Summer is almost here and now that the semester is over Fashionistas from the streets of Boston to New York are minimizing their beauty regimes. In the summer there is no need to cake on the foundation or use the blow dryer daily. Instead, keep your look natural like this NYU Fashionista who I spotted in SoHo. The only makeup that she wears is liquid liner along the lash line and mascara. She is lucky to have flawless, even toned skin, but if you have acne or redness use a concealer stick and a lightweight tinted moisturizer with SPF. On the runways this season natural makeup meant sun-kissed, bronzed skin. At Michael Kors models wore Shiseido bronzing makeup, light gold shimmer on the eyes and brown mascara. Remember to only apply bronzer to your forehead, cheeks and jawline, never ever over do it. If you are too weary to try bronzer, then build up a faux tan by using the Kate Somerville Tanning Towelettes on your face and body. This Fashionista’s hair is at its natural texture, but she has the glistening, slick trend going on at the crown. This hair trend was spotted on several runways such as Alexander Wang, Alberta Ferretti and Prabal Gurung. Try Rachel Zoe’s hair stylist’s steps to mastering slick strands this summer.
Outfit-wise, this Fashionista is on trend with her printed maxi skirt and loose knotted tank. Try this similar skirt by Pepe Jeans with a cotton cropped tee for the day and a sheer button down knotted at the waist for the night. Her leather biker vest is the stand out piece in her look. At the beach this summer try a crocheted vest like this ombré one over your bikini top paired with leather strappy sandals and a maxi skirt.
