Get the Look of Chromat’s Spring 2016 Lookbook with These 5 Products and Rock Poolside Beauty

Wet, wild and definitely joyous, summer brings out bold brights and beach bods. Chromat’s Spring 2016 collection exemplifies this wonderfully: dewy, waterproof and slick, it’s a sun-soaked romp. A lush cat-eye, rich lips and overall sunkissed makeup looks excellent with artfully cutout suits and futuristic monokinis. You’ll want a cold drink for this one, since you’ll be smokin’ hot poolside all summer long.

  1. “artfully cutout suits and futuristic monokinis”

    I completely agree how arty those bathing suits are…! Those “line-works” (I don’t know how else to describe it) are really cool. Hell, I bet they make tan lines way cooler.

    Also can I just say, that cologne set looks beautiful? Nice complimentary colors going on.
