Despite the title of this column “Lipgloss & Lace,” I realized the other day that I’ve not written very much about makeup!
This past weekend, I went to The Makeup Show in Chicago, modeled, shopped, and learned from some experts! One of the seminars I attended was on upcoming makeup trends, so I thought I’d share!
One of the big trends for Summer is a bold lip! It has been matte for a while, but it’s moving back to glossy, which is exciting to me, because I think it’s more flattering!
A second trend is winged out eyeliner, taken to the extreme! Think bold colors, or longer, thicker or more elaborate wings. The sky is the limit!
The final trend is for thick brows. Make the most of what you have by combing yours straight up and using product to fill in any sparse parts. I recommend Stila’s waterproof brow liner to do just that!
Of course you don’t have to try all of the trends, and I sure wouldn’t recommend trying them all at once, but if you feel inspired, this is what’s hot this season!
