As soon as the weekend rolls around, you’ll finally have more than five minutes to do your makeup - meaning you’ve time to try out some of this summer’s hottest trends.
To get you started, we’ve rounded up three looks that are wearable and on trend, and will take you through to Sunday, whether you’re heading out for the night, or just chilling with your lipstick stash and a self-tanning mitt.
Friday: Go for gold
There’s nothing less fashionable than burnt shoulders, so when it comes to tanning, it’s time to put in the prep.
Get skin looking golden for the weekend with a self-tanning mousse, like SunShimmer Self Tan Mousse, £7.99, which is light, foamy, and easy to blend. It gives instant colour for your Friday night look, plus an on-trend, tawny tan that develops in just 3-6 hours. And once you’ve nailed that bronzed-up base, everything you apply on top will look glowy and effortlessly fabulous.
Saturday: Kick up the colour
You’ve got some time, so play with colour on your lids. Get inspired by the hottest look on the summer catwalks, where electric blue eyeliner ruled. Expect to see this trend everywhere by autumn. To get the look, use the fine, blue tip of Magnif’Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner in Dark Side of Blue, £6.99, to line the upper lash line, then flick it up into a wing. Saturday night look, sorted.
Sunday: Reach for red
Crack out the sunglasses and red lipstick. A red pout is a classic, but make it current with a blue-toned hue, which was big news on the SS16 catwalks. This shade comes with the bonus of brightening up tired, post-night out skin instantly. Make yours the brightest lips at the picnic by applying Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Red Dynamite, £2.99, for a long-wear base, then slicking on Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in Idol Red, £6.49. This combo is total red lip goals.
