Summer Trends

I’m currently not-so-patiently waiting for Friday. In fact-I’ve spent all day thinking it was.. bummer! Not much to update on today but I wanted to include a post with my favorite summer trends.

Summer is the perfect time to try something new, everything (and everyone) is more relaxed so take this as an excuse to be daring!

1. Sleek Hair. You see it every season, but for summer this look actually works! It mimics hair post-dip in the pool and is sultry in a subtle way. Plus this style makes it almost impossible to have frizzy hair.

Here’s how: You can mix a dallop of light hold hair gel (too strong of hold can make hair crunchy) with a drop of hair oil and run through damp hair with a wide tooth comb from root to end. No part needed!
– Or try this Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel for soft sleek hair.

2. Gold Everything. It mimics the sun and can make you glow. Bronze and gold shades shine in the summer, no pun intended!

Here’s how: Swipe a bronze pencil on upper and lower lash lines and smudge for the perfect smoky eye look for day or night. You’ll wear this one all summer long.

3. Clear Coat. This makeup trend has been shown on runways all year long and what’s great about it is you can actually wear this practically.


A little bit of gloss over shadow or on bare skin looks incredibly sexy. Apply a bit of sheer lip gloss over the center of your lid (with or without makeup underneath). A few coats of mascara and you’re good to go.
