Easy Breezy Summer by Becca

Photography: Rachel Elaine Photography

Summer is here and finding that perfect look is always a dilemma . It's too hot for full hair and makeup so TSS Dolled Up Contributor, Becca, compiled a guide for the perfect effortless summer look. 

Easy Breezy Summer
by: Becca

Nothing says summer quite like beachy waves! Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray is just the thing to help you achieve that look even if you live no where near the ocean . Spray freshly washed and slighty damp hair all over, then separate into four sections and braid . Let your hair dry for 15 minutes then remove braids and scrunch hair and voilĂ , perfect beachy waves ! 

Onto your fabulous face. Prep eyes for eyeshadow with a primer (my favorite is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion)  and sweep on a single shade from the Sonia Kashuk Shimmering Sands Quad (super cheap and available at Target!). 

TIP: Every cosmetic routine has two parts: skincare and color. Skincare is everything before cosmetics and color is all the fun stuff post skincare. Start your color portion of your makeup routine with the eyeshadow to avoid fallout from excess pigment or sparkles. 

Apply Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream evenly over face with a brush or fingertips. CC Cremes are a great summer option because they are light, provide coverage, and help to correct imperfections and protect the skin with SPF. 

Follow up with the NARS  bronzer blush duo in Orgasm/Laguna. Apply bronzer on the outer perimeter of the face, bridge of the nose and mid cheeks, then apply blush on the apples of the cheeks moving upward toward the ear. 

Finish the look with a coat of Tarte’s  Lights Camera Lashes mascara and some Maybelline Babylips and you’ve got the perfect effortless summer look!

It Girl Interns Trend Report: Mascara


In our daily makeup routines, applying mascara is like the cherry on the cake.  Any makeup look isn't quite complete without it, and adding a few coats can make a huge difference.  But with all of the mascara selections out there, it's hard to know which ones are the best!  We turned to our It Girls, to see which mascaras they love the most.  Ranging from drug store brands to designer, there's a little something for everyone!

An affordable classic is Victoria's pick, Maybelline Great Lash.  Don't underestimate the price, as this little pink tube has long been praised by beauty experts as one of the very best.  We're also big fans of makeup products by Victoria's Secret, including Rachel's pick.  Alyx's selection, by Dior, is her absolute favorite.  "The brush is perfectly shaped so that you don't need an eyelash curler," Alyx says.  

Serena has 3 mascara favorites that she likes to use; including Benefit, Smashboxx, and Julep.  Plus, she shared her tips with us, on how to get the most out of your mascara!  "Always start with clean lashes and layer the coats on," she says, which is an important first step.  Next, "begin at the base of your lashes and gently wiggle back and forth as you move the wand up your lashes.  Repeat if desired!"  Another tip we love, is to "use a lengthening mascara on the very tips of your eyelashes to make sure your whole lash is coated-- this really adds length to your lashes, because the lacquer can extend over the tips of your lashes a bit," Serena adds.

What is your favorite mascara brand?  We would love to hear about the mascara you love to use!
