It is always exciting when summer rolls around; you get to finally strut around in cute ruffled summer dresses with barely-there backs. And you need an equally pretty look to pair with your outfits.
But you don’t need to do a lot to look stunning on a bright sunny day; the natural light can elevate even the most basic makeup looks. As for your evening looks, gorgeous metallics and shimmers are enough to make you the centre of attention. Here are five trendy makeup looks that will elevate your cutesy outfits and take your look several notches higher.

Stepping out with a sheer base and barely-there makeup? Stock up on high-shine and intensely reflective highlighters because blinding glow is in this season. Apply them to the high-points of your face and get ready to slay!
BB picks: Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick
02. Elevated eyeshadow

Shimmery metallics and bold liner will always be cool for the summer. But how do you give them a chic update? By experimenting, of course. We love the negative space created on the crease, which can be easily achieved using a Q-tip dipped in makeup remover. Simply stunning!
BB picks: Lakmé 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow - Tanjore Rush
03. Gorgeous gloss

Glossy, shiny and jelly-like pouts will be seen everywhere this summer. The bright, statement colour fill will make your pout pop like no other. We have always been a sucker for the gloss and are so excited it’s trending hard this year.
BB picks: Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Lip Gloss - Electric Red
04. Peachy monotone

Matte monotone make looks are perfect for an everyday look. All you need to do is sweep on a peachy tone on your lips, lids and cheeks, and it will look chic with any kind of outfit you have planned. Peachy pigments are especially good at complementing the warmth of Indian skin tones and look delish for ‘golden Hour’ selfies.
BB picks: Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow palette - Pink Paradise
05. Rosy flush

Your skin is usually naturally flushed because of the heat, and we think that looks totally adorable. This is why recreating the flush with rosy blushes is a legit trend this season. We love the sun-kissed, and beachy vibe of this trend; perfect for recreating a vacay look even if you are not actually going on one!
