Summertime means cruises, tropical islands, lemonade, beaches, and romance. The beauty trends of this season encompass all this and more. While makeup can be more natural for a fresh face on the beach, use bright colors for cruises or other celebrations. Whatever you choose from this beautiful selection, make it your own for a memorable summer.
Opt for a simple, fresh face when going to the beach, poolside, or hanging out with friends. This relaxed trend mirrors the feeling of a vacation. Why be overly primped when you can be ready to sunbathe after only a few minutes? After lathering on moisturizer, with spf, of course, just add concealer only where you need it to cover trouble areas. Another way is to add a few drops of makeup to your moisturizer and rub in a thin layer, covering your entire face. Add some lip gloss, brown mascara, and bronzer to your cheeks. If you want to make your makeup last, choose waterproof mascara and long lasting concealer.
Bright colors are popular this summer. They invoke visions of Hawaiian flowers and ethnic prints. These shades also remind one of the 80's, but instead of treating your face like a canvas for art, use them as highlighters for your eyes or lips. Just make sure you choose one or the other; an overly technicolor face is distracting.
Be sure to use a primer or extra concealer on eyelids before adding bright eyeshadow. This will help the colors to stay vibrant throughout your hot day. Also, try bright lips in a stain. This is longer lasting then a lip gloss or lipstick. Swipe sheer lip gloss or basic chapstick over it so your lips will retain moisture.
