Most of us can recognize doing the makeup routine on autopilot. A bit of mascara, concealer under the eyes and – on a good day – something to plump the lips. And for those still working from home, it might be one of the routines that’s become completely forgotten. But makeup can really be the best pick up when you’re feeling down. While for some people a boring routine is an issue of time. For others, it’s an issue of finding the makeup world a little daunting. But actually it’s pretty accessible once you get the hang of it. When it comes to makeup; practice makes perfect. So prepare yourself to devote more time in front of the mirror before you get it right. Here’s three of the season’s makeup trends worth trying – no matter your level.
The glossy trend is showing no signs of slowing down this season. With both the Instagram explorer page and Fashion Week runways being filled with people sporting the cool look. If you haven’t tried it out yet, we recommend keeping it clean, but glossy. Apply a bit of eyeshadow in a neutral color to your lids and coat it with a clear-colored lip gloss. Apply on your lips, and even a bit on the cheeks, if you’re feeling courageous. Gloss is an ideal makeup look for summertime as it falls in line perfectly with the bareface aesthetic favored this time a year. And the best thing is how easy it is to make. Find your preferred lip gloss and you have all you need.
If there was ever a time to practice applying the perfect eyeliner, it’s now. Eyeliner in various shapes and colors have seen a rise in beauty content lately. And this season, especially the white eyeliner is set for a major comeback. This is good news for everyone who tends to look a bit sleepy when getting up in the morning. White eyeliner not only makes your eyes seem bigger, it also makes them look more awake. The simple look with a winged white eyeliner presents a refreshed, modern approach to the classic cat eyes. But there are countless ways of doing an eyeliner, so take advantage of the room to play and get creative.
If you’re short on time then focus on the lips. A bold lip takes a second to do but makes a big impact. Especially if you keep a clean face to allow the statement lip to stand out and speak for itself. Don't forget to apply lip balm to make sure your lips are moist. Then apply your lipstick and press a clean finger along your lip line, if you wish to soften it up. Et voilà. This season, it’s particularly berry-colored lips that are at the top of the chart. Everything from red to plum to coral. There is a myriad of nuances under the berry umbrella, but the golden rule is to think of your skin tone, when you come to picking your specific berry. Matching the color with your tone and undertone definitely provide the best outcome, when you want your lips in focus.
