As the mercury soars high and the unbearable heat makes you want to chill at the beach. We bring to you a bagful of blissful tips. Do take a quick look at the latest summer trends which scream nothing but “perfection”. There’s a lot to be excited about- cool ponytails, graphic eye liner, nail art and the majority of beauty trends to pull off easily.
Blend it like Primer
It’s our favorite summer staple. Before you apply the base directly, apply an even coat of primer (depending on your skin type) over your eyelids and lips. It helps to highlight the hues of eye shadow and lip color.
Tip: Moisturize your skin well before to let your makeup last long.
Seal it Matte
While bold lipstick is nothing new and we love the matte look, personifying the old world charm (since our moms used to too) velvety texture is quite a recurring theme on the runaway. It will help you re-create the magic on the streets too; all you need is a smile to flaunt it.
Tip: Post lipstick application, gently press a tissue on your lips and apply some powder to ensure a long color stay and avoid lipstick stains.
A little pop of color never hurt anyone and so does a great fun-flick of color on the top lash line. But girls, it’s time to play up the bottom lash line. Pastels work best for dusky skin tones while sharp contrasts highlight the drama for fairer or wheatish tones.
Tip: Use your regular kajal/eye pencil for bottom lash line to let your eyes do the talking.
We’re totally crushing on these 80’s flattering trend. What better way to hide your flyaways and make a statement as your hair breathe easy in a messy topknot. Headbands look best with braids, ponytails or buns. So, get your party shoes on and sport a headband to your Friday soiree.
Tip: Slide your hair back into a messy bun and style the knotted headband in the front.
Nothing spells oh-so-cool other than a splash of aqua. Delicate strokes of blue hues on the upper eye lid will surely let you steal the spotlight. As they say, you see the eye shadow before you see the eye. We are already obsessed with accentuating bright blues, are you up for it yet?
Tip: Girls with blue eyes should avoid going for blue tones as eye shadow.
The scorching sun not only ceases the charm and beauty but also take away the much-needed moisture. Sport a bare makeup look with subtle strokes of concealer to hide away the unwanted spots or marks. Let your skin breathe and flaunt your natural skin.
Tip: Go nude this summer with nude lipcolor and apply a little as a blush for an extra glow.
Up your Braid Game
With the comeback of braids this season, we can’t stop but heart them. From runway to streets, braids are quite a rage amongst the women clan. Pulling French braids at the crown of the head is the most popular hairdo just like our very favourite Sonam Kapoor pulled it off recently.
Tip: Leave your bangs free for a softer feel
