Interestingly enough, I have been dying to try this trend. The doll look is very popular in Japan with what’s called the Lolita school girl style. Many U.S. fans of anime and manga are increasingly cosplaying as these Japanese doll figures.
Go for false lashes that fan out, dewy makeup and romantic hair. This look is great for date night or just dressing up for fun.

Who doesn’t want to look like they have been tanning along the French Riveria or relaxing in Malibu? Being a beach babe is what makes it summer! You don’t have to expose yourself to the sun with this makeup trend.
The key is applying your bronzer to the high points of your face. This means cheeks, along the jawline to your chin and your forehead. Then go over your cheeks with a rosy blush or any blush color you like. I sometimes like to add a touch of blush to the entire ridge of my nose to elongate it.

With the start of summer, drama is definitely in the air. Add a thick dark kohl liner to rims of your eyes, top and bottom. The thicker the more dramatic. For the smokey eye look, use an eye brush and dark eye shadow to fill in from brow to the edge your eyes. I love the smokey eye look because of how glam it looks especially for night events.
Bright Retro Face

Bright or high pigmentation on lips and eyes, even cheeks are the summer’s biggest trend. It was Jewel tones last Fall, now it’s brights. I think bright colors are so different, it gives a very playful vibe.
Look for brights almost neon mixed with fluorescent colors. You do not have to match eyes to lips. Have fun and go for different colors for eyes and lips. But be sure to keep your hair classic retro.
Metallic Foil Eyes

Talk about stepping outside the box. I have seen embellishments on the lips but never like Metallic Foil on the eyes for that matter! Play up the funky metallics with colorful hair tips or dress up with a rocker chic look – Faux leather leggings + leather jacket.
