When it comes to smokey eyes, don’t be afraid to use different hues and add more colour to the otherwise monochrome classic.  Red or pink, usually colours for the lips, are a new way to accentuate your eye color, and perhaps a lighter look for the warm summer months.

2.Charade, the Teal Nail Colour

Teal is appearing not only in the latest hair color trends, but also the latest in nail color.  If you’re into a more ‘au naturale’ look, sporting a natural sun kissed glow, mascara and some lipgloss, adding a touch of nail colour adds character.

Instagram intense contouring is slowly fading away, and the no makeup trend or minimal foundation is slowly making its way in.  A more effortless, sun-kissed complexion is redefining the latest beauty trends, featuring slightly bronzed cheekbones.  Perhaps the emphasis here is on healthier skin, achieved by a regular cosmetic regimen and a healthy lifestyle.

6. The Bold Lip

This season it’s all about experimenting with pouts covered in much bolder shades, and daring to rock glitter covered lips.  Deep daring wine colours and electric oranges, as well as multiple shades of magenta are making a statement not only on the runways but on the streets as well.  Make a bold impression with the lip colour of your choice.

Evidently, this season, it’s all about changing your makeup look one way or the other.  Fuller brows, means less tweezing, glowing cheeks means less contouring while risking it with the bolder lips and eyes.  Whatever your choice may be, it comes down to trying something new for the summer and having fun along the way.
