Getting Gorgeous The Easy Way
Summer makeup looks give you a chance to highlight your beautiful bronze skin and make your eyes and lips glisten with color. It’s a the perfect time for natural makeup looks are enhancing your eyes with the colors of the sea. There’s a perfect way to try out new looks and get the perfect makeup style for you.
Summer Makeup Trends
The trend for this season is always bronze with a little shimmer. Add to that beautiful blues, sea greens and gold eyeshadow colors for your eyes and you have a look that draws attention any time.
Start with a professional makeup artist palette. The colors are put together in a way that they work with each other for a variety of summer makeup looks and they usually contain a bronzer, shimmer eye shadow colors and lip gloss.
Best Summer Makeup Kits
There are two collections that I really like for creating summer makeup looks this season:
Sonia Kashuk has put together the “How to Create the Bronzed Face” makeup palette. It’s a compact palette that would fit easily into your purse. The eyeshadow colors in this kit are really spectacular!
There’s a bronze shimmer eyeshadow with a deeper brown shimmer eyeshadow that can be used in the crease or to line your eyes. There’s also peach matte eyeshadow color which can be worn alone for daytime looks. Top it off with a natural blush color and a light dusting of the bronzer and you’re set to go.
The best lip gloss in this kit is the apricot pink color. Although there is very little tint in it, it does works well over coral lipstick colors. If you want to go a little more pink then coral, simply apply it over a pink lip pencil. The other two colors of lip gloss colors are simply sheer shimmers. One is gold and the other has a slight bronze tone to it. Use them to lighten any lipstick you have that is a little too dark – or wear them alone for a pale lip look.
This kit is a Makeup Notebook Favorite. For the price, $19.99, you just can’t beat it. Find it on Amazon.com.
Glowing Bronzer Makeup
If you’ve ever worn Smashbox Cosmetics, then you know they offer very high quality makeup items that work. For summer makeup looks they’re offering the “Keep It Glowing 8-piece Color Collection.” It contains the new Glow Color Boosting Powder – a beautiful loose bronzer – and an eyeshadow duo along with their Jet Set Waterproof Eyeliner. For your lips there is an apricot lip pencil and a high shine gloss. The colors in this collection are ones that you’ll want to use time and again and they all work well with each other. Find it on QVC.com for $83.50.
Summer makeup looks are easy to create when you have the right colors that work with each other. Makeup palettes are always perfect for a variety of looks. Take out any colors that don’t work well for you and fill them back up with ones that do. It’s a great way to get the most from your makeup.
