The Byrdie Beauty Recap: What You Missed This Week

Oh, May. What are we going to do with you? With it hailing one week and glorious sunshine the next, we're, quite understandably, having a hard time deciding whether or not we need to be applying waterproof mascara or getting out the fake tan.

As if the tumultuous weather wasn't bad enough, we've also noticed how humid is has been of late, which has been wreaking havoc on our locks (cue: Monica Geller). Fear not though, as we've got some incredible beauty tips and tricks from the past week that will give you some serious hair inspiration.

Also, we give you the run down on how to do your makeup if you're going DIY on your wedding day, plus all the sandals you need in your life from Who What Wear. The weekend starts here.
