Prepare Your Style for Summer Fun

Are you ready for summer? At STYLU, we’re always excited to find the newest makeup trends for the upcoming season. Check out our tips on how to prepare your style for summer fun.

Must-have warm weather products

What is the one problem you have most with wearing makeup once the weather heats up? It can melt down your face! But we have the perfect warm weather makeup products to ensure that you look great no matter how hot it gets.

First, start your routine with a primer. We love Smashbox Photo Finish Primer because it goes on smooth, evens out skin tone, and helps your makeup to stay in place even if you have very oily skin.

The next thing to consider is what type of blush works best in the heat. Cream blushes, like the fabulous Butter London Cheeky Crème Blush in Naughty Biscuit, go on smooth and are less likely to wear off when you sweat. That’s because they blend into your skin, unlike powder blushes that sit more on the surface and are easily removed by moisture. If you’re on a budget—or just trying to save more money for summer fun—NYX also makes an easy-to-apply cream blush. Try the shade Glow for cheekbones that look touched by sun.

Summer lip trends

Summer is a time for bright, fun shades. It’s when you throw off the more somber tones of winter. And lipstick is one of the best ways to show your individuality. So many shades are available, and they are an easy way to quickly change your whole look. Here are our top suggestions for making a bold statement at the beach or hanging out at a barbecue.

Of course, when you’re in a hurry clear or lightly tinted lip gloss is always appropriate for a breezy summer look. The new trend is high-shine “lipglass” that gives the lips a glass-like appearance, like this one in Angel by MAC.

What’s new for makeup

You have so many trend options when it comes to 2016 spring and summer makeup. It’s really a great time to find your own unique look. Here is a final suggestion about an upcoming makeup trend to try.

Aquatic blue eye colors, like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Bright Iridescent Teal, make a pretty statement against any skin tone and are a wonderful casual look during your summer vacation. You can also try NYX Color Mascara in Blue Dream for bright, eye-catching lashes.
