Smart Cover Brings You Fun Summer Makeup Trends!

If you’re looking to change things up now that the weather’s warm and spirits are high, you might enjoy some of this year’s fun summer makeup trends. The 2019 spring/summer runways were all about tiny hints of experimentation paired with otherwise classic looks. Think bare-looking skin with just a little shine, accentuated with a bold lip color.

Some fun lip looks for this summer include orange and bright magenta, to make you look like a gorgeous wildflower. If subtle is more your speed, nudes with a touch of brown and pink are trending now too. Try Smart Cover’s Two-in-One Glowstick if you like just a touch of rosy color and shine on your cheeks and lips.

To achieve the “foundation-free” look that’s hot this year, the Smart Cover Stick will hide dark under-eye circles and other facial imperfections, while our Perfect Touch Camouflage Crème gives you a flawless finish. Smart Cover’s Compact Finishing Powder will make you look cool and smooth no matter how hot it gets.

Fun Summer Makeup Trends

“After a long absence, ‘90s nostalgia paired with wanderlust have inspired makeup artists to pull the bronzer out of the back of the drawer, and use it liberally on the runways,” proclaims beauty writer Maya Adivi. Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer can help you achieve this look if you’re feeling daring. If you like your bronzer understated, apply gently with a big, soft brush to add a little extra definition to your natural features. Believable Bronzer is also a great way to give yourself a sun-kissed look without worrying about dangerous UV rays.

Memorial Day is just a couple of weeks away and before you know it, summer will be here. You can count on Smart Cover to help you navigate this year’s fun summer makeup trends. We help you make beautiful look easy!

Do you wear short shorts?

Whether you actually wear short shorts or you prefer longer, more relaxed styles, you’re undoubtedly showing some leg this time of year, and you have plenty of options.

According to fashion writer Ana Colon for Glamour.com, “Bermuda shorts are undergoing a reinvention, and this season they’re reentering mainstream retail, with various interpretations—from baggy to fitted, from khaki to denim—available for any shoppers who would like just a little bit more coverage, please.”

If you want something a little more form-fitting, the 90’s trend of bike shorts as mainstream attire is making a major comeback. Whether you remember this look from the first go-around, or like this young Buzzfeed writer, it’s all new to you, bike shorts can be a comfy way of baring your legs without showing too much skin.

Of course, there are always capris if you want to feel nice and covered but still show off your shapely calves, and stay cool! It’s a classic look that can be dressed up or down and works for most body types. Cropped pants, which really just bare your ankles, look great with sandals or even flip-flops, and definitely evoke the feeling of summer.

Show Some Leg!

If you have varicose veins, bruises, or any other skin concerns on your legs, Smart Cover’s waterproof Concealing Crème will hide them for you. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone, and don’t be afraid to mix shades for a perfect match.

To create a sun-kissed look without having to reckon with potentially harmful UV rays, try Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer, which works on the face and body. What’s great about applying the Believable Bronzer to your legs is that it not only makes them look tanned, but it instantly gives them a leaner, more toned appearance! You may just sport some short shorts, after all!

The Bronze Goes to You!

If you want the beauty effects of the sun without the sun, the bronze goes to you!

We use blush to mimic the natural rosiness that results from cardiovascular activity, or the effect of the cold air on your cheeks in the winter. It can be a sweet but subtle way of adding the spark of youth to your appearance.

The Bronze Goes to You

While a rosy glow is never out of fashion, as summer approaches, a lot of women would rather look as if they’ve been kissed by the sun than by Jack Frost.A great way to achieve this (while avoiding the sun) is with Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer! You can keep on protecting your skin  from the potential dangers of UV rays while looking like a sun-worshipping goddess.

Bronzer can also be used for contouring, if you want to create the illusion of higher, more defined cheekbones. It can minimize the appearance of a round face, too, if you want a slimmer look. Beauty writer Rajana Tony of Pinkmirror.com offers some easy steps to get this effect:

“Suck in your cheeks and sweep into the hollow in an angled up and down motion from your temples. Blend the remaining product in an E-shaped motion at the sides of your face, darkening the forehead edge, the cheek hollow and the bottom of your chin.”

There are so many amazing beauty tools and cosmetic products on the market that it can sometimes be a little intimidating. The key is to start by asking yourself what you want to see when you look in the mirror. Once you have that image in your mind, we can help you get there. All you need is a vision… and a little Smart Cover!

Believe and Be Bronze

bronzed_smiling_faceOne of this winter’s makeup trends was ferociously rosy cheeks, with blush applied to look like “adorable windburn.” Now that we’re heading into summer, premier makeup artists are trading blush for bronzer. Summer is all about looking like you came by your beauty effortlessly, preferably as a side effect of lounging at the beach all day.

Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer is the perfect way to create that illusion. Protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays by applying sunscreen, but still get that gorgeous tanned glow with a quick sweep of Believable Bronzer. Use a little on the apples of your cheeks, on your eyelids and on the tip of your nose and look sun-kissed in seconds.

With an all-purpose makeup brush, you can even apply the Believe Bronzer to your shoulders, arms, legs and any other areas that you want to look tanned. Build color according to your personal preference, so you can be as golden and tawny as your mood dictates. Summer is a great time to play up your natural beauty while eschewing more complicated makeup routines.

Katie Dickens for Elle.com writes: “When it’s hot, a bright lip can be a bit high-maintenance and a steady stream of cold beverages make for constant reapplication.” She recommends following the runway trend toward delicate, candy colored lips in playful pink hues. Smart Cover’s Two-in-One Glow Stick will give your lips just the right amount of color and shine to achieve this look, and it’s a creamer blush too!

Believable Bronzer lets you have it both ways: healthy skin and a gorgeous “tan!” Summer only lasts a few short months, but your skin is with you all your life, so treat it well… and treat it to Smart Cover!
