Four Celebrity Beauty Trends For Summer

By Maria Barillaro, guest blogger

When it comes to rocking the latest trends, we can always turn to the red carpet for inspiration. Keep reading to find out which can’t-miss beauty looks some of our fave A-listers have been sporting lately.


1. Bold Eyeshadow

Sweetheart Ginnifer Goodwin has won us over this summer. Aside from her trendy shorn hair, she’s recently been spotted with ultra-flashy lids. From the runway to the red carpet, flashy eyeshadows like blue, green, orange, pink, and yellow (just to name a few) are all the rage for the upcoming season and will carry you well into the fall. To nail this look, opt for one colour and apply it to the lower lid and crease, like Ginnifer.

2. Pink Lips

From neons to fuchsia, pink is the lip colour of the summer. Rock this trend with more understated eye makeup like Kelly Osbourne, for a look that really pops. Just remember not to pair this trend with Ginnifer Goodwin’s bright eyeshadow look. Less is more.

3. Thick Eyebrows

Thin brows are out and with any luck, they won’t be back any time soon. In recent months, Jennifer Lopez has made more red carpet appearances than ever and is one of our favourite of-the-moment style icons. Go for the same elegant and polished look as this celeb by opting for thicker, well-coiffed brows. For added emphasis, use an eyebrow pencil to enhance to the shape and colour of your brows.

4. Natural Complexion with a Subtle Shimmer

At Cannes Doutzen Kroes reminded us why no matter what the season, the natural look never goes out of style. The key to achieving this look without appearing unfinished is to even out your complexion with foundation, accent the cheeks with a touch of shimmering blush that’s as close to your natural rouge as possible and finish off with a natural-looking lip colour. Add a touch of mascara to the mix and you’re set.
