Coolest Makeup Trends Heating up this Summer

Makeup is not a mask. Makeup is art, passion, and expression of your independent spirit! This summer, why not express your passion for gorgeous looking makeup, by trying out a hot new look? Get ready to make an explosive statement with some of the coolest looks heating up this summer season.

Nice & Natural – Sticking with a simple and more natural look is the perfect trend and will give your skin a much-needed rest from heavy makeup. You can keep it light and natural, but still achieve a sun kissed glow, by adding a bit of bronzer to your cheek bones.

Sunny Daze – Show off your beach-bunny side with popping pink, blue, and orange eye shadow and liner. Mix and match! Keep if fun and find the perfect shade (or shades) to ring in this season with a brightly colored bang!

Boldly Go – Going out on the town this summer? Embolden any look with a bold lip color. Out of the ordinary colors like bright glossy purple become extraordinary when you blend them with a lavender tone. Give yourself sunset worthy kissable lips by blending bright pink with a softer, peachy orange.

Cat Eyes– If you’re a fan of the sassy cat eye look, but can’t seem to get your lines just right, this look is perfect for you. A reinvented cat eye involves zero liquid-liner mess, and lots of bronze eyeshadow. Start with a lighter shade and sweep it on your lids up to the crease. Next, apply a darker shade on top of it, stopping at just above the crease. Using an angled brush, apply a dark brown or black shadow on the outer corner of your eye, in a sideways “v” shape. Continue to fill in the “v” with the dark shadow, making sure to blend. Extended the top of the “v” slightly, going towards the center of your eye. Blend away any sharp lines and you’ve achieved the perfect cat eye.

Brows Before Bros- Eyebrow shaping is a definite must this season. There are a few different ways you can achieve the perfect brow. Most salons can do shaping and tinting for you, but you can freehand it yourself by outlining the shape and thickness you want with an eyebrow pencil. Use a shadow or filler that’s a shade darker than your natural color to shade inside your outline. Last, use concealer to blend around the brow to make them more defined.

Starry Night – Lest we forget those beautiful summer nights. Bonfires on the beach and date nights under the stars – are the perfect time to pull out a trendy new look. Tiny, colorful star-shaped appliques are the perfect nod to the summer starlit sky. Apply to the upper outside corner of your eyebrow, or the corner of your mouth. Or if you want more shimmer in your summer, apply one or many with a trail of glitter under your eye or high on your cheekbone.

Have fun with your style this summer and don’t be afraid to try all the fun, trendy styles out there! And if you want to take your love of creating cool new looks to the next level, maybe you should consider a career in the beauty industry!
