5 Makeup Trends You Don’t Want to Miss This Summer!

Weekends packed with weddings, late night drinks, last-minute getaways to the beach or an afternoon spent in the park – it’s no wonder that summer is our most beloved time of the year. As you rotate those jeans out for your swimsuit, take a moment to revamp your makeup drawer too!

So, what’ going to be getting you all those fabulous Instagram likes this summer? We are expecting shimmery hues and coral lips this season. Here are our suggestions below on how to rock the look this summer – no matter if you’re going to the office or out grabbing drinks with friends.

1) Summer Sheen

Master that highlighted cheekbone look with some “summer sheen.” While it definitely includes some shimmer some shimmer, a full-face glow is what you’re going for. To achieve that ‘summer sheen,’ try the H&H Luminizer Stick for a strobing effect on the cheekbones and down the center of the nose. Our H&H Baked Fusions are a fusion of colors that act as a blush and/or bronzer that provide a luminescent glow while adjusting to each individual’s skin tone.

2) Pops of Coral

Instead of flaunting a heap of lip colors in shades of pink, purple and red, this summer season will be all about simplicity and cutting back on your collection, with a bright and easy coral. Try our NEW H&H Plumping Glosses that are a ultra-hydrating gloss that plumps with sheer color and high shine, to instantly create the appearance of fuller, softer and more youthful-looking lips.

3) Pigmented Cheeks

Ever looked at pictures of your mom’s old high school photos and were mortified at her heavy blush habit? Well we officially give you permission to go big again with your blush this summer. Our H&H Powder Blushes – available in 4 colors, provide a silky-smooth finish that glide on and blend naturally, to create a healthy, radiant glow. (Did we also mention that they are all gluten free, alcohol free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic non comedogenic oil free, paraben free and cruelty free?

4) Sun-Kissed Palette

We recommend blending different shades of hues for your lid colors (matte & shimmers). Summer is a fun season to experiment with different colors and pigments, so why not try our NEW H&H Duo and Quad Eyeshadow Palettes. Create your own look with our new magnetic eyeshadow pans and mix & match from 24 colors! Each mineral pigment blends easily and provides a long-lasting effect.

5) Dewy Skin

Between the sweat, salt and sun your skin is going to feel a bit dirtier than usual during the summer. So, try a simpler foundation such as our H&H Brightening CC Cream that is lightweight, oil free, color correcting and includes SPF 20.

Also, to help remove excess oil and refine pores, try our favorite H&H Vitamin Enriched Hydrating Mist for a quick mist over your face. It also provides a rich blend of antioxidants to brighten dull, tired skin and refine your complexion.

Top Makeup Spring Color Trends for 2018, According to Makeup Artists

As weather warms up, its time to not only switch over your wardrobe, but transform you makeup routine as well. Play up the spring moods and temperatures and enjoy these subtle changes to your eye shadow, lips and foundation as you create a warmer, softer and fresher look.

Here’s a guide to trends you might see – and try for yourself!

Pastels with a Pop of Color

Pastels for spring are not a new concept but you’ll definitely see more muted shades this season. We recommend using a light wash of pink on your lips (Try our Liquid Lipstick in Kitten Pink) and some blush (Our Powder Blush in the color Peony) to give your cheeks a pink flushed look.

The Return of Twiggy Lashes

Natural lashes are on their way out this season, and in with bold, 1960s Twiggy-inspired eye looks. To pull it off at home, begin with a thickening fiber-based mascara (H&H Science Lash Thickener) followed by a bold, volumizing mascara (H&H XLXL Mascara). Don’t be afraid to do more than one layer of mascara too!

Bright Colors in Surprising Places

In addition to the spring pastel hues, bold eye shadow designs have become braver this season. Give your eyes an ‘instant wakeup call’ by trying a bit of color under your eye’s water line and only at the inner corners. Try our new Eyeshadow Kit that you can build your own kit and choose your own colors!

Ultraviolet Eyes

With purple being the Pantone’s color of the year, utilize it as a way to draw dramatic attention to your eyes. Smudge a purple eyeliner (H&H Gel Liner in the color Florentine)

The Return of the Bullet Lipstick

Move aside lip balms, glosses and stains! 2018 marks the return of the traditional bullet lipstick. This means going back to your mom’s trusted purse staple. Matte is still ruling the roost but more wearable formulas give the lips more life than the flat mattes of winter. Look for bright pinks, corals and beige nudes. We recommend our Luxury Matte Lipstick, Satin Lipstick and Cream Lipstick lines.

