What you Need for Summer

Those Jersey Shore hooligans have their gym, tan, laundry. Now here’s your go-to formula: shades, lips, legs

Step 1: Shades. Step 2: Lipstick
Classic and Subtle
Two timeless items you can wear with anything: aviators, like these Candie’s sunglasses ($24, kohls.com), and pale lipstick like Burberry Beauty Lip Cover in Delicate Rose ($30, nordstrom.com). The pair will make you look put-together but effortless—not unlike, say, Gisele.

Quirky and Cool
Need to break out of a summer style rut? Go for a futuristic eyewear and lipstick mash-up, like Katy Perry’s. Good options: 3.1 Phillip Lim sunglasses ($225, 3.1 Phillip Lim, NYC, 212-334-1160) and Guerlain Rouge Automatique in No. 103 ($35, saks.com). Put them on and don’t ever look back!

Happy and Colorful
January Jones’ cheerful, fun-color sunglasses create an instantly summery look. Wear Crayola-color shades, like these XOXO sunglasses ($28, fantas-eyes.com), with a barely there lipstick or make a statement with coral. Our pick: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren ($8, at drugstores).

Step 1: Shades. Step 2: Lipstick
Dramatic and Sexy
The more oversize your shades are, the more attention you’ll attract—even if celebs like Cameron Diaz swear they hide in them. Slip on a pair like these Rampage sunglasses ($24, endless.com). And for look-at-me pink lips, try CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Delight ($7, at drugstores).

Step 1: Shades. Step 2: Lipstick
Retro and Feminine
Modern cat-eye frames like Camilla Belle’s aren’t as exaggerated as 1950s versions, but they’re just as girly, especially with a demure lip color. Try Illesteva sunglasses ($250, illesteva.com) and YSL Volupté Sheer Candy Lipstick in No. 3 ($30, yslbeautyus.com) for a purr-fect duo.

Edgy and Daring
Even if you’re not brave enough to copy Amber Rose’s skintight outfits, you can pull off her un-shy look from the neck up. Rock square frames, like these Fantas-Eyes sunglasses ($20, fantas-eyes.com), with bubble gum pink lips—then pucker up! Try Dior Addict Lipstick in Singulière ($28, dior.com).

Step 3: Flauntable Legs
It’s all about getting a little glow. Here’s how:

Go Slowly. If you’re a self-tanner virgin, try a self-tanning daily body lotion marked gradual—it’s the most subtle type, says St. Tropez bronzing pro Fiona Locke.

Prep Your Skin. If you are using a full-strength sunless tanner, exfoliate and moisturize first. “Use a washcloth in the shower. Poufsand loofahs scrub unevenly, causing streaks,” says Victoria’s Secret makeup and bronzing expert Colleen Runne.

Don’t Shower… for six to eight hours after you apply. “The color needs time to develop,” says Locke.

Or Try a Body Bronzer. One of these will give you instant temporary results—no commitment, no fuss.
