Each new season brings with it a wealth of new makeup looks. After scouting out countless faces for the latest and greatest, we’ve compiled a list of the hottest makeup trends for the summer season. The rundown: summer colour is soft, light and breezy to reflect the carefree feel of the season.
Whether it’s your foundation or your bronzer, barely there makeup is the look of summer. Choose a bronzing powder with golden undertones, just a shade darker than your skin tone to give you that bronzed goddess look. Foundation should be light and natural looking for a fresh, radiant complexion.
This cult classic has reemerged just in time for summer. From the runways to the beaches, nude lips are back in a big way. For the ultimate nude look, try a matte lip finish. Just fill in your lips with a light–colored lip pencil and top with a neutral lipstick or tint.
What better way to beat the heat than with a cool eye shadow? Sweep a bright blue, an emerald green or a steely gray across your lids to add a sparkle to your summer look. Go light on colour during the day, but don’t be afraid to be a little more daring in the evening.
Soft, pink cheeks are the perfect complement to shimmering eye makeup. The right pink will give you a natural, rosy glow to help play up your eyes and light up your whole complexion. Apply a pastel blusher to the apples of your cheeks and blend up to your hairline.Pür Pick: Universal Marble Powder in Pink illuminates skin and brightens cheeks with a soft, rosy glow. Bonus: This blushing powder can also be used to add a touch of pink to eyes and lips.
