Natural and Radiant Look

Enhance your skin's natural texture and rock the "no-makeup" makeup look this summer! To perfect this trend, you need to use good base makeup products to enhance your own skin. Byrdie recommends using sheer foundation to make your skin tone look even without creating a cakey finish on your skin. You can also use tinted moisturizers, like Honest Beauty’s Clean Corrective Tinted Moisturizer, since these products usually contain SPF that will protect your skin from the harsh sun.
The problem with base products, however, is that they can melt from your skin during warmer months. According to PrettyMe, you can protect your makeup and create a dewy effect on your skin with the help of setting sprays. You can use Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dewy Set or Pixi by Petra’s Makeup Fixing Mist, which will hydrate your skin and hold your makeup base at the same time.

Eye contact has really become significant during the past year, so it’s no wonder that a lot of amazing eye makeup trends have surfaced. If you love using eyeliner, now's the perfect time to experiment. Trying a graphic style will put you right on-trend. An inexpensive way to experiment is with the NYX’s Epic Wear metallic liquid eyeliner, which also comes in shades of fuschia metal, teal metal, and brown metal.
A lot of celebrities have also been elevating their eye makeup by incorporating various pastel hues into their look. Indeed, if you have fun makeup palettes like Morphe’s 25L Live in Color Artistry Palette, then you can experiment with bright and glittery colors, which are great for summer. Our very own Jill Rossini also recommends adding shimmery tones in the center of your lid to make your eyes look brighter.

It’s beautiful to use bright and colorful lipsticks, especially during summer! These fun lip colors are taking the center stage again this season because they can complement your skin and make it look vibrant and healthy.
Pink, coral, peach, and red are the trendiest colors to wear this summer, but they may not fit all skin tones. StyleCraze suggests that your skin undertone may point you towards the best lipstick shades for you. Those with warmer undertones, for example, would look best in tangerine lipsticks like Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Lip Lacquer in 08. On the other hand, those with cool undertones can try soft pink lipsticks, such as Bobbi Brown’s Crushed Lip Color in Babe.

This is the easiest summer makeup trend, but don't underestimate its power! Over the past few years, everyone has quickly learned that eyebrows are the most important features on your face. This summer, people are enhancing their eyebrows by creating the brushed-up eyebrow look.
This makeup trend gives the appearance of thicker and polished eyebrows that don't look too dense or bold. Plus, this simple makeup trick can create the illusion of an eyelift! To create this look, it’s best to use clear brow gels like Glossier’s Boy Brow or CoverGirl’s Clear Brow Setting Gel.
You can look better than ever with these simple yet stunning summer makeup trends! You'll surely turn heads with the use of a good makeup base, bold eye products, colorful lipsticks, or a clean and polished brow.
