We love summers! Apart from getting to wear pretty floral dresses, it’s the perfect season to pack on some colourful, statement-worthy makeup.
Not for the faint-hearted, coloured eye makeup is totally ruling the ‘gram and we can’t get enough of it. Wanna hop onto the bandwagon? Here’s some inspo to help you get started…
Not so mellow, yellow
Yellow reminds of sunshine, sunflowers and all things summer. Besides, it’s such a universally flattering colour that looks lovely on all skin tones. We love how simple yet stunning this makeup look is. All you need to do is, apply a wash of yellow eyeshadow all over your lid, apply a flick of winged eyeliner and you’re good to go. BTW, don’t miss out on the pink inner corner highlight for some extra oomph.
Red eyeshadow may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but once you give this colour a try, there’s no going back. When working with a colour like red, it’s important to blend the eyeshadow perfectly for a seamless finish and extend the colour to your lower lashline for a cohesive look. Complete the look with some eyeliner, lots of mascara and a nude gloss on your lips. Don’t worry if you don’t have a red eyeshadow, you can always use a red lip liner to get this look.
We never imagine that mixing yellow, orange, metallic blue and silver would make for such a stunning summery eye makeup. The mix of different eyeshadow textures helps in making this eye makeup look super unique, while the silver inner corner highlight and as well as white waterline helps open up the eyes so well. Remember to keep the rest of your makeup minimal when you’re working with so many colours to balance things out.
Lilac eye makeup is trending hard RN and just like yellow, looks extremely flattering on skin tones. When recreating this look, apply a white or nude eyeshadow as a base to make the lilac shadow pop. The embellishments add such a beautiful, sundowner vibe. Lots of mascara, some highlighter, warm-toned blush and gloss complete this look.
Makeup minimalists, here’s a summer eye makeup look that packs a punch without looking too OTT. The emerald green waterline and yellow inner corner highlight look so stunning that we can’t even! The black-winged eyeliner adds the right touches to the super wearable eye makeup look.
