The best eyeshadow trends of the summer

Natural colors work well for summer.A smoky eye can work wonders at the nightclub, but it looks totally overdone on a beachy summer day. If you're heading to the shore and want to look beautiful without looking too made-up, a subtle, shimmery shadow is just the ticket.

Summer is all about embracing the beauty of nature – and that goes for your summertime makeup, too. Daytime looks for summer should be all about enhancing your natural features with a sheer bronzer, soft pink cheeks and nude lips that show off just how pretty you really are. Don't fog up those summer freckles with too much foundation – let the real you shine through. And when it comes to eyeshadow, it's all about keeping things subtle.

Take your cues from the sunset and opt for pink, gold and peach for a beautiful summer look. Pick out some shimmery shadows that will lend just a hint of sparkle to your ensemble, and dot a bright champagne color right above your pupil to make those peepers pop. Skip the heavy eyeliner and top off your style with just a couple brushes of mascara. You'll be looking fresh-faced all day long.

Vogue reports on a hot makeup trend for fall 2010

Vogue reports on a hot makeup trend for fall 2010While shopping for the current fads is a blast, it’s always fun to look ahead to upcoming trends as well. It seems that come fall 2010, girls who love a dazzling look with an easy application may be in luck.

According to Vogue, the fall runways were wrought with a feeling of “broken glamour” – alluring, sophisticated styles that have come a bit undone – and this vibe was embodied by slightly tousled hairstyles and bold yet imperfect eyeshadow.

Though past seasons have called for impeccable eye makeup, including intricate liner and complicated shading, the fall runway shows featured bold lids saturated by a single “swoosh” of color.

“It’s modern minimalism,” makeup artist Pat McGrath told the magazine of the strong but simple look. Women still get the smolder of a smoky eye, but with a bit more color – and it’s easy to recreate. Instead of painstakingly applying layers of product, this look is achieved by simply sweeping a high-pigment eyeshadow across lids.

Women interested in rocking this look this autumn can start purchasing perfect products now. Two Faced Eyeshadow Collection includes a wide variety of shades to choose from, and its high-pigment formula ensures even and long-lasting coverage.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19891935-ADNFCR

You can pair a bright lip with smoldering eye makeup!

You can pair a bright lip with smoldering eye makeup!It’s no secret that summertime is the season to paint your pout in bright hues. From magenta to coral to fire engine red, ladies everywhere may embrace the warm weather by sporting a bold-colored smile.

Though it’s a fun trend, it can also make selecting eye makeup a challenge – the shadow shouldn’t overwhelm your lip color, and a smoky eye can instantly take a red lip from beachy to burlesque.

It’s easy to opt for a simple look, a dusting of sheer powder and a single coat of mascara, but you shouldn’t be afraid to emphasize your eyes as you rock a bright pout. And, with the right color palette and application, it’ll be a breeze.

The first step is to pull away from traditional blacks and browns, which can be too dark and harsh to pair with a magenta smile. Instead, opt for silvers, coppers and golds – these neutral shades will help your eyes smolder without overwhelming your pretty pout.

To try this look, line the outside corner of your eyes with a light-colored liner, like GloMinerals Metallic gloEye Pencils Trio, which come in bronze, copper and platinum. The shades are ideal for subtle yet smoky summertime eyes.

After, apply a shimmery sheer shadow, like Paula Dorf‘s Eye Color Glimmer, to add a subtle wash of color that will make your eyes pop.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19881690-ADNFCR

The Gossip Girls dazzle with two-toned eyeshadowWhen it comes to tracking down today’s hottest fads, women across the nation tune into the hit show Gossip Girl. Though the series is currently on its summer hiatus, ladies looking for the latest cosmetic trend can turn to the show’s beautiful young actresses.

At the Chanel show in Paris, Blakey Lively and Leighton Meester may have appeared separately on the red carpet, but both starlets rocked the same type of two-toned eye makeup.

While Lively selected two similar shades, dusting her top lids with a peach shadow and her lower lash line with a gold shimmer, Meester opted for contrasting hues that complemented each other. The brunette beauty applied gray and silver pigments to her upper lids, while lining her bottom lashes with brown and gold shadows.

Women who want to master the two-toned approach should look for eyeshadow compacts which include multiple shades, as the colors are sure to complement one another and will eliminate much of the guesswork of selecting two hues. Jane Iredale PurePressed Triple Eye Shadow boasts three unique pigments formulated to match well with one another.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19881688-ADNFCR
