Swim Week Beauty Buzz: 3 Trends to Try

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week just wrapped up in Miami, and we’ve got the scoop on the hautest beauty trends, straight from the runways!

1.Poolside-Perfect Hair Accessories
Up the ante on your run-of-the-mill poolside dos with these accessories spotted on the catwalk.

2. Sandy Hues
Neutral shades provide a chic, sophisticated warm-weather alternative to the bright neon colors usually associated with summertime beauty.

3. Miami Metallics
Metallic eyes are the glam alternative to other shadow palettes; gunmetal and smoky eyes are the ideal way to set off your tan after a day at the beach.

Get the Look: For a foolproof metallic smoky eye, swipe your lids with COVERGIRL’s New Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Charcoal, use a darker shade like Molten Black on the lash line, and add a touch of Scorching Cocoa to your crease.
