Summer is a time of lush beauty, sun-soaked evenings and a Cuban approach to life. Makeup trends for summer are reflecting this desire to savor the moment by keeping makeup simple, but sensous.
The foundation of summer makeup is clean, glowy skin. Ditch heavy blush and bronzers, lighten up on foundation. Use concealer on blemishes and dark circles followed by a luminescent tinted moisturizer. You can highlight cheekbones with a luminizer.
A great monochromatic makeup look uses the same eye, blush and lipcolor. Go with pink for cool and neutral skin tones and peach for warm tones. Do a light wash of color over the eyelids, use the same color as a blush being very soft in your application. Finish with a lipstick or gloss close to your chosen shade.
For this look, after your dewy foundation is done, add a bright pop of color to your eyelids keeping it neat and controlled. Think lime green, bright coral, aqua or plum. Let that be the focus and minimize blush and lipstick.
Bronze skin is still on trend, but is applied with a much lighter hand this season. Eyes are nude except for mascara. The statement here is the deeper lip color.
Reminescent of Havana, this look is created with soft coral blush tinting the cheekbones and bright coral red lipstick.
Summer makeup this season is exactly what it should be. Sultry, sexy, simple!
