Long and hot summer nights are the best time for fun and parties. Summer parties are the perfect time for the craziest makeup experiments. Wearing extravagant makeup will instantly boost your confidence and put you in an enjoyable mood.

Are you trying to put together a fun look for your next party? Here are a few easy and fun makeup ideas for your summer outings. It's always nice to explore different color palettes and try new trends, right?!

Bold Liner

Are you going to a pool party? Draw thick and heavy eyeliner with a waterproof, cream or liquid eyeliner. Keep the rest of the look fresh faced and minimalistic so the liner stands out.

Blue Liner

If you're really looking to tszuj things up and are feeling a bit 'extra' try playing with colored glitter or metallic liner!

How-To Makeup Glitter Eye Makeup Pop

Let  your makeup fully dry, before leaving your house. Once this bold and thick stripe dries, it is going to last all night long!

If you'd like to stick to the monochrome, one color look, nobody said it has to be boring!


Use 2-3 eyeshadows in the same color family to add dimension and highlight, top off with the same color glitter, then embellish with neon or metallic liner for a graphic or pop art look!

Graphic Yellow Liner

Colorful eyeliner is one of the major summer makeup trends, so swap your everyday, black eyeliner for something fun!

Teal, sky blue and hot pink will emphasize your personality and brighten up any outfit.

You don't have to spend hours to create statement eyes!


You can go for something really simple and then choose a very stand-out color like red and apply that as your eyeliner.

Smudge a shadow on the lower lashline in a complimentary shade and bam, instant statement eyes that'll make you stand out from the crowd!


Fiery Eyes

Who said that red should only be reserved for the the lips? Sultry orange, red and brick brown shades are reminiscent of a sunset on a summer beach.

Bronze and copper shades are quite similar in color and they work well together, so you can use these shades for seamless blending.

The Magic Juvia's Palette Tutorial

Take the look from wearable to artsy, by applying a contrasting, bright or neon hued liner. False lashes add instant drama to the look!

Summer Florals

For a glam look, stick to the red, burgundy or orange theme and finish with gold glitter in the center for a glowing, halo effect!

Festival Vibes

If you're not feeling glitter on the entire lid, try the cut crease glitter trend! It adds a sparkle element yet is a lot easier than dealing with glitter fallout during application.

Sunset Cut Crease

Although these colors seem intimidating at first, bright shades such as red, orange, brick and brown look awesome with blue eyes, brown and even green eyes.

Lacquered Lips


Colorful lacquered lips is one of summer's most fun and beautiful makeup trends. Don't stick with the classic red glossy lip look all season long. Experiment with different colors and if you're up for it, combine them together for an ombre lip.

Fantasy Ombre Metallic Lip Art Tutorial


Before applying color to your lips, make sure to exfoliate to create a smooth and prepped surface to ensure you don't get dry or uneven patches of lip color on your lips. After exfoliation, moisturize and line your lips. Then, fill in with color.

Lacquered lips demand special attention and  touch-ups throughout the night but this look is totally worth the extra effort!


Go Pink 

Our favorite celebrities are making the all-pink makeup look one of the most popular summer beauty trends. 

Match your pink favorite lipstick and eyeliner for a fun look! Leave everything else neutral so the liner and lips stand out.

Pink Eyeliner & Pink Lips

If you're feeling bold, go for a dramatic pink cut crease and match with a deep fuschia or plum lip. Finish with lashes and glitter for a glam night out!

If you're afraid of wearing pinks and reds near the eyes, you can always add lots of  black liner for an instant, smoldering and sexy look. Plus, the black liner really adds contrast and enhances the bright colors and really makes them pop!

Grunge Barbie Makeup Look

From hot pink lipstick to baby pink blush, wearing all pink is the right trend to wear to a party this season. It's playful, fun and adds the perfect pinch of color to your complexion!

Showstopper Pink Lip Art Tutorial

Bright pink and fuchsia shades go well with gold, white, black and even gray hues. You can never go wrong when pairing brights with everyday neutrals!

If you're lovin' the all pink theme, don't just limit the trend to your makeup! Try exploring a fun, pink manicure, the look opportunies are endless.

Don't forget to water and sweatproof your summer party makeup. Nobody wants to look like a raccoon! Use makeup products with waterproof and long-lasting formulas, apply a good makeup and eyeshadow primer and seal the 'final' result with a setting spray. Keep necessary products in your purse, in case  you'll need to touch up your makeup throughout the day!
