Get excited: summer is right around the bend! Though this one may be a lot less social from summers past, that shouldn’t stop you from wanting to look and feel your best. From bbq’s to virtual happy hours to a selfie on the ‘gram, here are 4 trends that are a must try this summer.

Pastel eyes 

Summer is all about stepping away from neutrals and giving color a try! This summer, we’re taking the neon trend we loved this winter and softening it, by watering it down to a dreamy pastel palette. Sport it as a liner or try the watercolor shadow trend.

Natural Skin

The warmer it gets, the less we want to wear and this goes for makeup too. This year has had a major focus on all things skincare, so now is the perfect time to let our skin do the talking! Swap your full coverage foundation for something lighter, like a skin tint or tinted moisturizer. Show off those freckles and top off your look with a dewy highlight and brow gel. 

White Eyeliner 

Graphic liner has been everywhere this year from runways to red carpets. The summer version calls for using white liquid liner for a bold look that will make your eyes pop. Try a classic cat eye or get artistic with floating liner.

Glowy Blushy Skin

When it comes to complexion, there is going to be a HUGE emphasis on a natural, sunkissed glow this summer. We’re talking a dewy and dreamy, blushy and peachy, post-vacation glow- even if you’re staying indoors. To get the look, try a liquid blush and an illuminating highlighter.
