If lockdown has given us anything, it’s definitely more time to nail the latest makeup trends that are all over Instagram right now. It has been the ideal opportunity to experiment and rock bold new looks around the house ready for when we can go ‘out out’ once again.
So, here are some of the top trends that makeup artists and celebs are sporting this summer:
To complement the traditional top liner looks this season, the lower lashes are also getting their moment. To get the look, just apply the same shade or a lighter colour to add a fun and bold frame to the eye.
One of the biggest eye makeup trends to hit Insta is glossy eyes. Instead of traditional powder eyeshadows, apply a glossy option to eyelids to get a shimmery and sultry look. You can also rock this style with bright eyeliner to make it really pop.
Coloured mascara is making a comeback, and we love the range of options available. Match your mascara with your lips with hot pinks tones or opt for deeper hues such as blue or green.
While a bold red lip is always doing the rounds, it’s sister shade pink is now taking centre stage. There is a colour to suit everyone’s skin tone and style, and for staying power opt for a matte shade to rock the look all day. There are lots of options available so check out lovetoslay.co.uk for popular brands.
Eyeliner has taken a new approach this summer and has strayed a little way from the lash line. Moving up across the top of the eyelid is where it’s at right now, so get practising, as it’s this summer’s hottest celeb trend.
Fluffy brows were so last year! Instead, 2020 sees structured brows take shape, giving us a strong and polished look for the season. Why not opt for a clear brow gel to help tame them too.
As the festival season was a no-go this year, that doesn’t mean we didn’t have fun recreating some dazzling looks to rekindle the memories. However, instead of bright jewels, everyone is lusting after gold studs, neutral-coloured gems and shimmery stones.
If you want to turn heads this summer, then mismatching your eyeshadow colour is certainly going to get people talking. You’ve got the option to go bold with contrasting bright colours or stick to similar hues such as blues and lilacs.
Barely there lip colour is the perfect summer makeup look. You don’t have to go bold with colour to make a statement, plus this trend is natural and ultra-low maintenance.
Pastel colours are always a hit in spring, and they’re continuing their popularity into summer too. Opting for these tones offers a subtle way to add colour without overwhelming your look, and they’re perfect for anyone looking to experiment with pretty pastel palettes.
