With Summer here, my beauty regimen translates to achieving the “beach” look without physically spending hours at the beach. Let’s face it though, spending hours at the beach certainly doesn’t equate to looking flawless!
Today I want to share a few simple tips and beauty products I snatched up from WINNERS that help me create the perfect beach look = beachy waves + natural sun-kissed glow.
Sun-Kissed Natural Beauty
Find the perfect BB cream with built in SPF and apply over freshly clean and dewy skin. Hydrated skin absorbs moisturizers much better. From WINNERS: L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream $9.99 compared to $23.99
Using a contour brush, sweep a matte powder that’s about 2 shades darker than your skin from the middle of your ear to just about under you cheekbone. Continue until you’ve created a desired shadow to accentuate your cheekbone. From WINNERS: IMAN Pressed Matte $14.99 compared to $27.50 / Contour Brush $12.99 compared to $32.00.
Using a blending brush, blend in the edges of the darker shade powder to eliminate any harsh lines. From WINNERS: Blending brush $7.99 compared to $14.00
Apply blush over apples of your cheeks and take your favourite shimmery bronzer and apply over cheekbones to create the perfect natural sun-kissed look. From WINNERS: NARS Duo Bronzer/Blush $$16.99 compared to $32.50 / Tuscan Hills Bamboo Bronzer Brush $8.99 compared to $12.00
If you’d like to increase your contoured lines, feel free to apply a highlighter just under your eyes, above your lips, and under the arches of your brows.
I’d suggest keeping your eye make-up natural with only some eye-liner, waterproof mascara and light eye shadow.
Working with a day old hair yields the best results.
If your hair roots are a little oily, apply a dry shampoo to the roots. From WINNERS: Percy & Reed London Dry Shampoo $12.99 compared to $25.00.
Prep your hair for heat and curls by applying a curl cream from mid-shaft to ends. From WINNERS: Macadamia Natural Oil Curl Cream $16.99 compared to $29.50.
Heat up a clip-free curling iron, and working with one inch strands, wrap your hair around your curling iron away from your face. As you release, pull the tip of your hair strand downwards for a more natural look. I highly recommend this tourmaline clip-free iron, it only takes a second for each strand and comes with a protective glove! From WINNERS: Eva-NYC Curling iron $39.99 compared to $90.00.
Finish off with some argan oil and setting spray by running your fingers through your hair for a natural look (as oppose to structured curls). From WINNERS: Macadamia Natural Oil Control Spray $16.99 compared to $26.95.
I picked up nearly all my beauty products from WINNERS Leaside, WINNERS Front Street and WINNERS Dixie Outlet Mall!
