While many of the beauty looks featured on the Florida runways are meant just for show, there's still plenty of hair, makeup, and nail polish inspiration to be had. See 20 different ways you can make your poolside (or beachside) lounging all the more stylish.
Red lip color gives any swimsuit ensemble a perfect finish. To create the modern pinup look at Beach Bunny, Make Up For Ever artist James Vincent used the brand's Rouge Artist Intense #42 and #46.

For a bronzed glow as seen at Cia.Maritima, create dimension by using a deeper, shimmery bronze shadow on the outer half of the eyes. Add a glistening light gold shade on the inner halves to bring it all together.

Thanks to its light-reflecting and go-with-anything qualities, a metallic polish provides the perfect complement to your bikini collection. A barely there silver, like this one seen at Lisa Blue, has plenty of impact, but without the blinding side effects. Try

For "tanned" skin without the burn, use a palette of pink, copper, and bronze tones. At the
