Bronze skin, glossy lips and soft pastel eyes are some of the hot beauty trends for this Spring Summer 2015. These trends were most popular and seen on the fashion runways of London, Paris and Milan, not forgetting the fashion weeks in Mumbai and Delhi. Let’s take a detailed look at the Top 5 Looks!
Bronzed Contoured Skin
Bronze, sun-kissed skin made the list like they’d just gotten back from a restful beach vacation. Effortless and chic, this look is perfect for the lazy Sunday brunches this summer.
*My Tip. Use a Bronzer that is suitable for your skin tone. Contour hollows of your cheek bones, the halo of your face and the side of your nose with a matte bronzer only!
No Makeup Make up Look
Exactly what it says! You can achieve this look with Lancôme Miracle Air De Teint foundation. This foundation blurs and corrects the look of imperfections. The complexion appears translucent, matte and even, and glowing with radiance.
*My Tip. Use a pinky-nude lipstick and blush for a more “barely-there” overall look.
Pop of Color
This summer, a pop of color on the eyes with a nude balanced cheek and lips is the way to go. Colors such as Electric Blue, Orange, Sea Green or Purples on the eyes bring out the fresh summer charm in you.
*My Tip. Use swipes of lipstick in place of traditional eyeliner and set it with a powder eye shadow for colors that you do not have in traditional eyeliners or eye shadows.
This season we saw a lot of bright colors on the lips, especially Tangerines and Corals. Luckily Corals and Oranges look really good on Indian skin tones.
*My Tip. Wear a bright Coral lipstick on a nude bare skin with lots of Mascara on the lashes.
Brown Eye Shadow Tones
Are you a Brown Eyes Girl? This season carry of a natural tone of Brown shades on your eyes. Play it soft or smoke it up for an evening look. You can team it up with a pop of color on the lips.
*My Tip. Add a black gel or a Lancôme Kohl in Noir pencil along the waterline to give it an edge.
