These are my top 3 favorite makeup looks for the summer, as you can see they all involve plenty of color. The last one, hot pink lips, looks fantastic with another summer favorite of mine, the daytime smoky eye.

1. Colorful liquid eyeliner
2. A wash of colorful eyeshadow on the eyelid
3. Hot pink lipstick 
What do you all wear for the summer?

p.s. don’t try all of these looks at once. or if you do, send me a picture because that would be a trip!

  1. I really like the idea of coloured eyeliner and the hot pink lips but I wonder if these trends will also fit brunettes (as me) and red heads… what do you think?

    1. I’m a brunette and I definitely think these looks can work, I think it’s more about finding a shade of eyeshadow or lipstick that flatters your skin tone, that’s the tricky part!

  2. I have a performance tonight with my band and I’ve been trying to decide on my signature make-up. I quite like a very dark, smokey eye, but this cat eye is very tempting. Decisions, decisions…

    1. It is fun, but there’s a little bit of pressure too! I tried the smokey eye last week, but I’ve been doing the cat eye this week. I think I like it much better. I’ve got my eye on the pink lippy now! :p
