The Top Makeup Trends to Wind Down Summer 2016

Hello my darling Slay Queens! Here are the top makeup trends to wind down summer 2016.

The warm and bright weather may be coming to an end, but beauty wise, you can still finish it

off with style. Whether you are looking for a minimal non-touring or a glitter, this tail end of

summer has you covered. All you need to do is to be adventurous and after all fall will catch up

with you soon enough. So, don’t be the last to try these trends when they come calling your


1.Negative Space Eyelinernegative-space-eyeliner-makeupstyle20


This eyeliner trend has a similar streamlined appeal as the negative space nails. It is quite simple,

but sleek and graphic. It is just like drawing lines in the crease of your eyelids or better still

tracing the outlines of your cut eye. Because the main concentration here is the cut out effect,

your lines must be precise and always stay intact. Ensure you use a long lasting and budge-proof

liquid eyeliner as well as a shadow primer.


Contrary to how a heavy contoured look will make you appear, non-touring is extremely soft. It

makes your skin appear glowing and dewy without it looking dry or super matte. As a matter of

fact, you should be the only one knowing you are wearing it and no one else should even see it.

During summer, most people spend time outside and wear lighter foundation. This makes it look

even more natural. The essentials for non-touring are a tinted moisturizer, a highlighter, and a

luminous shimmer.


Even though summer is coming to an end, sandbagging is still a technique you can use to

accentuate your beauty. This technique entails caking on some loose powder around the bottom

edges of your lips and underneath your eyes to absorb grease for an ultra-smooth matte finish.

4.Color Lashescolor-lashes-makeupstyle20

If you want to indulge in a bit of color play either at a music festival or in the office, the easiest

way is to have a non-black mascara moment. You can attain this by mixing and matching a

bright lash hue such as yellow or combat blue with complementing slashes of eyeliner. If you

want, you can even wear it alone. Get this from me; it is going to make you look cooler 20 times


5.Glitter Tearsglitter-tears-makeupstyle20

Glitter is still around and as hot as ever. What a gift to mark the last days of summer! Whether

you want a stack of sparkle that makes a statement or just a light dusting, covering up your dark

circles with sparkle is real fun. The good thing is, you don’t need much to create your tears of

joy; you just need sparkles and a moisturizer. The moisturizer is to help you make them stick.

6.Glossy Lids

Back in the day, glossy lids was a trick adored by Marilyn Monroe. As a matter of fact, makeupglossy-lids-makeupstyle20

artists during Fashion Week dab Vaseline on top of the contestants’ eyelids as a way of giving

them a glossy finish. Did you know you can attain the same look even when you use lip gloss?

This is where beauty becomes interesting.

In addition to the above trends, you can also go for lip oils. These will give you a wet shiny

finish and nourish your pout. What a nice way to bid farewell to summer!
