BeautyMani Monday: Multi-Color Geometric Nail Tutorial

Rather than choosing just one or two summer shades for this week’s mani, we went with a fun multi-color geometric print for an eye-catching statement on every finger! We love how the clean lines create a mosaic-like effect in popping shades of turquoise, yellow and purple (with a touch of coral-red!). Follow the steps below to try this design for yourself!

BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Double Braid Into Bun

braid into bun

A girl can never have too many fab up-do options for a night on the town, and we absolutely adore this simple double braid-into-bun look! Perfect for keeping you hair up and away during those warm summer nights, this sweet style is easy to achieve — just follow our steps below!

Braid Into Bun

Steps:

1. Part the front half of your hair into two sections to use for the braids.
2. Next, use the remaining hair to make a ponytail.
3. Make a messy bun using a hair-tie (and bobby pins if needed).
4. Section the thicker side of your front pieces into even halves.
5. French braid the front section into an inside-out braid.
6. Repeat with the back section.
7. Braid the last piece on the other side of your part.
8. Wrap the double braids down and under the bun, and fasten with pins.
9. Fasten the last braid up and around the bun with pins to complete the look!

BeautyBright Lips for Summer

Easily take your look from to day night with an accessory that can be paired with any outfit — a bright lip! As the temperatures outside increase, a clean face with less makeup becomes ideal. Instead of adding more eyeshadow or eyeliner, go for a bright lip for a look that’s both chic and nighttime ready! We especially love this look paired with a clean, monochromatic outfit to allow that bright lip to really take center stage. Not sure what lip shades to pair with that blouse or dress? Our handy graphic below offers some poppin’ lip inspiration (with some of our favorite summer shades!) to help guide you to your next hot summer look!
