Bronzed Goddess Makeup Tutorial with


WOW! I can't believe it's swimsuit season already (I knew I should have been better about those new years resolutions)! Just this last week I got an e-mail from swimwear website asking me  to create a summery, beach beauty tutorial to go with any one of their super cute suits. I was in DESPERATE need of a new bikini so I eagerly agreed. It was hard to pick just one from their collection but I chose an adorable yellow laser cut bikini and created a golden, sunshine inspired look to go along with it. Take a look!

Golden & glowing! Since I never tan (no skin cancer for me, thank you very much) I wanted to show you guys how to skip the sun damage and fake your way to a beautifully bronzed complexion using just a few of my favorite bronzing products.  Check out the tutorial here:

It's as simple as that, really! Pair your brand new temporary tan with warm, golden tones on the eyes and rose gold accents on the cheeks and lips to finish off the look. You will absolutely radiate warmth from within.

If you're wearing makeup for a day at the beach you don't definitely don't want to be overdone. Keep it surfer girl simple - a few shimmery shades will  make your eyes sparkle in the sun and catch attention without being too crazy. Make sure to use waterproof products whenever possible as well, especially if you plan on going in the water. If your favorite mascara isn't waterproof - never fear! - Anastasia Beverly Hills' Lash Genius goes over any mascara and instantly makes it waterproof. I use it over everything!

A glowing summertime look needs tousled beachy hair, of course! Just mist your strands with water, twist it all up into a bun on the crown of your head and let dry for a few hours. When you take it down you'll get the instant effect of having spent the day surfing & sunning. Couldn't be easier!

Okay, so ... how CUTE is this suit!? The color, the cut, everything (it also comes in black if yellow isn't your thing). I was in love when I saw it on the site and I'm so glad it fits and looks good! I love that the lacy overlay adds volume to my upper body, making my pear-shaped figure look more proportional by evening out my chest-to-hips ratio.

However, if this suit is a bit too bare-it-all for you, never fear. The site has suits for every shape and style, from totally tiny to completely covered. See their full collection here and find one that fits your summer style! Happy shopping!
