The Top 5 Makeup Trends | Spring/Summer 2016

Top 5 Makeup Trends for Spring/Summer 2016

I know, I know!!  We are still in January and I’m already into all the Spring/Summer makeup trends bandwagon. Just reading some snippets about new collections or just looking at pictures form new launches approaching makes me stamp impatiently. I live in winter wonderland and what can I say, I cannot wait for it to be over. But, in 2016, new trends is maybe an overstatement…Let’s face it, everything as been done/tried in the makeup world – we’ve seen it all and looking back at some popular trends, I will just say that some were questionable (dark lip liner and pale nude lips anyone? Or the infamous super white eyelids?)!!!

♥ The 5 top trends for Spring/Summer 2016 ♥

… that I will follow !


 

♥ Glowing Skin ♥

Happy dance right there since I hate a full coverage, cakey type foundation!! Matte is out and welcome luminous finishes. I always been a fan of my skin peaking through even if I obviously have my share of imperfections (acne scars, discoloration & wrinkles to name a few). Since Complexions should look light, delicate and even, a good skincare regimen will be a must to achieve the perfect canvas.

 

There is the 4 foundations that I want to try…

(Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation, YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint, L’Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion, Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation)

♥ Strobing (aka Highlight) ♥

 

 

Nothing new here you will say but « au contraire »! As much as contouring will still be actual, it will be way more subtle (Instagram coutouring is so Out! Thinking about it, was it ever In on a day to day basis – The answer is NO!!!). Since makeup artists all favor adjectives like “bare”, “dewy”, “glowing”, “soft”, “natural” and “real-looking” to describe the trend for skin in 2016, it’s safe to say that highlighting our face (not just the higher parts of our cheekbones) will be huge.

 

My 2 favorite products being …

 

(Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder & Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Compact Powder)

 

♥ Soft Eye looks ♥

Simple eye makeup will be a must this spring; beige or light greys paired with an added pop of colour, mostly in the pinkish/coralish range. It has been described as a “sweeter”, softer trend. Winged eyeliner are out and it will be replace by a romantic eye makeup paired with a ton of mascara or falsies.

Wishful thinking 🙊…

Too Faced Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette 2016

(The Upcoming – Too Faced Sweat Peach)

♥ Glosses & Sheer Lipsticks ♥

All the matte liquid lipstick that was so HOT for fall/winter 2015 will be replace with soft and super shiny lips (thank you, thank you, thank you)!!! Bold matte lips never worked for me so I welcome this trend with open arms (or should I say open lips 💋). Call me old fashion, but I’m a glossy kind of girl.

 

My top 3 best formulas are …

 

(Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss, Nars Lip Gloss & Buxom Full-on Lip Polish)

 

♥ Define Brows and Define Cheeks ♥

As much as «soft» is a key word for spring/summer, it may not characterize the trends for our brows (trend or not, I will ALWAYS define my brows)! They should still make a statement (as long as you know what you are doing – pratice makes perfect believe me). For our cheeks, we should all dust off our bright pink & orange/coral blushes since they will be super trendy. To sum up, the main focus will be on the face & the cheeks.

My top 4 blush picks …

(Nars Blush in Torrid, Becca Mineral Blush in Songbird,Buxom True Hue Blush in Temptation & Urban Decay Arfter Glow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Quickie)

 

So tempting (for Blondes that is) …

(UD X Gwen Stefani Brow Box)

I’m such a happy camper right now. I’m already following these trends so coming spring, I will be an expert! Until then, maybe my makeup look will be a little bizarre for someone who desperately wants to hit pan on its winter products 😉  (Bahahaha)

Do you follow trends or like me, you are into the ones that fit your personality!!!

  1. Loving most of these trends. I love the glowing skin look with the soft eyes. Strobing is a bit much for me, but a little highlight does wonders for your look 🙂

      1. OMG I’ve been debating that one forever! I’ve had some requests to compare one of the Viseart matte palettes to the one from KVD. On the one hand, I think the warm matte would be a better comparison…. but I don’t want the warm matte, I want the cool matte! They look so pretty!

      2. I don’t want the Neutral Matte one because I have & love the KVD !!! It would be a great but expensive comparison for you to make $$$$$ The Cool Neutral Matte contains colors I don’t have in my collection … and I curious about all the hype … and Viseart is cruelty-free 😉

  2. I feel like none of these trends are new…?
    Because EVERY single Spring, the fashion mags tell me gingham is back in style. Really? How novel! 😛
    Anyway, I do like the look of the glosses and sheer lipsticks. I do sheer lipsticks all year round! None of this matte lipstick business for me.
    And maybe I’m channeling Spring already because the other day I wore lavender on my eyes for a soft eye look. 🙂

    1. You GO GIRL with your lavender eye look !!! 😉 It’s true, there is nothing new for spring but at least this summer I will be super trendy 😛 ( I rock these particular trends minus the strong blush all year long !)
