7 Summer Beauty Predictions

April showers are over, May flowers are blooming, and summer will be here before you know it! We’re here to get you up-to-date on what we suspect will be the hottest makeup, hair, and fashion styles of the season. Starting with hair, and working our way down to toenails, we’re here to fill you in on this summer’s biggest beauty trends.

  • Hair: Loose curls. Natural waves. Messy buns. The key this summer is to let your hair do its own thing. For once, nobody will judge you for letting your hair air dry. Try using dry shampoo for a little lift, then add a little light texturizing product to the ends for that perfect “just got back from the beach” hair.
  • Face: It’s all about avoiding the lobster look this summer! You never know when you’re going to end up sitting outside for lunch or going on an impromptu weekend stroll. Best to be prepared by starting every morning with an SPF moisturizer. Not only is it important to keep your skin moisturized in the summer heat, but the SPF will help protect you against sunburn and unsightly wrinkles.
  • Eyes: Lighten up! Do away with the dark, smoky eye makeup and replace it with bright, cheery colors. Use a liquid liner and try only lining the top lid to achieve a lively summer look. When it comes to eye shadow, experiment with upbeat shades such as sunflower yellow.
  • Lips: Your lips should tell a story this summer. For a pretty pout, make a statement with bold colors like cherry red, hot pink or tangerine.
  • Skin: A healthy summer glow is always in style – emphasis on the healthy. Steer clear of tanning beds, which are extremely harmful to your skin and your overall health. Opt instead for self-tanners, which have truly come a long way in the past few years. The concern with self-tanner is that you’ll end up streaky or orange, but if you follow the instructions and pick a shade that is well-matched to your skin color you’ll end up with a beautiful, natural-looking tan.
  • Fashion: In case you haven’t noticed, this summer is going to be all about color, color, color. So stock up on unapologetic solids and bold stripes. It’s called color blocking and it’s going to be everywhere. No wallflowers allowed this summer. Go big or go home!
  • Feet: With sandal weather around the corner, you should probably start preparing your feet now. Head out to the spa for a pedicure and make sure they work on getting rid of those callouses you’ve built up over the winter. Over the next month or so, make sure you’re moisturizing to get your tootsies ready to come out of hiding! For polish, go for highlighter colors. Hot pink, neon orange, blinding yellow – choose the craziest color you can pull off and rock it!
