If the sun is stifling your beauty creativity, fret no more, as we have the prettiest summer-friendly looks to help get your gorgeous on. From pretty flushed cheeks to the new summer glow, here are 9 celebrity beauty looks to inspire you this season.
Selena Gomez's Baby Pink Pout
The metallic baby pink color on Selena Gomez's lips is right on trend with summer's electric pastels. For daytime, pair it with a soft coppery lid and barely there makeup, transitioning into a smokier lid and bronzier complexion for night.

Lucy Hale's Summer Friendly Waves
Forget stick straight hair. For summer, seek more natural-looking hair options like the soft waves on Lucy Hale. Just as pretty but less rigid, this summer-friendly hairstyle looks great even when the humidity hits a high note.

Karlie Kloss' Summer Nude Glow
For summer, embrace the new soft glow like Karlie Kloss. Think luminous, healthy-looking skin that's less bronzy and more radiant. Get this golden nude by applying a warmish refined powder all over your face, which is lighter than the pressed version, in lieu of your typical matte bronzer.

Jennifer Lawrence's Glossy Nude Lips
Rather than the ubiquitous red, apply a nude tint on your lips for an evening out. Look for a glossy one that enhances the shape of your lips, yet is still sheer enough to show your natural lip color like the one Jennifer Lawrence is sporting.
Naomie Harris' Low Ponytail
Summer is not the time to fuss over your hair. Instead, embrace basic styles like Naomi Harris' low ponytail, which looks just as, or even more so, sophisticated than your typical glam updo. When doing a low pony, part your hair to one side for extra polish, and make sure to use a grooming cream to fight off any potential fly-aways.
Rachel Bilson's Soft Bronze Glow
If you're looking to enhance your pretty summer (faux) tan, use a bronzer that is only 2 shades darker than your normal skin color, a technique that keeps you from looking fake-baked or worse, orange. Complement your glow a la Rachel Bilson by opting for lined eyes, glossy lips and soft-looking waves.

Emma Roberts' Groomed Brows
Groomed brows like the ones Emma Roberts is sporting will instantly make you look more polished and sophisticated. If your arches are naturally thick like Emma's, keep them from looking unruly or messy by applying a clear gel after you have brushed them.
Jessica Szohr's A-list Do
If you have a fancy evening soiree, take note from Jessica Szohr's A-list coiffed locks. Perfect for bobs or mid-length hair, this retro-style looks super elegant and pulled together, yet has a coquettish vibe. Give these glamorous curls staying power by applying flexible-hold hairspray all over your 'do before heading out.
Julianne Hough's Apricot Flush
This summer, take a break from rosy pinks and bright corals and embrace a softer shade, like the one Julianne Hough is wearing. Apricot colored blushes complement just about every skin tone and look appropriate in any setting, particularly the more casual ones. To transition this gorgeous flush into evening, look to Julianne's smoky lids and rosy lipstick for inspiration.
