The Hottest Beauty Trends of Summer 2016

It’s the season of fresh. As summer approaches, we’re gearing up for three months of endless color, luminous skin, and even a few unexpected beauty twists. Here are the hottest trends of the moment, with a few of our favorite products to help you get the look.

Bold Lips814ec694965f13a39fe6eaccdb532130

 From Zac Posen to Anna Sui, runway models brightened up the catwalk with their bolder-than-bold lips. What better way to punctuate your look this summer than with a bright lip? It’s the perfect way to show off some color without overdoing the rest of your face. Try Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Exposed ($19.99) for a fresh pop of color.

Blue Lids

And rocking this raucous hue isn’t as tricky as you may think, especially if you opt for a product like the TIGI Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow in Lush ($19.99). In addition to a brilliant blue, it contains three other mineral-infused shades that create the perfect day or night looks.

Undone Hair059b2f2447d72d6c629ea3c12274903d

While “messy” isn’t the usual look we strive for, we couldn’t help but fall for the slightly unkempt looks shown at Tracy Reese and Marc Jacobs. Hair was casually mussed, completely unfussy, and barely styled. And anything that simplifies our beauty routines is a definite yay! Achieve the look with Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturizing Mist ($18.93). Just run it through wet hair to show off those enviable beach waves. It contains Dead Sea salts, which help lend hair that slightly undone, roughed up look.

Dewy Skin

The barely-there look is best achieved with a lightweight tinted moisturizer, the antithesis to your usual heavy foundation that may weigh your look down (and, let’s face it, sweat right off within minutes). bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream ($23.99) covers all the necessary bases: It provides just enough coverage to minimize flaws, contains SPF 30 to combat harmful UV rays, and feels light and silky against skin.

Shimmery Finish

A little shine never hurts – just as long as it’s not a slick of oil messing with your T-zone. Taking inspiration from the glittery complexions spotted at Baja East and Alice + Olivia, apply the vibrant Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Luster ($20.99) all over your face for an instantly perked up visage. You can use this product anywhere, from your cheekbones to your eyelids.
