Personal Style | To the tropics

While we crave for the salty air and sunny skies all year round, when the summer actually descends on us, it can be quite a daunting season to deal with. From the sticky heat that seems to burn right to your core to every layer of clothing that seems too heavy to bare, it feels like all you really need is to take a break from it all and head to anywhere else but here. And hey, even if you don't get the chance to pack a bag and leave, dressing for the tropics won't hurt anyone.

Trying the tropical trend with refreshing prints and a smattering of lace can be so cooling in the eternal heat of the city. I've  chopped off a few inches of my hair and right now, it is the shortest it has been since I finished school. The whole ensemble of the prints, shorter length and pop of colour on my lips coming together is perfect to dress the part for a summer getaway.


L'Oreal recently launched their L'Or Lumière collection for the Cannes Film Festival which consisted of a fantastic new line of Moist Matte lipsticks and Gelmatic Pen super liners both of which I've used in this look and for which I've used all L'Oreal products to create.

True to its name, the Moist Matte lipsticks are my favorite type of matte finish and has the right amount of moisture to avoid dryness all day. 'Orange Power' is a true and pleasant orange which gives you a wonderful pop of colour on your lips, all while looking spring perfect just like Sonam's Spring Radiance look does. While it does appear streaky on application, it's a fantastic shade to try this season. The Gelmatic Pen super liners are my favorite product from the range. They are high on shimmer and have an incredible staying power to last through the day and night. The silver shade can be experimented with in so many ways to give your eyes an all new look!
