Summer Makeup Trends
MAKEUP - WHAT'S NEW

Summer Makeup Trends 2018

Flicking through magazines, watching the latest Youtube tutorials or seeing the amazing new makeup looks the celebs are rocking, I love discovering new makeup trends! I think it’s hard to keep up sometimes. Makeup is such an expressive art, there are no rules. Over time, new products launch and new crazes are born. As the seasons change, different colours are more popular and different effects go viral! I don’t know if you guys have seen but over the last few months there have been some CRAZY eyebrow ‘trends’. Coming up to the end of spring, we’re now heading into the summer makeup trends.

A lot of new products and trends sneak their way into your routine without you really noticing. I mean, if you had told me last year that I’d be putting pearlescent illuminating drops on my face, I’m not sure I would have believed you. But here we are, a year or so later and I’m covering myself in them. Hoping that you could see me from the moon haha. (No, seriously that’s goals)

Summer Makeup Trends...

As we are approaching the summer, I thought I would put together a handful of upcoming summer makeup trends for you guys. I haven’t gone too bizarre as I’m sure you’d agree, they need to be somewhat wearable! I will be pairing the trends with makeup products that you can achieve these looks with too. So it is all super easy and you’ll be bang on trend in a jiffy!

Blue Eyeshadow

Summer Makeup Trends

I don’t think I have EVER been tempted by a blue eyeshadow! I’m not very adventurous with my shadow range at all. I’m more of a warm tone, neutrals kind of gal. Recently, I’ve tried to experiment with some brighter oranges and pinks but that’s as far as it goes for me. Kim Kardashian is bringing it back. Bold eyeshadows are bang on trend for summer, especially this signature blue look. Kim’s new eyeshadow palette – KKW Beauty X Mario has the most beautiful blue shadow within the palette. Patrick Starr has also brought out an eyeshadow palette with a statement blue in his Patrick Star Floral Realness collection.

After seeing all of the excitement for blue eye makeup, I feel so inspired to rock it myself. Sometimes you need to have a little fun and step out of your comfort zone!

I've put together some amazing eyeshadow palettes below with beautiful bold shades. Click to shop!

Holographic Lips

Summer Makeup Trends Lime Crime

Holographic lips have made a comeback! They were all the rage in 2016 and now the trend is back and better than ever. Over the last few years, I’ve never latched onto the holographic lip trend but some of these products that I’ve put together below for you are subtle and BEAUTIFUL. I’ve never been a glitter lips kind of girl but a bit of shimmer? You don’t have to ask me twice! I think it can be super classy at the same time as fashionable. I picked up this gorgeous ‘lip topper’ from Lime Crime in the shade Choke, which can be used alone or on top of another lip colour of your choice. Two products in one really.  This is definitely one of my faves of the summer makeup trends.

Illuminating Setting Sprays

I mean, who doesn’t want to glow? As you guys know, I love the J-LO vibe! I need her glowy skin and I’ll do whatever it takes to achieve that haha. Illuminating products have gone crazy over the last few years, I completely jumped on the highlighting hype. Powder highlight, illuminating drops, primers that give you a glow, moisturisers, the list goes on! So when this craze started, I hopped on the bandwagon immediately. These sprays are used for setting your makeup in place without leaving that matte, powdery finish. Instead, they create a beautiful flawless glow, perfect for the summer. You can also be an absolute badass and apply this before makeup as well for the ultimate glow. Majority of these little heaven in a bottle sprays contain light reflectors and pearlescent specks, that’s how the illuminated glow is achieved. Did you guys expect to see this in my summer makeup trends?

Can you see there is a theme here? Shimmer, glitter, holographic, we are going to be shining bright this summer ladies! I’m SO ready. Another fave of mine is the glitter eyes trend. The Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow’s have been a massive hit over the last year or so. I still haven’t managed to get my hands on a set of them but they are on my wishlist because they look absolutely dreamy. It is such an amazing feeling when you get ready for a night out, apply some glitter shadow or eyeliner and feel super glam.

Beyonce’s makeup artist used holographic glitter for her Coachella performance, so if Beyonce’s wearing it, I don’t need persuading anymore than that!!

Whenever I buy magazines (which isn’t so often these days) I always flick to the section of new upcoming makeup trends. I want the gossip, I want to know what’s on trend! So that is one of the reasons I put this post together for you guys. I gathered not many people buy mags anymore because we have a huge presence on social media and can find out all we need to know here on the internet.

I hope you guys loved this style of blog post and are excited about the summer makeup trends! Let me know in the comments which ones you’ll be experimenting with or if you’re already on trend! Don’t forget to check out My Makeup Bag to keep up to date on all of my fave products right now.

As always,

Lots of Love…

    You should wear blue shadow! Bet it would look fab on you! I tend to use warm/ neutrals but I do like to wear blue here and there. It’s good to step out of your comfort zone.
    I need that setting spray in my life!

      Awww thanks Sam! I’m definitely going to try it, it’s also a good excuse to buy more eyeshadow palettes as I don’t have a blue shade in any of mine. The setting spray looks amazing and it’s a really good price as well.
