This summer’s top gorgeous make-up and beauty trends

JEDDAH: Each year, the summer season gives us hot new fashion and beauty trends to try out and this year is no different.
Avid beauty fans can keep up with the latest trends on social media, learning easy techniques from a host of make-up artists and hair stylists but if you want the lowdown now, read on for 2017’s sizzling summer beauty looks.
Before you begin, remember that it’s always best to start with a proper base — using an oil-free moisturizer is important, followed by a primer which will keep your make-up in place for longer.

Blush is back
Try using a rosy shade of pink that best suits your skin tone to give yourself a healthy-looking flush during the summer months. Ditch the powder blush though, it can highlight greasier areas on the face and leave skin looking patchy. Cream blushes are easy to use and look more natural.
Let your skin breathe
The no make-up look is back in for the summer season. That means no strobing, no baking and no contouring. It’s all about reducing the amount of product on your face to let the skin breath during the hotter months. Opt for an oil-free sunscreen moisturizer instead of foundation, conceal blemishes and dark circles by dabbing on concealer and lightly dust with powder in the sweat prone areas such as the T-zone. Apply a shimmering shadow in your inner eye, groom your brows with a clear brow gel for a more natural look and top it off with a lip tint or lip balm in a dark pink or red hue.
The power of a bold lip
This season, shades of fuchsia, subtle light plum, fluorescent and creamy red and shades of coral orange are the go-to colors. Why not try pairing a clean face with minimal make-up with a bright, bold lip? It will leave you looking fresh without being too drab. To ensure your lipsticks stay on longer, add a light dusting of translucent powder over the top. This also removes any excess oil that could make lips tacky and sticky in the summer heat.

Blot away
Get rid of oil by using blotting paper. These small patches of paper can mop up oil and sweat without wiping off your make up. Another tip to prevent excessive oil is to use only one layer of make-up, meaning no strobing or contouring. Another tip to keep your make-up from getting ruined is to use waterproof bronzers and eyeliners to avoid them melting and smudging.
Beautifully bronze

Bronze tones are a summer must have. Bronzers are used to enhance the color of the face, giving that sun-kissed-fresh-from-the-beach look we all want. A common mistake is to brush the whole face with bronzers but there are specific areas on the face and neck that should be powdered with a bronzer such as the bridge of the nose, the cheekbones, chin and temples. Be sure that the shade is right for your skin tone as you don’t want to look orange.
Skip the shimmer
Highlights can be very fun to use but skip the shimmer, they’re used to enhance your complexion but it’s not necessary in the summer heat.
Laid back locks
Summer is a time to relax so why not leave your tresses alone for a while? There’s no need to straighten, blow-dry or over curl your hair to make it look perfect. There is no harm in letting those flyways loose and working with your hair’s natural flow instead of against it. Boost those locks with a sea-salt spray to add body to your hair.


Hadid sisters mix things up in Milan

Hadid sisters mix things up in Milan

  • The looks play on the fashion house’s iconic bondage moment, mixing the shiny leather with more mundane looks, like blazers and jacket
  • Versace dedicated the show to Keith Flint of the British band The Prodigy, a friend of Versace’s who died earlier this year

DUBAI: Model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid took to the runway for Italian fashion house Versace in Milan on Saturday, as the label showed off its mix-and-match Spring/Summer 2020 line.

Dontatella Versace has tapped the soul of fashion house founded by her brother, the late Gianni Versace, with animal prints and loud fluorescents, The Associated Press reported.

The looks play on the fashion house’s iconic bondage moment, mixing the shiny leather with more mundane looks, like blazers and jacket. A shimmery leopard men’s top embroidered with Gianni Versace’s signature in silver peeks out of a knit vest, with black trousers and a cross-body bag that embrace femininity. Shimmery leopard prints were paired with slim trousers patterned with ancient vases.

“It is more about the confidence a guy has to express himself in a more flexible way,” said head menswear designer Ashley Fletcher.

The flexibility was clear as models including Gigi, her sister Bella and Irina Shayk exhibited the same looks: Gigi Hadid, for example, wearing a belted leather trench with hardware details over bare legs but with the same blue shirt and tie as the men — who also showed leg with the same look but with Bermuda shorts. Suit coats and jackets for him and her featured half-and-half Prince of Wales plaid and solid black, worn with a suit shirt, tie and black leather lace-up pants.

“I love you forever and ever, @donatella_versace. The queen!” Bella wrote on Instagram after the show.

Racing car motifs symbolized a coming of age and embrace of grown-up toys. The other repeating motif was the Gianni Versace signature, vertically running on ties and socks, AP reported.

“For every young man, the first car has a strong meaning.” Versace said. “It’s independence, maturity, but above all freedom.”

Versace dedicated the show to Keith Flint of the British band The Prodigy, a friend of Versace’s who died earlier this year — some models wore brightly dyed hair in his image, wearing acid-wash denim and tie-dye tops.
