Makeup Trends for Summer 2017


Summer is officially here – and it’s a perfect time to try some of the season’s new makeup trends! There’s something for everybody this year, ranging from fresh, natural looks to bold attention-getters. Whether you’re looking for a popular everyday look or something unique for a special occasion, you’ll find it in this summer’s trends.

Eyes are the focus for many of summer’s makeup trends. Cat-eye looks are still popular, but for the summer, the look is changing from basic black to light, bright shades like white and pastels. With or without the cat-eye on the lower lid, graphic designs on the upper eyelid stand out well. If you’re looking to add attention-getting color, this can be achieved under the eye, with a more traditional shadow color on the lid. Shimmering effects are popular and can be achieved with holographic shades or clear gloss topcoats over a pastel base.

Bright lips accentuate every look, and summer trends include two-tone colors, glitter, and bold, vibrant colors. Bright lips against a more muted palette create an intense and interesting contrast.

Cheeks are where the makeup look is pulled together, and blush placement can draw attention toward or away from another feature; for example, if you have a light sunburn, a brighter shade of blush can make things look more natural. Blush higher on the cheekbones brings the focus up to your eye, and lower draws more attention to lips.

Finally, if you like to keep it simple, the minimalist look is very easy to pull off in the summer. Nude and neutral or light pastel/peachy colors create a natural look that still accentuates your positive features while making it appear that you are wearing no makeup at all. This look is great for the beach, casual parties, or long outdoor excursions.
