Let’s talk about bold makeup trends for summer! After seeing how much you liked my post a few weeks back on 5 wearable summer 2020 makeup trends I thought it would be fun to do a post on BOLD trends. These may not be something you’ll be wearing every day but these 3 trends are definitely must-try’s for events this summer.
In addition to sharing these 3 bold makeup trends for summer, I’m going to share some tips and tricks on how to do them. Let’s get to it!
This is such a fun bold trend. It’s really versatile and you can play around with colors to best suit your personality. All you need to do for this trend is apply liquid eyeliner in the same shape you would do if you were lining your eye … but do so a few centimeters higher, just above your eyelid.
If you’re looking for some new liquid liner to try it this out, I am a huge fan of this drugstore one (comes in a bunch of colors) and I love this one. It’s a bit pricey but the liquid goes on so smoothly and doesn’t budge all day.
The feathered brow trend has been growing (no pun intended ) for the past few months. This summer it will a huge beauty trend. It’s a bold brow, for sure, but it’s actually really wearable as you can still have them your natural color and shape them as you like. The ‘key’ to the feathered brow is the upward angle of the hair. There are three main ways to achieve this look this summer:
1. Brow Gel: This one is really popular. Use it as you would a mascara wand & simply swipe the spooly brush upwards. If you have stubbon eyebrows that like to grow downwards naturally (like mine!) this probably is not going to cut it for you to get your brows staying in place in that feathered look, so if that’s you move on to option 2!
2. Soap Brows: If you haven’t heard of soap brows you are missing out! This is a super fun trend making the rounds of the beauty world right now and it’s an easy, affordable way to achieve feathered brows. Check out this YouTube tutorial for more!
3. Laminated Brows: This can be done at many salons now, but did you know you can also do it at home?! I just did an at-home brow lamination kit! I did a post on my full experience so check out I Tried At-Home Brow Lamination: Here’s What Happened.
Neon colors are a BOLD trend that has moved from clothing to makeup! You’ll find neon eyeliners, shadows, lipsticks and even mascaras trending this summer. You can keep things simple with a neon all over eyeshadow or amp up this trend even more with color blocking. One trend we’re seeing is using both a neon eyeliner and a complimentary color neon shadow. Think: neon yellow & neon purple or neon pink & neon green. Below are some of my favorite neon products available right now!
Which of these three trends is your favorite!?
