The 3-Step Guide To Killer Summer Beauty

Photographed by Tom Corbett.
The length of our beauty routine is inversely proportionate to the temperature outside — the hotter it gets, the more products we ditch. Not counting sunscreen (because we're all wearing that year round, right?), we've managed to narrow our game plan down to just three key things: fabulous sunglasses, bold lipstick, and vibrant nail polish. And, it's even better when the hues are coordinated.
So, to come up with the best combos for colorful fun in the sun, we gathered a pile of wildly cool sunglasses and asked makeup artist Gregg Hubbard and manicurist Eri Handa to whip up product pairings that pull each look together. From matchy-matchy to complementary, these color palettes will make your summertime spirit sing.
Ahead, all the eye — and nail and lip — candy you need to jump into summer feeling inspired.
