Summer is a time to revamp beauty rituals to maximize skincare results, prolong makeup wear in rising temperatures and explore emerging beauty trends.
Hot weather and beautiful sun are a blessing to have but can also cause some beauty favorites to feel heavy and uncomfortable. Gravitate toward airy fragrances and breathable skin care that allows the skin to feel and look transparent. Lightweight textures are idea for maintaining healthy skin; opt for products that increase hydration and boost radiance. For more upscale summer events, schedule a day with some local experts for a makeup lesson, hair advice or fragrance layering. It’s worth a visit!
Many beauty brands celebrate the excitement that comes with summer. A time for travel, bright colors and making connections make this time of year so sensational. Around Los Angeles, a few select brands make it easy to fall in love with the eclectic mix of inventive hair, body, skin and makeup ideas alive in the beauty industry.
Discover fresh takes on how to feel and look invigorated this summer at some of the premiere LA beauty locations.
