Top 5: Beauty Trends in Summer 2019By Angelica Malin
Beauty trends come and go with the seasons. Whilst some trends fade away like a fallen leaf, others transcend over time. When the warm weather hits you have more opportunities to trial your style. As it turns out, this year’s summer trends enhance your look without putting in as much effort – before or after. Here are five beauty treatments trending this summer.
Laser Hair Removal
Although you should avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight for several weeks prior to your treatment, rumors about not having laser hair removal in the summer is a myth. The only cardinal rule is that you should avoid the sun for a few weeks because untanned skin yields better results and avoids permanent damage to your skin.
Despite being subjected to a sun-free fortnight, laser skin treatment is trending this summer simply because it’s less painful than waxing and more convenient than shaving. As a matter of fact, laser skin treatment is most likely to become the only way for girls to shed their threads. It involves less injury to the skin.
Summertime is the best time of the year for your beauty to shine and you can give your radiance a lift by ditching the tired matte in favour of a cream luminzer that produces a natural gleam.
To enhance your natural glow, forget full-coverage foundation and powder highlights and invest in tinted moisturizer and makeup that double up as skincare products instead.
The mantra ‘bold is beautiful’ is the saying of the season this summer as models and celebrities ignore the neutral pallete and make their eyes pop with dashing neon color.
The likes of Camila Coelho, Shailene Woodley and Kristen Stewart have all be spotted sporting neon whilst Lady Gaga is on a mission to reinvigorate pink eye shadow.
Professional make-up artists recommend testing the water with a bold liner and strong, colorful mascara. All being well, you can then turn it up a notch and go full neon. It’s the fun new shade that is guaranteed to grab attention.
Blunt Bob Hairstyle
When the temperature is cranked up, it’s time to shorten the locks and allow your face to breathe. Consequently, the blunt bob is making a comeback for the first time since the 1970’s.
A-listers such as Karlie Kloss and Kendall Jenner have both opted for shorter locks this summer. What makes the blunt bob the stand out hairstyle of the season is the precise, sharp finish mid-way between the ears and the nape of the neck. It’s a cut that suits any shape of face whilst adding an extra layer to soft and thin hair.
If you’re not ready to cut your long locks just yet, the alternative option to keep cool is to fashion a top knot. Whilst throwing your hair into a bun is generally a giveaway sign that you’ve not washed your hair for three days, catwalk models are shifting the paradigm – a swift undoing of the top knot and sudden-flowing hair is the cool look of the summer.
The trick to tying a summer top knot is known as the ‘imperfectly perfect’ bun. Tie your hair into a ponytail and give it a twist but leave the ends loose. It’s the straddles that give this year’s top knot that cool, edgy look.
Whatever styles you choose to sport this summer, wear them with confidence. If you can’t enjoy the summer, what time of year can you get your kicks? So, don’t waste too much time pimping yourself up, adopt these beauty trends and save more time for having fun.
