Last week, we were showing you which hairstyles were going to get you seen over the summer months but this week we’re looking at the make-up trends that will have you turning heads. This year is all about keeping things simple with a statement eye or lip! No need to hide behind your oversized Gucci sunglasses like you have a hangover anymore!
Blue eye shadows are usually reserved for old ladies or eighties-themed fancy dress – but, they have made a comeback in the fashion world this year! If you have brown or grey eyes, try an electric blue shadow all over the lid to make them pop. Or, if you aren’t quite ready to brave the blue, keep it subtle by swapping out your usual black or brown eyeliner for a royal blue shade.
It’s a well known beauty tip that white eyeliner in the waterline will create the illusion of bigger eyes but the trend has been taken one step further this season. Line your top AND bottom lids with a white eyeliner for a fresh and clean look.
Pink and red lips are so last summer… this year is all about orange shades! Simple winged eyeliner paired with a sizzling satsuma shade is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. Watch out though, as warm orange shades can make your teeth appear yellow. If you’re worried about compromising your pearly whites, opt for a reddish-orange colour.
Luminous skin with metallic shine is on trend and will give your skin youthful radiance. With a small powder brush, buff a highlighting cream product over the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones and inner corners of the eyes.
Play with your brow shape, think about adding texture and depth. Use a brow gel to create a solid textured base, then brush through a dark eyeshadow to make strong statement brows.
Cool hair should never look too ‘done’. Back comb hair with your hands and twist random sections pinning it low. Spritz your hands with a medium hold spray and pull strands out to encourage fly always and a distressed finish. This year is all about keeping things simple with a statement eye or lip! No needs to hide behind your oversized Gucci sunglasses like you have a hangover anymore.
