As the seasons change, so should your makeup. Your fall makeup palette will clash with bright summer cloths and warm days. When the weather changes so should your makeup. Cooler weather means jewel tones and darker tones. Warm weather is light and bright. Toss out that cool weather makeup kit and choose breathable, bright hues for summer. Replace lip, eye and cheek colors to complement your cool new clothes.
Banish pale winter skin by add peachy tones to your base makeup. Buy a coppery peach bronzer to add rich warmth to your complexion. Creamy peach blush swiped gently on your cheeks with two fingers will add light depth to cheekbones. Top peach lipstick with clear lip gloss for pretty peach kissable lips. Swap out old liners for a light neutral color.
Coral makeup is not just for the beach trips. Coral makeup colors look best when worn as a total look, not just eyes or lips. Transform your makeup look with liquid eye shadow in the crease. Dab lips with coral gloss for a fresh look. Women with green eyes look especially beautiful with coral shadows.
Go bold with pink in your summer makeup. Steer clear of frosted pinks that might make you look sweaty. Try bold fuchsia on the cheekbones sweeping from back to front. Sweep a light pink eye shadow under the brow bone and on the bottom lid. Touch the inside of the brow bone with a darker pink. Dark black or blue eyeliner looks pretty this color. Keep mascara dark and rich. Bubblegum, plum, and sweetheart pink are all beautiful shades.
A blue shadow looks great on darker skin tones. Women with fair skin should steer clear of indigo and royal blues. Try a periwinkle or denim color instead. Add blue eyeliner instead of black or brown. Blue eyeliner makes blue shadows even more colorful. Avoid overwhelming your eye palette by adding taupe, tan or a neutral tone to your eye shadow collection. Aqua and turquoise blues are excellent shades for a summer makeup wardrobe. Use a pointed eye shadow brush to get the makeup right where you want it. Blues have a tendency to scatter if applied with a too large a brush.
A good bronzer is a summer essential. Sweep bronzer over the high points of the face where you naturally get sun. Cheeks, chin, nose and forehead should be swept with a bold brush. Avoid over bronzing which can make you look orange instead. Try bronze beads or powder for a light look.
