With summer often comes more opportunities for socializing and being outside. This means that, despite the increased heat and stickiness, many of us aren’t about to give up on makeup just yet. The trick to wearing make-up in summer well is to consider the best products for your skin and to find ways to brighten and lighten your style. These three make-up looks will keep you looking fresh as a daisy.
When blue is used too heavily on the eyes, it can look overwhelming and too intense for the daytime. A slick line of light blue along the upper lash line gives a fun and flirty feel and helps to open up the eyes to make you look more awake. The lightest sheen of foundation or tinted moisturizer and a coat of lip balm is all you need to set this look off.
There is a shade of apricot to suit all skin tones, and there are multiple ways to use this hue on your face. Try an apricot blush layered over tinted moisturizer to maximize the sun-kissed look, try a slick of apricot lipstick over the lips, or blend a soft shade into your eye socket for barely-there shadow.
Pink is a color associated with summer, from gorgeous sunsets to blooming flowers to strawberry ice cream. Lean into this and dust pink blush over your cheekbones to highlight them or try a flashy feline flick of pink over your eyes. This is particularly effective if you’re heading to a summer festival and want to maximize the fun.
