A white shirt paired with a skirt or pant will always remain classic and perfect workwear for hot summer months. Keep it simple by applying two coats of mascara and sweep on creamy pink or mauve lipstick. Pick the same lipstick shade and dab it on your cheeks using the tip of your ring finger to get a natural-looking flush of colour.

Most Indian women stock up on cotton kurtas during summer; after all, they are comfortable to wear and look stylish too. You can keep it simple by sweeping on nude lipstick, lining your eyes with black eyeliner and applying 2-3 coats of mascara. But if you have an extra minute, just dab some bright eyeshadow on your eyelids to create a fun and summery look like Hina Khan.

Those who can’t stay away from their favourite bow blouses even during the hot summer months, we get it. This work attire looks powerful and is appropriate for every formal setting. A light pink shade will pair perfectly with this classy work outfit. All you got to do is pick a soft pink creamy lipstick and apply it to your lips. Then use the same shade as eyeshadow by dabbing some on your lids. Easy-peasy!

Nothing exhibits power like a stunning pantsuit. But you need to pair it with an equally gorgeous makeup look. Take cues from Kangana Ranaut and apply a bold lipstick shade like berry or maroon with a simple winged eyeliner look and take your work attire several notches higher this summer.
