The world of skincare and beauty is ever-evolving and there’s always a hot new ingredient or holy grail product hitting the market. We’ve gone through coconut oil, hyaluronic acid, CBD, vitamin C and niacinamide, and I won’t lie, even as a skincare enthusiast it can be tough keeping up with all the latest trends. Of course, the different techniques of applying skincare and makeup are constantly evolving as well. Thankfully, we can look to social platforms such as TikTok and Instagram where knowledge about new trends is at our fingertips. Without further ado, let’s take a quick look at some of the beauty trends that would be perfect for summer.
The pastel eyeliner
Summer is traditionally the season of pastels and this year won’t be any different. However, why restrict it solely to your wardrobe? The great news is that everyone from Chanel to Glossier is coming out with flirty pastel tones for the warmer months, so you should be able to create the look of your dreams at any price point.
The instant facelift concealer

The viral blush technique
Let’s will file this under “hacks that shouldn’t work, but somehow turn out way better than expected.” Using a red lipstick for your contouring is a bold move, but after topping it with a light coverage foundation you’ll end up with a romantic blushed look.

Fake tanned lips
TikTok truly does encourage everyone to get more creative. This beauty hack makes use of a fake tan to tint the outer edges of your lips to make them look fuller and more natural-looking.

Ice facials are great for eliminating redness, shrinking pores, helping to depuff and stimulate circulation. While some may prefer to use plain ice cubes on their faces, the fancier ice globe facial massagers make it easier to target specific areas of the face.

They were big last year and TikTok has decided that faux freckles are still going strong this year! Freckles do tend to become more prominent due to sun exposure and, given that we’re all basically striving for a sun-kissed look, it makes sense that it’s a recurring trend.
