One week to summer: final summer beauty prep steps
All right, it’s not a drill anymore – summer is practically here. Luckily for you, we’ve been counting it down for weeks so all that’s left now is a few last minute tips. In summer it’s all about having some go-to long-lasting, natural and heatproof tricks in your beauty arsenal. Here are some final beauty prep steps to see you through even the stickiest of days.
#1 Learn how to braid
Let’s be honest, who can be bothered washing and styling their hair after every single trip to the beach? Learning to braid means you’ll have a few different hairstyles up your sleeve for when you don’t have the time (or the will) to shower between the beach and bar. Braids thrive in not-so-clean hair and are great for keeping your hair off the back of your neck on those incredibly hot days. Think milkmaid, fishtail, pigtails – the opportunities are endless once you’ve got the skills.
#2 Bikini wax
You may have gotten your underarms and legs under control since flowy dresses came back on the wardrobe rotation, but is your downstairs area prepped for bikini wear? If not, don’t worry – there’s still time! Veet Natural Inspirations Sugar Wax is an easy way to achieve smooth results on your bikini line at home. It contains 100 per cent naturally sourced ingredients including Argan Oil extract* and the spatula features a temperature indicator to ensure you don’t burn yourself. If you’re not confident around hot wax, there’s also the Natural Inspirations Wax Strips with Aloe Vera*. Both methods will leave you hair-free and silky smooth for up to four weeks!
*contains 0.1% w/w natural extract
#3 Lash and brow tint
Nobody wants to be the girl at the beach with too much make-up on, but if the thought of going completely bare-faced brings tears to your eyes, you should definitely try tinting. Darkening your eyebrows and eyelashes means you won’t have to fill in your brows OR wear mascara. Your brows will look instantly fuller and your eyelashes longer and thicker. Swipe on a tinted moisturiser with SPF and you’re good to go!
