Effortless Summer Makeup


July 14, 2017

It's Summer Time and we have a whole new approach to makeup. The weather is warmer, the sun is out (sometimes) and we don't have as much time on our hands - yet we still want that effortless summer glow.

Here is our stunning inspiration for Summer - Gigi Hadid! Her makeup here was done by Patrick Ta.

Here are our keys products to ensure we look summer ready in a jiffy:

Tan

Summer wouldn't be summer without a tan, now if you were not lucky enough to get away yet Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Dark will make it look like you have - renowned for being the world's most natural looking tan - we can totally vouch for that statement! Easy to apply, dries quickly, lasts up to 10 days and moisturises while applying! This is a summer essential for us here at the TRND offices.

Shimmer Shadows

During the summer we are all about shimmer shadows, something pretty to reflect the light and draw attention to your eyes! We love The Hussle Palette from Suva Beauty and tend to just pick one colour, depending on our mood, and swipe it with our finger across our lid. With these 4 stunning shades, you'll have a shade for every occasion.

Highlight

Highlight in the summer is essential - but pull it back a bit, go for golden tones rather than cool tones. The golden tones will compliment that beautiful tan you've already applied. Our favourite highlighters right now are the LA Girl Strobing Powders, either the shade 100 Watt or 110 Watt will give a beautiful golden glow!

Lashes: 

Lashes instantly glam you up, again our advice, pull back. Don't go for huge heavy glam lashes, keep it wispy and pretty. The Morphe Premium Lashes are a staple, they can be worn up to 6 times and offer the most beautiful, flattering styles. They are super lightweight you won't even know they are on!
