In the summertime when the weather is hot, you can reach right up and touch the top lalala…Well, Summer brings much more with it than catchy tunes, as a marvellous medley of new and exciting beauty collections hit the shelves, ideal to help us with our new warm-weather warpaint. So – from nail art to striking shadows – we count down the biggest and the best beauty trends this Summer.
Ladies, pack away those curling tongs, box up those rollers – this summer’s hair is set to be straight and sleek. Wave goodbye to volume and usher in sleek and straight as hair slicked to the scalp was all the rage on the Ralph Lauren, Chloe, and Miu Miu catwalks.
Now this is one trend that we in Singapore really have a heads up on. Poking its head out of the trend envelope last year, this year, nail art is back and it’s bigger than ever. With literally every salon in Singers offering various forms of nail art, tortoiseshell, studded and crystalised nails reigned supreme on the runways.
Bold and beautiful
While we love the classic smokey eye, it’s always nice to mix things up a bit in the eyelid department from time to time. This summer sees a spectrum of colour ranging from purples, greens, blues and even reds.

If there is one trend that takes more time than anything else, it’s got to be this one. Mastering “just got out of bed” natural beauty takes some perfection but get learning girls, as this is one of summer’s biggest trends. Think tousled hair, the smallest slick of mascara and just bitten lips.
If Tom Ford likes dishevelled, haphazard up-dos then you can bet your bottom dollar we will too. Seen everywhere from Tom Ford, Rochas and Giambattisa Valli – there’s a new way to fight the Singapore frizz this summer and it’s with a curly, twisted and non-perfect chignon.
And the award for this season’s most popular colour goes to: purple. On the lids, rimming the inner eye and even on the lips – it’s part goth, part rocker but full attitude.
Let this be your lipstick beauty mantra this summer: “Why speak when you can shout” Bright and bold orange shades took over at Prabal Garung and Rag&Bone. Get practising a steady hand, as with shades ranging from neon to coral- this trend calls for a perfect lashing of lip liner.

Just when you have mastered the perfect cats eye, along comes another line-tastic trend. The big sister to the cats eye, forget the flick and think bigger and bolder with angular turns and graphic twists.
While the summer glow is certainly nothing new, this summer, it finds itself more golden than ever before. Make your bronzer your best buddy, ideally in tones of apricot and peach, and get to work glowing up your t-zones and cheekbones.
Fans of falsies, get set for something new as some 60’s spirit takes over the beauty bay and false lashes find their way onto your top and bottom lids. Seen at only the most fabulously funky fashion shows including Jean-Pierre Braganza – it’s part cute doll and part sex kitten and what could be a better combination than that?
