Well, guys, fall is just around the corner! Before we change gears and bust out all of our favorite berry tones, we gotta give one last ode to some of our favorite summer trends. Now we’re not saying you can’t rock fake freckles, colored lashes, lip oils, or dewy skin anytime of the year, but you can expect a transition into metallic lids, deep lips, dark eyes, and smooth matte finishes. We’ll talk fall trends later, we have a whole season of it soon approaching. We’re gonna get the most out of our last week of summer! So check out these trends, and see how many YOU can squeeze into the next 7 days.
Whether you spent your summer baking away in the sun or kept in the cool blast of AC, freckles will forever find their way into these months. If you weren’t able to grab enough rays, or if you just wanna up your cuteness level 1,000%, try out some fake freckles! Our favorite product to get our spots on are creamy Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrows. If you want a more natural look, opt for some of the warmer tones (auburn, chocolate) and avoid the more gray-based colors (taupe, granite). You can dot them on with a small pointed liner brush on your cheeks and nose, or dot the back of a beauty blender and pat them on that way! If you use a both of these methods, you’ll get a more natural look, with some softer and sharper dots!
Summer style is all about bright, bold colors! If you’re looking for a new way to pop some color in your look, try some colored lashes. They’re a super quick and fun way to draw attention to your eyes. Grab a colored mascara in your favorite shade, blue and purple are popular choices! Blue brings out brown and gray eyes, while purple is a gorgeous compliment to green, hazel, and blue eyes! Nyx Cosmetics has a few bright and fun colors to choose from. If you wanna be a little more extra, pop on a pair of lashes first and paint them! This is also a great way to transform cheap lashes into a fun and flirty look.
Glossy lips are the best summer treat! With the harsh drying sun, your lips need a little R&R from time to time. Lip oils are the perfect way to add a bit of color while still giving your lips hydration and nourishment! We are loving Lancome’s Juicy Shakers (which just released this summer!). They come in a ton of fun colors and make your lips feel like little tasty cushions.
The best way to get a matte finish to your summer makeup is to avoid it! Opt for a fresh dewy face instead. This look is perfect for the beach! If you get the dew just right then you can rock a fresh face all summer. The key is to use the right kind of illuminator. Nyx Liquid Illuminator is just perfect. You can apply this all over your face before foundation to give your skin a subtle shine. When you’re finished with your face, use a damp beauty blender to dab a bit more on your cheeks, forehead, nose and wherever else you want to be extra dewy! Using a liquid illuminator will let your skin shine thru, in the best way possible.
While we’re so sad to say goodbye to summer, we will be sticking with these fun trends for months to come! Maybe pairing our faux freckles with a deep mahogany lip, or whatever new fun trends fall will bring! Be sure to get in your last dash of summer this week, and let us know your favorite summer trends that you just can’t say goodbye to.
