Beauty Tips for Effortless Summer Makeup + CONTEST (closed)!

Makeup should be changed every season. However, your beauty transition can be difficult when you don’t know the products you need to create a fresh and effortless summer look. Don’t worry, though – BH has got you covered! Here are our beauty tips for this season:

EYES

Brighter shades of eye shadow are vital to creating the perfect summer look. Instead of wearing darker shades such as gray or brown on your lids, opt for brighter neon colors such as neon green or purple. Just a swipe across your lids is more than enough to make your eyes pop. Our BH Party Girl Palette offers 40 bright eye shadows that you can use to brighten your lids.

LIPS

While darker lipsticks and liners are often popular in the cooler months, shinier, more colorful glosses, lipsticks and lip liners truly make a statement in the warmer months. Bright pinks and lighter colored lipsticks are ideal for balancing out a nice summer tan or making your skin appear brighter after the cooler months. However, even when you take a dip in the pool, you still want your makeup to look flawless. Our Waterproof Lip Liners come in a variety of shades for summer.

FACE

During the summer, it can get hot enough to make your makeup run, and sweat and oil can cause your makeup to smudge and look tired. However, when you make Anti-Shine Serum and makeup primer part of your summer makeup routine, you can keep your makeup on your face! Anti-Shine Serum and primer absorbs oil on your face and creates a smooth, matte surface that is ideal for makeup application. Our Anti-Shine Serum is ideal for all skin types and makes makeup application a breeze.

This Summer, switch your heavier makeup for brighter, lighter makeup, so you can look fresh and ready for anything all summer long!

MUA Monday – 60’s Inspired Lilac Eyeshadow

Pastel tones were very popular in 60’s beauty and are great colors to use during the Spring season. We’re seeing celebs like Rihanna, Leighton Meester, and Emily Blunt sporting pastel shades of lilac eyeshadow. Feeling mod-inspired, I created a look using lilac, lavender and hints of grey tones to make it appear “dusty.”  What do you think?

 

 

 

Tips to achieve:

I say this is 60’s inspired because I did not use any harsh lines and kept it soft. For more depth and intensity, contour with a grey satin shade from the outer corner, into the crease, and then directly above the crease on the inner half of the eye. You can almost blend the shadow up into your eyebrow for the dramatic deep set eyes that were so popular during that time period. For this look, you can use lilac, mint, or baby blue color schemes. Apply about 3-4 coats of black mascara for spiky lashes. Top the look off with some fresh nude gloss like the BH “Peace, Love and Mod.”
