Notice how it’s a few degrees less scorching nowadays? Hallelujah! The relentless heat is now punctuated with more frequent bursts of rain—and this indicates the seasonal switch from summer to cuddle weather. Naturally, with change comes a new wave of beauty trends to look forward to. Here are 6 hair and makeup looks to tide you over ‘til the next season. (AKA the holidays!).
First, there was contouring (and the million ways to do it). Then came strobing, which we all eventually found out was just plain ol’ highlighting. Now, the face-sculpting buzzword to know is non-touring. It’s basically a marriage of contouring and highlighting—minus the copious amounts of makeup. Check out Gigi Hadid, who has mastered the luscious, lit-from-within look!
See how Claudia Barretto bares her beautiful visage with minimal makeup while still looking sculpted? You can achieve the same daytime-friendly look using an illuminating primer and tinted moisturizer all over the face and finishing with an illuminator over all the high points.
Yes, it’s time to cut it all off again—but this shoulder-length chop is still long enough to straighten, curl, and tie up. Always ahead of the fash pack, Kim Jones made it cool before anyone else could. This is a style best served laidback!
To segue from summer to rainy season, Liza Soberano debuts a shorter ‘do that fits right in with this trend. Choppy layers frame her beautiful face, while the loose curls give it a casual-chic spin.
ONE-TONE PEACH MAKEUP
If a trend can make us look polished and put-together with minimum-to-no effort, we can definitely hop on the bandwagon. Monochromatic peach makeup can warm up your complexion without going full-on bronze—not to mention, the color looks good pretty much every complexion)! See how Bea Alonzo keeps it au naturel in her pretty peach tones?
One-tone makeup is by its nature simple, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Arci Muñoz makes it exciting with matte and shimmery finishes for an unexpectedly sexy peach #lewk.
If you’re still hesitant to try wet, slicked-back hair, gals like Maxene Magalona are finding ways to make the trend super wearable. Her tight ponytail suggests just-showered hair but looks more silky-smooth than oily!
Putting your fave in-your-face tubes on hold for some kissable pink lips. Iza Calzado kicked up her no-makeup makeup with a satin-finish posy pink—a soft color that makes her look impressively fresh.
Think pink is always synonymous to soft and understated? Think again! Rhian Ramos offsets her kohl-rimmed eyes with a matte pink lipstick that’s feminine yet fierce. You like? We’ve got plenty a pale pink for the picking.
PASTEL TIPS & TOES
If color isn’t your thing, embrace white nail polish instead! Look for one like this that’s creamy, smooth, and opaque—we promise, it won’t look like White Out.
