makeup tips


Maybe it’s the gloriously warm sun or the blissfully long summer days, but there’s definitely something about summer that brings out our desire to shine more than any other season! Ready or not, summer is here, and as you put away your parkas and pull out your flip-flops, you’re probably considering what you want your summer style to be.  Fortunately, the options are as plentiful as sand on the beach! So whether you’re the daytime beach goer, summer night on the town type, or both – this summer season has hot trends that are as natural or nurtured as you want them to be!

Blaze a beautiful trailwith bronzer! The toasty, bronzed look of sun-kissed, glowing skin is light on the face but packs a pretty and powerful punch. Don’t forgo the sunscreen though, cause you can get the sun-kissed look minus the damaging UV rays with bronzer! This easy summer look is the multi-tasker of make-up. It goes with anything, anywhere. Just sweep bronzer over your cheeks and eyes and get ready to be noticed!

Gorgeously gothic lips – Are you going for fierce and dramatic?  Try black lipstick and dark eyeliner and showcase your sultry side. Apply a lighter shade towards the center of your lips to really accentuate that boldly, gothic feel.

Candy coated color – If dark and sultry isn’t your thing, try making your lips make a statement with bright, candy colored lips! Don’t be intimidated by bright neon pink or bold cherry red! This summer, let your lips take center stage! But whether you are going gothic or bright on the lips, be sure to keep your lips hydrated and reapply color as needed.

The “Eyes” have it – Let your eyes be the main attraction without worrying about perfectly painted on eyeliner. The cool girl eye is an un-fussy, just rolled out of bed look with slightly smudged liner for a smoky stare. To achieve this style, don’t apply eyeliner to your eyelid, try riding over your lash lines and leaving it for an effortless looking, lightly smudged look.

The most important thing to keep in mind this summer is stay fearless! Don’t hesitate to try a new look you haven’t tried before. Make summer 2017 the year of you! If you’re looking for an even more adventurous summer, consider taking on the beauty industry as a whole. Careers in cosmetology are in high demand and you can master your own look and be the one people come running to help them master theirs! Join the fellow artists who are ready to help you prosper in the exciting world of beauty. Contact your local state licensing board to find a list of cosmetology schools near you. After all, are you waiting on success to arrive, or are you going out to find where it’s hiding?
