Summer is finally here! While you are busy planning your next trip to the beach, packing your bikinis and sunscreen, we take a look at some of the hottest runway trends in hair, makeup and looks to rock this year’s summer and be the ultimate Sun Goddess!
Gold glitter eyeshadow- Let your eyes be the center of attention by applying loose gold or copper glitter to the inner corners, top and bottom lash line. For added drama, line the upper lid with gold liner and dot inner corners of the eye with gold eyeshadow. To finish off the look, lightly apply nude lip gloss to the lips and keep brows natural looking.
Blue eyeliner and Mascara- Yes, as blue as the skies and the ocean, aqua eyes is another summer must-have. Use waterproof blue eyeliner to create a sexy cat eye or wing in place of the usual boring black, curl your lashes and apply similar shade blue mascara.
Strobing- Summer is all about that J.Lo Glow. Soft dewy skin is perfect for that sexy bronze sun glow you have after basking in the sun. To achieve this look, strobing comes instead of the usual contouring trend which has been hot for awhile. Strobing focuses on highlighter and other illuminating products applied where light would naturally hit your face. Cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, cupid’s arrow and on your chin. Dabbing on these soft, shimmery shades will make your complexion look radiant, fresh, dewy, healthy while giving you an ethereal glow that is sure to turn heads!
Fishtail or Herringbone Braids - Play with contrasting textures by pairing wet, slicked back hair with a big deconstructed fishtail braid. Comb hair in place with gel, divide into three sections and cross them over and underneath one another. Finish by pulling the braid apart with your finger and spraying your favorite hair product for gloss.
Floral Hair Accessories- Sweet dainty flowery motifs are also perfect for both Spring and Summer. Whether you wear your hair down or loosely braided, Floral scarves, flower crowns or headbands make a cute hair accessory for that ultimate bohemian laid back look.
