Summer Beauty Trends


Saudi Gazette

From Rihanna’s body lava to bringing out that inner glow, there’s a lot to discover about make up trends this summer. We tried Sephora’s popular range to begin with.

• Fenty Beauty- Match Stix Skinstick

The magnetized makeup sticks comes in both matte and shimmer. If you’re using it for contouring, make sure it suits your skin type. If you have oily skin, avoid this and go for powder when contouring. The creamy formula makes it easy to blend when correcting or concealing.

• Kat Von D

The lock-it spray is a great beauty fix you can use daily. It doesn’t help much in the scorching heat during the day, but is great for a night-out. The ink liner is easy to use for those on the go but it is not made for the strong, dark and dramatic look. Kat Von D's Shade + Light Crème Contour Palette works ideally for normal or dry skin. Their older powder palette however works well for oily to dry. The new palette offers shades for contouring and highlighting. The only advantage is that the texture is not greasy and is easy to blend.

• Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

If you’re going for the natural look this summer, using soft colors and highlighters, then Becca’s shimmering skin perfector is a keeper. We like Chrissy Teigen’s Glow Face Palette for obvious reasons.

• What’s more important than make up? Sephora’s make up wipes that can save you at the end of a long night when you just don’t have the energy for the cleanse-tone-moisturize routine.

We Recommend:

• Rihanna created the Fairy Bomb to back life back to make up. The limited edition fun glittering Pom Pom is pre-packed with superfine 3D shimmer created for the dab and glow effect.

• When Huda Beauty launches a product, best believe it’s a winner. The latest addition is the loose powder ideal for baking and a fresh look. “I wanted to make baking super easy and demystify the concept of baking which, is what led us to create this product. It’s only takes a few minutes to bake, and will literally last the whole day. Once we get people to start baking areas like their undereye and smile lines, it is life changing for everyone’s makeup routine,” Huda Kattan said. The Liquid Matte Minis are available online in all colors so make sure you grab some for the road.
