Top 5 Summer Makeup Colors to Try

Monday, July 01, 2013

This Summer is all about color! Brighten up any outfit or makeup looking using a pop of color to really stand out. Here are the top 5 trending summer colors- a must try for any fashion forward elfette!

1. Hot Pink: Whether its' bold lips, cheeks, or even eyeshadow, hot pink is on our radar! Try a hot pink lip using our Lipstick in 'Sociable'. For those of us less daring ladies out there, try our Studio Blush in 'Pink Passion' for a bright flush. If you're going to try hot pink eyeshadow, make sure to wear black eyeliner and mascara, as eyes can look sick with redish hues.

2. Teal: A summer must have! Everyone wants to let our their inner mermaid when the Summer sun rolls in, and aqua is the way to go! Line eyes with our Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in 'Twinkle Teal' or try full on eyeshadow with our Pigment Eyeshadow in 'Tropical Teal'. For long wearing waterproof results, check out our Cream Eyeliner in 'Teal Tease'. And don't forget those nails! For the PERFECT teal shade on your fingers and toes this summer, try our Nail Polish in 'Teal Blue'.

3. Tangerine: This citrus shade always makes us feel Summer ready. Swap out those red lips for a Tangerine lip (try our Lipstick in 'Captivating'). Go for soft peaches on the eyes, and switch up your blush to an apricot/coral shade! Try our Studio Blush in 'Peachy Keen'.

4. Purple: Leave your plum lips and plum eyeshadows at home and save them for fall! This Summer is all about bright poppy shades of purple. Apply Lilac to the eyes for the perfect pop of pastel using the perfect purple-infused eyeshadow quad- our Brightening Eye Color in 'Silver Lining'. Or go bold with Electric Purple- try our Pigment Eyeshadow in 'Passionate Purple' for the perfect pop of color.

5. Yellow: As crazy as yellow may seem, it's actually really fun! Spruce up nails with a lemon-like yellow shade for a mani that'll make everyone stare (try our 3 Piece Nail Polish set in 'Beautifully Bright'). For a more subtle take on this color trend, try gold! Apply gold shimmer to the tops of the cheekbones, or rock some subtle gold liner on the inner rims of the eyes! Try our Brightening Eyeliner in 'Gold'.

Which Summer color will YOU guys try?

Teal. It is such a gorgeous color and I think it just says "summer"! It looks amazing with gold.
