Incredible Lashes from Top to Bottom – Lashes are the perfect cherry on top to a stunning makeup application. Summer 2014 trends encourage not leaving out those ever-forgotten bottom lashes. Using mascara or eyelash extensions, to overly accentuate the bottom and top lashes creates a sultry and retro 70’s kind of look. Some artists will clump the lashes together to create a more dramatic, high fashion look. Try layering the mascara to achieve incredible lashes. Apply the first coat of mascara to both top and bottom lashes and let dry completely before applying your 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th coat, depending on your desired result. Be careful to apply each layer with finesse. Remember you are shaping and defining the lashes, as well as making them appear fuller.

Beautiful face

Natural makeup – Summer 2014 is bringing good news for those of us who enjoy a quick, everyday, natural makeup application. Natural makeup is all about accentuating one’s naturally beautiful features. Nude/matte lip colors are recommended. Try to pay special attention to the features that shape the face, like the eyebrows and cheekbones. Perfectly groomed and shaped eyebrows and a light, matte bronzer on the cheeks can carry this look entirely. Sometimes using a light powder or tinted moisturizer is more appropriate than using a foundation. Using a heavier foundation with this look requires more makeup on the eyes, lips, and cheeks to ensure that the skin tone does not become washed out, which takes away from the soft natural feel that inspires this trend.
