Summer Make-Up and Hair Trends

What makeup should you be buying, which hair tutorials should you be watching and what are the bare beauty necessities this year? Live Eco has rounded up some of the top make-up and hair trends for this summer:

Colourful Smokey Eyes

Few people don’t know what the ‘smokey eye’ look is and most of us have either tried it (even if it made us look like a racoon) or sport it on a daily basis. Whether you’re into a light smudge or full-blown smokey eyes, you’ll be glad to know that this trend will carry on well into the summer – but with a slight twist. The new way to wear smokey eyes is to move away from the dull greys, blacks and browns. Check out how Versace pulls off golden smokey eyes and watch this YouTube tutorial to perfect the look yourself.

Get into the greens

Emerald is the colour to invest in this summer. If the colour doesn’t work well with your hair and eyes, you can always ditch the emerald eyeliners and eye shadow and rather invest in some green nail polish.

The 20’s hairstyles

If you’re into the 20’s inspired bobs and Marcel weaves, then you’re going to be all the rage this season. This look is becoming increasingly popular among celebrities and models – and the best part is that it always looks classy. The bad news is that these hairstyles aren’t exactly low maintenance, so make sure you can handle the styling and blow-drying that might be required for your new do.

Go nude

Say goodbye to granny matte finishes and replace these items with dewy, glowing looks for summer. Instead of creating a velvety finish with matte mousse foundations, rather invest in light, tinted moisturiser and powder to achieve a more glowing finish.
