Kate Fannin, our beauty trend editor, is gearing up for the summer season with bright, brilliant color.
Nothing says summer like a Popsicle™ (remember when you and your friends would fight over who got the red one?) – which is why we’re so excited about all the Popsicle-bright shades for lips and nails this season. The best part is, anything goes! Pops of pink, magenta, fuchsia and cherry are always fun for lips. OR, try a new trend by layering colors—a bold pink gloss looks amazing over a fun orange lipstick to create your own custom color.
For nails, take a vacation from elaborate nail art and keep it simple but punchy with colors like watermelon, tangerine, lemon and cantaloupe – who knew your granny’s citrus Jell-O mold could inspire such a hot summer trend? If you’re feeling more than one color or can’t decide, try different hues on different fingers, or contrast your fingers with your toes. And don’t forget a great top coat – not only will extend the life of your mani/pedi, but high-shine is a must for a summer “wet look.” Just grab your swimsuit, slather on the sunscreen, and you’re ready to show your bright side (no Jell-O mold required)!
