Summer Makeup Looks
Sharing a roundup of 20+ spring makeup looks to help you feel refreshed and excited for the new season!
Fresh and Glowing
Get a natural, dewy look with lightweight, water based products like tinted moisturizer or light foundation. Additionally, try a liquid highlighter to enhance your glow. Add peachy or coral blush for color and sheer lip balm for hydration. Let your skin’s natural glow shine. Also, use a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer, bronzer, highlighter, neutral eye shades, and sheer lip gloss for a fresh, effortless look.
Elevate your look by playing with vibrant eyeshadows that infuse a burst of color. Experiment with vibrant eyeshadow shades like coral, turquoise, or golden yellow. Also, try appling a wash of color on your eyelids or create a colorful winged liner. Then be sure to pair it with a nude or glossy lip to let your eyes take the spotlight.
Get a radiant sun-kissed appearance by utilizing a bronzer to infuse warmth into your complexion. Gently brush it across your cheekbones, temples, and jawline for a subtle, natural glow. Complement your bronzed skin with a glossy nude lip and soft, neutral eyeshadows to ensure your luminous complexion takes center stage.
Summer is the ideal season for exploring bold lip colors and making a statement. Try experimenting with vibrant shades like hot pink, coral, or bright orange. Also, be sure to opt for long-lasting matte or satin finishes that can withstand the heat, or choose a lightweight lip stain for a more effortless and natural appearance. Let your lips become the focal point of your summer makeup look with these vibrant hues.
To ensure your makeup stays intact during summer activities, opt for waterproof or water-resistant formulas for your mascara and eyeliner. These formulations will help to prevent smudging or smearing caused by the heat. Also as a bonus, with makeup that stays put, you can fully enjoy your summer without any concerns about the longevity of your look.
Soft pastel shades are perfect for a dreamy and ethereal summer look. Use pastel eyeshadows in shades like lavender, mint green, or baby blue. Pair it with a light pink blush and a soft nude lip color for a delicate and feminine appearance.
This look draws inspiration from the warm and vibrant hues of a sunset. Create a sunset-inspired look with warm hues like burnt oranges, golden yellows, and deep reds on the eyelids. Blend the colors to mimic a stunning sunset gradient. Pair with a soft, peachy blush and a nude or coral lip color to complement the warm tones. The Sunset Eyes look adds sultry and summery allure to your makeup.
This natural and effortless style focuses on enhancing your features with warm, summery makeup. Start with a lightweight tinted moisturizer or sheer foundation to even out the skin tone while allowing your natural complexion to shine through. Use a peachy or rosy blush to add a subtle flush of color to the cheeks. Add peach or rose to your lips and eyes for an extra sunkissed effect.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is so important, especially in the summer when we spend more time outdoors. Also, a high-quality sunscreen serves as the perfect makeup base. Because of this, I’m sharing a few of my favorite sunscreens below. They not only provide reliable protection but also work seamlessly under makeup, ensuring a flawless and sun safe look for the summer season.
Always remember to personalize these ideas to match your unique style and preferences. Above all, enjoy yourself and embrace the joyful and lighthearted essence of summer!
