Makeup geeks around the world have a lot to be happy about this season as we’ve seen major runways and fashion spreads continue to inspire us with fun summer makeup ideas we can replicate in our own runways, check out this list!
1. Glitter Highlights
From fashion shows to music festivals, we have seen everyone rock glitter highlights this season. A light dusting of glitter powder on the lower lashes gives your eyes and on your cheekbones give your look the attention it deserves. It works well on anyone too.
2. Glossy Lids
Commonly seen on editorial spreads from years passed, the glossy eyelid look is definitely going mainstream. Makeup artists usually dab a small amount of Vaseline on the lids to create the look, but as this runs and smudges out, it’s quite impractical for everyday wear. It’s a good thing that MAC has created the Studio Eye Gloss so you can recreate this look anytime.
Strobing is a decades-old practice creating a beautifully-highlighted face. Create this look by sweeping a highlighting cream on the high points of the face, make sure it’s blended out and subtle enough to look like healthy skin.
4. Dewy and Bronzed Skin
If you haven’t noticed yet, this season is the season of beautiful skin. Seen in runways and created by professional makeup artists, dewy skin is finally in. The easiest way to get a dewy skin look is to apply a liquid illuminator before foundation. Afterward, apply a very light bit of highlighting powder if you deem it necessary.
5. Shimmery Eyes
Enchanting shimmery eyes are in this season too. Layer complimentary or monochromatic shimmery shadows on your upper and lower lids to make your eyes pop. Perfect for a sweet summer party.
6. Glossy Pout
This classic look is perfect for the summer, a high gloss lip lends a fresh perspective to your look and also compliments a golden tan beautifully. Don’t forget to stay hydrated for a moisturized and supple looking pout.
7. Faux Freckles
Fake or not, freckles are the hottest summer makeup look to hit us this season. No need to put on loads of foundation and concealer. Show off your skin along with mascara-defined eyes, lip gloss and a flush of blush on your cheeks.
8. Full Brows and Sultry Makeup
None of that shaved brows this season just beautiful, naturally full and hairy brows that frame our faces. Achieve this look by combing your eyebrows up and filling them in with eyebrow powder. Quick and easy.
9. Apple Red Lips
The classic red lip is here to stay and this is one of the reasons why I love this year’s summer makeup trend. Barefaced or pair it with a rose gold to copper-toned shadow and you’ll never have to worry about looking classy in this hot weather.
