1. Let your hair down

When it comes to summer beauty, less is more, and, really, why argue with that? For makeup, it all starts with clean skin and a light touch. Ditto for hair. Prep locks with a shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, and if you can, let your hair air-dry. Work in a lightweight styling cream to enhance its natural texture and reduce frizz. Now all you need is an ocean breeze!

2. Get lovely lashes

Reach for a brush that will do more than just lengthen. Create colossal curves, pump up the volume and even “fake it” with the latest lash-enhancing formulas. Are they really real? Only you will know!

4. Try tailoring
