5 Summer Makeup Looks You Should Definitely Take for a Spin This Season

Dewy bare skin is one of this summer’s major beauty trends. But if you’re looking for Instagram love, choose one focal point—eyes or lips—and go bold.

As the sunshine (hopefully) settles in for the season ahead here in Canada, and much of the country begins to reopen after months spent in quarantine, we can finally start to think about what summer makeup looks we’ll wear on our outings (beyond the grocery store). From high shine to bold colours, unexpected pairings and art-influenced application, there’s no shortage of ways to welcome the summer season on your face. The trick? Keep your base fresh and dewy and go bold everywhere else.

Below, find five of our favourite summer makeup looks to try over the next few months (almost all of which are face mask-friendly, too!):

Shine Factor

Face gloss is having a major moment. Try it on eyes, lips, cheeks and even collarbones for a truly dewy complexion this summer.

Sunset Strip

Think outside the box and go for a mesmerizing eye look inspired by one of the most photographed events in nature.

Colour Theory

One thing’s for sure: Mixing and pairing contrasting hues on top and bottom eyelids creates a show-stopping gaze.

Lip Service

Tired of your same old bold shades? Pairing your go-to lipstick with an unconventional liner colour gives a whole new meaning to “statement lips.”

Finger Paint

Letting go of standard makeup application techniques is the key to acing a painterly eye look like this one.
