Spring is in, Summer is around the corner. A new season is the perfect excuse to revamp the makeup drawer and start anew. We think that wearing eyelash extensions give us enough humpf and we don’t need mascara. But we still can play with eye shadows, or make a statement with lipstick. Taking inspiration from the fashion runways, here are the must-try Spring Summer makeup trends.
Soft and Feminine Spring Summer Makeup Trends
Pretty in Pink
Pink hues never really go out of style, and there is no shortage of options, from barely there to slightly bolder. If you want to go very pink, keep the same shade for eyes, cheeks and lips so you don’t look like a doll. Also be careful to work with varying tones of vibrancy, you wouldn’t apply the same bold strokes to your eyes as your lips – play with intensities.
Possibly the hardest style to achieve is to look like you are wearing no makeup at all, or barely. Gently define the jawline with a blush as close to your natural complexion as possible, use flesh-colored lip gloss and spend some time grooming the eyebrows. If you feel the need to vamp up, a simple touch of eyeliner will be enough. Your voluminous lashes may be enough to do all the talking.
Bold and Beautiful Spring and Summer Makeup Trends
Something New, Something Blue
When soft doesn’t cut it, a deep blue across half the eyelid will. Balance with a sheer plumping lip gloss, and you can go directly from the office to a party.
We often don’t dare try on colors we think won’t work with our skin tone or eye color. If fashion is any indicator, style taboos are a thing of the past. In with the new, blue eyes and green eyeshadow is nothing to be afraid of. Play with color combos and style faux-pas – work your own personal magic.
Spring is like a lollipop, summer like a cup of strawberry sorbet. To show how happy we are, why not forget the eye makeup and just focus on the lips? Fushia, plum, deep red, you pick your flavor.
Whichever your style, enjoy the summer and stay cool!
