Yes, sun-drenched cheeks look so pretty. No, you don’t need to have an actual sunburn to nail this look.
Sun-kissed blush is one of the summer’s top trends and rightfully so! This look can be achieved by layering two shades of blush on the spots where you naturally get sunburn like on the higher part of the apples of your cheeks and across the bridge of your nose. Using warm tone blushes similar to the color of when your cheeks flush under the summer sun gives that natural sun-drenched glow. Complete the look with a lipstick stain for that natural vibe. Check out Danessa's Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Blush HERE.
The ever-trendy dewy or glowing skin look is perfect for summer. After all, it's about showcasing a skin that looks healthy, and hydrated without appearing too oily. This radiant fresh faced look usually calls for sheerly tinted moisturizers and serums, water based foundations and highlighters/bronzers. Make sure to apply the highlighter/bronzer in strategic places for that natural glow. Since your gorgeous glowing skin is the star of this look, go for sheer, natural tint/gloss for your lips and add just a bit of color to your eyes. You can level up the look with a liquid eyeliner.
It's best to use hydrating formulas that are light and very skin-like, so you can achieve that ever enviable ethereal and fresh finish. Check out these products to achieve the dewy look: Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Glow Serum, Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Serum Foundation, Glamazon Beauty Flawless Gel Eyeliner Pen, and Evita Joseph Hi-Gloss Lipgloss.
Look chic and sophisticated even if just using a one single shade of makeup. This soft-glam make up trend involves blending similar hues across eyes, lips, and cheeks for a cohesive and pulled together finish. Contrary to the belief that applying the same color to the lips, face, and cheeks usually results in a flat and effortless look, monochromatic makeup can actually range from soft and subtle, to bold and bright depending on the color that you use. Excellent colors to try this summer to name a few would be mauve, orange, and pink hues.
The best part about monochromatic make up? It's easy and convenient and you can rock it all summer long. Shop these products to achieve a monochromatic look: Perfect Pigment Velvet Eyeshadow in Pink Crush, Luxe Silky Matte Lipstick in Shade Ritchie, Glolighter Powder in Bliss.
Soft smoky look
Pulling off that classic sultry yet edgy smoky look may sound pretty simple but in practice, the smokiness can be either lacking or too much. The classic smoky eye look usually calls for grey, black or brown to create dimension ranging from really dark gradient and then fading it out and is a perfect look for a night out. So for summer, you can tone the smokiness down a bit and opt for a soft smoky eye look that you can even wear during the day. Shades like copper, orange-brown, taupe and the classic charcoal, when perfectly blended, exude a subdued yet glamorous feel.
Complete the look with your eyeliner, and mascara and you're all set for a date straight from your office desk! Shop the perfect shades for a summer smoky look here: Evita Joseph The Lady Eyeshadow Palette, Hue Noir Perfect Pigment Velvet Eyeshadow in Haute Hunter, Glamazon Lash Out Mascara, and Luxe Eyelashes in The Marion.
90s Make Up
Legendary supermodels come to mind at the mention of the 90s era make up looks and it's so satisfying to know that the dreamy yet glamorous look is still trending decades later. Some of the 90s make up looks that are perfect for summer include turquoise and aqua eyes with soft metallic sheen, brown lipstick that's at least 2 shades darker than your skintone, and of course brown smoky eyes. Let's shop products perfect to achieve this look: Danessa Myricks Beauty Infinite Chrome Micropencils, Hue Noir Perfect Pigment Velvet Eyeshadow in Rock Creek Park, and Marena Beaute Longwear Nude Lipstick in Praline.
