We intently follow movie premieres and red carpets soaking in everything from who celebs are dating to what they’re wearing. Beauty and makeup trends are no exception. Seen everywhere from the runway to the red carpet to the streets, these trends are what’s hot for summer in beauty.
Electric Blue Eyeliner
Celebrity Spotting: Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Stone, Sophie Turner, and Taylor Swift
Why We Love It: Kat Von D’s bulletproof ink well eyeliner is the perfect companion to radiant summer skin. The early 2000s are making a strong return, with electric-colored eyeliners that are anything but dull. This smudge-proof liner is available in highly-pigmented shades, but blue is the shade that’s making the most waves and works on a variety of skin tones. Create a floating liner design or go for a classic cat eye updated in rich blue.
Celebrity Spotting: Lady Gaga, Kylie Jenner, Rihanna, and Lucy Hale
Why We Love It: Flashy and fashionable, magenta eye shadow is turning heads on every red carpet. Before you knock this throwback trend, experiment with Fenty Beauty’s ‘Killawatt’ foil freestyle highlighter. Pack the pigment lightly on your lid and in the corner of your eye and pair with a neutral lip—making it more 2019 than 1985.
Celebrity Spotting: Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, and Kendall Jenner
Why We Love It: From the catwalk to the Met Gala, statement lips came in a variety of powerful shades. Add a pop of color to your next look with a bright rose-colored lip. Pair this happy hue with dewy skin and long lashes to your “no makeup” makeup look and draw attention to your smile, make your teeth look whiter and your lips look fuller.
Celebrity Spotting: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Lilly Allen
Why We Love It: Bold makeup is having a serious moment and the same goes for nails. Why settle for one color when you can sport an entire rainbow on your fingertips? Let Vanity Projects doll up your digits for the summer in the arguably the season’s top trend—bright, rainbow hues.
Celebrity Spotting: Issa Rae, Priyanka Chopra, Katharine Langford, and Rita Ora
Why We Love It: Scintillate and stun by wearing Tarte’s ‘Treasure Pot’ glitter gel on your lids before a night out. Maybe not so much for a day at the office, but perfect for summer festivals or carefree nights during your summer getaway where anything goes—even glitter.
