The weather isn’t the only thing heating this season. Now that we can see full, unmasked human faces again, makeup is back in fashion – and hotter than ever.
Some words I will use to describe this year’s summer makeup trends are bold, experimental, and imaginative. It feels like the revenge travel trend applied to makeup. After 15 months of skipping vacations, people are booking bigger and better holidays than ever before. And after 15 months of wearing mascara, women are pushing the boundaries with makeup, stepping out of their comfort zones with color, and even defining new application styles.
You can appreciate that. It all goes with the dynamics of beauty. Or you can find it intimidating. I feel a little of both. Having an excuse (and a lot of inspiration) to change is exciting. But I’m almost 40, and I don’t see myself in neon green eyeshadow either.
Bright lips and eyes
If you’ve read my post about pedicure colours for summer, you may remember that orange and aqua are the nail polish shades of the season. Guess what? The same hues are trending as lip and eye colours. Now is the season if you have always wanted to try orange lips. The same goes for the lighter shades of green, blue, pink and yellow on your eyes.
Moreover, you can apply these crazy colours in any way you like. Use a single shade of pink on your upper and lower eyelids, create a rainbow effect with multiple colours, or apply a bright green to the inner corners of your eyes.
Pick up a low-cost eyeshadow Palette with some bold colours to try this trend. This NYX palette from Target is an example. Try applying the shade to the upper eyelid and see how it looks. Or try it just as a liner. Remember, anything goes!
Produtos de desperdício zero
As marcas de beleza com desperdício zero estão explodindo. Os produtos de desperdício zero são fabricados e embalados de forma que seu uso não gere resíduos em aterros sanitários. No sentido mais estrito, isso significa: nenhuma embalagem de plástico e totalmente reciclável. (Observe que alguns produtos com desperdício zero evitam o uso de plásticos confiando em recipientes recarregáveis. A ideia é que, se você reabastecer o mesmo recipiente repetidamente, ele nunca acabará no aterro sanitário.)
Popular zero -resíduos de produtos de beleza incluem giz de cera multiuso e batons e sombras recarregáveis. Você também pode encontrar barras de xampu sem desperdício, sabonetes faciais e até discos de algodão reutilizáveis. Mas depois de fazer compras em uma loja de desperdício zero, você verá uma variedade de produtos que estão fora de sua rotina de maquiagem. papel higiênico, pasta de dentes, canudos, recipientes para armazenamento de alimentos e muito mais.
Besides the epic summer eyes and lips, you will also see the natural makeup look on your feeds. We’re talking BB or CC cream, mascara, a touch of nude lipstick and another indication of colour on the cheeks.
You can easily get a natural look. If you are conscious of your skin, buy a quality BB cream. One of my favourites is Everglam with SPF 30, available on Amazon. It’s not cheap, but it offers amazing natural coverage. Next, check out our natural makeup tutorial and DIY moisturizer recipes for fresh, glowing skin.
You are speaking of glowing skin. If you don’t wake up with the fresh glow you desire, it’s easy to fake it.
You can use bronzer, illuminator, or rosy cheek patches to perfect your freshly showered, damp face. Try a rosy-toned moisturizer, a highlighting primer (with or without makeup), or a shimmering bronzer.
If this is your first attempt at using shimmer, start sparingly. Mix a radiant moisturizer with your regular product, then step out with a mirror to check your work. I can tell you from experience: if you overdo the shimmer, your friends may ask if you are okay.
Subtle Cat Eyes
Cat eyes are back most subtly. Ditch the black pencil or liquid eyeliner this year and opt for a soft brown or grey.
You also don’t need to reach the tips of the ears with the wings. Just fill in a good spot on the outer corner of the eye and connect it with a soft line above the upper lashes. If you want to bend the trends, cover your brown eyeliner with a bold shade of orange.
All this time, without access to eyebrows in the salon, has taught us that there is nothing wrong with how our eyebrows grow naturally. I love it when a trend gives me an excuse not to pay more for a service I never needed.
There is little to know if you want to be part of the natural eyebrow trend. You may need a clear shaping gel if your eyebrows are very uneven. Or, if your eyebrows are uneven and thin, you need a pencil or powder to fill them in. You probably already do this daily, but I love the RealHer eyebrow pencils if you need recommendations. I also used Clairol Root Concealing Powder in a pinch on my brows.
