Trend Spotting: Summer 2013

We love aqua for the summer! From the soothing hues of sea glass to the bold depth of turquoise we are seeing this shade everywhere. It's a surprisingly flattering shade that looks good on almost everyone. Try a little flash of colour or go for a full smokey eye, whatever suits you best. Here are some of our favourites, pulled together to inspire you to try this fun, bold trend.

Eye Gloss in Aqua Silk

Try a layer of Aqua Eye Gloss for a sheer wash of colour. For more intensity, let it dry and add another layer. Pat with your finger to soften edges. For maximum drama, start with one layer of the Eye Gloss and top with Magic or Caribbean Eye Shadow.

PurePressed Eye Shadow in Caribbean and Magic

Use Caribbean eye shadow for a lovely aqua-inspired daytime look. For a more dramatic nighttime eye use Magic, a bold, shimmery turquoise.

24-Karat Gold Dust in Aquamarine

For sparkly fun, use 24K in Aquamarine. Try a colour-wash technique: tap some Gold Dust into the lid of its jar. Spritz your brush with Hydration Spray. Press the brush into the gold dust and then press that to your lids. Repeat until your lids are covered.

Mystikol in Aquamarine

Not willing to commit to an entire lid of turquoise? Try using an Aquamarine eyeliner to line the top and bottom lash lines. Build the colour slowly until you reach an intensity you like. For high impact, use it with the other tips to create an aqua smoky eye!
