Being a lifestylist, there is more to it than just styling with clothing and accessories. Makeup is a huge aspect to consider when making your look complete and polished. Makeup is just as important as carrying the latest bag and strutting in heels. Here are four makeup trends to try this summer.
1. Pretty in Pink
This spring, ladies everywhere will be looking pretty in pink whether it's pale or an electric pink. A soft pink blush or a swipe of hot pink eyeliner makes the trend solid. And if you're looking to take the trend to the next level, opt for a shade of neon pink lipstick or gloss, like the one you see on Fashion Police co-host Kelly Osbourne and Rihanna. Just make sure to try it out at home first. I would advise experimenting with colors at home before you leave the house just to ensure you're comfortable.
2. Bronze Goddess
You might not be a bronze and tan princess until summer is in full swing, but that doesn’t matter. You can look bronze by rocking the glow, even dewy skin that's sure to be popular with women of all skin tones this season. Get the look by applying a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream all over then adding a bit of highlighter to cheeks. My favorite one is from Mac that comes in a small glass jar with a black top. It should be applied to brow bones and down the nose. Top it all off with a bit of bronzer for a look that the stars rock on the red carpet.
3. Distinguished Brows
For those ladies who have their eyebrow waxers on speed dial, this trend might seem a little alarming. But dark and defined eyebrows — like those on actress Lily Collins can really make a stunning statement. There is no need to thin the brows or tint them. Dark is back! To pull off the look use a matching brow pencil to lightly fill in gaps and enhance your natural shape by following the man made lines.
4. Lock Your Lips
Kiss that glossy smile goodbye! The lip look to love is matte lipstick in any shade, especially crispy beige or pinks. To ace the look, prep lips before applying color by exfoliating and moisturizing for a smooth surface. I love to use anything by the cosmetic company Fresh.
