Summer Beauty Trends
August 27, 2020 5:38 am
Even though this year has undoubtedly been quite different to what we were used to, that doesn’t mean that summer is canceled and all hope is lost. In fact, this season has turned out to be the ideal time to experiment with different looks at home, without having to deal with the constant outdoor heat and sweat, and find out what looks suit us the best. To that end, here are some of the biggest beauty trends of this summer that are worth trying out once you do step outside:
A beautiful sun-kissed glow
Glowing, radiant skin is always on trend, especially during the summer months. It allows us to achieve that ‘just got back from a vacation’ look, even though we spent most of the season glued to our desk. To get this desirable look, start by applying a very lightweight, dewy base that will simply even out your skin tone, without being too heavy and covering up the natural skin texture, and then go in with a touch of concealer, if necessary.
Then, apply a light layer of warm, shimmering bronzer on those areas where the sun would naturally hit your face, like the forehead, cheeks and nose, for the perfect healthy summer glow. You can also apply the same bronzer on your eyelids for a gorgeous monochromatic look.
Simple graphic eyeliner
The music video for Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s collaboration has clearly had a major influence on today’s beauty trends; clean and simple graphic eyeliner has been seen all over social media lately. Whether you opt for an extended cat eye in white, or even a negative space in black or a bolder color, such daring graphic eyeliner is bound to make an impact.
No matter which look you go for, just make sure to use either a fine-tip liquid eyeliner or a gel liner with a thin and precise brush. These beauty blogger makeup techniques and essentials will allow you to get a clean and smooth line, without any smudges or unnecessary mistakes. If you do mess up though, don’t worry. A Q-tip dipped in makeup remover will solve all your problems.
Long and voluminous hair
Long, flowing hair with a slight natural wave seems to be the defining look of every summer, and this season is no different. Many women have decided to utilize the lockdown to allow their hair to grow out properly, giving them a long, thick and sexy style for the summer.
However, not everyone’s lucky enough to achieve this look naturally. If you weren’t blessed with a full head of hair, it might be a good idea to opt for silky and seamless clip in hair extensions that beautifully blend in with your natural strands, and give you enough length and volume to achieve this summer’s biggest hair trend.
Luscious natural curls
On the other end of the spectrum, curly, coily and kinky girls have also decided to use the quarantine period to let their hair grow out without worrying about unnecessary damage. For that reason, natural hair has become one of the biggest trends this season.
What’s more, curly women have finally decided to embrace the summer humidity and let it work in their favor by adding some bouncy volume to their natural texture. As long as your hair gets proper moisture with deep conditioning, and nice definition with a great curl cream, you can easily let your natural coils shine this summer, despite the unfavorable weather.
A hint of a subtle tan
The fact that we were forced to stay indoors for several months also means we probably ended up with an unusually pale complexion when summer began. This could explain why so many women decided on a self-tanner at home, making it one of the biggest beauty trends of the season.
But keep in mind that the trick is not to go overboard. Instead, opt for a subtle, gradual tanner that will add just a slight tint each time you apply it. That way, you can easily control your shade, while achieving that glowing, healthy complexion we all strive for during the summer.
While this year’s situation has definitely taken us by surprise, it seems like our beauty game is as strong as ever, with these wonderful seasonal trends heavily focused on natural beauty and that easy-going summer vibe.
