Effortless beach babe…it’s a look we all aspire to but few achieve. Here are some key steps to absolutely nailing the beach babe look.
Less is more when it comes to the beach babe look. Try to get a tan in ahead of your holidays, as a good tan will eradicate the need to wear so much concealer or foundation. Invest in an excellent waterproof mascara, or better still, have your lashes and eyebrows tinted so you don’t need to worry about them. Invest in a really good, long-lasting matt lipstick that you can put on in the morning and it will last all day. Minimal effort – maximum impact.
Achieving true beach hair is so hard for most of us, but is key to the beach babe look. The biggest problem is frizz, which comes as part of the territory on windy days on the beach. Condition your hair with an anti-frizz treatment ahead of your holiday to keep the frizz at bay. Then quickly use a mousse or a textured spray to get the tousled ‘mermaid’ look each morning. If you do go in the water, pile your hair on top of your head with a clip so it doesn’t actually get wet and ruin your crafted beach babe’s hair!
Nailing the swimsuit
There are so many great swimsuit options out there – both one and two-piece, which you’ll want to have a good selection for in summer. There’s actually no need to go designer on this; a flattering cut and the right shape for your body type is far more important than whether the swimsuit is in fashion.
Finally, you need an effortless dress that can be thrown over beachwear for an al fresco dinner. Go for something like a vibrant purple maxi dress. You’ll find a choice of glamorous purple maxi dress available at AX Paris.
Now, this is where you want to splash out. A designer pair of sunglasses, an oversized hat and a top beach bag all make for effortless style. These items can be thrown on at the last minute over shorts or a purple maxi dress for instant glamour.
So there you have it. A bit of careful planning and you can achieve effortless style and beauty every summer day.
