How To Wear Summer Makeup Trends 2016
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Makeup
No matter how much we fight it, the winter season is overloaded with dark, deep tones. Our warm overcoats are in neutral shades, our leather boots are mostly black and to match, we’re constantly sporting heavy-toned makeup looks. When we finally arrive at the cusp of summer and start enjoying the previously-elusive sun, our mood instantly brightens up. With our summery white cotton dresses, light skirts and pop shades of brightly coloured tops, one of the latest beauty trends is sporting makeup to match! Here’s a list of lust-worthy products and latest beauty trend we’re eyeing these days.
This summer season make a resolution to be unafraid to try new colours. Stop sticking to the monotonous neutrals or soft pinks and go all out with Gueralin’s Rouge Automatique Lipstick 142 Fleur De Feu £26.50. A bold bright red is not the only way to colour up your style, 2016 is the year that tangerine is taking over. This particular shade will pop against your complexion plus its remarkable long-lasting hold makes it the perfect companion for a long day at work. If you’d rather have a similar shade in the form of a lip gloss then a product we love is Lancome’s Juicy Tubes Cerise £18.50. It glosses up your lips and yet feels comfortable without leaving you with a sticky or gooey sensation.
One trend that is making its grand comeback from the 90s is the bright coloured eyeliner. To dress up your eyes and ensure that they stand out, pick up Ga-de’s Everlasting Eyeliner 302 Intense Green £10.00. This gorgeous shade reminds us of the Greek islands, turquoise blue waters and endless summer nights. In case you’d rather stick to a conservative shade of blue then Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay In Place Eye Pencil #09 Cobalt Electric £18.00 might be the eyeliner you’re searching for. This dual-ended liner pencil, with a smudger on one side and colour on other, is a winner for its sheer creamy formula that effortlessly glides on.
A quick stroll down the beauty aisle and you’ll notice that it is currently crowded with shades of browns. It’s quite a feat to dig up and find beautiful tropical hues these days. However, NARS is one big beauty brand that is currently offering several bright hues. NARS Duo Eyeshadow £26.50 features a rich pigment and micronised powder that blends seamlessly. If you’re planning a night out in town with the girls, we recommend pairing this with a light pink lipstick and a wavy mane.
Summer is all about gorgeously tanned skin, light cotton dresses and easy-going makeup looks. One of the latest beauty trends requires you to loosen up your inhibitions to try something different and radiant. Up your summer makeup game with these products and get ready to raise some eyebrows and turn some heads.
