The Makeup Tricks You Need to Try This Summer

“It’s important to work on the skin as a canvas before you work on the makeup. For me, what works best is Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum for hydrating the skin and creating a natural glow. To create a fresh summer glow with a slightly tanned, sun-kissed look, I like to use Chanel Les Beiges Eau de Teint or a translucent tinted moisturizer in one shade darker to give you that ‘just been away’ complexion.

I like to use a light bronzer across the bridge of the nose, high on the apple of the cheeks, a little bit on the forehead and on the sides of the cheek, so you’re not contouring but it looks like you’ve been in the sun for a bit. I also like to use balmy textures—what I really love are products you can use everywhere, so a tinted balm that you can use on your lips, your cheeks and your eyes. It’s hydrating, and it shines and reflects the light, so you have a monochromatic look. It’s more of a feeling than a makeup look.”

“The current beauty trend I’m into at the moment is using orange blush as a contour—it immediately warms up your face and makes your makeup look more natural. We’ll definitely be seeing a lip liner and gloss combination trend. This is a timeless look among our generation and it’s a statement in itself.”

“Everyone is desperate to be more playful with their makeup after this past year, but they’re still favoring a more simplified, minimalist beauty. I love using futuristic metallics on the eyelids to create a bold but beautiful effect; think 1990s Kate Moss with silver-cream eyeshadow on the eyes, black gel eyeliner in the waterline, teamed with spa-like fresh skin and a subtle tint on the lips (Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint is perfect for this).

Bold, punk-like graphic eyeliner in unexpected bright colors is another trend I’m into. It feels joyful and optimistic, but it gives a cool attitude to your look. I’m also feeling a return to beautifully flushed cheeks. Tom Ford Cheek Color in Ravish is a favorite of mine—a perfect mix of pure and naughty. Keep the rest of the look simple—the focus should be on the cheeks and a complementary flush on the lips to match.”

“The biggest trend will be to not follow trends. Play, experiment, free yourself up from rules. Fill eyebrows in to be full and boyish or bleach them off to create more space for eye color. Use softly blended reds and pinks on the eyes or take an eyeliner pen and get creative—lines, dots, dashes, whatever suits you. Look at bands from the 1970s and 1980s. Don’t copy the whole look, just take one idea and make it your own. Striving for symmetry and perfection has never been my thing. Change it up to suit your mood.”
