Key Make-up Trends for Summer 16′.

I know, i know, it's only March and I'm already talking about Summer, but hey, it's my favourite season! 

Whether you attended any of the Fashion weeks this year or not, you will begin to start seeing repetitive make-up trends that will be popping up in fashion stores, magazines or in make-up departments as we're approaching Summer. And this summer, it better be bladdy hot or else I'm eloping to Barbados.  

Anyway, I thought I would whittle down some key make-up trends you'll start noticing as festival season is fast approaching. And this year, its a goodun. 

1. COLOUR POP. 

Colour Pop is all about channelling a statement bright eye or lip, whether it be rocking a vibrant fuchsia matte liquid lipstick and teaming it with a bold canary yellow eye, it's all about injecting some 80's magic onto the face.

2. IMPERFECT SKIN.

Did I just say "imperfect"? Yes I did. You can all breathe a massive sigh of relief at the fact that the summer trends are all about representing the real. If you have freckles, don't hide or cover them up. In fact, this season people will be drawing them on! For this trend think of it as a back to school vibe, rocking those back-packs and hair plaits in tow. The warmer the weather, the more you will see people breaking away from their full coverage bottles of cover up and cracking open the tinted moisturisers and light weight foundations. Colour correctors are on it's way out, as were finally embracing our skin the way we should.                                   Image source: Allure


3. GLOSS. 

Gloss on eyelids, above cheekbones and lips, Summer 16' is all about the glowy sheen and wet look that leaves everyone pining for the beach. It's also the quickest, low maintenance way of multi-using a product in three different ways. With the Matte liquid lipsticks that everyone has been buying on repeat, you will see a new order of lipgloss throbbing it's way back onto the scene.

4. BRUSHED BUSHY BROWS.

When Cara Delevingne stepped into the spotlight and onto that catwalk everyone wanted her brows. In fact, people would do almost anything to get them, resorting to brow implants just to rectify the brow plucking they had mastered in the 70's/80's when it was deemed cool to have little to none. 
But this year, the bush brow doesn't need to be perfect. Throw away your brow pencils and get to grips with your new best mate the brow gel. To create the 'brow bush', simply brush your brows with the gel or comb in sweeping directions to emulate a fluffy full brow look.

5. THINK PINK. 

You might not be girly and you may never have played with Barbies or think your related to a Unicorn but pink will be magically appearing into our wardrobes and on our faces. 
From pastels to bold tones, the shade pink will be festering around us like a growing giant blossom flower and we can't but help liking it.

6. GLITTERATI.

THANK GOD for this emerging trend and cheers Lady Gaga for repping the glitter    theme for the Super Bowl in America this year.
Glitter is causing a big scene this coming season and you'll see it scattered over the lids, used as a liner and a big favourite of mine, the glitter lips. Team this with the gloss trend and you're onto a festival winner.

7. GRAPHIC LINER.

Wing liner has been 'winging' it's way onto people's eyes from the mid noughties and has been a firm favourite look for many. But this season it's not just about the standard "cat flick" anymore. You'll be seeing a lot of bold choices taking place with the liner this coming year, from feline cat eyes, geometric shaping, double wings, liner used above the crease to create a modern 60s twist, as well as liner dots, extended bottom lashes, hearts and animated stars (think Kat Von D/ Marina and the Diamonds).

But the most fun thing about these trends is that it allows you to EXPLORE and make a  bitof a creative mess with these looks. Anything goes. Literally. 

So go get creating and share your make-up looks with me for the summer either on here or my Instagram!

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before. http://bing.net
