They say that the true test of style is looking like it took very minimal effort. Summer makeup should be easy - no one wants to be wasting time applying makeup on a warm day for it to just slide off later on. However, you don’t have to sacrifice your glam to get a beautiful summer look for the evening. With these simple and easy to follow steps, you can transform your makeup style to an evening glam look that is perfect for summer in no time.
Start with a natural BB or CC cream. Apply around the face, working from the centre to the outside. Use a brush for a more natural finish or, if you’re short on time, then using your fingers will give your skin a smooth, natural glow. These creams are lighter so you don’t have to worry about your makeup sliding off and give skin a more natural glow.
This is an important step in achieving a natural, glamorous evening look. Blush gives your face a glowing complexion and is a good way to contour your face. Simply dab your blush brush into your blush powder and swoop from the apple of the cheek outwards and upwards. For some extra glam, swap the blusher for a subtle light pink highlighter to make your summer nighttime look really shine and give you a glowing complexion.
Groomed eyebrows will add to your look no matter what you’re wearing. Buy an easy to use eyebrow pencil to brush through your eyebrows in one to two quick swoops. This way you can fill in gaps, make your eyebrows more uniform and give them a lovely shape - don’t forget to pluck those stray hairs.
Winged eyeliner can be pretty tricky until you get the hang of it. Give it some practice, and then once you’ve perfected it you can create a glamorous look easily and quickly. For a more natural eye choose a dark brown, or for a more “going-out” look choose black.
Embrace False Eyelashes
A simple pair of false eyelashes will make a huge difference to your nighttime glam look. After a bit of practice, you can apply a set of false eyelashes in minutes and they will make your eyes look more alert and youthful. Of course, not everyone is into false eyelashes, so a quick sweep through your eyelashes with a good mascara will make a difference to your look.
Adding lip colour will really finish off your look. Lip crayons are easy and quick to use and don’t require the blotting and precision that lipstick does, and looks more natural which is perfect for your summer nighttime style. Apply from one side to the other, with no need to blot. Depending on your preference, you can use a brighter colour for a more stand out look, or choose a more nude style for a natural look.
