Get to know the makeup colors of summer
Summer vacation is less than a month away for most of us and that means it's time to figure out what colors are in and which ones you'll need to put away for fall. There is plenty to be excited about as the temperature rises, thanks to a slew of bright and bold hues that are sure to help your sun-kissed skin stand out. Here are the "It" makeup shades to seek out come summer:
Hot pink hottie
You might consider pink or peach blush to be a staple in your beauty routine, but since you'll be naturally flushed and golden brown from days at the beach or pool, it's OK to give it a rest. Think about it, is your crush going to notice the girl with rosy cheeks or the one bold and brave enough to accentuate her pout with hot pink? Go big or go home, right ladies?
Still not sure? Tons of A-list stars including Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, Emma Watson and Emma Stone have all donned a hot pink pout with much success, Hello! magazine reports.
One way to rock this trend is to skip rimming your top lids in teal liner and instead highlight the bottom lids with the vibrant hue. This little trick will not only prove you're a style maven in your own right, it can add a bit of flair to your eye makeup with little to no effort. Models at the Stella McCartney runway show rocked this style and you should, too.
Looking for a bit more drama? Opt to rock teal as eyeshadow - looking for a combo compact that contains both matte and metallic options might be best so you can layer the look and help dress the eyes up or down.
Perfect in purple
The two shades will instantly enhance any ensemble - whether you're heading out on the town in a LBD or attending a summer wedding with your best guy.
