Summer has to be the season that puts a smile on everyone’s face. Except for mine…no, don’t get me wrong I love the sunshine and the green trees and the warm scent that the summer breeze illuminates. But there’s just one problem I have with this season. I never know what to wear! In Winter I have no problem. I have dozens of coats, boots and scarves I can choose from. For goodness sake I could wear the same boots for a week. As for my make-up routine, I don’t have to stress. All I need is foundation, powder and a classic red lipstick, then I’m good to go. But when it comes to dressing up for summer, there’s so much to experiment with like different colours, shoes, and all sorts of ideas when it comes to applying make up. So I decided that no, I refuse to allow this season to daunt my mind! I will go out there and search for the ultimate trends that will make me look good for summer. So fear no more ladies. Take these 4 tips and you’ll be ready to take over the world this summer!
