So there I was in my hotel room in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico with my bathing suit, suntan oil, and I was ready to be kissed by the sun. But, uh-oh, I also forgot to shave my legs--thank God I brought my Veet! I quickly applied it thoroughly and voila! In less than a half hour, clean, sleek, soft legs and I was ready for my golden tan.
Celebrity stylist, Jennifer Hitzges tells her clients that your legs are your best accessory this summer. Baby doll dresses and mini skirts are everywhere and you really want to have smooth legs for the beach trends as well as day and night dresses. Veet keeps your legs smooth for up to twice as long as shaving. They have a range of products for different skin types as well as different scents. Itâs your first step to a confident summer look and that camera ready glowing skin.
Here are some summer beach dos and donâts by Jennifer Hitzges: Be sure to compliment your touchable smooth legs with a bright pedicure. Do put your best leg forward on the beach in a bold print bikini--be confident and create your own look. Take a walk on the wild side and mix an animal print bikini top with a solid bottom. Mix a stripe with a print for an update on the nautical look. Iâve seen many places to buy bikini tops and bottoms to mix and match. Do start with a clear beach bag and fill it with a boldly patterned towel, a sheer tunic cover up (that looks great with your bikini), and metallic flip flops. Try a citrus or sherbet color to accent your new metallic flip flops.
Jennifer also adds, donât forget your oversized plastic frame sunglasses (choose a color other than black or brown--white is in style. I used to think these types of glasses were too big on me, but I bought a few inexpensive pair of glasses and I wear them all the time because they protect my eyes and keep away those ugly crows feet at the corner of my eyes.
For the beach, Jennifer says to make that beach texture hair work for you. Loosely tie a scarf in your wind blown hair for that undone look. Headbands are great to have on-hand as well â thicker ones will keep even the most unruly tresses in check! This is a must in hot weather to keep your hair out of your face and also saves a lot of time. But, of course, headbands can be worn anytime of the year. Donât forget to pack an elastic waist skirt--use it to cover and also double as a strapless baby doll dress to wear at your favorite barefoot beach bar once the sun has set.
Again Jennifer is right. When youâre out in the sun and then suddenly, want to go out for a casual dinner, slip your skirt back on and no one will know the difference. I brought some bungled bracelets and earrings in my beach bag and dabbed on my lip-gloss and I was ready to quench my thirst with a margarita and fill my tummy with salsa.
Jenniferâs advice for a night out is to slip those smooth
Veet legs into a micro mini and dare him not to touch. Dresses and skirts are barely there this summer. Keep your legs smooth with
Veet perfection and your ready for the trends. Minis come in many shapes and sizes--choose your fit. Try slim and short for night--go for a bubble hem or a breezy flowing hem line for day. The big colors are electric blue, magenta and citrus. Metallics keep you shinning all night long.
Fitted or floaty mini, your confidence will light up the night. Donât forget for a daytime look, pair your minis with a sweet, flat simple thong sandal. Wear with a belted topper coat or cropped jacket during the day. Do take your mini into the night by adding some inches. Do add some inches with a platform shoe or wedge. Shoes are sky high this summer already giving you a leg up. Donât leave the house without shimmer lotion to highlight smooth legs
Donât weigh yourself down with a big bag. Carry a clutch bag--grommets and beadwork catch the light. Do carry the essentials--try a silver eyeliner to brighten the corners of your eyes. Update your smoky eye by adding a full line of metallic under your black liner donât forget mascara is a must. Try a color mascara just on the tips of your lashes.
Do choose a bright lip stain that can double as a blush just on the apple of your cheek--try a high shine dab of clear gloss just in the center of your lip. Do accessorize--choose a cocktail ring or oversize bangle. Mix materials with metallics and combine pieces that have a global feel with natural elements of wood. For brights choose Lucite bangles and chunky necklaces.
