6 Summer Makeup Trends
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend: Soft, Fluffy Eyebrows
Let’s hear it for this summer’s eyebrow trend. Gone are the days of meticulously plucking stray hairs or spending precious time drawing on perfectly sculpted arches. “A lot of people are letting their brows grow out during this time,” celebrity makeup artist Shannon Pezzetta told POPSUGAR. “Just get some brow gel, instead of trying to fill them in.”
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend: Dewy, Pink Cheeks
Summer’s “It” product: cream blush. Move your powdered formulas to the back of your makeup vanity, and make room for dewy, cream, or gel-like textures. Pezzetta said blush is the easiest way to add a flush of color to your complexion, even if it’s just for a walk around the block.
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend: Fox Eyes
You know that fox-eye trend that’s all over Instagram? Yeah, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, according to celebrity and editorial makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes. We have celebrities like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, as well as TikTok, to thank for this one.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the buzzy trend, it entails shaving off the outer end of the eyebrow and drawing it back on at a straighter angle toward the temple to create the illusion of “fox-like” eyes.
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend: Colored Mascara
Trade your traditional black and brown formulas for a fun, bright color of mascara this summer. Nothing makes your eyes pop like a coat of blue or pastel on your eyelashes. Pezzetta said this is a quick and easy way to add color to your look without breaking out the eye shadow or liner.
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend:
Bold, Single-Colored Eye Shadow
Are you sensing a theme here? The makeup this summer is all about getting the most out of the fewest number of products. Hughes predicted, “Bold pops of color on the eye with one single color on the lids.” Get high-color payoff by swiping on a powder eye-shadow formula with your finger tip or opting for a creamy liquid eye shadow for a saturated color.
Summer 2020 Makeup Trend: Bright Eyeliner
If you’re up for the challenge, give bright eyeliner a try. (Now is the time to practice, right?) Pezzetta said blue eyeliner paired with minimal makeup brings all of the attention to the eyes.
