As we transition from spring to summer, the colors are also becoming even more vivid. Welcome the summer into full gear by having your brushes and palettes ready for this season’s make up trends.
MAKE UP TRENDS FOR SUMMER 2012
Toned Down Neon
Last year’s trend was all about colors that just scream for attention. This year, the neon trend is back with a more toned down version. If you are a little hesitant to pull off this look, use only one color and choose which part of your face you’d want to highlight. For example, you can use a different colored mascara or a bright colored lipstick. Keep the rest of your face neutral and let the color speak for itself.
Sporty, Dewy Finish
This summer, it’s all about the healthy dewy finish. I’m not saying that you’d need to look like a grease face in order to get this look. Great make up looks start with a clean and moisturized face. It’s time to amp up your skin care routine so that your make up will look as smooth as silk.
Soft Romantic Touches
If you want to keep everything simple, a soft, romantic look is just for you. Start with a dewy face and use a lip stain to give your lips that all-natural tint. Youthful brows and a touch of shimmer on the lids will seal the deal.
If you want to add a little drama on your lids, bronze or metallic hues are perfect for summer parties. Champagne hues, golds and coppers will surely make your eyes pop.
