A smoky eye can work wonders at the nightclub, but it looks totally overdone on a beachy summer day. If you’re heading to the shore and want to look beautiful without looking too made-up, a subtle, shimmery shadow is just the ticket.
Summer is all about embracing the beauty of nature – and that goes for your summertime makeup, too. Daytime looks for summer should be all about enhancing your natural features with a sheer bronzer, soft pink cheeks and nude lips that show off just how pretty you really are. Don’t fog up those summer freckles with too much foundation – let the real you shine through. And when it comes to eyeshadow, it’s all about keeping things subtle.
Take your cues from the sunset and opt for pink, gold and peach for a beautiful summer look. Pick out some shimmery shadows that will lend just a hint of sparkle to your ensemble, and dot a bright champagne color right above your pupil to make those peepers pop. Skip the heavy eyeliner and top off your style with just a couple brushes of mascara. You’ll be looking fresh-faced all day long.
