by Christene Carr

Summer is officially here, and if you are anything like us, you simply cannot wait to dive head first into the season’s hottest beauty trends. Here are 5 summer beauty trends to try right now!

Orange Lips

If you are scared of an orange lip, don't be. With the right lip product and application technique, anyone can rock an orange lip. If you have fuller lips, a matte lipstick such as NYX Indie Flick is a great option. You can start with a light swipe and gradually build up to the intensity that best suites you. Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Fireball provides a luminous creamy finish and works on just about all lips. Want a long wear gloss instead? Armour Beauty opaque lipgloss in Lucy gives great coverage and wear that will last through any rainstorm.

Colored Mascara

Cobalt blue or magnetic purple may not be the look for your average stuffy office but it is a fun and extremely wearable way to get lashes popping. For a super intense colored lash, line the eyes with a pencil in the exact shade of your mascara. For just a hint of color, apply your regular mascara then use the colored mascara to add a bit of drama to the tips of your lashes.

The Side Braid

It honestly wouldn't be summer without braids. The key to this season’s side braid is to add some texture to the hair and keep it lose. Spray Oribe Dry texturizing spray on loosely curly hair, sweep it to the side and throw in a braid. If the braid is too tight gently pull on pieces to separate.

Graphic Liner

If you're still only adding liner to your water line you're missing a great style moment. Try a downward curved line on the inner eye and an upward curved line on the outer eye for something fun and different. Not that bold? Try a colored cat eye. When wearing graphic liner, keep the rest of your makeup simple and let your eyes do the talking.

Coral Lips and Tips

The coral craze during summer months is nothing new. This summer, why not go matchy-matchy with coral lips and tips? Try YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #16 for the perfect coral pout and Morgan Taylor’s Color Me Bold on nails.
