THE TOP 5 BEAUTY TRENDS FOR SUMMERFashion
03 October 2016
One of the easiest ways to transform your look is to start with your makeup. If you're a stickler for a red lip or a winged eye then these summer trends could be a great way to take the trend and put your spin on it.
ALL ABOUT THE BASE
From primers to all-in-one foundations it’s all about getting the base right.
Having your makeup slide off is never a good thing and Summer can be one of the worst culprits. Expect to see a big focus on primers and skin-prep products that don’t just keep your makeup on but keep your skin looking good too.
THE MATTE FINISH
For when you want to turn the shine down.
Bronzed dewy skin will always have it’s place especially in the warmer months but matte skin will forever remain a timeless classic and this Summer it is proving to be just as strong a contender with a bold lip or shadow.
Corals, oranges and peachy-pinky shades are the new go-to for lips.
For a fresh and youthful look go for a gloss finish during the day then at night crank it up a notch with an electric pink or if (if you dare) an orange lip in matte.
PATENT BERRY NAILS
Think of them as the best shades that winter left behind.
Deep merlot, aubergine and crimson nails are still very much ‘in’ for Summer, only this time they are high shine and glossy. Berry shades are perfectly paired with vibrant spring dresses or wear them as the perfect accent for a night-out look.
If you’ve never gone ‘blue’ now is the time to try.
Perhaps it’s those beach references or the simple fact that blue shadow is sensational with a peach lip. Whatever the case, if you’re bold enough to try it then cyan is the blue to try. If you’d rather dip your feet in – start with a simple but punchy blue eyeliner.
