Guest Post: The Most Talked About Summer Makeup Trends

Fashion blogs, magazines and websites directly influence both our cupboards and wardrobes. So if you’ve already chronicled your favorite outfits and accessories for summer 2015, it’s time to top off your best looks with the hottest summer makeup trends. Here are the top makeup trends to try this summer.

1_Welcome back the Lipstick

1. Welcome Back Lipstick

Nude lips might have been the trend for several seasons, but this summer colorful lips are back. Try out the red hot lipsticks from Burberry Beauty or a smudgy stain from Topshop Unique. Remember, men may come and go, but your favorite shade of lipstick is forever!

2_Embrace the colour Purple

2. Embrace the Color Purple

The color of summer when it comes to highlighting the beauty of your eyes is purple.  Lilac is known not only to improve but also optimize every skin tone. Try a grape shade inspired by Vera Wang’s SS15 runway show. To complement your purple eye makeup, you could sport light purple apparel too. But, I’m sure you don’t want to go on the date with your best eye makeup all alone! If you want to shop for your better half too, click here.

3_Anti cat eyes

3. The Anti Cat Eye

Eyeliners give you a reason to be late! Black eyeliners never fail to be a part of any season, but for summer, the way to wear them is different. Start applying it from the middle of your eye to its extreme corner, like we saw Prada and Celine do on the runways. For a truly graphic effect, keep the line straight.

4_Glow Bronzing Powder

4. Glow Bronzing Powder

Summer makeup is absolutely incomplete without bronzer. You can try the Glow Bronzing Powder by Dolce & Gabbana that promises a sun-kissed, natural-looking tone. If this does not suit your skin type, you could also check out sun-inspired bronzing powders by Avon.

5_Metallic Nails

5. Metallic Nails

Metallic manicures are so hot this season. Flaunt your flawless summer skin by using metallic nail polishes. Browse through the Dark Stromboli, Silvery Platinum or Golden Desert shades by Dolce & Gabbana! It’s the little things that attract the most attention.

6_Simple Hair-do

6. Simple Hair

The hairstyles for summer are always very simple. To avoid the sweat and uneasiness, most would prefer to tie up their hair. You can decorate your buns with flowers or very simple accessories. If you don’t like to tie your hair back, just a simple middle parting is totally in!

7_Do not hide your freckles

 

7. Don’t Hide Your Freckles

During summer, freckles are one of your greatest blessings and you sure would not want to hide them under concealers. Try Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Color compact that provides warm color to the face, without concealing or mattifying.

They say that the most beautiful makeup for women is their passion, but cosmetics are easier to buy. So, hit refresh on your makeup kit. Happy shopping!

Creeds Collective Summer of Creeds Beach House Party

Over the weekend, Creeds Collective, an influencer community centered around ethical, eco-friendly and charitable fashion and beauty brands invited me to their Summer of Creeds event on Long Island. It was great to get out of the city and spend a day at a fabulous Long Beach beach house connecting with fellow bloggers and experiencing the amazing things sustainable brands are doing. Together we’re making the fashion and beauty industries even more beautiful for the next generation. Here’s what went down!

Get Wickd Custom Candles

I fell in love with these custom soy candles by Get Wickd. I need one now!  You can send them your own bottles to make into candles and they also recycle bottles from restaurants and turn them into beautiful candles.

If you have a special bottle you drank out of at your wedding, birthday or other celebration Get Wickd can turn it into an amazing candle for your home. This is also a great way to surprise a friend after partying with them.  Can you see why I’m obsessed?

Lately, I’ve been fascinated by the newly iconic X Ring. Though it has nothing to do with X-Men or The X-Files, its fabulousness is totally out of this world. Whether you’re on your way to a black tie event or getting crazy at a music festival, the X Ring’s sleek and modern design is sure to be the perfect addition to your outfit.

While the price differences between fine jewelry and costume jewelry tend to be drastic, you can rock a shimmering X Ring no matter what your budget may be.
