Here Comes The Sun: These Summer Makeup Trends Worn By Celebs Need To Be On Your To-Do List


Out with the old, in with the new you say? Well, we couldn’t agree with you more. A new season brings about new trends, so here we are infusing our makeup kits and hitherto spring-summer avatars with some bold splashes of colours, reworking some old tricks in the book and side-stepping some entirely. We’re talking about fresh skin, bold colours in shadows, lipsticks, upgrading the classic flick and then some. Best of all, these makeup trends were not only runway approved but we’ve also got a few celebs backing us up as they embraced these styles wholeheartedly. Here’s taking a look at some of the most trend-savvy celebs sporting Spring-Summer’18’s finest looks.

Fishtail Eyeliner

Your liner is about to take a little detour. The fishtail liner is fresh and easy enough for even a makeup novice to attempt. Spotted recently on Alicia Vikander at the premium of her film Tomb Raider, you too can accessorise your flick with a bold colour at the outer corner of the eyes just like the actress.

Pink Blush & Lipstick
Pink Blush And Lipstick

Mostly worn by Priyanka Chopra, the trend was recently seen on Kerry Washington. This look was made for spring. Not only does the dependency on blush alone wipe out the need for heavy contouring, but it also makes it appear flushed and fresh. Accompanied by equally pink/fuchsia lips, this look overall gives your face a younger appearance.

Gun-Metal Eyes

The traditional smoky eye veers towards the silver side with the addition of shimmer eyeshadow on the top. Most recently worn by Jennifer Lawrence, if you’re looking to recreate the same, just follow our gun-metal eye tutorial. Keep in mind that this look is best worn with pared-down lips.

Here's how you can get the look!

Bright Eye Makeup

If you’re looking for a replacement for black, then bright hues are a good way to go--- we're talking about bright blues, purples, pinks. If you’re daring enough you can even swipe on some orange on your eyelids. Just read our lookbook on bright eye makeup if you’re looking for a place to start.

Purple Lipstick

Ultra-violet is most definitely a fun colour to play around with. The key to wearing this hue is to keep the rest of your look subtle – glowing skin and a neutral lip or eye, depending on whether you're opting for a purple lipstick or eyeshadow.
