Summer beauty trends you'll actually want to wear

The SS19 catwalks were awash with a whole new host of beauty trends, from statement emerald cat eyes at Versace to gravity-defying ponytails at Ashley Williams. But luckily for us, the catwalk also played host to some incredibly wearable beauty trends this season. Proving summer beauty isn't all about festival glitter (although there was ample of that, see Pat McGrath's creations at Valentino for inspiration) neon coral lips, unkempt brows, and gloriously fresh skin are all key.

A statement lip

A bright lip is the ultimate beauty statement and paired with otherwise minimal makeup it looks effortlessly cool. Go bold with orange lipstick and bronzed skin, or take inspiration from the Burberry runway and wear a classic red with just a little mascara. Make sure it lasts all day by applying lip liner in a shade close to your natural colouring first.


Natural brows

A low-maintenance beauty trend is something we can definitely get on board with, and this summer embracing your natural eyebrows is the way to go. Channel Lily Collins and create volume using upward strokes with a gel, while keeping shaping to a minimum. It’s an instantly youthful look.


A healthy glow

Glossy skin is going nowhere fast, but how do you hit the sweet spot before you look shiny? The key is to start with skincare. Whatever your skin type, keep your complexion well-hydrated by using a serum and moisturiser twice a day, but if you’re prone to oiliness, use a mattifying primer on your t-zone too. Use a glow-giving foundation like Armani Luminous Silk and add highlighter to the highest points of your face – your cheekbones, browbones and cupid’s bow.
