Summer Beauty Trends of 2013

Hey Barbizon of Akron! There is still plenty of summer left to go around! Check out our favorite trends for the summer of 2013. Try some of the out and comment on our Facebook page which are your favorites!

Colorful Liner: Try using a colored eyeliner. You can use it all the way around the eyes, just in the corners, or use it just on your waterlines. Liquid liner will give you the most vibrant color. Gel liners aren't always as vibrant but they give you more control and can be out on a bit thicker than liquid. Try out both to see which works better for you!

Pink Lips: Want to walk out the door but still look like you've put some effort into your look? Try wearing a bright pink lipstick. It goes best with a nude eye. Wearing a lot of eye makeup with the pink lip could have you looking more like a clown from the rodeo, so keep it simple!

Pink Cheeks: Become subtly flushed while still owning that natural look by brushing on some light pink blush. Since your face can be more red in the summer heat, wearing a pink blush can help tone it down while still giving you that healthy glow.

Red Matte: Red matte lips are all the rage this summer. Red lips are always classic, but if your face is glistening in the heat, a glossy red lip can be overpowering or just scream "greasy!" Go matte for that classic beauty look in the summer.

Contour: Bronzed, contoured cheekbones have made it big this summer! Suck in your cheeks and apply bronzer to the very top of where your skin sinks in, or right underneath the apples of your cheeks. This will create more defined cheekbones and can make your face appear slimmer.

2013 can still be your year! Own it with style by trying each of these trends and seeing which ones work fro you. Shine on, Barbizon of Akron!
