Now that warmer weather is here, it’s time to break away from your winter beauty rut and experiment with a few of our favorite new trends. While the Instagram brow, extreme highlighter, and contouring trends may be fading, we are excited to say hello to these new spring/summer beauty trends!
Whether you’re into a very natural look or going all out with your makeup, there’s definitely a beauty trend that will work for you. Check out our 5 favorites below:
1. LIP GLOSS IS BACK
Get your shine on by ditching the matte lipsticks and adding a lip gloss to your everyday routine. Lip gloss not only gives your face youthful radiance but also the natural, dewy look we all want this summer. A few of our favorites include the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Shock Tart, Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Moon Jelly, and Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Candy Queen.
2. BLUE EYE SHADOW (YES, BLUE)
We have to give the early 2000s props for this trend, as blue eye shadow is making a huge comeback. You may remember Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera rocking pastel frosty blue eyelids, but this season a deeper tone of blue eye shadow is the new way to wear it. Embracing the bold shade is the first step to rocking it, and finding the right shade of blue for your skin tone. When applying blue eye shadow, the key is to not make it too perfect—just go for it! A dark blue lid and a nude lip is the perfect night-out combo. You can create this look by using NYX Cosmetics Pro Shadow in Electroshock.
3. FRESH FLORALS
Florals are everywhere this season, from embroidered denim and silky blouses to flowy dresses and even fragrance. Adding a floral fragrance to your rotation will keep you feeling refreshed and feminine all season long. Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce Garden is the perfect eau de parfum inspired by flowers blossoming in a Sicilian garden. We love how sweet and refreshing this scent is!
4. LESS IS MORE
You’ve been taking care of your skin all winter, right?! Now it’s time to show off all your hard work as the warm weather arrives! When it comes to makeup this season, one trend we’re loving is the “no makeup” look. Time to show off your beautiful, natural skin by wearing just a tinted moisturizer or concealer. To prep our skin for the warm weather, we’ve been using ARCONA all winter long! The Four O’Clock Flower daily moisturizer calms, hydrates, and strengthens skin. We love how this product soothes redness and calms the skin!
5. GO BRIGHT
When it comes to nails this season, leave the classic nudes and light pinks at home and go bright! Vibrant nails are one of our favorite trends, so it’s time to start rotating in bright oranges, yellows, and even green. Since spring is the perfect time to start gearing up toward bright summer colors, we love the essie spring 2018 collection. The collection was inspired by sailing down the coast and all the colors will make you want to say bon voyage, ASAP! We love the preppy blue “anchor down,” the intense teal “stripes & sails,” and the fiery orange “at the helm” colors—the collection has a shade for everyone!
