Makeup trends for summer 2014
Naturally, with the summer months fast approaching, most of us will be reaching for the bronzer this spring to get our warm glow off to a healthy start. You can work the magic just like a catwalk diva using Clinique’s fabulous range of lightweight products. Summer trends are all about illumination, and their eye shadow colours will combine beautifully with your shimmering skin. Draw on a couple of cute freckles for a truly sun-kissed in Ibiza look.
Clinique are known for their quad eye makeup compacts and these will be a big thing amongst the fashion elite over the coming season. They can be adapted for a number of themes, wash them across your eyes for daytime glamour, or apply in deeper azures and purples for a more bohemian vibe. Don’t be afraid to experiment with blue, but use it in a high definition flash rather than a gentle sweep. However, if blocks of colour are not your thing but you’d still like to be part of it, try out a topping of gold or silver glitter. It will add a dewy luminescence to your delicate lid areas, but also break up the harsher effects of dark hues.
However you work it, don’t forget the liner. The new makeup trends 2014 are hot on smudged kohl and slick cat’s eye style flicks. The rules are simple; it must be black and there must be plenty of it. Yves Saint Laurent has liners to dazzle even the most experienced starlet, with products so excessive and lustrous, that you’ll be able to skip the mascara without a second thought. This look works well with white eye shadow, offering a fresh and cool springtime sensation.
If you love showing off your cupids bow, this spring and summer will bring plenty of chances to display your A-list style lips. With your dramatic eyes, you can choose from a soft berry coloured romantic lip palette or go for gold in stunning orange. If you’re rocking a pair of statement eyes, bare lips are always acceptable – a slick of neutral or peach gloss is perfect for subtly enhancing your pout.
Makeup trends can change hugely between collections, so if you find it difficult to settle on just one or two shades, be creative by choosing a number of different colours. You can mix up even more tones by blending the products on the back of your hand before applying them.
