Latest Summer 2015 Makeup Trends – Shopping + Tutorial

From the no-makeup look to bronze goddess look – check out the latest summer 2015 makeup trends! Shop the best products and learn how to get the look!

I’ve been so much into makeup lately – shopping for cosmetics, trying on new looks, checking out tutorials on YouTube and celeb makeup, and it’s been so much fun! That’s why I thought why don’t I share some of the best of Summer 2015 makeup trends with you all!

I have already covered some of the newest trends in my some of my recent posts that featured the bronze look, orange lip and so on, but I didn’t go through them in detail. So I thought why not take this opportunity to discuss those! Ready? Let’s go!!


Summer Makeup Trend #1

The Bronze Look

I featured outfit shopping ideas based on the theme ‘The Bronze Goddess‘ in my post Shopping and Dressing for a Pool Party | 6 Casual Summer Looks, so if you need inspiration to dress with this look, check that out!

The bronzer has been in for a long time, but this season, the in-look from 2015 makeup trends need skin that looks naturally sun-kissed and glowy. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore this look in a photo shoot for harper by Harper’s Bazaar, May 2015.


This look has been seen on Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian, and more importantly, on a promo image from the new makeup range Tom Ford launched called Soleil Summer 2015 collection. Check it out!



For this look, use a good foundation and concealer that makes your skin look flawless, lots of bronzer (obviously), not too much blush, eye shadow palette that includes browns, golds and bronze, and sheer peachy rose lip shades. Here are some I like:

Diorskin Nude Tan Matte Powder with Kabuki Brush – Christian Dior


Metal Powder for Lips and Cheek #91201 – Makeup For Ever


Sheer Lip Color in Skinny Dip – Tom Ford


Metallic Eye-Shadow in Golden Peach and Naked Bronze – Tom Ford


Summer Makeup Trend #2

The Nude Look

There’s the bronze, and then there’s the nude. Natural-looking, but yet flawless. No glow, no dew, no falsies, no reds. This season has been all extreme for makeup lovers, some want to go all out, and wear all the products they own, and others want to keep it minimal. It all depends on your personal taste and the occasion of course, but the nude look is super-in right now. Kendall Jenner wore it on the cover of GQ, June 2015 Turkey issue, and for a July 2015 photo shoot with her sis Kylie. Take a look!



Super gorgeous. Keep it up, girls!


This look doesn’t mean that you don’t wear makeup at all. On the contrary, you need lots of products to make it seem like you have a great flawless finish, but yet no makeup on. Lots of tricks and technique. The idea is to spend as much time on your base as possible, so that it looks natural and undone, but all your flaws are covered, and all the tones look even. The trick is to not let it look cakey. And after that it’s your call, you can go sans-eyeliner, with just a little mascara, or you can wear a sheer pink lipstick or balm.

When I go for a no-makeup look on casual days, I prefer a light-coverage foundation and concealer, with compact face powder. Here are some of my recommendations:

Infallible foundation – L’Oreal

Diorskin Star Concealer – Christian Dior


Diorskin Forever Compact  – Christian Dior


High Impact Mascara – Clinique


Sheer Lip Color in Skinny Dip – Tom Ford


This tutorial by celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge my favorite tutorial on no makeup-makeup look.

It’s from 2011 so she’s done a matte look, but in 2015, I would add a subtle contouring and highlighting. Just a tad! Something like this 🙂

Hope you enjoyed these looks! I have a couple more, which I’ll write about next time. Cya!!
