Last Days of Summer: Vacation Beauty Part 2: Lips & Nails

We are grabbing our chance to squeeze the most out of the last days on summer, shaking things up beauty-wise. Lips and nails are next! They may be small details, but what a world of difference. Goodbye pale lips and tame toes, we can go a bit wild…

1. Go for the Bold Lip

Bold red lips are still huge for this fall. While you may stick with the neutral tones for a workday, a great red lipstick can be perfect for your trip. But you always want it to be the right red. Follow this guide here to help pick the best shade of red to work with your skin tone. In order to make your bold lipstick look it’s best all night long, prep your lips by exfoliating them and dabbing on some coconut oil before applying your lipstick. Take a look at our lip-care guidelines here.

2. Go for the Nail Art

Nail art is not just for little girls. In fact, it is making a huge splash in fall style. Step away from the simple, solid colors and step into patterns.   You can start off easily with a grey base color and a single straight line of accent color. Click here for a video tutorial on drawing nail lines without using stickers or tape. Or you can go wild with a splatter effect created by using a variety of bright colors. Find a salon near you that uses safe nail polish not tested on animals or try it yourself with Deborah Lippmann’s line of nail polish.

There’s no need to stick to your go-to routine when you are adventuring. On your vacation, be bold, be fresh, and let “new” be the name of the beauty game.
