2. Long Bobs

Emma Stone’s Sixties-inspired bob is going to be huge as the groovy decade becomes one of the biggest influences on autumn trends. If you fancy getting one yourself, ask your hairdresser to crop your locks just above your shoulders. If you’re feeling daring, get a fringe too to complete the look. Bobs tend to look edgier if they’re worn messy or wavy like Jennifer Lawrence’s cropped ‘do.

3. Golden Eyes

Smoky eye make-up has been given a metallic makeover as celebs including Keira Knightley and Jessica Alba add glistening eye shadows to their beauty look. Great for the evening, it’ll give the overall feeling of bronzed skin, so you can spend less time topping up your tan and more time getting ready for that big event you’ve been waiting for! If you’re not a fan of eye shadow, add a thin trace of gold liner just above your black eyeliner for a far more subtle look.

4. The Bronze Effect

While it’s too hot to top up your tan, you’re no doubt still going to want a beach glow like Kim Kardashian’s throughout summer, and there are ways to achieve it without even having to break a sweat! Highlighters and bronzers will make your skin glow while also helping you to get the cheekbones you’ve always wanted! Add highlighting cream to the tops of your cheeks just below your eyes to get a glowing look. Then finish by giving your face a once-over with your favourite bronzer.

5. Lips That Pop
Summertime usually evokes the colour-lusting vivacious diva in all of us, and a full and bright lip is the right way to unleash the vivid summer spirit. Olivia Wilde and Demi Lovato have often been spotted sporting neon lips during the summer months. To perfect the look, opt for fuchsia or orange shades, or if you’re really daring go for something more outlandish such as purple or green. This ready-to-go make-up trick is a definite head-turner!

6. Feeling Peachy 

Give your cheeks a radiant glow with the season’s current favourite colour, peach. It’s a gorgeous shade that suits any skin tone and gives your face the perfect summer bloom. Join the ranks of starlets such as Karlie Kloss and Miranda Kerr who are often seen with a peachy stroke of perfection on their cheeks. Ideal for day and night, the blush will definitely add charm to your look.
