Summer ’14 Make Up Trends

As you probably know, here at Illamasqua we aren’t usually one to follow trends. However with Summer 2014 offering us some of the most versatile and diverse trends yet, we just couldn’t help indulge ourselves and share these summer beauty trends with you. We hope you enjoy exploring and creating with them as much as we do!

Bronze make up for summer is like the LBD – timeless, effortless and you really can’t go wrong. If you daren’t brave the more eccentric looks this summer, then we recommend you stick to what you know and ‘golden goddess’ yourself. With our help of course!
This summer see’s the trend take on a bohemian vibe, just in time for festival season. Channel your inner boho with bronze smoky eyes, sculpted cheeks and a sun kissed glow. Be festival ready with our versatile range of products, perfect for compact, festival packing! We recommend; Powder Eye shadow in Bronx, Bronzing Duo & Gleam in Supernatural.

The Brazil 2014 world cup is on everyone’s lips this summer and soon, so will the colour blue. Brazil is a country known for eccentricity and colour and here at Illamasqua we like to honour this way of life too.
Summer 2014 sees the outlandish Brazil style erupt into the world of beauty, with bursts of blue dominating the catwalk and soon, your face.  If there is anyone who knows how to create colour, it’s us. Take a look at our key-trend products: Lipstick in Apocalips, Eye Colouring Pencil in Debonair, Powder Eye Shadow in Victim and Intense Lip Gloss in Gender.

If there has ever been a time to release your inner Barbie, it is now; we know she is in there somewhere! Hot pink is an essential colour for a hot summer this year no matter how you wear it. As always we are here to help you on your way to pink perfection, after all we are colour and you are beauty!
Think glamour, or should I say Glamore, with our Glamore Lipstick in Luster or if you’re daring a livelier look, check out: Lipstick in Eurydice, Intense Lipgloss in Indulge, Velvet Blusher in Conviction and Nail Varnish in Collide.

Wondrous White

White is the colour of the creative this summer and with its ability to construct anything from modern monochrome to courageous cat eyes, we can see why. White can be used as a subtle accent, or to make your eyes truly pop. For the more audacious of you, use white to create a graphic quality to your make up look.
Create any of these looks with: Powder Eye Shadow in Sex, Pure Pigment in Beguile, Precision Ink in Scribe and Eye Colouring Pencil in Elate.

If you’re inspired by these trends as much as we are, remember to share your look with us using the #Illamasqua here – we can’t wait to see what you create!
