The on trend makeup looks for 2015 promise bold features mixed with natural beauty. It’s a fun time to jump into this summer’s trendy makeup looks and to experiment with something new.
Eyebrows are becoming bigger, bolder and more dramatic as the weather gets warmer, but carefree and with minimal structure. Blonds have stopped bleaching their brows to match their hair and are in fact going dark, some are going very dark. Full, lush eyebrows are brushed upwards to “fluff” them up and clear brow gel or mascara is brushed on to set them.
The dramatic eye is smoky and unrestricted, yet boldly subtle at the same time. Opt out of black and aim for earthy browns, coppers, dark taupe, terracotta or dusty gray-blue. These shades will add sex appeal, mystery and sultriness to your look without looking heavy or creepy. The cheeks and lips should be kept bare or nude to focus attention on the eyes.
Bronzers, tanners and glowing makeup products are back, but are being applied strategically and sparingly. Apply BB cream and apply just a light dusting on your cheeks, across the bridge of your nose and along your hairline near your forehead. Keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum with the no-make look and pull hair back into a loose ponytail for a soft summery appearance. You can also apply these products to your shoulders, shins, backs of arms, tops of hands and feet for an all-over “day at the beach” look.
Another one to put on your list for trendy makeup 2015 is the cheeks and lips combo. Start with a dewy complexion and apply pink shimmer gel or cream to your cheeks. Next, apply ruby, berry or bright pink lip stain to the very center of your lips. Top off the lip stain with sheer lip balm in a matching shade over your lips to moisturize and blend the color. Leave eyes bare, brush eyebrows up and out, and keep hair loose and flowing.
