Hot Summer 2015 Beauty Trends

Hot Summer 2015 Beauty Trends

| On 20, Jan 2015

Whether your sitting by the pool enjoying a nicely chilled beverage or talking a stroll down the beach, these summer beauty trends are essential for every girls makeup and beauty routine.

All these summer beauty trends can easily be amplified for a dramatic night time look or naturalised from an everyday colour burst. No matterwhat makeup beauty look you embrace, a common trend amongst them all, is bright, tropical colour.

Bright daring lip

Loud and bold lip colors are the trending statement piece that completes any summer outfit. Neon orange, hot pink and audacious reds, speak volumes and draw together any makeup look. Loud mouth colors compliment any outfit, style and accessory, it can be teamed up with a simple monochrome dress for a pop of color effect, or added to a bold and bright two piece for a tropical and flamboyant creation.

Replace your typical matte lipstick with a glossy lip lacquer. Lip lacquers provide excellent color pay off while also adding glossy and sheen to your pout.





Bronzed, glowing skin

An obvious beauty trend that has been popular not just in the summer of 2015 but for decades, is the striking appearance of golden and healthy-looking looking skin. Not only does a contoured and bronzed face give the perception of a contoured and bronzed body it defines the and sculptures the face, giving a slimmer appearance. Glowing skin adds elements of radiance and youthfulness to the face, however glowing skin should not be confused with shiny oily skin. To achieve glowing skin, illuminators and highlighters in creams and powders are perfect choices.

Opt for Nars bronzing powder in Laguna or the UKs best selling bronzer in hoola. For highlighter and glow you cant go wrong with Hourglass Ambient Light palette.


Natural coral or pink flushed cheeks

Cool toned blushes are essential makeup staples for any summer look. The classic pink flush will brighten up a basic makeup application and add a feminine and youthful touch without the need for dramatic eye shadow and glossy lips. While a coral blush on the cheeks adds definition to the cheekbones, while adding to a bronzy tanned appearance.

Cream blushes are ideal for the summer time, as they don’t mattify your face but provide a fresh dewy finish. Follow in the steps of makeup artists and invest in some crème blushes such as the Yves Saint Laurent Crème De Blush or for something more affordable Nars The Multiple , which can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks.



Purple and aquatic eyes

Lavender, neon purple, crystal blue and aqua sparkles are invading the makeup bags of runway shows. By adding bright and bold colors to your eye makeup, immediately any eye color pops and is intensified. Smaller hooded eyes should refrain from using to much color and focus on cooler tone purples and blues. At Giorgio Armani and Marc by Marc Jacobs summer fashion shows turquoise and electric blue were spotted on the eyes of catwalk models.
