Summer is just around the corner and millions of people can’t wait for it to finally come. Summer means pretty little dresses, bandanas, tiny bikinis, beautiful tan, festivals, and beach. This is the time when we go out a lot and stay out late, and when everything is carefree. The only thing that’s not is our makeup. It is difficult picking the right makeup style (or styles) for each season and you cannot help but wonder should you stick to your usual style or should you experiment with attest trends.
The trend which started the previous fall is continued today: bold lips inviting kisses and stealing the spotlight. You might not be the fan of dark shades which are popular, so you will jump at the opportunity to wear bright red, pink, and orange lipsticks which will go perfectly with your outfit and your summer mood. If you would like your lips to look fuller, put a bit of lip gloss over your lipstick – the shimmer will give them more volume, or if you like it matte, play with darker and lighter hues of the same color.
Eyes are there to attract, seduce, hypnotize, and charm everyone around you, and you should pay special attention to them. Innocent, girly style with just a bit of mascara and some eye shadow for the morning is easily transformed into smoky-eyed, dramatic look of a queen whose look seduces everyone who dares look her in the eyes. Use eyeliner freely – discreet cat eyes or heavy winged eyeliner, whatever goes best with your outfit and occasion. Experiment with glitters and golden eyeliner as well – we could all use a bit glitter every day, don’t you think?
Deep inside, we are all princesses, so why bother and even try to hide it? Why not show it to the world instead? Wear beautiful yellow and brown eye shadow to be Belle from the Beauty and the Beast, wear red and green to look like Ariel from the Little Mermaid, glittery pink for Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty, and blue for lovely Cinderella.
It is going to be hot, super hot this summer, and you don’t want your precious and carefully applied makeup to smear and run down your face in the most inconvenient moment, right? This is why you should be careful with your primer, foundation, concealer, and highlighter. You don’t want to put too much of it on, but you don’t want your pimples and spots to be visible from afar either. Use powder to set your liquid foundation, it will ‘lock’ the liquid product in place.
You should not be afraid to experiment even if you are sure that you have found the right style for your face and personality. Experimenting and innovative approach to makeup will show you new possibilities and ideas which you could implement in your everyday style. Experiment with bold lips and colorful eyelids and discover new looks you will fall in love with.
