5 Ways to Go Green with Your Makeup This Summer
Summer is here with its promise of long, lazy afternoons and the evenings full of crickets’ songs. And it’s that time of year again when you simply can’t resist experimenting with makeup products to complement the bright, cheerful summer dresses. This summer, let’s give something back to the Mother Nature and reduce our carbon footprint on the planet by indulging in sustainable cosmetics that are not only eco-friendly but also gentler to the skin. We have compiled some of the trending summer makeup looks for all the fashionistas out there to spend their summers in style and on a positive note.
Add a captivating charm to your look with sultry, seductive makeup that is perfect for formal occasions and even for romantic dates. Even out your skin tone with the all-natural "un" cover-up by RMS Beauty for a smooth finish. Dab your eyes with the glamorous Fruit Pigmented Quartz Eye Shadow by 100% Pure to make your eyes glimmer as they catch the light. Don’t forget to dust a bit of it under your lower lid for an irresistible appeal. Make your cheekbones pop through generous use of Sundreams Lotus Infused Bronzer Duo by Pacifia. Paint your lips with the Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick in Happy Honey and you are all set to make the heads turn everywhere you go.
Add a touch of cool surrealism and haughtiness to your look with a serenely shaded eyeliner that is bound to add charisma to your personality while imparting an unruffled aura at the same time. What you need to pull off this look is Flowercolor Natural Liquid Foundation by Ecco Bella for smoothed out skin. Line your upper eyelid with Vapour Mesmerize Eyeliner in Viper Decadent Plum, keeping as close to the lid line as possible for a neat, unperturbed effect. Complete the look with Ilia Funnel of Love lip color and saunter off into the day with a cool and confident demeanor.
Nothing beats a cute summery blushing look that goes well with the floral summer dresses. This makeup look includes the use of a primer like Studio 78 Paris Luminous Primer "We Take Some Fresh Air" set off with a light dusting of Ilia Fade into You, instead of using a heavy foundation. Next, brush over your cheekbones with the striking Flowercolor Blush Refills by Ecco Bella to add an attractive tinge of color to your cheekbones. For your eyes, go for a casually minimalistic effect with Black Tea Long Last Liquid Eye Liner by 100% Pure and RMS Beauty mascara to add depth to your eyes. Coat your lips generously with Pacifia Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter in Shell Matte Pink and glow away into the day.
Set the hearts ablaze by sporting a bold red pout with toned down eye makeup. The trick is to keep your skin bare with Ilia Moondance SPF 20. Go for a sheer eyeshade like RMS Beauty eye polish to bring out your lips more than the eyes. Bronze out your cheeks with RMS Buriti Bronzer for extra definition. Now comes the most important part of this look. Paint your lips with a fiery shade of Ilia Wild Child and you are all good to bring out your inner goddess like a true style diva.
