop top and maxi like Jordana Brewster? Our experts dished out 10 tips to help you embrace your summer goddess style.
"(A) midriff is never a miss! Show off a little of your tan tummy with cropped tops and maxi skirts," says Chelsey Santry, Creative Director for Patterson J. Kincaid.
The newest fragrance from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers is Super G, a delicious fruity and floral scent. Since you're already feeling confident with your stunning summer look and physique, embrace it with the perfume's energizing notes of tangerine, nectar and warm musk. You'll smell as good as you feel.
"Wedges are way more stable than a heel but still give you the extra height to have a little more sass and pep in your step allowing you to go from play date to dinner and a cocktail in one fell swoop," says Rosie Pope, designer and star of Pregnant in Heels.
"When your skin color is sun-kissed, your nail color pops differently on your nails and toes," says celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann. "Shades like Lara's Theme, created with supermodel Lara Stone take on a whole new look against a great tan."
Give your already sun-kissed hair an extra boost with a lightening spray or clip-in extensions. John Frieda's Go Blonder spray is great for touching up your roots. Or you can lighten up your look by using clip-ins like Hairdo extensions. Celebrity stylist Ken Paves says to use ones that are two shades lighter than your natural color. "This way you can pump up your highlights and make them last without ever dying a single strand," Paves says.
"Healthy looking skin begins with hydration, so before you apply any type of tan intensifier make sure you have scrubbed off any dead skin and moisturize," says Sheranda Curtis, Sephora PRO makeup expert. We love Clinique's new Age Defense BB Cream, which hydrates skin, protects against UVA/UVB rays, AND helps to hide lines nad wrinkles. So go ahead and keep having fun in the sun!
Make your tan last long after the sun goes down with the NARS Sea of Love bronzing kit. The set includes blush, bronzer, illuminator and lip gloss in shimmery golds and pinks to help bring out your peachy glow.
