Top Summer Makeup Trends Worth Trying

There are some unique non-traditional makeup trends out there this year but we have chosen the more natural, everyday options that will keep you looking healthy, natural and sun kissed no matter where you’re going or what you’r doing. Let’s get into the details.


We have all used bronzer to sculpt our faces but the new trend is tantouring. Creating a chiseled cheekbone or thinner nose can change the appearance of the shape of your face. Tantouring is just what it sounds like. Using self tanner to counter your facial structure to create a more natural and effortless summer look. You can sweep under your cheekbones, on the sides of your nose, across the jawline and around the forehead to emphasize or de-emphasize facial feature. When using self-tanner be sure not to get it into your hairline. You can also try self tanner on your body to add definition. Applying self tanner on your collarbone, chest and legs can help emphasize your features.Tip: If your nervous to try this technique, try mixing a few drops of a self tanner with your moisturizer and apply to the places you want to contour. The nose, cheek line and jaw area are the favorites. This approach will enable a slow change. Afraid of mistakes? Don’t worry, self tanner is not permanent. The other benefit is that contouring is excellent for a day at the beach or pool when you’r not wearing makeup.
