Summer’s Hottest Beauty Trends
Although Tess Cash is a native to southeastern North Carolina, travel is her true inspiration. Beautiful locations and rich cultures influence her unique, but wearable looks. As a lifelong artist, Tess found her joy as a professional makeup artist. For over 8 years, she’s been committed to making people beautiful and recently founded her own business, Meraki Beauty. We reached out to Tess to find out what she thinks are the top beauty trends of summer.
In the dog days of summer, the last thing your want to do is put on a ton of makeup just to have it melt off as soon as you step outside. Two looks I love for this time of year are glossy lids and a vibrant colored mascara. The trick to glossy lids is to start with an all-over champagne shadow. Dab a touch of vaseline on the lids and finish with a waterproof mascara, and the look is sealed for hours.
The colored mascara is a fun and subtle look appropriate for all ages. We used Butter London, Electralash in Indigo Punk.
Nontouring is also a trend I’m loving for hot summer days. Start with a tinted moisturizer, like Beauty Counter’s, Dew. I love this one because it’s sheer but has non chemical sunscreen. Dab a touch of highlighter, cream or powder to the cheeks and you’re out the door.
