The Best Beauty Accents Of The Season

Have you ever noticed how some people look like they own the summer? You see them and know that they’ve done something (or a lot of something`s) right, but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is that makes them look like the sun was created to shine on them. Allow us to share five sexy secrets that will make even the brightest sun (and more than a few guys) take notice of you this summer.

The trick is to accent your features. No need to over do it. A few simple beauty tips will have you turning heads with the best of them.

What part of you do people see most of in the hot summer? Your skin. To take it from okay to fabulous, start with an exfoliant. Why not use the sand? It’s all around you at the beach and it’s free. It’s one of the best scrubs you can get. Don’t neglect your back. A bare back is one of the sexiest accents you’ve got. After your scrub, mist on sparkling body oil. Skin that is buffed and glistening will always stop traffic. No matter where he looks, you look great.

Think red lips are too much for summer? Not if you opt for a subtle stain and a hint of shine. If lip stains are too heavy or drying for you, try a powder check color in a shade suited to the natural color of your lips. Simply rub it into your lips and you’re good to go. It will stay longer without the shine of a balm or gloss but may feel cakey without it.

Add the colors of the sea to your eyes and the night will belong to you too. To outlast any temperature or hours of dancing, choose waterproof liners to color your lids – the fat liner pencils work perfectly. Go with blue that reflect the color of the sky and greens that rival the palms. Always finger smudge and pat gold shadow over your lids for a perfect finish. Black mascara only please. Save the colored mascara for a subtler eye color day.

Don’t overlook the power of your hair when you’re at the beach, out for a run or making waves on jet skis. One fabulous accent for the summer is the braid. We’re talking about strategically placed braids that control your bangs or keep your hair from blowing out of control, braids that blend with va-va-va-voom waves or crazy curls or sleek and straight. Whatever your style, a well placed braid can be super flirty and tons of fun.

Even after you’ve continued on your way, your scent will linger and make him think twice about letting you disappear into the crowd. Lemon and other citrus scents are fresh, light and exotic. They blend with suntan lotion scents and are never overpowering – unless you use too much and you wind up smelling like kitchen cleaner. Spritz a light citrus spray on the back of your neck and knees and over your hair to leave him wanting more.
