Getting Ready For Summer: Five Top Beauty Tips

make up in mirror

Let’s spruce up your makeup routine with hot beauty trends for 2017. There’s always something new around the corner in beauty – one of the many reasons we love it – and we’re sure these fresh looks will win you over.


Perfectly polished

To achieve perfect, selfie-ready skin, it’s okay to cheat a little… That’s why we’re loving the new trend for makeup that acts like an Instagram filter. From primer to powder, seek out products that give you a flawless, camera-ready base.


For added glow to really get people loving your Insta posts, try mixing illuminator drops into your foundation too, and blending a little on your cheekbones.


Gym bunny beauty

With all those mirrors, it’s not always fun to go bare-faced at the gym. So we’re glad that smudge-proof, squat-proof, spin-proof makeup is now officially a thing. Check out Primark’s very affordable, workout-friendly range. There’s everything from eyeliners and mascaras to lip balms and foundation sticks, all designed to withstand sweat. Plus, each beauty item is under £2.50, so you can’t go wrong…


Gamer glamour

Are you a closet gamer? Time to share your love of all things nerdy – did you know that, after beauty tutorials, the most watched topic on YouTube is gaming? So it’s lucky that brands are clocking onto this hot trend. Glamglow has delivered a future bestseller with their Sonic-themed firming treatment. Time to level up and invest in this beauty!


Good vibes

With fake news flying around the internet and the world becoming increasingly unpredictable, it’s no wonder that channeling positivity is a big trend this year. For instant calm at your fingertips, reach for the new Mindful Manicure polish from Nails Inc. It’s a beautiful rosy shade, infused with real crystals known for their ‘healing, thought-clarifying’ powers. We could do with a little of that in our lives!


Probiotic creams

We’ve all heard of friendly bacteria for your insides, but what about including them as part of your skincare routine? They’re great for your gut lining, so it makes sense that they should help to strengthen your skin too, and calm inflammation. We’re particularly keen to try the new creams from big US brands Glowbiotics and Tula, launched this spring, to give our complexions a probiotic boost.
