Just because Mother Nature continues to taunt us with glimpses of sunny days, it doesn’t mean that you can’t look like it’s the middle of A laid-back surfer girl style is the perfect way to banish the winter time blues.
Looking like a beach bum goddess is easy, but a crucial step is protection from the sun’s damaging rays. Nobody looks good with sunburn! Bobbi Brown's Protective Face Lotion SPF 15 is a moisturizer that will safeguard skin and leave skin gorgeously dewy. The lightweight, oil free formula contains Vitamin E to help fight against future damage and chamomile to calm, cool, and soothe (important for when warmer weather is actually here). After moisturizing, it is important to remember that your lips are just as, if not more, prone to sun damage. Lip Saver SPF 15 by Aveda is a convenient makeup product that can easily fit in any beach bag, will leave your lips soft and supple, and won’t be sticky like a lip gloss (a big no-no at the beach).

Once skin care is taken care of, fake a beach bum tan with Dolce & Gabbana's The Bronzer Glow Bronzing Powder in either #15 Cashmere or #20 Desert. Apply to the contours of your face and follow up with Smashbox's Soft Lights Smashing Highlight directly above the bronzer for the most natural look. Blend everything in well to avoid looking too “made up.”

The finishing touch to really accomplish surfer girl style is loose and messy waves. Redken's Fresh Curls Boost Spray Gel is a hairstyling aid that fights frizz and enhances and defines curls. Work a small amount into damp hair, scrunch, and let your hair air dry to look like you spent the day at the beach.
