trend #1: gorgeous glow & healthy sun kissed skin 

we all want glamour to look easy and come natural during the summer months. this is a sultry bronze trend that looks glamourous on every skin tone and skin type.

sun kissed glowing skin is most natural in the summer. women are taking such great care of their skin with staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen daily. one step bronze allows you to “tint” your complexion using a sheer formula that was created for all skin tones and types. i love to see a woman’s natural skintone, freckles, or flushed cheeks peeking through her foundation, it looks youthful and fresh to me. this summer try skipping foundation and use one step bronze for healthy and youthful looking skin.

one step bronze is beautiful on bare skin 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 sunkissed smooth airbrushed skin seen on the red carpet.

trend #2: bronze beauty & bold eyes 

i love to mix a bright bold waterproof eye liner with a bit of sparkle to the lash line. the hottest summer colors are teal, purple, bronze, and pewter. create a “V” shape to enhance your eyes.  try stila' new waterproof sparkle liquid eye liners.

i love to create a bold line on the top and bottom lashes that extends out and makes eyes stand out. try using a bright bold shade with a bronze cheek and sheer lip. focus the bright shade on one feature and let everything else remain soft and sheer.

spring makeup focused on bright eye shadow, using bright color as liner is an effortless approach to this trend.

trend #3: lush lashes

stila forever your curl mascara creates full, fluttery, curled lashes. i have many clients that use lash enhancing products and they work well, but the lash becomes long and straight. this is the perfect formula for stubborn lashes that don’t hold a curl. i love the look of fullness and a smooth curled lash for every season. 

lashes are always on trend and it’s even better when you can skip a step and leave your lash curler behind. i worked backstage at several shows and loved the seventies hippie chic influence across the board, especially with lashes.  

trend #4: neon color and pastel glossy lips

colorful lips is a hot summer trend because it is easy to pop on bright pink on lips and cheeks and keep the rest of your makeup bare. neon lip liners make it easy to change your lip color fast without weighing down your makeup bag. try stila long wear lip liner in “obsessed” bright neon pink shade. apply to lips as you would a lipstick.

lip gloss is a makeup bag must have for many women. summer is 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 lip glaze in honeysuckle.

summer makeup should be effortless and lightweight like your summer time attitude!

don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily!
