Successful summer makeup looks are always hard to come by. How many times have we all dreamt of that perfect makeup glow that overcomes all the drawbacks that accompany summer, aka SWEAT. I’m here to help cure all your summer makeup problems. Here are 10 makeup looks that’ll make you glow this summer.
1. Back To Basics
A basic look is perfect for those tans that don’t matchup with your foundation. Don’t worry about spending those extra dollars on a new product, embrace your sun kissed skin and slap some fun colours on your eyelids. You’re ready for a casual ice cream date!
2. Sexy Smudge
This is perfect for transforming your usual smokey eye for a night out into a patio season look. Instead of using greys and reds, use bright colours that will make your eyes pop in a sea of basic nude looks. Rainbow is currently all the rage.
3. Exotic Eyelashes
Eyelash extensions have been all the rage this year and that’s gonna continue straight into the heat. There’s just something about the concept of having ready to go eyelashes that benefit you not only because it shaves loads of time off your morning routine, but because of the way it makes your makeup look glow.
4. Natural Nude
No makeup is more makeup. That’s definitely one of my mottos throughout the summer months. Using extensive products during those humid days leads to your face literally melting. Using no makeup or nude colours prevents other people from questioning your makeup skills or having a panic attack when looking in the mirror in an amusement parks bathroom.
5. Wings For Weeks
Winged Eyeliner is everything and I rarely complete a look without it. Finding that perfect liquid liner that’ll give you that matte glow can be a little tricky at times. But when you do, that wicked wing will compliment any summer makeup looks you have in mind.
6. Hello Highlight
Highlight, Highlight, Highlight. What is even a makeup look without that cheekbone glow? Highlight is perfect for the summer months where…sweat…is just inevitable. That shimmering powder will help make your makeup looks less sticky and more dewy.
7. Lolli-pop Lips
Lipstick can be tough. Especially when it’s constantly rubbing off on your underlip when you eat. If this is something that happens to you, I definitely recommend trying the staining method. Rub some pigment into the middle of your lips and slowly spread it out towards the edges. You’ll be all set to enjoy all that summer sugar without worrying about lipstick smudges.
8. Bold Brow
Eyebrows frame your face and that’s just facts. So bolding up your brow with any of these makeup looks will improve your beauty guru skills by like a 100 instagram followers. Try using a powder instead of a liquid brow pencil, you’ll thank me when your eyebrows aren’t melting. Insta influencer here you come!
9. DIY Freckles
Freckles weren’t always cool. But, the last couple of years people have finally started to see the uniqueness in freckles and have created makeup looks by dotting their faces. A freckle look in the summer will definitely enhance your skins bronze tone from the sun and draw attention to your perfectly shimmering cheekbones.
10. Popping EyeShadow
Pop! Your eyes are beautiful and they deserve all the attention. Frame your eyes with summer colours that highlight your eyes. With those magnetic colours, sunny glare, and natural eyes, your eyes will be the centre of attention all summer long.
