Summer is the time when we mostly see bronze and golden shades that perfectly complement tanned skin. Golden shades can be worn during day or for evenings, festive and less ceremonial occasions and are very easy to adjust to all skin tones. Apply the golden shade over the entire lid, blend the edges outwards, then define the eyelash line with a soft, black or brown eye pencil. Apply two layers of volumizing mascara and you are ready.
COLD GRAPHIC LINER
Blue shades seem to be exclusively reserved for the summer days. Refreshing blue hues this season go from pastel creamy shades, to rich and dark turquoise shades. If you pair up these shades with clearly defined lines, you will get a look that is ideal for going out and special occasions. Apply one, lighter shade of blue to the entire lid, and then define the outer corner in the V form with a darker shade. Pull the outer edge up to the finish line of the eyebrow. Blend the transition between two shades with a blending brush, and then clean the outer edges with a clean straight-cut brush or a pointed Q tip. Apply a hazy brown shade on the lower eyelid to define the shape of the eye. Take time and slowly apply layer by layer. And remember, less is always more so apply color in thin layers to achieve the desired look.
HOT MONOCHROMATIC LOOK
Fiery red looks good for every season, especially for hot summer evenings. For extra spice use one to two shades of red, flat brush to apply the shade from the middle of the eye. Use a soft brush to blend out the outer lines and edges. Do not forget to frame the look and gently apply the red shade on the lower eyelid.
Play on the shades of berry fruit. Pink, red, violet shades with a variety of under tones give a touch of freshness and change. As much as we love the classic red lipstick, this summer you go for raspberries or vibrant blueberries. By choosing a creamy texture you give your lips and a dose of hydration, while the matte texture will come well for nighttime fun time.
