Summer 11/12 Makeup Trends

Now that summer is upon us, we thought it fitting to let you guys know about some of the current makeup trends for the season. This year, it’s all about timeless, minimalist beauty with subtle pops of color. Most of the trends won’t take any time at all to apply but will definitely make an impact.

Take a look!

The bright lip has slowly made its way into a lasting trend over the past few seasons. Moving from the bold, dark berry lip of autumn and winter, spice up your summer pout with orange-based reds, pinky pastels and lip stains of any shade.

Not in the mood for out-there lips? Opt for gloss, tinted lip balm or a pinky nude shade.

You can never go wrong with metallics in the summer time. They have the ability to make your eyes look alive and are a definite attention grabber.

This summer, try earth tone metallics. To wear, apply some eye primer then sweep your shade over choice over the eyelid and beneath the eye. For a special night out, add a light gold or shimmering white around the tear duct and on the brow bone for an extra accent.

A new kind of look for the adventurous women out there involves using a bright shade (purple, blue, green, whatever!) and applying it only to your crease with a blending brush and blend out. This is a wearable way to add a pop of color to your makeup routine without going overboard.

We’re all very used to wearing a golden, illuminating bronzer in the summer months to emphasize our tans. This season, try keeping your metallics on your eye and opting for a matte peach cheek color to accentuate your cheek bones and make you look naturally sun-kissed.
