Brows have definitely become a point of importance when it comes to cosmetics in recent years. A strong defining brow can truly make your entire makeup look. Before, it was all about having a very sculpted and defined eyebrow, but recently, we have been seeing a more “natural” and “untamed” brow look on the runways this season. Eyebrows are gently filled in with a light pencil, and brushed upwards with a brow brush. To keep them groomed, a bit of brow gel goes a long way.

Some great products to achieve this look:

-The Glossier: Boy Brow

-The Anastasia Beverly Hills: Tinted Brow Gel

-The Maybelline: Brow Precise

– The Too Faced: Brow Quickie


Trend Four: Tint It

For some, lipstick or gloss can feel a bit heavy for summer makeup, especially if you live in a warm or humid place. The perfect solution is using a light lip tint. Lip tints stain your lips for a few hours, giving you a light weight feel, and pretty much little to no rub-off. For the perfect look, top it off with your favorite lip balm and you are all set to go! Many lip tints are also usable on your cheeks, making it the perfect makeup to touch up on the go, so it’s a win win. 

Some great products to achieve this look:

– The Frank Body: Cherry Bomb Lip and Cheek Tint

– The Nature Republic: Triple Mousse Tint

– The Sephora Collection: Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick

– The e.l.f. Cosmetics: Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain

Trend Five: Gilded in Gold

It will also make you look absolutely radiant in photographs, giving you serious credit on Instagram!
