Summer 2017 Makeup Trends

Celebrate the change in season with some fun, new beauty trends. Summer 2017 brings many stylish makeup ideas to the table, ranging from white wingliner to gold eyeshadow. The stand-out trends for the upcoming months include bold, bright looks that include plenty of glitter and shimmer. Here’s a look at the ultimate makeup trends for summer.

Rosy Cheeks

Summer 2017 is the season of blush. Intense pink cheeks give the face a youthful appearance and a natural-looking flush. Pink blush should remain localized on the apples of the cheeks. Apply in circular motions using a small, dome-shaped brush with a flat, dense head.

Gold Eyeshadow

Look like royalty this summer with a touch of gold on your lids. This bold color certainly makes a statement so you’ll want to keep the rest of your face with little to no makeup. For a full gold eye makeup experience, apply a shimmery gold shadow to your lids and line your upper and lower eyelids with creamy gold eyeliner.

Lip Gloss

The last few years have been all about the liquid matte lip. This summer you’ll likely see a plethora of lip gloss shades designed to give your pout dimension and shine. Darker colors are in, with go-to shades like deep plum, electric orange and red wine. For ladies who prefer a subtle approach to makeup, clear gloss can give you a fresh-faced look.

Highlighted Skin

Our list of top makeup trends wouldn’t be complete without a highlighter. A glowing complexion is key for beautiful summer makeup. Add a touch of highlight to the inner corners of the eyes, as well as the nose, cheeks, and cupid’s bow. If you don’t like the look of shimmery highlighters, moisturize well to create a natural glow.

Grungy Eyes

Grungy eye makeup has made a major comeback. This look features black eyeshadow over the lids and under the eyes, black eyeliner, and plenty of mascara. Falsies really make the look pop. As the grungy eye look can be really striking, it’s best to leave the rest of your makeup light and minimal. Your eyes should be the main focus of your look.

Straight, Tinted Brows

Say goodbye to the arch and hello to straight brows. This dramatic look perfectly frames the eyes and can take years off your face. You may want to head to the salon the first time around. To maintain your new brows, use a pair of tweezers and an eyebrow pencil. To make your freshly brushed brows stay in place all day, try a tinted brow gel.

Pops of Glitter

Most women like a little glitter in their lives. This summer add a touch of glitter to your lips, eyebrows, or forehead in the form of an abstract tattoo. A few glitter pigments can also be added to your cheeks for a hint of sparkle. For make an even bigger statement, use sequins or rhinestones in lieu of glitter.

Whether you’re itching to try the grungy eye look or are looking for the perfect deep plum lip gloss, these prominent 2017 makeup trends are sure to get you in the mood for summer.
