Spring/Summer makeup is the prettiest- who doesn’t love an excuse to pack on the highlighter and a bright lipstick?
Here are a few of the latest makeup trends that will make you want to pack away the last of your winter outfits (even if the weather isn’t playing ball)
- Glowing skin
Products like MAC Face and Body or a Garnier BB Cream are perfect for creating a lightweight base for the warmer months that are buildable in coverage. For extra ‘glow points’ add a dusting of highlighter on the top of the cheekbones and bridge of the nose for a subtle take on the strobing trend that is still going strong.
- Lived in liner
With this trend there’s a throwback to the nineties- black or brown liner on the lower lashline blended a small amount to appear ‘lived-in’ frames the eyes and pairs beautifully with glowing base makeup.
After applying the liner softly blending with your finger is the easiest way to create not too much of a grungy look keeping it appropriate for spring/summer. For this look, try a liner that is not too hard like Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Waterproof kohl liner in Bronze.
- Ocean inspired shadows
Bright shadows have been popping up all over the spring/summer shows, a sweep of blue or green across the eyelid is an easy way to create definition and feel like a mermaid in the process.
Give any outer corner definition a miss to keep the look light. Nars (limited edition) dual intensity shadows in ‘Tarvos’ and ‘Cressida’ are perfect for creating the look, a more affordable alternative is the Revlon Colourstay 16-hour eyeshadow quad in the shade ‘Inspired’.
