Beauty: Summer trends to try

Hot pink lips

 When it comes to trying new beauty trends, I have to admit that I'm not the most adventurous girl. I have developed my tried and true routine (BB cream, black eyeliner, a great dose of mascara and soft pink gloss), and I'm not always in the mood to turn the things upside down in the morning.  However, this summer is one of the most colorful and fun seasons ever, and it would be such a shame to shy away from a bunch of very pretty trends (after all, I don't want to get too bored and do my makeup everyday on autopilot!). Of course, there are always exceptions (you wouldn't catch me in a "wet hair" look in public in a million years!), but these are the most beautiful and feminine looks I'm dying to try this season:

Winged eyeliner

Neon manicure (Essie's Poppy Razzi collection)

Braided updos

Top knot

Bumped-up ponytail

Pastel manicure

Peachy cheeks


  1. I am definitely loving the neon nails and the hair bun!! Cannot get enough!
    You are SO sweet! You can definitely borrow my whole outfit, in fact, I'll bring it over when I arrive for the al fresco breakfast! (hahaha - I'm grinning from ear to ear writing this) ... and to say that I look "amazing in shorts" you just don't know half the drama... I may post about it at another time. I think this was the first time I wore shorts since I don't remember when... but your comment helps boost my confidence and I appreciate it very much... heck, I might just go buy another pair of shorts! Maybe...
    Happy Wednesday!

    XOXO Dana

  2. Wow, beautiful braided updos :) and I think neon manicure is great :)
    I'm following you now :)

  3. Gorgeous hair!! Although, I've seen the bumped look for a while now, so I've been drained of that. I like my eyeliner in the winged style, very pretty!! Those polish colours are gorgeous!! Hope you have a great day :) x

  10. Winged eyeliner and braided hairdos are my favorites! :)

  11. I love pink lips- I think they're a great alternative to classic red. I'm also loving both neon and pastel nails (I have neon orange on my toes and minty green on my fingers right now, lol), and you can never ever go wrong with Essie :)

  12. Ohhh I love those neon essie colors!!! LOVE THEM! xoxo A-

  13. Love this post! I'm glad you put all this in one post---I'm going to try all these before summer is over!


  14. great pictures!!


  15. i wear winged eyeliner every day...even to work (although I make the wings shorter)! i think my eyes look so much prettier with wings :) i will need to try out the pink lip and i have been trying to get my topknot to look nice and full, but i think my hair is too fine!

  16. great tips!!

  17. I agree I'm not one to branch out to far in the beauty department either. While I don't think you'll be seeing me wearing the current neon eyeliner, I am loving some of the colorful lips!

  18. I really need to improve my hairstyling skills. I want to do a bumped-up ponytail so bad.

  19. It's always good to shake up one's make-up routine and add something new once in a while.

  20. Beauty trends are always the first ones I try - they can be the cheapest. (Seriously, less than $20 has you in all of these!) I usually buy a cheap version to try and if I REALLY like one, I'll spend money on a better brand. Neon nail polish is awesome! You get the brightest effect by putting a white nail polish under the neon color but, if you don't you just have a really bright color! Good luck trying some of these trends!

  21. I wish I could style my own hair into one of those pretty braided updos

  22. Thanks for that sweet comment on my blog. I'm now your new follower, I adore your blog! I'm obsessed with pink lipstick and bright colors for this summer :)
