As the weekend creeps closer, we love to gather beauty inspiration to interpret in our downtime. Here are 5 stunning looks that are perfect for your weekend agenda, whether your releasing your inner-hippie on the dusty campgrounds of Coachella or swirling a few glasses of pinot with your closest gals.
Bohemian Braided Up-Do
Coachella bound this weekend? We know that the desert heat and dusty grounds can sometimes lead to less than perfect locks. So, to combat strand stress, we suggest throwing your hair into a bohemian braid.
To get the look above, spritz your hair with texturizing spray, like Matrix Biolage Full-Lift Spray-In Volumizer, before creating two braids. After wrapping your braids into a crown, secure with bobby pins and pull some pieces loose for a softer look. This style is also great for unwashed hair.
Bold Matte Lips
It’s no secret that we love spring’s matte lip trend. Check out our Matte Lip Tutorial, and then try pairing your colorful pout with dramatic brows, as pictured above. This look would be great for a night out, since the matte finish means you can sip without smudging.
Sometimes all you need is a little bronzer. We love the look above, shown in Roberto Cavalli’s Spring Summer 2013 Collection, for a low-maintenance weekend look. To recreate this sun-kissed glow, try using Maybelline’s Fit Me bronzer or Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate on your eyes and lips. If you’re craving a little more glamour, add a dash of liquid liner to the mix.