The Ultimate Skin Care Routine for Teens

Finding the right teen skin care regimen can be overwhelming. Whether you are at the grocery store, mall or surfing online, you are bombarded with acne products that claim to clear up your skin! So, where do you start? Knowing your skin type and using a daily skin care regimen that includes your essential steps is the first important step to maintaining clear skin. 

​In addition to this, you also need to be using products that are effective and contain the right strength of active ingredients. Our H&H Science Teen Line contains a complete line of solution oriented treatments exclusively for teens that are medical grade. They are stronger and more effective than anything you can find over-the-counter or online. Finding the right Acne Kit for you starts with knowing your skin type and level of sensitivity. From there, you will be able to find the perfect skin care regimen for you! 

Step 1 – What is Your Skin Type?

Before you can care for your skin and keep it healthy, you must know your type- your skin type, that is! 
How-To-Identify-Your-Skin-Type.jpgDry Skin – Dry Skin is usually dull, rough and scaly and it can be itchy. Normal Skin – Normal Skin is usually smooth and even in texture with no visible blemishes, red spots or flaky patchesCombination Skin – Combination Skin typically has an oily T-Zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry skin elsewhere. Pores are usually larger and blackheads and whiteheads are common.

Oily Skin – Oily Skin types usually have a shiny complexion that is acne-prone. Pores are larger and open and blackheads and whiteheads are common.

Step 2 – What is Your Level of Sensitivity?

Step 3 – Find the Perfect Acne Kit for You!

What is Next? 

After finding the kit that is right for your skin type and level of sensitivity, it is important to know exactly what your daily skin care regimen should include, in order to fight acne or maintain clear skin. Cleansing daily is essential to removing dirt, oil and dead skin. After cleansing, a treatment, such as gentle exfoliants and acne treatments, should be used to treat pimples and all oily areas of the face. Following cleansing and treating your skin, hydration is next in line! Using an ultra-lightweight moisturizer will help maintain a healthy pH. As the last step in your regimen, it is important to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays with a  lightweight, oil free sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher.

 

What to Pack for Any Summer Weekend Getaway

From lounging poolside or soaking up the sun by the ocean or lake, there’s no better reason to get out of town (and away from your computer and work routine.)

If you are also looking to save some money, time, and avoid a luggage mishap, packing light for these small getaways is the way to go. With TSA’s 3.4-ounces limit, you might have to leave behind your jumbo-size bottle of shampoo at home. The good news? H&H Science has your go-to list below for summer-inspired and travel-sized beauty products for your body, face and more.

Need ideas? Here’s what to pack in your carry-on this summer so you can spend your weekends hitting the shore and running in style.

A Purse-Friendly Cleansing Device

Packing light doesn’t always mean sacrificing comforts. If you love thoroughly cleansing your face with a face-cleansing device every night, consider swapping your builder gadget with our H&H Sonic Facial Cleansing Device. Small in size but powerful in action, this device not only is self-cleaning, but it also removes dirt and imperfection from your pores without taking a ton of precious real estate in your luggage. You can use this Sonic Device 300x before it runs out of power, so feel free to power up and leave the charger at home.

Your Entire Skin Care Routine – in TSA-Approved Sizes

Prioritizing your skin’s health (even on vacation) is totally fine. Taking the time to empty all of your skin care products into the travel-approved size bottles is such a hassle. The good news? All of the regular-sized products in our H&H Anti-Photoaging Systems are in TSA-Approved sizes. This travel- friendly set (comes in Normal and Sensitive) has your full skin care regimen (the BB Cream doubles as makeup and SPF). 

Makeup Multitaskers: The Nude Kit

Instead of packing multiple kits and palettes in your makeup bag, consider our 3-in-one H&H Nude Kit. Complete with 9 neutral eyeshadows, 1 highlight, 1 contour and 2 blush colors.

Your Sun-Kissed Tan: Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid Travel Size

Even if you’re going to the beach, it’s great to have your sunless-tanner with you to maintain that refreshed and sun-kissed glow. Fake Bake’s Liquid Flawless Self Tanner is now travel size. And BONUS – it comes with a FREE professional application mitt. (LIMITED TIME ONLY – now available in-store only at H&H Science).
