If you ask us, summer is probably our favorite season next to Christmas. There’s just something about feeling the heat on our skin and the thought of beach waves that make us extra giddy here at the Glamourbox HQ.
With the season reaching its peak, one thing we haven’t stopped experimenting with (this is probably innate in all of us) is creating a multitude of looks that are perfect for any sunny occasion!
Check out these three looks that are super easy to pull off, whether you’re at the office, on vacation with family, or partying at Boracay with friends:
1. Woke Up Like This
We love stalking celebrities like Taylor Hill and Kendall Jenner on Instagram, and we have to admit: we sometimes envy their makeup-less selfies that scream #wokeuplikethis! And though most of us wake up with tousled hair, dry lips, and a pale face, you can easily cheat this with Pixi by Petra’s Summer Solstice Set! Keep lips moisturized while adding a hint of color with their award-winning Tinted Brilliance Balm, and achieve a healthy flush with their Sheer Cheek Gel!
2. Ripe and Rouged
One thing we love when travelling with friends is being able to catch up and sharing makeup! (Even though in most cases, you only share one bathroom). If you’re pressed for time and you need to come up with a look in less than five minutes, Pixi by Petra’s Sweet Succulence Set comes with an Endless Silky Eye Pen that you can use to line lids (or smudge to create a softer effect), and a Succulent Lip Twin that adds some rouge to both cheeks and lips.
3. Smokey Strokes
Want a fool-proof look to wear at this year’s LaBoracay party? Smoke it up with the Endless Summer Set—just mix two Endless Silky Eye Pens to create a sultry look (you can use your fingers to smudge and blend!), and downplay your lips with Pixi’s Shea Butter Lip Balm! It’s an instant head-turning #FOTD that’s best-paired with a bikini!
