We love experimenting with makeup & matching it to the seasons. Summer is all about golden tones, highlighting and getting the glow. We’ve hit up the ‘gram for some inspo & to find some makeup looks you need to try asap…
Obvs summer makeup involves a lot of gold and a lot of glow. This look by @bybrookelle combines both of those with a rose gold smokey eye, a serious killer highlight and a soft pinky-gold lip. It’s golden hour girl, embrace it.
Want something a little bit more? Inject some colour into your look with some orange and red tones. We’re loving how @desiperkins works a sunset inspired eye with a really simple base. It’s really wearable and would be great for an evening look on a beach holiday.
If you’re not into an all over colourful eye look, then why not go for something a little more subtle with a hint of colour on the lower lash line. This purple liner look by @lizalash is a fun way to mix up your everyday makeup. You can use whatever colour you fancy and don’t have to be a pro at makeup to achieve this look. Just apply the desired colour to your lower lash line and you’re good to go. Easy.
Another thing to us that screams ‘summer’s here’ are freckles. If you have freckles yourself you’ll know that as soon as the sun makes an appearance, they do too. So why not let them show through your makeup look? Apply less foundation to this area of the face and let them shine through. Don’t have freckles? No drama, just draw them on with a brown eyeliner like @nyane.
IT’S A LIP THING
A bright lip is the perfect way to spice up a summery outfit. Whether you’re going for pinks, red, oranges or corals; it’s gonna look fire! For a daytime vibe, go for a slick of liquid liner with an orange shade. Then for the evening, glam up with a hollywood red and a smokey eye like @nikkietutorials. It’s old school glam that’s perfect for the season.
GO ALL OUT
Summer is all about having fun, particularly if you’re off to any festivals. Here’s where you can go wild with your makeup by adding glitter, colours, gems, sequins and more. One of our fave festival inspo Queens is @sophiehannahrichardson, who always nails the look down to a tee. There’s no rules here other than the more the better!
