Hot Summer Beauty Trends

The heat is on and so is the humidity, making it a challenge to keep your hair and makeup intact. However, that’s no reason not to try this summer’s hottest beauty trends.

Luckily they are low maintenance, fresh and will keep you looking fabulous all season long.

Mess-Free Makeup

If you’re still trying to figure out how to contour your face, you can put down your makeup brushes, because that trend has come and gone. Non-touring is the new buzzword this summer and it doesn’t require you to watch YouTube how-to videos.

Non-touring is all about giving skin a fresh, dewy, glowing look, and in just three simple steps you’ll be ready to face the day. First, prime the skin, then use a tinted moisturizer, then add the glow. The key to this look is achieving naturally sculpted shine with a highlighter; Marc Jacobs Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator is our top pick. This universally flattering shade adds the perfect amount sheen that illuminates the face.

Haute Hair

When it’s sweltering outside, blow-drying your hair is often the last thing you want to do. Luckily there are plenty of heat-free styles to keep you looking polished and cool. One effortless style that is easy-to-achieve is beachy waves with natural texture. Simply let hair air dry and spray a sea salt spray on strands and twist with fingers or scrunch.

Braids are having a moment and it’s easy to understand why, as they can be worn so many different ways. From a braided topknot to a cascading Carousel waterfall braid, you can’t go wrong. Take cue from Celine’s Spring/Summer runway show, where models wore a slicked back braided pony tail – it doesn't get more effortless or chic than that.


Nailed It

Everyone knows rocking bright colors is a must in the summertime, and this season that also holds true in the form of nail polish. Christian Louboutin Beauty delivers these vibrant, bold shades in a spectrum hues. Go for bold with Wherever, a deep marine blue or Jazzy Doll, a juicy red with a hint of pink.
