It’s Summertime, the livin’ is easy, and the last thing you want is a fussy beauty regimen to kill your vibe. Our girl Danielle Cirilli shows us how to take the easy way out, creating a look of natural hair and dewy makeup to hold up on the hottest of summer days.

For a natural hair look, Danielle advises working with your hair’s natural texture.  If your hair naturally is wavy, use a lightweight balm, like Bumble & Bumble’s Cityswept Finish spray, in combination with a thickening spray, like Bumble & Bumble’s Thickening Dryspun Finish, and letting the product work with your natural wave. For those with straight hair, use the same thickening and finishing products, then take to random pieces of hair with a 1” curling iron. The trick to achieving a natural wave look, she says, is to not curl the ends of your hair.

The best partner to natural hair is a soft, natural look for your face. Mix a light moisturizer with foundation, or add a bit of moisturizer to your tinted moisturizer, apply as you usually do. Use shimmer powder, mixed with a small drop of baby oil, to highlight your brow and cheekbones. Apply a cream blush (we love Orgasm by NARS), a coat of mascara, and a bit of clear gloss to your lip.
