The beauty industry is such a fast paced place that one feels like it’s a bit of a struggle to stay on top of the constant updates. The plethora of products, makeup tips, and evolving trends means that we have to stay constantly on the lookout for all that’s new and trending. Summer is usually all about the tan and the bright colors so let’s delve a little deeper into the makeup pool and uncover what new trends are emerging nowadays and what’s here to stay!!
1 || Fake Freckles
Some claim that this is the Meghan Markle effect, nonetheless, freckles are now hugely embraced and celebrated. Those blessed with real freckles are downplaying the coverage to let their freckles shine through. While those with no freckles are dotting them on with a brown pencil. Do a few across the bridge of your nose, and if you’re feeling more courageous spread them out across your cheeks.
2 || Major Bronzer
The trends are shifting away from contouring and using bronzer to define the look of chiselled cheekbones. Instead bronzer was used all over the runways to create that heavily sun-kissed look reminiscent of the 70’s. Just sweep bronzer alongside your cheeks in place of contouring, blush and highlighter!
3 || Glitter Eyes
Yes summer parties are the perfect time to experiment with glittery eye makeup. All the better if it’s graphic. Take your inspiration from the recent runway shows such as Valentino’s and Halpern’s, or for a more wearable twist, just sweep on a coloured wing liner and add the glitter or sheen.
4 || Bold Lips
Statement, bold lips never completely leave the scene. Pair your raspberry red lipstick with fresh skin and black mascara. Or you can opt for a creamy burgundy, a true red or any deep bright that takes your fancy. Just bare the rest of the face down.
5 || Bright Eyes
Colourful eyeshadow is still enjoying its long moment though now it’s expanding to include neon colors. Hot pinks, neon greens and blues were seen everywhere but don’t tamper down your creativity; if you want to use blush or lipstick on your eyelids please do. However, whatever you do, just make sure you stick to one shade.
6 || Major Brows
Another trend that’s having a long moment, or is here to stay is the bushy brow, or virgin brows as they’re being called now! We don’t mean you should completely throw away your tweezers, but just use them where and if necessary. Brush your brows up for maximum impact.
7 || Loads of Blush
A makeup trend that is just so easy to adopt is the flush of blush look that gives you an outdoorsy feel. You might like to keep it monotone and pair it with soft pink lips and same for eyelids!
