Every year the in the summer, the beautiful (and usually very quiet) southern part of Long Island is taken over by beauty, glamour, fashion and parties! Here’s a little style barometer from the hotness that currently is the Hamptons.
A little taster of all the great magazines you can pick up in the summer in the Hamptons, for any fashion/beauty/style junkie. They are a very good read indeed and give you an instant update on what is what & who is who out here.
Hampton’s polished perfection
The look out here is very much about naturally polished beauty, the “I just got back from the beach and I look this good naturally”. Healthy American beauty with a bronzed & glowing skin. Go a little smokier on the eyes for nighttime or simply add a brighter lip on your way to the next event.
1. As always when spending lots of time in the sun, start with a rich and nourishing moisturizer – preferably perfume free. Then, using our treatment No Show Concealer, target areas that need coverage with the stick side (usually under the eyes, around the nose and chin). Next, use the liquid side to perfect complexion and add a ultra healthy glow. This can be blended all over the face OR for a sheer & subtle glow, simply apply to top of cheekbones, bridge of the nose and onto lids, all the way up to eyebrow.
2. Next, dip a bronzer brush into the Sunkissed bronzer and buff gently into complexion, focusing on where the sun would naturally kiss your face (cheekbones, apples of the cheeks, forehead, nose, jawbone). Blend well. Use residue on brush to dust bronzer all over the eye lid, building a little for more pigment intensity.
3. Fill in the upper waterline with our waterproof In Liner. Use small, short strokes and apply as close to the lash root as possible. Make the line a little thicker towards the outer edge of the eye and flick line slightly upward and outward, then smudge with a cotton swab. Curl lashes and follow with waterproof Lash Kapow mascara. Let each layer dry before applying the next.
4. Finish off with the Pouty Pop Crayon in Barely Bitten for that perfectly kissable natural nude lip.
My favorite Hamptons hangout by far: C/o the Maidstone hotel and the living room restaurant. It’s a boutique hotel with tons of personality and charm where each room has it’s own concept and style (as this one above). The Living Room restaurant by far has the best food and most delicious cocktails out here. I adore sitting in the garden or on the porch on a late afternoon – the bar & restaurant on a weekend evening is the best people watching out here!
