I’m absolutely loving white this summer! All white is one of the summers biggest trends not only in fashion, but in makeup too. White clothing is classy yet summery and fresh, while the addition of white makeup gives that summer glow and pop to your look.

I adore white summer dresses at this time of the year. Mango have a huge sale on at the moment and they have some gorgeous white dresses. I’ve got my eye on a few! Aside from dresses, layering (as ever) and texturing with whites are major trends this summer.

White makeup is not as drastic as you might think! There are lovely ways to use white makeup to give that extra pop and highlight to your complexion and it can be applied on a really natural base to add that bit of definition to your look.

White eyeliner is a simple touch that adds brightness and subtle definition. Blake Lively has been using white eyeliner in a few of her looks recently (such as her look at the Met Ball) by applying it to the inner eye giving them more definition and making them look wider. Urban decay is usually my go-to for bold, creamy colours and their white eyeliner is no different. I recently bought a white eyeliner from Barry M which I love! It is really similar to the Urban Decay liner. Look out for my post coming soon on ways to apply white eyeliner!

What about the classic white nails. The easiest and most subtle way to show off some white is by nail lacquer! Nails Inc colours are always gorge but in particular their white shade (Floral Street Polish) is really nice and opaque. Fancy a white lip? You could go all out and be daring with a white lip-shade . I haven’t seen too many white lipsticks, as they are usually limited edition or part of a collection for most brands, however MAC do a lip tint in opaque white which is similar. I’m not sure I could pull this off personally… or maybe I just don’t have the guts!

Leave black behind this summer and go for a bit of white!

I hope you enjoy a few of my picks for this trend!

Love Nimisha
