Summer is officially here, and with it comes a whole new crop of beauty trends - fronted by sexy metallic finishes, gorgeously nonchalant hair, and ultra bright makeup shades.
Silver, copper, gold…these are the of-the-moment, look-at-me choices for eyes, that, with the proper technique, can help brighten your orbs and make you look less tired. Seen backstage at Donna Karan and D Squared, makeup artists loaded on the heavy metals with a light, pretty touch.
To make your eyes look really well-rested, extend the shade around the eye, toward the inner corners and slightly underneath. The shiny pigments will reflect light, drawing attention to your peepers and giving you that fresh, dewy, just-woke-up look. Any skin tone can get away with any of these shades as long as you use lots of mascara to visually open the eyes, and blend well. Keep the lips natural and rosy to rock this look day or night.
To get the elegant waves, wrap large sections of hair around a large-barrel curling iron for 10 seconds, release, and finger-comb.
To achieve this look, dry your hair with a diffuser to maintain your natural texture, flip your head upside down, pull some strands down around your face and secure the back with a few bobby pins. Spritz with a flexible hold hairspray and you're all set.
