“Summer afternoon — summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” -Henry James
For a memorable European summer getaway, you’ll want to feel as good as you look and vice-versa. There are lots of tried and true ways to guarantee a sexy appearance, and Nabila K’s got you covered. Whether you’re looking to try full-on glamour with statement-making smoky eyes or natural sun-kissed beauty, Nabila K has all the inspiration via your favorite European glamour goddesses. With the right products, you can easily achieve romantic looks that will leave everyone breathless.
For all of the romantic looks listed below, ensure that your makeup is shiny, ethereal, and perfect with a bit of primer (tinted or clear) and setting spray. To get that radiant glow to immediately illuminate your look, try Nabila K’s Beauty Stix (“Glow Getter” will add instant glimmer and glitter).
And, let us not forget: when you feel like covering up (and should to protect yourself from the sun), a stylish straw hat and dark sunglasses (à la Brigitte Bardot) are always chic.
Look 1: Emulate Sophia Loren with a sexy and sun-kissed look, with full brows and lined lips. There’s nothing more seductive, summery, or European than high glamour accentuated with a shadow of underarm hair, full lips, and natural eyebrows. If you’re planning a European getaway this summer, draw inspiration from one of Italy’s most iconic beauties, Sophia Loren.
For full, sumptuous lips, try lining them with one of Nabila K’s long-lasting lip pencils. This will give your mouth definition that won’t rub off in the water, sun, or even while sipping a cocktail. For a subtle yet romantic look, try a dusty rose hue; Nabila K’s “Satin” lip liner pencil is perfect for a look that’s just enough.
- For full, perfectly manicured eyebrows that are natural yet done, try Nabila K’s “Brow Fixx” product in Blondie, Brunette, Chocolate, Dark Brunette, Fair Blonde, or Clear shades to match your unique hue. Of course, Sophia Loren would need the brunette option.
- No romantic look would be complete without a good mascara.
Look 2: To get your eyes as dark and exotic as Claudia Cardinale’s, you’ll need a reliable dark eyeshadow, eyeliner, and false eyelashes. Look as sexy and seductive as you feel this summer with a little help from another Italian beauty (and, of course, from Nabila K).
- For the perfect smoky eye, try Nabila K’s single well eyeshadow in “Blackest Black.” Now, it’s essential to remember that a little goes a long way with such a dark shadow, and with this (as opposed to eyeliner), you can create a gently smudged smoky look that is soft and not too garish. Because this eyeshadow is crease-proof and has impressive staying power, it’s exactly what you need to recreate Cardinale’s romantic look.
- To complete a romantic look that’s all about the eyes, you’ll need false eyelashes. Try a full strip of Nabila K’s “Feather” lashes or the individual “Ever After” option for a more precise, defined look that screams 1960s allure.
Look 3: For a gorgeous, dewy look that’s natural and glowing, take a cue from Catherine Deneuve.
- Make sure your skin is hydrated and smooth with a clean, organic moisturizer or serum (we recommend Nabila K’s Manuka Honey Whip with aloe vera and shea butter), some aloe surge facial mist, and, by all means, do not neglect your lips! Keep them supple and kissable with Nabila K’s silky smooth lip balm (try the collection of seven travel-size tubes) made from the finest, most ethically-sourced ingredients.
- For a little more pizazz, try one of Nabila K’s vibrant, romantic lip glosses (available in ten shades).
Look 4: For your most romantic European look this summer, take a cue from Virna Lisa and accentuate your beauty mark (or create one), apply a sexy cat eye, and play up your pout with a pink or coral lipstick.
- For your eyes, look no further than Nabila K’s Ultra Black waterproof liquid eyeliner. Because it’s smudge-proof, your mysterious dark eye makeup will stay put (and perfect) all day and night.
- Make everyone say “Ooh-La-La” when they see your shiny coral lips. For a romantic look that lasts, Nabila K’s lipstick is just what you need. For pink lips with high shine, smooth on the creamiest, most luxurious lipstick in the perfect shade of dusty rose. It’s no wonder Nabila K dubbed it “Bella.”
