Now that warmer weather has arrived it's time to switch up our makeup routines!

So pull out the colorful makeup palettes, the bolder the better!

Swap out your matte lips and blushes for some shimmery finishes!

Get your makeup brushes ready, we're going to explore some hot and bold summer 2018 makeup trends!

Summer Inspired Makeup Look

Just Kissed Lips

Soft glosses, just kissed raspberry and crimson red lips are going to be one of the major summer makeup trends. Forget about those heavy matte lipsticks and liquid metallic finishes, they won't do justice to your natural beauty. If you absolutely can't live without textures or metallics, try lip toppers that are iridescent or sheer and apply them just to the center of the lips for a soft, multi-dimensional effect.

How-To Transform Your Liquid Matte Lipcolor

As an alternative to your everyday matte lip, go for a subtle glossy or a tinted lip look. You can use lip tints to create a long-lasting smudged effect on your lips.


Tropical Cocktail

Summer Whirlwind Tutorial

Summer 2018 is the perfect time to play around with eyeliner. Step out of your comfort zone and try new shapes and explore new color palettes!

 Create a tropical cocktail by playing with juicy summer colors in electric blue, aqua green or even neon orange!

Glowing Fire


Marine Colors

Refreshing shades of blue and green are the it-colors for the summer 2018 season. You are going to see them everywhere - the fashion industry, interior design and even the culinary artistry.

AquaMarine Makeup Tutorial

These shades at first glance may seem intimidating but once you play around with these aqua hued shades, you'll see they really make all eye colors pop!

Try pairing with neutral shades such as taupe or peach for a wearable look.

Or for an eccentric eye look, pair with complimentary jewel toned hues such as mauve or fuschia.

You can even go full monochrome and keep the shade all in the same color family! For a bold look like this, you'll want to keep the rest of the look basic and minimal to make the eyes stand out.

Rose Gold Blush

Did you know that rose gold can be used to emphasize your skin complexion? Try to stay away from well-known bold blushes with a heavy matte finish during the summer time.

MOTD: Purple Ombre Lips

Instead go for warm, dusty rose gold hues which look beautiful on every skin tone! Complete your summer makeup with glowing highlighter and nude lips for a fresh and youthful look.
