When it comes to beauty I normally keep things very tame. Same makeup, skincare and hair care every day. If you know me you know I have a hard time wearing colors as I tend to stick to neutrals – just seems more practical in my opinion. But over the past few months color has taken over my Instagram feed and TikTok big time. Colorful nails, hair accessories, etc. are all the rage. While they are definitely in style I just can’t seem to hop on some of the trends that seem so “out there”. Not because I am afraid to wear a bright lip or anything of that sorts, but just because it doesn’t feel like myself. And when it comes to fashion or beauty, that is all I am trying to accomplish; feeling like myself.
I have been wanting to branch out of my normal neutral color palette in terms of beauty and still manage to feel comfortable with what I have on. If you are in the same boat, here are some beauty trends for you to try to step up your everyday looks.
Something that I have changed up the past few months is switching up the blush I use from day to day. Recently, Kylie Jenner has been using Dior Backstage’s Rosy Glow Blush, which comes in two super pigmented colors. Definitely a good summer look.
Nail art is extremely popular right now and I love it. But something I don’t love is worrying about is if my nails are going to match my outfit or not – which is why I want to try neutral nail art. Still part of the trend, but ensured to match everything you wear.
P.S. – I think the colorful nail art is popular in the summer, but we will be seeing more neutral nail art coming up in the fall.
Not eyeshadow; eyeliner. Liquid colorful eyeliner I think adds such a chic yet playful look to your makeup routine, and I really would like to try it myself. Chose the right color eyeliner for your eyes pop!
Hint: chose an eye liner that is complementary of your eye color.
Something I tend to skip in my everyday makeup is highlighter, which I shouldn’t because in my opinion it elevates your whole look. Especially in the summer – this is a must. To get the most glowy, dewy look go for a liquid highlighter like Becca Ignite Liquid Highlighter.
Knowing how to style an up-do is essential especially during these hot summer months. I have been wearing my hair in a ponytail constantly and trying to style it different just to switch things up. Again, not a large change but something slight to get me to try something new.
My up-do go-to’s: slicked back ponytail, claw clips, and pigtail braids.
This 2000’s trend is making a large comeback in the world of beauty. This is the easiest thing you could add to your makeup routine, as you don’t even need a brush to apply it. Shimmer eyeshadow is so forgiving, effortless and simple which is perfect to upgrade your everyday minimalist look.
Try the cult favorite Stila Shimmer Liquid Eyeshadow or if you want to get this look from Hailey Bieber, opt for the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Rose Palette.
