Dreaming of the warm sand, salty breezes, and soothing sounds of the warm summer waves on the regular? It is finally time to enjoy that Summer heat and the glow that comes along with it. As the seasons change, makeup trends evolve alongside them. We are here to help decipher the world of ever-changing makeup looks that are taking over your socials. Summer makeup typically features minimalist, no-makeup makeup looks, dewy skin, and freckles. However, there are a few out-of-the-box trends we are loving. Here are a few Summer makeup trends we predict to be circling your social feeds this Summer and IRL.
Freckles are timeless. The secret to freckles, minus any sun damage, are Pseudo Labs PHreckles. With three different shades, it’s easy to get the perfect faux freckles that are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. You can be freckled and speckled to your heart’s desire, without the stress of them washing off. Freckles are the perfect way to add a sun-kissed touch to your makeup look in seconds.
Graphic liners are such a fun way to add some extra color to your look, easy. NYX offers colorful liquid liner that is perfect for abstract looks, or a fun sweep of color for the Summer. You can also mix a mixing medium into your favorite loose-pigment eyeshadow to turn it into a liner. Just mix and apply with a thin precision brush to turn your favorite colored eyeshadow into a bold graphic liner.
Bold lashes that lengthen and accentuate the outer corners of your eyes are in. Having lashes concentrated at the outer corners elongates and lifts the appearance of the eye. This creates a cat-eye effect that you can use with a flared half lash on the outer corners.
SPF Over Everything
Summer means harsh UV rays. It is important to protect your skin from the sun daily, however it is essential during the summer. Make sure to use an SPF when applying any makeup. You can use an SPF setting spray or powder to continually reapply throughout the day, even if you have makeup on. Switching out your traditional highlight to one with an SPF will protect your skin while getting that glow.
Multi-uses of Blush
Make it easy by using one product in different ways. Try using your favorite cream blush to highlight the top of your cheekbones, lips, and dab onto the eyelids for some added color. This is a great way to add some warmth to your look, with one product you can toss into your beach bag.
