6 of our favourite summer makeup trends

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to make some changes to your beauty regime. Look your best with our edit of the hottest summer makeup trends to try. 

Here’s 6 of our favourite.

1. Disco eyes

There were a raft of distinctively retro eye looks across the spring-summer 2019 catwalks, which got us feeling all disco. From bright eye shadows in beautiful shades of fuchsia and cobalt to neon yellow and green, your eyes are going to be nothing short of showstopping this season. And if you’re heading to a festival this summer, you’ll love the trend for graphic glitter shadows really giving your eyes a glam overhaul. Those who are a fan of cat flick liner should also take note – this is the season to go much bolder, from lengthier extensions to full-on motifs.

2. Bronzed and beautiful

If you’ve had enough of contouring, you’ll be pleased to hear that it continues to lose its appeal with designers through into summer. This season bronzed is back so dig out that bronzing brush and embrace a sun-kissed and glowing complexion. This looks great with slicked back hair and natural eye makeup, giving you that surfer girl vibe.

3. No makeup, makeup

The trend to look like you just stepped out of the salon after an hour-long facial isn’t going anywhere fast. But if you don’t have the time (or money) for daily expert exfoliation, then prepping the skin is key. An overnight hydrating mask, a good tinted moisturiser and barely-there blush will give you just the right amount of illusion for your look au naturel.

4. Bushy brows

We’ve spent so long sculpting our brows into perfectly square-edged arches that this latest brow trend is a real turn up for the books. Bushy brows were heavily featured on the catwalks, but don’t think it’s OK to miss those next few brow appointments just yet. You still need to keep them in check; makeup artists were brushing up the hairs on well-maintained brows making them much appear fuller and more natural.

6. Hey, Freckles

For years, freckles have been hidden underneath foundations and concealers, but now beauty artists are turning to eyeliner pencil to actually create them as part of their looks instead. Honestly, we never saw the problem in the first place, so if you have them wear them all the time, anytime with pride.
