While summer is heating up, it is a no-brainer that our favorite way to cool off and have fun is a little vacay. And as Glam Queens, we obviously want to look as effortlessly chic as Gigi and Bella as they island hop as though they are literally walking off the runway. Here are a few pro Glam tips for you to keep in your arsenal to remain fresh-faced and Instagram ready for whatever fun, and photos, might come your way during your summertime adventures.



First, we all know how imperative it is to remain moisturized. Summer climates can ebb and flow like a beautiful billowing maxi dress, so finding the right one that is versatile and effective can be a challenge. We suggest Sundari Gotu Kola and Azulene Moisturizer for a dryer skin type, which won’t be too heavy, and is perfect for layering under makeup, or alone. If you’re more in the combination category, go for Eve Lom Rescue Oil Free Moisturizer—it will deliver just the right amount of moisture without feeling greasy. If you’re on the oilier side, use a moisturizer with a matte finish such as Estee Lauder DayWear Matte Oil-Control, which is perfect for that humid summer climate.



While we’re all trying our best to get bronzed and beautiful, we also all know by now that the right hair is key. Trust us, we know a braid of any kind is not going to let you down. The boxer braid is still doing its thing right now, and we are down with it. Boxer braids are perfect for any hair type, and for wherever the summer fun takes you.




With the basics covered, now we can delve into some of the more fun stuff that keeps your looks effortless. For the season, we love eyeshades such as 3 Concept Eye Shadow Palette or Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 Eye Shadow Palette… They will back that little bit of Glam Queen punch while making it look like you made no effort at all after spending a day sipping cocktails by the pool.



For nails, we are loving the glitter bomb look like Nails inc in Alexa Camo which is trending hard and in all the best ways. Get into it. Have any doubts? Your Glam App stylists are always here to help guide the way. Happy Summer Glamming!
