Supermodel Chanel Iman just gave us the ultimate minimal beauty inspiration, proving glowing skin and twin plaits are the perfect style for summer.

When Chanel Iman makes an appearance, all eyes are on her by default. This week, the supermodel attended the opening party and celebration of Love: From Cave to Keyboard in quintessential Iman style sporting a dewy skin and a blowout coupled with the perfect pair of summer braids. 

To channel her summer cool, start your beauty routine with clean moisturized skin. If you're not into foundation, try mixing your favorite concealer with your moisturizer and blend it into your skin using a brush. Apply a rosy blush to the apples of your cheeks and line your eyes with an espresso-hues kajal. To complete the look, fill in your brows using a powder, opt for lash extensions for length and dust your lower waterline with a gold shimmer shadow.

Braid the hair all the way down and loosen it for a more lived-in texture. Leave the rest of tresses long and flowy. For finishing touches, clean up your edge, add a little sheen to your tresses and head out the door!
