The trendsetter: S/S ’14 beauty trends + giveaway


Fresh off NYFW, spring/summer 2014 trends aren’t just limited to fashion.  Magazine editors, makeup artists, stylists, etc. all look to the runways to see what the hottest trends in beauty will be for the upcoming season.

Liner of all shapes and sizes, tangerine lipstick, the ponytail, and bare illuminated skin were some of the looks making their way down the runways.

If you have picked up a copy of the March issue of FASHION magazine or Elle Canada‘s Spring/Summer 2014 Beauty Trend Report you would have noticed P&G Beauty’s Spring Beauty Trend Report with nine different looks by Pantene Pro-V consulting stylist Justin German and CoverGirl makeup pro Amelie Ducharme that can be easily recreated at home using CoverGirl, Pantene, and Olay products.

Us Beauty United bloggers were given the challenge of DIYing our favourite look from their Looking Glass YouTube page, and although I had a few favourites, I went with Wave Rave, which has bright luminous skin with lived-in waves and a brown smoky eye.

This look is super easy to recreate, watch the video above for a detailed description of how to do everything.  Also, if you wanted to recreate this look yourself, here is a handy shopping list of everything you will need.

  • CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup (I used L4)
  • CoverGirl TruBlend Fixstick Concealer (I used L1)
  • CoverGirl TruMagic Luminizer
  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadow in Coffee Shop
  • CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Golden Pink
  • Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Silky Moisture Whip
  • Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray


Since the model is way darker than me, I did modify the look a bit. I chose to pick up CoverGirl’s TruMagic The Sunkisser Bronzing Balm instead of The Luminizer, as I actually used the white shadow from the quad as my highlight (I prefer a silver highlight to a golden one).
