Not sure where to start? We’re here to help with summer 2020’s biggest beauty trends.
2020 might not have been all you expected so far, but that’s all the more reason to embrace this season’s beauty trends. Remember that old saying “fake it till you make it?” If you’re feeling down, brightening up your lips, eyes, nails, or all the above can be an awesome pick-me-up that proves that beauty can go way more than skin deep. We share 6 latest beauty trends that you need to know.
1. Be-Jewelled, Be Fabulous
Not only is Euphoria makeup not going away, it’s getting bigger. Gems are the new black, and there’s nowhere that you can’t wear them.
The most popular way to wear gems right now is on and around your eyes.
You can go for subtle and just stick one adhesive rhinestone in the corner of each eye; break out the lash glue and attach rhinestones to your lashes; or go all-out with jewel-encrusted eyelids and glitter liner.
There is currently no such thing as too much jewel.
2. Bright Eyes
Your eyes are a stand-out feature, so it’s time to have some fun and make sure that everyone gives you a second look.
Neon eyeshadow is still going strong, but we’re applying it with a bit more care nowadays. Instead of sweeping it over the entire eyelid, wear a touch in the inside corners of your eyes to attract attention everywhere.
You can line your eyes with neon, or use your neon liner for the season’s hottest eye makeup trend: the floating crease.
This is when you draw your line somewhere just above the crease, instead of slavishly following the edge of your eyelid. It’s unexpected; it’s eye-catching; and it might just reflect the fact that we’ve had enough of following the rules.
Colored mascaras are heavily in right now. If you’re feeling uncertain, you can dip your toe in the water by trying out a dark green or deep blue, but pinks, teals, and purples are all trending mascara shades.
Want to take eye makeup to the next level? This could be the perfect opportunity to try the hottest eye makeup look: animal print eye shadow.
Yeah, it’s time-consuming, but did you have anything better to do right now?
3. Nail It
Truth: there’s no faster pick-me-up than a manicure.
Of course, no one’s been able to get to the salon for the past several weeks, but if you let that stop you from doing your nails then you’re not really trying.
Here are some of the top nail looks for 2020:
- The new French mani has ultra-thin tips, and makes everything more fun by switching out colors in the tips. And oh yeah, you can add jewels to your mani as well.
- Stick on nail art is still riding high, because it’s the best way to get professional-looking nails when you have to do it yourself.
- Rainbow nails are cheering up everyone in the face of 2020’s bad news.
4. Skincare Matters
Don’t start thinking that we’ve overlooked skincare. It matters more than ever today, now that we’re all focusing on our health and paying attention to the impact of our environment.
We’re all on the lookout for the best SPF skincare products, moisturisers, and tinted creams, because we know that gorgeous skin can’t just be painted on.
One of the newest trends is for personalized skincare products, so that you can find the perfect face masks, hydrating creams, and rejuvenating ointments for every skin type. Gone is one-size-fits-all beauty; today, you can find skincare products that are developed especially for your skin tone and color, race, age, and more.
5. Think Pink!
You’re not the only one who’s been experimenting with hair dyes.
Pink is the top pick right now, especially pale pink. Taylor Swift played around with pink and blue streaks; Julianne Hough got so many likes for her light pink ombre look; and Teddi Mellencamp went for rose gold.
6. Embrace Every Body
Inclusive beauty is our favorite trend over the last couple of years, and it’s stronger than ever this summer.
There’s nothing more attractive than confidence.
Hiding your body beneath a flowing sarong isn’t cool. Instead, women (and men) are taking pride in their body.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t invest in making your body as healthy, strong, and attractive as possible, though. You definitely should.
We’re using products designed for people of every age, body shape, and size to nurture our bodies and naturally reshape them into the best possible version they can be, without beating ourselves up for not looking like a supermodel.
Everyone gets to take joy in stepping out in a swimsuit or skimpy summer dress this season, not just the Kim Kardashians of this world. .
The hottest trends are waiting for you this summer, across makeup, skincare, nails, and body confidence. We’re having more fun and experimenting even more with new colors and styles. What’s your next look going to be?
