How to Spice Up Your Summer Makeup

How to Spice Up Your Summer Makeup

Summer is in full swing, and with it comes the heat. So why not heat up your summer makeup? Now is the perfect time to try out new makeup trends like a colorfully bold smoky eye and dewy skin. Check out some of my favorite products that will help you achieve these looks in a few quick steps.

1—Kyshadow, The Burgundy Palette. The Kylie Jenner Kyshadow palette has the perfect summer shades that will heat up your smoky eye. First, use the color Beach, a light brown, on your inner lid near the tear duct and then Penny, a red-orange, all over the lid with a domed eyeshadow brush. Next, use Brick and Almond, two deeper browns, for the outer crease. Blend out those dark colors with a blender brush to achieve the perfect smoky eye look. As a finishing touch, add Burgundy, a dark burgundy, and LA, a nice copper, to the middle of the lid for a shimmery summer look.

2—Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Minimal makeup is key during the summer months. This weightless foundation has full coverage while giving your skin a silky finish. Apply the foundation all over the skin with a foundation brush or a beauty blender. Make sure to apply evenly so that no streaks or lines appear.

3—Anastasia Contour Kit. After applying a base for your skin, use this cream contour to add a little more shape to your face. Use a shade that will be dark enough to show off your cheekbones and temples naturally. To find the perfect placement for your contour, suck in your cheeks so that you can see the natural line of your cheekbones. Blend in the cream contour with an angled brush or a beauty blender. Add the same shade to your temples connecting to your cheekbone for an even, bronzed look.

4—Too Faced Candlelight Glow. Use a shimmery highlight to bring out key parts of your face. Add this rose gold highlight to your upper cheekbones above the contour, the bridge of your nose, upper lip, chin, and above the brows. This brings in the light to your face, giving you that perfect summer glow.

5—Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes. Finish off this fierce look with a lengthening, curling, and volumizing mascara. Mascara that plumps your lashes will enhance your eye shadow look and bring out your eyes for a show-stopping look.

Here’s the finished look! This fiery makeup will for sure spice up your summer.
