Summer Beauty Trend #1: Glossy Lips
When the golden hour strikes, it’s time to get those lips looking luscious, darling. Glossy, full lips never go out of style; so if you don’t want to try a crazy new make-up look, then simple lip gloss is perfect for summer. Swipe on a coat of this Max Factor Max Effect Gloss Cube for a mirror shine and an instantly plumper pout. Finish off this radiant make-up with a lustrous highlighter like the Maybelline Strobing Highlighter Stick. This can be applied on the tops of the cheek bones, cupid’s bow, nose bridge and brow bone, for an all over dewy look that will have you looking fresh in the summer sun.
Summer Beauty Trend #2: Flushed Cheeks
Blusher can really bring you back to life – especially after staying at home all year. Rosy cheeks are key to looking fresh and radiant – as well as slightly sun-kissed! If you’re feeling bold, try taking the blush high up into your cheekbones and brow bone for an editorial model look. For the best pink glow, try this Elizabeth Arden Cheek Tint which has a gel formula that will help your skin to appear moisturised and luminous. Don’t forget to sweep it across the tip of your nose so you look like you have slightly caught the sun!
Summer Beauty Trend #3: Bold Green Eyeshadow
If you’re ready to experiment with bright shades, then a bright green eyeshadow look is currently taking the beauty world by storm. Whether you have brown, green, blue or amber eyes, green eyeshadow is the best to make sure your eye colour pops – choose between a smoky eye or cut out a graphic defined crease to take your make-up to the next level. Get your hands on this Max Factor Eyeshadow Palette in Jade to create a striking emerald green smoky eye. You can pair this with a glossy lip for a match made in heaven!
Summer Beauty Trend #4: Bronzed Goddess
This is a classic summer look that will never go out of style. Grab your bronzer and carve out those cheek bones, girl! For making you look like you’ve just returned from a beachy holiday, apply this Dirty Works Hello Sunshine Bronzer to your cheekbones, forehead, jaw line and across the nose. This warm-toned bronzer will provide a natural contour, whilst the slight shimmer will enhance your summer glow. Make sure you make those cheek bones pop by adding a highlighter. This can be cream, liquid or powder highlighter (they’re all available at FabFinds!). The highlighter will catch those sun rays beautifully for an unbelievably radiant effect. Definitely time to grab a quick selfie!
Summer Beauty Trend #5: BB Cream For The Win
Heavy foundations + balmy, sweaty weather = makeup mayhem. Trust us. But there is a way to still achieve a more even complexion without the hassle of full coverage foundation. Say hello to the invention of the wonderful BB creams and CC creams! The light-weight formula of BB creams offer the perfect blend of skincare and make-up. With the effect of a tinted moisturiser, these BB creams will work to even out your skin tone, whilst still maintaining a natural look. As well as this, many of these BB creams are super moisturising and nourishing for the skin, as well as containing high SPF factors so you can enjoy the summer protected from harmful UV rays.
On FabFinds, we have cult beauty classics like the Rimmel London 9 in 1 Skin Perfecting BB Cream or the L'Oreal Bonjour Nudista Skin Tint BB Cream. Both of these formulas are developed to deliver a natural and glowy coverage, whilst intensely nourishing the skin for a smoother complexion. The breathable textures make them ideal for those toasty temperatures ahead.
