Whether you’re hitting the beach or catching rays by the pool, stay up to date on the newest summer beauty trends that will keep you looking cool during those endless summer days.
Keep your eyes the focus by popping some color on your lids. Opt for an aqua blue that will make any eye color stand out! Use a waterproof eyeliner pencil like the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 7L Turquoise along the lash line.
To create the illusion of a fuller lip, try using two different lipsticks. First, pick out a lipstick in any shade that strikes your fancy, then pick out a lighter version of the same shade. Need guidance? Try NARS Semi-Matte Lipsticks in both Heat Wave and Shanghai Express. Apply Shanghai Express all over lips, and then apply Heat Wave in the center of lips on both top and bottom. The lighter color in the center will give an illusion of a fuller lip.
Glittery eyes aren’t only for Coachella! Try a pop of glitter on the eyes to brighten up and add some excitement to your summer look. Try applying the glitter as winged liner, or even all over underneath the eye. Lemonhead.LA has amazing glitters that can be applied literally anywhere — and easily come off (a must with glitter).
Clean Dewy Skin
Nothing looks prettier during hot summer months then clean dewy skin. Amp up the dew by using Smashbox’s Primer Oil on the highest points of your face; cheekbones, temples, bridge of nose, brow bones, and above the lip. This creates a “highlighted” look without the shimmer and gives a super clean, dewy finish to skin.
Peach has been all the rage since Too Faced came out with their notorious Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. Stay fresh by applying peach tones on eyes, cheeks, and lips!
Flushed Eighties Cheeks
Whether you use a hot pink or orange, this trend keeps your cheeks looking high and bright. Apply by dusting a pigmented blush from the tops of your cheekbones to your temples. Sephora Collection has a variety of great blushes to choose from.
Dark lipstick colors in the summer, you ask? Yes! Grey lipstick is making its way into the summer season. To keep it fresh, make your lips the focus by using minimal eye makeup and starting with a clean dewy face. Then, try NYX’s Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Stone Fox to give your summer look an edge.
To keep your summer beauty routine easy, try using the same color for eyes, cheeks, and lips! NARS has a stick called The Multiple that is made in 20+ shades and can be used by easily sweeping the cream stick on eyes cheeks and lips. Just use the warmth of your fingers to blend the product in effortlessly for a monochromatic look.
