Inspired by Spring/Summer 2014 fashion trends, our team developed a fresh and clean photo session featuring beautiful Jade Ava.
White can be a great color to wear during the summer to keep you cool and to look modern. Crisp white is a big trend in fashion right now and can be worn in a fitted dress as shown here.
You can opt for a tailored pant suit as well.
Bold pops of color were spotted strutting down the runway this season. Add a pop of color to your white with a handbag, accesory or makeup in cobalt blue, sorbet orange, or radiant orchid.
Another big trend that I am quite fond of is a bold floral and colorful print. Fashion stylist Ashley Kim arranged this outfit to showcase this trend.
I recommend trying a beautiful dewy finish to your foundation to showcase a bold lip. I used Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer to achieve a healthy glow. I especially love this product because it is sheer and looks like skin but has enough light coverage to hide imperfections. The SPF 20 is an added bonus. The lipstick color was custom mixed by using OCC Lip Tar in Yellow, Red, and Brown.
Another way to show some flair is by adding a bit of color to your eyes. I opted to skip a traditional black liquid liner for a bold cobalt blue. This shade is MAC Fluidline in Waveline. I love this type of liner because it wears durably especially in the summer heat. I recommend a hint of complimentary blush and a lip balm to balance the look.
As the temperatures heat up, the last thing you want to do is spend hours crafting your hair in a muggy bathroom. I recommend the use of sea salt sprays to add a bit of wave to emulate a beachy texture. I misted Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray in her hair and diffused it with her head tilted down to create texture. I then gathered it at the nape of the neck, twisted a couple of times as if creating a bun and pinned it in place.
As the night comes around, you don’t have to compromise comfort for style. Ashley Kim dressed our model in a plunging back LBD. Show off your tan by gently exfoliating your body with my favorite body scrub 100% Pure Body Scrub. I love it for its smell, chemical free formula and price.
Break out a bold pop of color with your LBD. I paired a sultry smokey eye in Dove Grey by using the NARS Delphes Trio Palette and a black eyeliner. Complement the look with a pop of red with a daring like the one used on Jade. I recommend Rouge Dior in N°999.
Enjoy and take a colorful risk!
