Summer 2017: The Makeup Trends To Try Today

As the weather heats up, your makeup game needs to follow suit. Before it gets too sweaty to even consider wearing more than sunscreen, take advantage of the season’s sexiest makeup looks.  What better time than a summer wedding, date, or holiday weekend soirée to shake things up?

Here are our top five favorite makeup trends for summer 2017.

Dewy and luminous – never shiny – skin is a fine line to cross during warm months.  For a glow like Gigi Hadid’s, rely on products that are subtly illuminating – no need for major sparkle with this look.

TRY: First Aid beauty Facial Radiance Illuminating Moisturizer ($34), Guerlain Meteorites Base Perfecting Pearls ($74), IT Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Powder Illuminizer ($24)

The best way to think of this trend, as seen on Taylor Hill, is like an intentional racoon eye with color.  And of course, a bit more controlled! Feel free to smudge away…imperfection is par for the course.

TRY: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Defining Eye Shadow Wet/Dry ($25), Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes ($17)

We know, we know…you’ve seen this many times before. But when nude lips look as good as they do on Jennifer Lopez, why would you want this trend to go anywhere anytime soon? Good news is that it isn’t. To keep it on-trend, work with lip paints and lacquers for a finish that’ll stay long past happy hour.

TRY: Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick ($30),  Wander Beauty Carryon Lip and Cheek Gel ($22) in Madisoness, Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Collection Lipstick ($9)

Emily Ratajowksi’s metallic smoldering gaze is the ideal look to mimic for a big night out. If you’re feeling extra playful, add a metallic finish to your pout instead (another tres trendy seasonal look).

TRY: Pat McGrath Labs Dark Star 006 ($130), surratt beauty Prismatique Lipstick ($36)

An extra voluminous pout sans fillers like Natalie Portman’s is easy to achieve with the right nude lip liner and lip plumper.  Shh, don’t tell Kylie Jenner.

TRY: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat and Re-shape Lip Liner ($22) Bliss Fabulips Instant Lip Plumper ($22), E.L.F Lip Primer & Plumper ($3)
