It’s no secret that summertime is the season to paint your pout in bright hues. From magenta to coral to fire engine red, ladies everywhere may embrace the warm weather by sporting a bold-colored smile.
Though it’s a fun trend, it can also make selecting eye makeup a challenge – the shadow shouldn’t overwhelm your lip color, and a smoky eye can instantly take a red lip from beachy to burlesque.
It’s easy to opt for a simple look, a dusting of sheer powder and a single coat of mascara, but you shouldn’t be afraid to emphasize your eyes as you rock a bright pout. And, with the right color palette and application, it’ll be a breeze.
The first step is to pull away from traditional blacks and browns, which can be too dark and harsh to pair with a magenta smile. Instead, opt for silvers, coppers and golds – these neutral shades will help your eyes smolder without overwhelming your pretty pout.
To try this look, line the outside corner of your eyes with a light-colored liner, like GloMinerals Metallic gloEye Pencils Trio, which come in bronze, copper and platinum. The shades are ideal for subtle yet smoky summertime eyes.
After, apply a shimmery sheer shadow, like Paula Dorf‘s Eye Color Glimmer, to add a subtle wash of color that will make your eyes pop.
