The writing is on the wall, lemonade is the next big makeup trend for Summer 2018. You did say you wanted to do away with all those boring neutrals didn’t you? Well, this Summer it looks like juicy bright shades of yellow and pink might just be the call of duty on Instagram. Just recently indie brand, Dominique Cosmetics, teased that they would be launching a lemonade inspired palette and half an hour ago Nicol Concilio has revealed a small sneak peek of an upcoming Smashbox Collaboration that appears to be citrus inspired. Lemonade? Juices? Who knows but it appears it’ll be fruity and bright.
Etude House released a Juice Bar Eyeshadow Palette last year and this year they have a follow up peach palette called Peach Farm Eyes for Spring 2018. At the moment though most US brands are playing Spring fairly safe with launches from Too Faced like the It Just Comes Naturally Collection. But as we head into Summer 2018 we have a good chance of seeing some fun, playful shades of color.
Needless to say if this is where Smashbox is headed it’s a refreshing change for the brand who keeps things fairly safe. It’s not everyday that Smashbox decides to throw a fun, funky eyeshadow palette our way. Nicol’s teaser image looks quite playful and bright. So, we’ll see how things go in this direction.
I do know that one of my favorite eyeshadow combinations is fuchsia and yellow. The two shades flatter each other beautifully. If you have any yellows or bright pinks in your collection I urge you to pair them ASAP and be delighted at the results. I do think Smashbox might go a more traditional though with yellows, peaches, and hey, maybe a splash of lime too!
And of course, Lemonade would be an easy enough hashtag to get going viral. I can totally see this becoming some sort of insta-fabulous makeup trend across social media.
So, if you’re one of the neutral naysayers out there you might just be delighted with upcoming collections.
My prediction is we’re going to see a lot of bright, fun yellows this year.
