With hot summer weather comes beach babes, surfer dudes, and sun-kissed glows that create an eye-catching contrast when worn with summer whites and feminine pastels. Tanned, glowing skin also brings with it a need to make a few adjustments to your beauty routine and cosmetic kits.
While white is the classic, go-to shade for enhancing your summer glow, summer is a time to brighten up our wardrobes and beauty routines, and play around with flashy colours and patterns.

NAIL TREND: 4 STYLISH SHADES THAT AREN'T WHITE
From Chanel's pastel blue mask that took over models eyelids on the spring 2016 runway, to Christian Dior's subtler take on spring colour that came in the form of pale pink eyes, lips and cheeks, it's safe to say that pastel shades of pink and blue reign as the colours of the season. So why not translate the trend from your face to your nails?
Romantic, soft and girly, pastel pink nails are a great alternative to the white polish we often lean towards once summer comes along. Wear pastel shades of pink with short, slightly rounded nails to give your summer outfits a stylish and feminine appeal.
Bright, energetic, and warm, orange is the perfect colour to emanate the good vibes of the spring-summer season on your nails. This season, opt for a pale shade of orange over a bold one to bring a soft, feminine touch to your outfits, and allow more versatility. With pastels on-trend this season, pale orange is the way to go!
A retro and ultra feminine shade, lilac is a must-have for spring-summer 2016. Not only does it match the décor of the season, but it adds a touch of life and colour to an otherwise simple ensemble.
Who said beige had to be boring? With a tanned, sun-kissed glow on your hands, beige makes for the perfect contrast, giving you a sophisticated look that compliments just about anything you wear.
