12 Summer Beauty Trends That Are So 2010

12Jul10

Stash a few of these hair and makeup ideas in your beach bag, or debut some of these easy beauty trends at the office—either way, you’ll look sizzling this summer!

Try an easy, sexy side braid.

Amanda Seyfried smolders in smoky eye makeup and this summer’s hottest hair trend—a big, loose braid—like the ones seen on Alexander Wang’s spring 2010 runway. Not only is this braid gorge, it’s super easy to whip up. Simply pull hair gently to one side and braid loosely—the more unkempt it looks, the better. To add some oomph to your plaited prettiness, spritz in a volumizer like Fekkai’s Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel.

Get a sparkly smile.

A megawatt smile like Blake Lively’s looks just as beautiful off the red carpet. For a fast fix, apply a pink gloss with a bluish tint (like CoverGirl Wetslicks in Happy Hour) to lips: The cool undertones make teeth appear whiter. For longer-lasting results, minus the trip to the dentist, tryCrest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects. Need a touch-up on your way to the beach? Slip one of Colgate’s Wisp Mini-Brushes Plus Whitening Coolmint in your bag to freshen up on the go!

For a big change, have a summer fling with a newish hair color.

We’re used to her as a dark brunette on Gossip Girl, but it’s nice to see Leighton Meester mix it up when she’s not playing Queen B. Her “mane man,” hairstylist Charles Baker Strahan says, “Leighton likes to keep it fun—she’s willing to go out there and explore.” Her new honey-blond highlights look more surfer girl than Upper East Side princess. Love her new lightened-up look? Get it at home with Herbal Essences Shade-on-Shade Highlighting Kit

Skip the intense eye looks and dust on purple shadow instead.

When the weather is scorching, who wants to worry about smoky eyes smudging off? You can create a less-complicated, heatproof version with some purple shadow. To get pretty in purple like Keke Palmer, sweep lilac shadow (likeEstee Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow in Lavender) across your lids, up to the brow bone and under the lower lash line. Add some romantic, face-framing curls like she does here and you’re ready for a sunset summer date.
