    While the summer quietly passes by, clearing the path for burgundy leaves and hot bourbon toddies, I’ve been wondering about something – isn’t it just the right time to clear our beauty checklist for some old school entries? Just like the morning dew accentuates the simple beauty of this season, it often inspires you to pour a few fresh drops of back-to-school beauty treatment for yourself – a real do-it-for-you sweet kind of temptation.

    Back to basics

    First of all – fall in love with your skincare – it’s an essential base for all our makeup and fashion endeavors. Start your days with a shower, a hydrating face cream for a softer skin, brush your hair and teeth gently and use a cold spoon trick for fresher eyes. Keep your skin healthy with masks, natural oils and morning facial massages. Modify the list of skincare products, making sure it doesn’t contain any chemicals that could damage your skin, i.e. unhealthy oils and parabens. Whether you prefer DIY simple skin care or a professional approach, either way is a good way when pretty matches healthy.

    No matter the length, nourished hair is a must if you want the hairstyles on your wish list to look good when you finally try them out. Quality shampoos, natural oils, hair masks, massages and quality brushes give you the healthy base you can use to play with style choices, just like with skin care and your make up.

    Particularly trendy lately, healthy long hair matches any outfit you chose and it allows of carefree hairstyles like ponytails, simple braids, free edgy bangs or voluminous sleek buns. It can make your entire look quite compelling. There’s a broad range of choices for hair-accessory lovers worldwide. You can find plenty of high-quality hair extensions online in Australia.

    Hair extensions are always the right choice for a newer and fresher look, whether your checklist is on a casual or a chic side. Right now, long hair reigns supreme. Choose among beautiful color palettes or pull off some simple natural hair colors which you can accessorize with a high bold bun, waves and curls, or straight long hairstyle which is highly accentuated lately as a fashion ”yes”.

    Play with makeup

    Expand your makeup horizons and don’t be afraid to experiment – a touch of mascara and a natural shade for the eyes, with bold and natural brows, a slight touch of peach or strawberry on both of your cheeks, neat contour and bold lipstick will give you the look that you’ll just love. If you prefer shine and diamond, i.e. stunning cat-eye makeup, accompany that with a lip gloss or a tinted lip balm. Also, for girls that love natural or a nude look, highlighter and a hydrating lip balm are a must have. And last but definitely not the least – you can always skip the routine by using the ultimate trick that never got off of our beauty checklists – no makeup except red lipstick.

    Overall, a good deep care routine is irreplaceable when it comes to your skin and hair. When you take your time to prepare your favorite cake from scratch, you always pay extra attention to the finishing touches – do the same thing with your beauty routine and the way you express yourself; make your beauty checklist both the base and cherry on the top.
