Want a fresh new look for the warmer months? Well, you’re in luck, as there are some gorgeous new updates on classic looks for the Spring/Summer season. And there’s no need to clear your dressing table to make way for a mountain of new beauty buys. Chances are you’ll already have most of what you need to get these looks. Although you might want to indulge yourself with a few new treats…
Glow for it
If you don’t have a lot of dressing table time in the mornings you’ll love this trend. It’s the ’no-makeup-makeup’ look. Start by getting silky-looking skin with a hint of BB cream or light foundation to even out your skin, add a little bronzer or blush, a neutral-coloured shadow and coat of mascara on your lashes, followed by a slick of gloss on your lips. Natural beauty at its glowing best.
Step away from that liquid liner, as this look is all about the kohl. Draw a line on the upper and lower lashes (without the ‘cat-flick’ extension), then slightly smudge the line with a cotton bud – for a defined, smoky-eyed look.
Girls’ night out
You know that old beauty rule about either making your eyes or your lips a focus? Well, you can throw that rulebook out of the window, because for SS17 eyes and lips are big. The key to looking chic (and not like you’ve had a fight with a makeup bag, eek!) is to choose colours that complement each other, rather than ones that clash. For example, go for purple eye makeup and fuchsia lips.
Smudged and smoked
Sultry eyes are top of the beauty list for SS17, and what better way to highlight your peepers than with a glossy, wet-look shadow smudged into your upper and lower lids? Keep it light for a fresh and summery (yet still rock ‘n’ roll) look.
All that glitters
Glitter isn’t just for the festive season. A sweep of sparkle on eyes, cheekbones or even your lips can look beautifully ethereal on a balmy summer evening. Just don’t add it to more than one of your facial features – or you’ll risk looking like a walking, talking disco ball…
