While spring 2012 beauty trends are in full swing it’s almost time to start looking forward to summer beauty trends. Before I go into detail about what you can expect I should warn you that you’re going to be in for a lot of color this summer so get your makeup brush ready and get ready to feel creative.
If you want a look that will really turn heads try out a gold foil makeup look. Although the process is somewhat time consuming and maybe a little difficult for beginners it’s well worth the effort because it’s a look that’s a real head turner. While gold will definitely play nicely with the summer sunlight, you can use other metallic foil colors such as silver and copper.
Didn’t get enough sleep last night. No worries. All you have to do is take some midnight blue or black eye shadow and apply it all over your eyes so that you cover the top of your eye area as well as the bottom. Although this look was a hit on the runways I’m pretty sure that it won’t be too popular with the mainstream. It is an interesting look though.
Red lipstick is still a strong trend for spring but as far as the summer 2012 beauty trends go we’re seeing more vivid shades rather than berry shades. The point is to capture the flirty, fun feeling of summer and show it off in a playful manner. I’ve said this time and time again and I’ll say it again, if you shy away from red because you feel that it’s too bold, keep trying on different shades until you find one that looks great on you because there is a shade out there that will look beautiful on you.
Neon Eyes Makeup
Using neon eye shadow to make your eyes stand out is great way to look beautiful without being as fashion forward as using foil or outlining your eyes in black. While colors like neon yellow or pink are more daring you can still use this trend but in a more subtle colors such as lilac and turquoise.
Since the summer 2012 beauty trends are mostly about eye makeup it’s important to fatten up your lashes. Skinny lashes won’t be able to compete with all of the stunning colors you’re going to be applying to your lids so be sure to apply at least two coats of your favorite voluminizing mascara before you head out. Check out my post on what is the best mascara to get some ideas about which mascaras may work the best on you.
Had enough of over the top color for one day? Don’t worry you can still take it by opting for the natural look. While it’s the simplest one of the bunch, it’s certainly the most popular one both on the runways and in real life. Just be sure that any concealer or foundation that you apply blends effortlessly with your skin tone so that you appear to be free of makeup.
The summer 2012 beauty trends are bold and playful so this is your chance to really dig into your makeup bag and create something memorable.
