SEVENTEEN ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEAUTY: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas for You.

So I don't spend all my time at the beach just reading gossip mags; I like a good book. Beside the two summer romance novels I just finished, my friends and I keep going through this: SEVENTEEN ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEAUTY: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas for You.

 


All the beauty advice I have come to expect from Seventeen magazine is available in this new book! Packed with tons of awesome pics, each chapter offers detailed how-tos, amazing inspiration, and awesome advice. Written by Ann Shoket, editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine and some of the Seventeen’s editors, this is my beauty guide.

The book is so easy to navigate. All you do is look for your individual style and learn how to play it up!

  • Girly: mixes sweet and romantic with refined touches for pop and polish  
  • Glam: makeup that’s dazzling and dramatic
  • Classic: timeless beauty with a modern twist 
  • Edgy: strong, daring, and undeniably cool 
  • Boho: natural and earthy but way beyond neutrals

Each theme includes looks for every occasion: school, weekend, party, and date, plus essential tools and products. There are a ton pro tips and my favorite part, a celebrity-packed look book. This section features teen beauty icons such as Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, Zoë Kravitz, Freda Pinto, and more.

The book also features a hair guide with chapters on: Waves & Curls, Braids & Twists, Sleek, Updos & Buns, and Ponies. This section offers easy-to-do styles for every event, essential tools, and step-by-step instructions with photography. I have been trying out a ton of new styles, and it is all because of this book.

The final section of the book offers a comprehensive guide to getting the most beautiful skin and nails, plus the best makeup and hair for special occasions, from Sweet Sixteen to prom!

Look for SEVENTEEN ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEAUTY: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas for You on newsstands and in bookstores now. You can also buy it online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

HOT Yellow Nails for Summer.

One of the biggest trends for summer is bright neon colors. I can easily say that I am completely obsessed with neons and try to accessorize my outfits everyday to include this trend.

What easier way to do this then with your nails?! I went with a bright neon yellow nail color last week, and I'm in love with it. The yellow I choose brightens up all my outfits, and it's perfect for summer. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to follow the neon trend.

The yellow goes perfect with everything, including my iPhone! It just adds that perfect summer touch.

Here are some suggestions of yellow nail colors that are perfect and on trend for the summer.

 

Spoiled by Wet n Wild- mind your own beeswax
Essie - as gold as it gets
L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail - tweet me
Maybelline Color Show Off Nail Lacquer - fierce in tangy
Nicole by OPI (Kardashian Kolors) - ladies in the limelight

My Easy Summer Makeup.

In the summer, I'm constantly on the go. I need a fast and easy, but still pretty; makeup look to keep up with my hectic summer lifestyle. My daily makeup routine does just that, and makes it look like I spent much more time on it than I actually did.

I first start off with a tinted moisturizer, which even out my skin tone and gives just a bit of color to my face. Then I apply concealer around my nose, eyes, and other problem areas. I then use 2 foundations. One is a cream to powder and then I use a powder one over that. I use one foundation, the cream to powder one, that matches my skin tone and another that is a shade darker. The reason for doing this is to prevent my bronzer from appearing too harsh on my face; using a foundation darker than my skin tone helps by blending with my bronzer in order to create the perfect shade. It is also very important to do all of this very lightly. II know it sounds like I am applying a lot, but I am not. It all blends perfectly onto my skin and makes it look very natural. I then use my favorite eye shadows combined with a product called Glam Rocks, which are used to add sparkles around my eyes and to give the overall look that extra bronzy glow. I top it all off with Mascara - an absolute must, and a nude lip gloss which adds the perfect touch. This look is quick, easy and perfect for summer.

Here is a list of the products that I use everyday to create my look:

Face:
Nuance Salma Hayek Tinted Moisturizer - medium/deep
Mally Poreless Perfection Glowing Foundation - tan
Urban Decay Surreal Skin Foundation - hallucination
Rimmel London Shimmering Maxi Bronzer - sun love

Eyes:
Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick - trailblazing brown
Stila In the Light Palette - bliss and champagne
MAKE UP FOR EVER La Boheme Baked Eye Shadow Palette
LORAC Glam Rocks - Metallic
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara

Lips:
MAC Kissable Lip Colour - Woo Me
