Have you tried these 10 #summer #beauty #trends yet?

Summertime is a great opportunity to experiment with wild and wacky trends – some definitely more edgy than others. Why not take the opportunity to give your regular beauty routine a total overhaul, even for just one or a few occasions? We’ve narrowed down (which wasn’t easy!) the top 10 trends that you should try if you haven’t already.

Taut Top Knot
Here’s a mane mantra to live by: When in doubt, pile it high. This summer, when pulling your tresses up into a high bun, brush it sleek and wrap it tight, so that it’s a little less lazy and a little more beautiful ballerina.

Fluorescent Lips
Pack a vibrant fruit-punch to your pout. It’s a shockingly simple way to stand out from the crowd. Just remember this cardinal rule of cosmetics — when your lips are this eye-catching, be sure to tone down everything else.

Gilded Eyes

A gorgeous gilded gaze very well may be the easiest way to draw attention to your eyes without being obvious. Cover lids in a soft golden hue to make peepers pop in an easy, breezy, ethereal way.

Pastel Digits
This season, muted nails read darling and dreamy, and flirty and feminine — not Gran’s tea party. Between mint, cornflower, lilac, rose, peach, and daffodil, there’s a plethora of pretty pastel polish picks that are just as girlish as they are sophisticated.

My Little Pony Strands
If you’re bold enough, have a little fun with your hair by adding colorful highlights or dipping the ends in a vibrant hue. Be it teal, tomato, fuchsia, lavender, or canary, you just need to find a shade that works with your complexion.


Turquoise Tint
Contrary to popular belief, this color happens to be one of the most versatile shades on the shelves. Liberally dust this hue across your eyelids, or lightly line your lower rim. Make it subtle and smoky, or go dark and dynamic — either way, you’ve got a bevy of stunning options available to you. Decisions, decisions.

The Tangerine Pout
Pantone’s Color of the Year has made its way from a swatch suggestion to a mainstream mandate. Give classic cherry red a run for its money, but if it’s a bit too bold for you, tone it down and opt for its more subdued color cousin, coral, instead.

The Down-Do
We love it when locks can look laid-back and luxe at the same time. Toss the tools, brush, and comb — you won’t need them for this hairstyle. Just grab a few bobby pins and create an imperfectly perfect loose look that’s all your own. The point is to keep it messy, so flyaways and loose strands are totally encouraged. Just keep twisting and pinning until you create a coif you love.

Lacquered Locks
Quite the opposite of bed-head, slicked back wet-head, as seen on countless runways, gives stunning results.  When it’s scorching hot outside, why bother spending time tussling with your tresses when you can palm a handful of lightweight scrunching gel through your damp strands for a simple but stunning result? The fresh-out-of-the-water has never been so alluring.

Neon Nails
Here’s a fun way to get in on this season’s Lite-Brite trend without going overboard — doll up your digits in a flamboyant neon hue that reads more Jem and The Holograms than total ’80s-fashion reject. Pair it with an all-white outfit for statement making appeal.

Bourjois Lips and Nails for Summer 2012

It’s summertime, and with that comes gorgeous shades available not only in clothing, but also in makeup to soften and protect skin, yet amplify your glow! Then, of course, you have playful nail colours to enhance every style and mood! I must say, Bourjois is really taking the cake this season with some fab innovations.


Bourjois Paris presents Effet 3D Max in 8 fruity shades with a pomegranate-enriched double action formula that not only promotes long hold (8 hours!), but also benefits skincare with AHA in the pomegranate extract with smoothing and regenerating properties to make your lips naturally more beautiful!

You won’t need to touch up, but I guarantee you’ll have to ‘cuz you’ll be licking your smackers all day long!

Colours are available in Beige Mellow, Brun Delight, Orange Fruity, Rose Watery, Rose Yummy, Prune Exquisite, Grenade Juicy and Rouge Sunny.

Betcha can’t pick just one!


Give into your dreams and fantasies… enter the colourful and sparkling world of Paris Bubble Chic, the NEW So Laque Ultra Shine nail enamel collection from Bourjois!

With 5 new high fashion shades, directly inspired by the most beautiful catwalks, Paris Bubble Chic elegantly and cheerfully combines the softest pastels with the brightest colours for a daring and contrasting collection.

To boost your creativity and for stunningly simple “nail art”, BOURJOIS is launching the double-ended nail brush and So Matt top coat, two new friends to arty manicures!

One end is specially designed for “French manicures”: an angled brush inspired by the Bourjois French Manicure brush for very easy and flawless application; a useful ally to create countless two-toned French manicures.

The other is a precision end: an ultra-fine brush for meticulous nail art patterns, the summer’s continued trend.

For optimised use, Bourjois proposes an explanatory diagram on the pack, as well as example of make-up results with different nail art patterns and colour combinations.

The Bourjois tip:For ease of use with the Double-Ended Brush, pour a drop of enamel on a small palette and work like an artist!

Bourjois presents So Matt, the frosted effect top coat. Drying in record time, it offers silky protection and a 100 % matt finish to all nail enamels.

Its highly graphic decor with fluorescent accents dresses a transparent bottle with black top, to help you spot your nails’ new arty friend at a glance!

The Bourjois tip: So Matt is used to make patterned manicures or effects with one single varnish colour! On very bright enamel, red for example, why not imagine a monochrome red manicure: glossy on the tip of the nail and matt on the rest? Just apply So Matt up to the edge of the French manicure!
