Summer tends to see your calendar filled to the brim with events, whether that be festivals, barbecues, or dinner parties. Why not take this opportunity to try out some new makeup looks and start the new year off on a more experimental foot? From sunkissed eyelids to no makeup makeup, here are five makeup trends that we’d like to see you try this summer.
Not to be confused with sunburnt eyelids, sunkissed eyelids are a great way of channelling a fun, tropical vibe. Apply a soft citrus shade such as orange or yellow across your entire lid to make your eyes pop. With your eyes doing all the talking, you can keep the rest of your summer makeup minimal and pull your hair back into a sleek ponytail.
Red lips and a pop blush
You’re probably not surprised to see red lips feature on yet another trend list, but what can we say? It’s one of the most timeless and universally flattering makeup looks to exist. While people tend to keep the rest of their beauty look minimal when donning a red lip, this summer it’s all about pairing your bold ruby lips with a pop of blush.
Galaxy-inspired glitter eyes and lip gloss
Incorporating galaxy-inspired eyeshadow and lip gloss is fun and easy while having the power to transform your entire look. Take your pick from the wide range of glitter palettes that are currently available and swipe one shade over your entire lid; pair this with a holographic lip and highlighter to take your galaxy-inspired makeup look to the next level. If you want a more subtle summer makeup look, a holographic lip can still make a big impact when paired with defined brows and mascara.
Don’t limit the galaxy-inspired look to just your eyes and lips; we love using Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ Illuminator with Diamond Powder to achieve a multi-dimensional glow reminiscent of genuine diamonds.
No makeup makeup
Another classic look, no makeup makeup is a winner thanks to the minimal effort required for maximum impact. All you need is a handful of beauty products to achieve that subtle dewy glow. We recommend applying a CC cream to even your complexion, a touch of bronzer for a subtle sunkissed vibe, some tinted lip balm for a pop of colour, and brow gel, because we all know what a difference good eyebrows can make.
We personally love Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ CC Perfecting Primer to even your skin tone and blur any imperfections. Long-lasting and silky, it can be worn underneath make-up or by itself. Ask our Fremantle beauty therapists for more information about the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics range.
