Its my first day back at work post Labor Day weekend, and I’m feeling a little blue. Summer’s barely over and I already miss my fun summer beauty routine. Luckily, I’ve got a solution. For my latest collaboration with Refinery 29 I nailed down the best brights that will help you feel summery even when you’re not at the beach getting a gorgeous tan.
When it comes to makeup, “I go one of two ways. I’m either all about a clean, radiant, and glowy natural look, or I layer on lots of color. I simply can’t walk through Barneys without getting totally sidetracked by every flashy product that catches my eye. Even though summer is on its last legs, my enthusiasm isn’t wavering.
With all the summer’s past weekend excursions to Montauk, my color obsession has gone off the charts. From the natural colors of the ocean, wildflowers, and sun to the bold and daring colors of margaritas, killer swimwear, and beach towels, I simply can’t help but feel moved. Okay, so I know it feels like summer is winding down, but this doesn’t mean that your sparkling beauty routine needs to as well.
Pop a bright pink on your cheek, line your eyes in green, or rock a mermaid blue pedicure. Whatever your colored desire, make sure you wear it with confidence, because these colors are the brightest of the bunch.”
Who says you can’t bring a little summer sweetness with you into fall!? To keep the sun and surf alive, don’t be afraid to experiment with eye-popping color.
