Curious? Global make-up artist Jenny Smith from NARS and Anastasia Soare from Anastasia Beverly Hills will tell you what the trends are and how you can easily apply the hottest make-up looks.
What are the make-up trends for summer 2020?
Summer Make-ups 2020 is the time for a real blast: Especially on the eyes and nails. “Graphic eyelid lines in neon colors are mega trendy right now. No wonder, they accentuate the eyes – and thanks to the ongoing need for masks, they are more in focus than ever,” says Jenny Smith.
That’s too wild for you? Then of course we’ve got something more subtle up our sleeves: just as hip as eye-catching eye make-up, we’ve got lots of bronzer, lip gloss and thick eyebrows. And on the nails? “Eye-catching nail art will be making a comeback in manicures in summer 2020,” says Smith.
These are the top five make-up trends for summer 2020 – including instructions on how to apply make-up.
1. eye make-up can really pop now
Looking as if you had nothing on with a lot of make-up: That was the make-up motto in recent years. Keyword: “No make-up make-up”.
This summer, the exact opposite is the order of the day. At least on the eyelids: Here you let it now best with only one product really bang: Eyeliner in luminous colors. Jenny Smith from NARS knows: “Due to the compulsory use of masks in many places, the eyes come into focus. Especially an eyelid line in cobalt blue is now very fashionable.” But it’s not easy to apply either.
The expert recommends: “Draw a broad eyelid line along the lashes with a blue kajal and blend slightly upwards with a small, firm brush at the outer angle. This makes the eye make-up look very graphic. Add false eyelashes, done!”
2. Lip gloss is the make-up must-have in summer 2020
You’ve probably already noticed while shopping that the 2000s are celebrating their fashion comeback, right? The revival does not stop at make-up. The beauty must-have of yesteryear, which is now back in fashion: lip gloss – for the perfect 2000s look, preferably with shimmering particles!
Nice side effect: Gloss makes the lips look fuller than matt nuances because it reflects the light. For all those who don’t like gloss, Jenny Smith recommends a lip oil – a tinted care oil especially for the lips. It doesn’t stick as much as gloss, provides a lot of moisture and gives the lips a delicate touch of colour.
3. Eyebrows now look even more natural
“Beauty trends reflect the times, including brows. Just recently, you couldn’t go to a salon for eyebrow styling for months. Instead of plucking them themselves, many women simply let their brows grow,” says brow guru Anastasia Soare. “To make it look cool and not overgrown, I recommend keeping the hairs in check with clear eyebrow gel.”
“Brush the gel in with short upward strokes, so that all hairs stand up. This way the eyebrows will immediately look well-groomed,” says Anastasia Soare. It becomes even more orderly if you put on the longer hairs, which now stick out at the top, pointing outwards. Small gaps can be filled with brow powder or an eyebrow pencil.
4. Bronzer may be a little more in summer
We all want to be crisp and brown in summer. For that we sizzle in the sun for hours? Not in the bag! Fortunately, you don’t have to. Because a holiday complexion like after a week’s summer holiday you can also put on make-up.
To make the skin tone look a little warmer, just apply a small amount of bronzing powder along the cheekbones with a fluffy brush. For a little more glow, you can also dust the powder very lightly over the whole face, neck, décolleté and (don’t forget!) the ears,” explains Jenny Smith and adds: “For a tan and a light contouring, you can take a firmer brush and apply Bronzing Powder under the cheekbones, along the jaw line and around the hairline – and then blend well!
5. Arty nail designs are super trendy this summer
“Nail art is simply super fun and an easy way to express yourself and your style,” says make-up professional Smith. Don’t worry, the small work of art on the nails doesn’t have to be very elaborate for an eye-catching effect. “A good start, for example, would be half painted nails.” The expert explains:
- You stick a piece of tape over half the nail.
- Paint the other half with a coloured lacquer of your choice
- Remove again when damp, allow to dry
A layer of Top-Coat seals the color and lets the remaining nail shine beautifully
You got two left hands? Even then you don’t have to go to the nail studio: “There are ready-made nail stickers with fruits, flowers and crystals. Every woman can do nail art with them,” says Smith.
So, what’s your favorite make-up trend for this summer: subtle with bronzer and gloss or more fancy with bright eyeliner and graphic nail art? Whatever trend your beauty heart beats for, all five are stylish.
