Summer Beauty Trends

With summer less than a month away and our temperatures rising, it's time to give thought about the best no mess, no stick, summer beauty trends out there. It's hard to even think about wearing foundation, blush, or lip gloss when you'll be sweating it off in a few hours but it's all good! This season, the trends are carefree, forgiving of the heat and humidity, and so fun to play with so let's have a look starting with the base.

Summer 2013 beauty trends

The thought of wearing full on foundation to the beach is seriously gross! One wipe to the forehead, and your hand is covered in makeup and sweat, not cute. For SPF infused light coverage, go for BB or CC creams. Check out my post  on BB creams and finding the best one for you.

Bronzing all over with that big fluffy brush is almost too summery and so expected. One trend I like for its uniqueness is ditching the all over and go for a peachy, subtle bronzer look, only on the cheekbones. Try this Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Perfect Bronzer, available at Sephora.

Lipsticks tend to get the cold shoulder during the hot summer days. We go for a light lip gloss which is fine but I don't like the sticky feeling that comes all with it. I'm already feeling stick and gross with the humidity, do I really need it on my lips? Matte pop lips are the answer!! BOLD, matte lips were a stand-out trend at the spring/summer 2013 shows. The velvety matte lip in a summery bright, is still  seasonal, but the finish makes it fresh. You can go a little neon in the middle of the lips for more dimension or shape up your lips for a fuller retro look. How to wear coral lips

Now what about nights? Everyone knows that there's a day and there's a nighttime lipstick and I've got both covered. The day belongs to the bold matte pop lips and the night to the smoldering satin dark berry or cherry. Keep your lips luscious and modern by avoiding shades with chocolate brown undertones, which can give it a 90's feel. 

Which trend are excited about trying? 
I want to try out the lipstick, both pop and dark cherry!

Let's Hang Out!!
