While we love seeing a great outfit stomp down the runway during fashion week, what we really keep our eyes on are the makeup trends. For Spring and Summer 2019 we were particularly drawn to the fresh-faced looks that were skin-focused and glowy. These are four of our favorite makeup trends and how to achieve them yourself!
A bold, long-wearing liquid lip is a great option for the Fall and Winter months, but we love that things seem to be lightening up for Spring and Summer with the focus shifting to ultra-glossy lips. Kevyn Aucoin's new Glass Glow Lip coats lips with the ultimate three-dimensional reflective glaze. A slightly more subtle option, Smashbox Gloss Angeles (in-store only) is your shortcut to nourished, fuller-looking lips. For a high-performance, multi-dimensional shine and color, go with Stila’s Beauty Boss Lip Gloss.
Skin that looks like it's glowing from the inside-out isn't new, but the ways you can achieve the look are. Go subtle by boosting your natural radiance with rosehip-infused Brightening CC Powder from By Terry. It features Optical Glow technology to help blur imperfections, even out the skin tone, intensify skin radiance, neutralise redness and create a flawless finish. What's not to love? If it's a more blinding glow you're after, opt for Kevyn Aucoin's Glass Glow Face. It's a universal, lightweight, unique formula that creates youthful-looking, well-hydrated skin, with an almost glass-like complexion.
Bright eyes make you look awake, alert and youthful and Surratt's new Inner Light Baton is the all-in-one brightening tool that we can't put down. It's a redness-neutralizing waterline liner on one side with a with a corresponding shimmering powder to further brighten your inner-eye corners, brow bone, or lash line o the other. Conceal and color correct dark circles with Smashbox's new long-wearing Studio Skin Flawless 24 hour concealer (in-store only). There's definitely a reason it's for more than 4.5 out of 5 stars with more than 700 reviews. While By Terry's Touche Velouteé brightening concealer isn't new for 2019 it's absolutely got what it takes to achieve that 2019 bright eye look. It's reflective compounds illuminate the eye area for fresh faced beauty.
If the foundation of a bright, fresh face for Spring and Summer is a beautiful complexion, then work in products that do double duty. These days, powders that not only set, bronze, highlight or blush, but also blur imperfections are well within reach. Jouer's Soft Focus Powders are made of a super silky formula that extends makeup wear, reduces shine, and blurs imperfections for an exquisite, photo-ready, real skin finish. Kevyn Aucoin's Neo Bronzers are versatile three-in-one palettes with a highlighter, blush, and bronzer all in one smooth gradient finish. The finely milled, light-diffusing pigments enhance and perfect the skin.
