It's All About Tropical Shades and Mermaid Braids at Miami Swim Week

Jul 22 2014 - 8:09pm

If you've ever been to Miami, you know the city's vibe is totally infectious. Bright lights, loud music, and white sand are just a few of this beach town's lovable traits. This year at Miami Swim Week, makeup artists, hairstylists, and manicurists are incorporating the best of Miami into the runway looks. Bold neon hues lined eyes and lacquered lips, the beach-blown curls were so revved up they seemed caffeinated, and there were plenty of mermaid-inspired braids and glowing, bronzed skin. Scroll down to discover the best of the Summer beauty at this season's shows.
