Generally I’m pretty ambitious about trying new beauty style when a new season starts! Here are ten trends I have noticed so far this year : let me know what big trends you’re seeing now, and which ones you plan on partaking in!
1. Striped nails
Crazy nail art was huge last year, and I’m sure there’s no stopping it this year. We saw tons of stripes on the SS 14 runways, from single strokes to grids.
2. Barely there makeup
Do you always feel too done up wearing any makeup? Lucky for you, a bare, authentically fresh-faced look is absolutely trendy. The only rule: always, always, remember SPF.
3. Gold lids
If last year was the year of the bold lip, I would like to declare this year the year of the bold eye shadow. Nothing is more eye-catching (pun intended) than a smoky, shadow all across the lids.
4. Orange lips
I love the red lip, but this fiery orange one is what I’m trying on this year. Remember coral is a universally flattering color – so why not try it out?
5. Slick straight hair
Bust out the flat irons and heat protectant, slick straight hair is back in.
6. Flowers in Hair
I’m forever in love with that bohemian music festival look, so a flower crown is totally up my alley. And it’s an easy DIY project if you so choose!
7. Braided Updos
Braids equal instant pretty, and an updo version is totally next level. I are literally drooling over these braided updo’s; you’ve got to check out Pinterest for some incredible inspiration!
The key to voluminous hair as shown above? Lots and lots of dry shampoo and hair teasing!
9. Retro headbands
Hair accessories are coming back in a major way, and I’m partial to the retro looking headbands.
10. Light berry lips
A bold berry lip was all the rage last winter, and you can still rock the shade this year with a more subtle version.
So, do you wear any of these trends? Are you thinking about trying something new? Share your thoughts below in the comments!
