Not to be too dramatic, but odds are good that you want to look cool and chill this summer. It’s fine! I get it! We all want to be those Instagram famous models with perfect skin and even more perfect makeup looks (sometimes, at least). There is nothing wrong with wanting to rock the trends this summer, in fact, I encourage you to do it. If wearing trendy and cool products makes you feel a lot better and more confident about yourself, then that’s awesome. We don’t have to be 100 percent unique all the time, and sometimes we just want to use the things that the ~Cool Girls~ are wearing, you know? Which makes sense, since we are actually all ~Cool Girls~ amirite?!
Anyway, it can be hard to be on top of the trends and know exactly what every girl will have in her bag this summer. You want to try out the best of the best, but how do you know what is actually going to be the best? How do you keep up with the cool girl trends that will be all over your timeline over the next few months? WELL, you’ve come to the right place, since here are all of the trending and popular looks that you need to try out this summer in order to be the Next Cool Girl.
Glossier HaloscopeI thought that Glossier was a cult, and it sort of is, but it's the good kind, so it's fine. Glossier Haloscope is a highlighter in convenient glide-on stick form, and it’s also what every Instagram model wears all the time. It gives a glossy and shimmery look that is obvious while still managing to look natural, and will give you the glow you’ve been trying to achieve for the last few months Glossier, $22
