summer beauty trends

i love summertime makeup. pops of color, bronzed skin, lighter coverage - what's not to love! here are some of my trend predictions for this summer.

trend #1: healthy sun kissed skin

sun kissed glowing skin is most natural in the summer. one step bronze allows you to “tint” your complexion using a sheer formula that was created for all skin tones and types without being exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. this summer try skipping foundation. one step bronze is beautiful on bare skin and makes it look healthy and youthful. for an effortless glow, apply one step bronze as complexion base and then apply foundation only where you need it. use one step bronze on body to create the “glow” and smooth airbrushed skin seen on the red carpet.

trend #2: bold eyes

summer makeup trends are focused on bright eye shadow. the hottest summer colors are teal, purple, bronze, and pewter. the perfect way to recreate this look, without overpowering your makeup, is to use bright color as a liner. i love to mix a bright bold waterproof eye liner with a bit of sparkle to the lash line. stila’s new sparkle waterproof liquid eye liner combines the best of both worlds in one easy-to-use liner. the perfect way to wear color eye liner is to create a bold line on the top and bottom lashes that extend out, creating a “v” shape. this makes eyes stand out and pop. pair this bright eye with a bronze cheek and sheer lip.

trend #3: pastel glossy lips
use: lip glaze in honeysuckle

lip gloss is a makeup bag must have for every woman. summer is all about pale gloss with a bit more coverage. soft roses, caramel tones, and pale peaches are the hottest shades. you can wear more makeup on your eyes with a soft lip gloss like stila’s lip glaze in honeysuckle. summer makeup should be effortless and lightweight like your summer time attitude!
