Summer weather is still hot and steamy here in Chicagoland, which means we are still weeks away from flannels and visits to the pumpkin farm. Take full advantage of the rest of the summer season and festivities by trying out new makeup trends that are still hot. Here are a few makeup trends we are loving and dying to try before autumn makes its colorful return.

Aqua Colored Eyes
Blue eyeshadow in the 1980s never looked as good as aqua shimmering eyes that are hot this summer. We love how aqua can look great for any eye color, and how it can instantly transform us into a dreamy mermaid.

Natural Face, Plump Lips
Summer swims and sweat can make keeping makeup on an almost impossible task. Lucky for us, natural looks are in this season. Try a simple SPF moisturizer and a plumping lipstick before heading out to your next street festival. You will look great and your skin will appreciate the makeup free outing.

Glitter, Glitter, Glitter
We love seeing glitter on the runways and on the streets of Chicago during our evening commute. There’s nothing like a pop of shimmer to turn any look into a glamorous one. Try adding glitter to your eye, starting simple on the lid before branching out to the corners of the eyes for even more drama. Glitter doesn’t have to be reserved for more formal occasions either; try adding a bit for work or for your next brunch date.

Try Some Gloss
Going with a natural look can also mean choosing a slick, but natural, lip. While you may remember lip gloss from your high school backpack days, the gloss is back everywhere this summer. Slick on a clear coat over your natural lip, or choose a gloss with a light pigment. In any case, you will look on trend at your next outing.

Pamper Your Skin
No makeup trend looks as good as a well cared for complexion. If you are missing a youthful glow or are seeing more blemishes lately, it could be due to keeping a busy summer (and sunny) social calendar. Make an appointment at GOLDCOAST medspa for a treatment that will nourish and improve your skin’s complexion. We will get you looking and feeling your best so that you can feel confident rocking that natural look.
