Corals, and Golds, and Blues, Oh My!

No matter what time of the year it is, when asked what summer reminds them of, almost everyone thinks of Luau-themed parties, and anything to do with water. Pools, Beaches, Boating, Snorkeling, and much more.

When it comes to the makeup trends for summer, there are always some trends that come back year-to-year. Bright fun colors, coral and peach tones, sea-foam colored clothing, etc.

Since summer is almost half over - I know, I don't want to think of it that way either - lets get your makeup trends all in order so your August makeup will be trendy and perfect!

If you aren't into super bold colors, coral lipsticks are perfect. There are so many different shades of coral that finding the perfect one can be done easily. Department stores are great for that because you can try them on the inner side of your wrist. Don't apply straight to your lips unless cleaned thoroughly with alcohol, you never know who tried that lipstick recently! You can also return it if it's not exactly what you were looking for. Buy a few shades and play at home, then return the ones you don't like.

Natural, coral and gold tones are great for the eyes during the summer months. Looking sun-kissed and bronzed is trendy, looking too-dark or orange is not!
Remember to stick too one trend, you don't want super bronzed and gold eyes and florescent coral lipstick - that is a no-no! Stick to one, and done!

If you want to try something even more bold...use blue and green tones around the eye...

...but remember to keep the rest of the skin and face classic - nude lips and a light cheek compliment this look.
