The Best Themes in Makeup This Summer
Summer is finally here, and with the arrival of warm weather comes a need to update your makeup routine. To help you stay on top of the latest trends in beauty, we’ve rounded up our favorite summer-ready makeup products that will get you looking flawless all day long. Check out these must-haves below!
The summer is the time for natural makeup looks, and our favorite way to do that this year is with soft eyeshadow colors. Sweep a matte shadow like taupe or bronze from lash line to brow bone for an effortlessly chic look. Finish by lining your top lashes only with black liner, then curl them up at the end.
A summertime essential, bronzed eyebrows are the perfect way to make your eyes look bigger and more awake. To get that sun-kissed look, use a pencil or powder with brown undertones like Soft Brown by MAC or Espresso by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Comb them through your eyebrows, then brush them out with a clean spoolie.
This one is pretty self explanatory — we love the look of bare and moisturized lips for summertime! To get your pout looking perfect without any color, use lip balm to hydrate dry parts while you wear gloss or lipstick on top for a healthy shine.
We’re all about the clean and natural beauty this season (and every season), which means that our makeup routine should be too. To keep your skin happy in summer heat (and to avoid any toxins), opt for products with plant-based ingredients like jojoba oil or shea butter, and make sure you’re swapping your every day staples, like lash glue, with clean alternatives.
Our favorite way to get long and luscious lashes this season is by using a lash primer. Apply the product before you put on your mascara for longer, fuller looking lashes that will last all day long.
If you’re not into primers or just want something more dramatic, use a volumizing mascara. We recommend lengthening, thickening and adding volume with the True Glue Lash Liberation Organic Mascara.
The last step of any summer makeup routine should be to add some shine! Instead of opting for heavy lipsticks or matte liquid lipstick that can leave your lips looking flat and dry in the summer, try a lip gloss or tint instead.
If you want to take your look to the next level, fake lashes are a must! We love using them for special occasions or when we know we’ll be out in the heat all day. Just make sure you pick up lash glue that dries clear so it will match any eye color and can’t be seen at all on top of your lids.
