Hot Makeup Looks for Summer
What makeup should you wear during the summer and how should your routine change? Here are some tips on how to create different makeup looks for summer.
With the summer season comes golden tans, sandals, and sundresses. To finish off your summer look, you need the perfect summer makeup. Should you pile it on during the summer or go au naturale?
1. Beach Fabulous
Here is a great look for a girl that spends much of her time at the beach, by the pool, or just wants to show off her glorious tan as her best accessory. For this look, you only need a few things.
Use a very light, gentle foundation, just to even up your skin tone. I would suggest a powder as it gives the most natural look. Apply a bit of bronzer to the apples of your cheeks, forehead, and nose to enhance your sunkissed look and dust a small amount of gold or bronze eyeshadow to your lids. As always, adding mascara to your lashes will complete your look. If you want, throw on a little lip stain or gloss and you are ready to hit the beach!
2. Color Queen
For the fun-loving, experimental girl, you will love wearing blues and greens this summer. As the go-to colors to complete your summer look, play with them! Try lining your eyes in bright blue or dark green. Apply blue eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid to make your eyes pop. Try this trick. If your eyes are blue, wear green eye makeup. If your eyes are green, wear blue eye makeup. While it seems counter-intuitive, the opposite color really causes your eye color to be brightened and more noticeable. Its a sure makeup looks for summer hit!
3. Summer Seductive
Every girl needs to know how to create the perfect smokey summer look for a hot date or a night out with her girlfriends. The key is to stay away from blacks and grays, and go with shimmery shades like bronze, copper, and gold. This will transition your smokey eye from winter to summer. Sweep a deep gold all over your eyelid, then apply bronze or copper to the crease and outer corners. Use a brown or dark bronze eyeliner to frame your gorgeous peepers and add black mascara to your fringe. For the fair-skinned, steer away from bronze as it can sometimes look way too harsh on your creamy skin. Golds and coppers will look lovely on you.
To re-cap, your must-have makeup for this summer includes light powder foundation, bronzer, mascara, and blue, green, bronze, and gold eyeshadows and eyeliners. These few looks are by no means an exhaustive list. Try mixing and matching to see what looks you can create on your own! Use these tips as a jumping off point to find your best makeup looks for summer.
