Every time the summer season rolls around, there are trends that follow. Not just when it comes to clothes, swimwear and shoes but make-up as well.
It makes sense too, being that it’s the time of year when there are June weddings, outdoor concerts, summer vacations and so many other occasions to put your best face forward.
If you love all things make-up and you’re curious about what you can do to make yourself even more stunning than you already are, how about giving some of the following summer make-up trends a try? You’ll be picture perfect. Guaranteed.
Seafoam green eyes
Seafoam green is such a perfect color for summer. It makes you think of trees in bloom and water at the same time. And when it’s on your eyelids, you look truly magical. And of course, summer ready.
Peach eye shadow
Another wonderful eyeshadow shade to try is peach. It’s more of a natural hue that can still provide you with some pretty dramatic results.
If you can’t stop staring at her lips because the coral is so striking, just think about the impression that you’ll be able to make if you decide to give it a try?
No matter what your skin tone may be, definitely invest in a compact of golden bronzer and a blush brush. By applying it to the apples of your cheeks, you’ll look like you’ve been kissed by the sun.
Pale pink lips
If you’re the kind of gal who prefers to go pretty natural during the summertime, then make sure to apply a coat of (waterproof) mascara and to go with a pale pink shade of lipstick. Like this one. You’ll look unbelievably fresh.
Brown and blue eyes
Here’s a look that works well during the day or night. Apply a light blue eyeshadow and then transition to a blue shade as you extend along the crease. It’s especially beautiful when applies to women who have brown eyes.
This picture is a great example of how one color can work across the board. Lavender is not only a hot color in eyeshadow right now but hair color too.
Shimmering skin perfector
If you’re wondering what you can do in order to make your skin appear flawless, rather than going with a cream foundation, opt for a shimmering skin perfector instead. That way, you can subtly get rid of any imperfections while also achieving a wonderful glow.
Metallic make-up is a big trend right now. And if you happen to have a darker skin tone, it can offer you some really striking results. As you can clearly see.
Here’s an easy way to provide a dramatic look without a ton of effort. Rather than applying a black or brown eyeliner, go with an aqua color instead. It makes such an impression that you won’t even have to apply color to your lips. (Do make sure to put on some lip gloss, though!)
Sorbet lip colors
Sorbet colors are a lot of fun during the summertime. If you never thought about trying out a green or a yellow, you might want to consider blending them with a more neutral shade to see what results you might get.
Pink and gold glitter
Oh how we love this, don’t you! A pink lip and some gold glitter on top. Amazing. And just how can you make this happen? Go to a beautiful supply store and look for some glitter or gold eyeshadow with glitter in it. Apply the lipstick first and then use a lip brush to add the glitter. You can then dab on a bit of lip gloss if you’d like. It’s totally up to you.
Full eyelashes and nude lips
She looks pretty stunning, right? And really, all she did was apply some false eyelashes and a nude lip color. Yes, sometimes beauty is really just that simple.
Yeah, there is a lot of color going on right here but if you have a date coming up or even a summertime photo shoot, you will make quite the impression with these “peacock eyes”.
Hot pink lips
What one lipstick shade can do. Correction: What the right lipstick color can do to totally brighten up a woman’s face. Hot pink is just one example.
Technically, lotion does not qualify as make-up. However, it goes on our list because a bit of it on your face is lightweight way to add some shimmer.
Popsicle stained lips (reversed ombre)
Yes! The reverse ombre where the lighter hue is on the outside and the darker one is on the inside. And the end result: Lips that are super cool looking. Literally.
A ‘nude’ face
A nude face is a great one for the days when you know that you’re going to be spending hours outside. A pale pink eyeshadow, a nude shade of blush and lipstick will make you look naturally appealing.
This particular look is very similar to the peacock eyes, minus a few colors. And if you really want to play it up, add a dark shade of pink or even red on your lips.
How can we possibly talk about summer make-up trends without sharing a picture of a photo of a bride who displays what it means to have just the right amount of make-up on for her special day? If you’re a bride-to-be, make sure to show this to your make-up artist. You can’t go wrong with this particular look.
