Having a classic beauty look is key for getting out the door quickly. But when you want to try something new, switch up your look, or have a big event that you want to go full-on glam with, trying a risky yet wearable beauty trend can check off all the boxes. Here are 5 of our favorite daring beauty trends to have fun with this summer.
GLITTER AND SHIMMER
If you tend to go on the natural side when it comes to your makeup look, try a splash or shimmer or even glitter. Sparkly eyeshadow, glitter lip gloss or even a strong cheekbone highlight will kick your makeup up a notch and be on trend. Use an ultra bright makeup mirror when applying any kind of heavy shimmer or glitter on your face, so you can clean up the areas that you don’t want to shine.
If hats aren’t your thing, try a big headband or fun hair clips. Switching up your hair accessories beyond the basic bobby pins is the quickest and least commitment change to your look (no hair cutting required).
STANDOUT NAIL ART
Ditch the beige nails for bold fingertips this summer. Whether you’re doing a neon pink nail polish or gemstone nail art, more is more in the nail department. This is especially fun for summer celebrations and holidays where you have an excuse to get extra festive. A floor standing lighted magnifier lets easily you see the close-up details of your manicure.
FRENCH RED LIP
The French are known for their statement red lip but done so in an effortless way. Instead of your basic red lipstick and lipliner application technique, try the French red lip which is simply applying a generous layer of lipstick then push in the edges of your lip with your finger to create an imperfect lip line. This soft edge, blurred effect is what makes French red lips both chic and effortless at the same time. To make sure you don’t go overboard, use a lighted magnifying mirror that gives a zoomed in view.
Natural brows that aren’t over-tweezed have been an on-going trend for the last few years. For this summer, the bigger the brow the better. If you hate the idea of wearing a ton of makeup during the hot weather, focus on crafting a big and bold brow so you can keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum.
