In summer, make up can go two ways. On the one hand, it’s all about lazy, natural looks that don’t require much effort; on the other, summer is a time to try bold, colourful looks that would never pass muster in winter. Whichever way you prefer to go, here are a few makeup trends to try for summer 2019.

Pastel eyes

If you thought floral-hued eyeshadows had been left in the early naughties, think again. Pastel eye colours are having a moment this season, so break out your rainbow best – pinks, greens, blues and oranges will be spotted on eyelids everywhere this summer.

Clean skin

Forget about layering on the foundation – it’ll just melt off in all this heat. Instead, summer 2019 is all about fresh, glowing skin. So ramp up your skincare routine so you can go (almost) au natural. Just remember to load up on sunscreen, and if you must, just dab a spot of primer or conceal where you really need it.

Bold brows

The thin brows of the 90s can stay there. Recent years have seen the resurgence of big, bushy brows, but for summer 2019, they take on a sophisticated, grown-up edge. Book an appointment to get your brows professionally shaped – remember to keep them nice and thick, though – then use a touch of eyebrow powder and clear mascara to hold them in check.

Red, red lips

Classic, vampy red lips will never go out of style, and this season, a touch of fire to your kisser will have you firmly on trend. The trend is being interpreted in many ways, from bold-hued glosses to creamy burgundies and matte berry stains, so find a look that suits you and wear it with pride.

Bronzer baby

Contouring had its moment, but bronzer’s back in a big way to make your summer makeup routine easy. Skip the blush and highlighter and just sweep a light touch of bronzer of your cheekbones to give you that I’m-just-back-from-vacation glow and colour.
