Spring and Summer 2014 Makeup Trends - QC Makeup Academy

If you want to become a successful makeup artist, it is important to stay on top of the latest fashion trends in the field. Every year in the world’s most fashionable cities, designers put out their new collections on the runway which signal the latest make-up, hairstyle, and clothing trends for the season ahead. 2014 is poised to be the year of glam, with make-up looks reflecting bold features and understated enchantment in the forefront

Here are the Spring and Summer 2014 makeup trends your clients will be dying to imitate.

Iridescent Eyes

White, pale pinks and shimmering pastels are the go-to eye colors of the year. Paired with white eyeliner, this trend creates an ethereal, otherworldly look that radiates pure elegance.

Berry Beautiful Lips

Berry lips were huge in 2013, and it looks like they are around to stay. Instead of matching the darker hue with heavy eyes, try sticking with nude and natural colors on the rest of the face for the ultimate pop of color.

Big and Bold Eyebrows

If there is one must-have accessory for 2014, it is a big and dark eyebrow. Supermodels such as Cara Delevingne have brought eyebrows the attention they deserve, and as any make-up artist knows, a good eyebrow can make or break the style. Shop around for the latest brow definers and powders, and give your clients that HD look.

Dramatic Lines

Everyone loves a good cat eye, and this year the craze meets daytime. Don’t be afraid to throw on liquid eyeliner for lunch, or change it up using bright blues and oranges instead of the traditional black.

Gilded Goddess

Bring out the gilded goodies. Gold, bronze, and silver are this year’s big winners. Paint those lids like they are precious metal, and don’t skimp on the bronzer. This year, expect to see all your favorite A-list celebrities walking the red carpet, glimmering and golden from head to toe.

To refresh, simple and clean looks are a must this Spring and Summer season but can be accentuated with berry hued lips. Grow out the eyebrows, wearing them natural but defined. For a night on the town, bring out the glitz and don’t be afraid to paint on dramatic cat eyes before the sun sets.
