Incorporating Color into Your Summer Routine

Summer is the perfect time to let your hair loose and break out of your comfort zone—especially when it comes to beauty!

Whether you’re headed to the beach, traveling the globe, or hanging with friends at a barbecue, now is the time to break out the bright colors. For those of you interested in trying out new and fun summer makeup, here are some ways to rock bold colors in a wearable way:

1. Colored Eyeliner: Though black and brown will always be classics, days in the summer sun are the perfect opportunity to try something new. By rocking a bright liner, you will be able to get yourself into the summer spirit in a subtle, wearable way. Not too drastic for work, and not too tame for a fun night out, choosing a colorful eyeliner option can instantaneously transform your summer look.

2. A Bold Lip: For those of you who are looking for something that is still simple, but a little more noticeable, try picking a fun lip color rather than an everyday nude! The wonderful thing about modern day makeup is that you can find a lipstick in essentially any shade imaginable. From a timeless red lip or a crazy coral, to less traditional (but still awesome) blues, purples, and greens, changing up your lip color is probably the easiest way to get into the summer spirit.

3. Up Your Shadow Game: If you’ve got a little extra time on your hands and feel like pulling out all the stops, try dipping into your most colorful eyeshadow palette! Rather than grabbing your everyday neutrals, instead reach for a fun purple, an intense orange, or a vibrant green that will be sure to grab anyone’s attention. Even if you’re scared of looking too “out there”, just a light dust of bright color can be bold, yet still delicate and tasteful.
