The ‘natural beauty’ is a major trend this spring and summer. The emphasis is on achieving a flawless skin and complexion that is both natural and lightweight so that your skin looks untouched. During the summer seasons, you should avoid heavy makeup as much as possible because the season’s heated factors could ruin your makeup. The natural is great for casual occasions & perfect for day wear.


  • Moisturizing is key to hydrated looking skin
  • Use lightweight skin foundations
  • Loose finishing powders
  • Natural looking blushes
  • Nude lipstick or lip gloss
  • Apply a simple coat of mascara

plush blush PLUSH BLUSH:

Using light sheer blush that contain a bit of shimmer is a major trend this summer.  Heavy bronzers and rich colored powders are a thing of the past. Light applications of pastel or light rosy colors achieve a natural cheek glow that compliments the overall look.


  • Pastel colors
  • Sheer blush with a hint of shimmer
  • Soft rose tones
  • Peach based
  • Light coral or light plum

eye surprise EYES SURPRISE

It is all about the fantasy within the eyes rather than being practical this summer. The illusion of extra long lashes – whether achieved by trying false lashes or using lengthening mascara – dark, luscious lashes are key.  The idea? Subtle and soft with a hint of magical shimmer and pop.


  • Use chocolate brown or navy liner instead of black liner
  • Nude, soft coral, gold or bronze eye shadow
  • Eye shadows with a hint of shimmer
  • Natural false lashes or lengthening mascara

Lavish Lips LAVISH LIPS:

Bold, sparkly, bright and glittery colors are out this season. Applying a sheer balm over bare lips or nude pinks or beiges with a hint of shine can achieve the look any day. Keeping it soft and pretty with a feminine flare that is both soft and romantic is key this season.  Less is more.


  • Moisturizing is key to hydrated soft lips
  • Use natural or rose lip liners
  • Sheer balm over nude lips
  • Rose and peachy lipstick/gloss
