Summer style gets real simple with these fun beauty buys.
Summer is a time for flowy fabrics, bright colours, and wavy locks. But the warmer weather also provides an excuse to take some beauty risks and explore brighter hues that have a little more shine. Here, some of our favourite beauty picks for the summer. We’ve got you covered with everything from bright lips to shimmery eye shadows.
- Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Mattes in Craving Coral
There’s no need to break the bank to try out popsicle lips—this season’s hottest trend. This shade, a mix between red and coral, pops against summer-favourite fabrics like white and yellow.
- Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Dayglow
Use this pressed powder to highlight or strobe sun-kissed cheeks—the soft bronze adds a less intense contour effect.
- Joico Blonde Life Brightening Masque
If you’re looking to brighten your hair this summer, this product is for you. Apply the formula to strands once or twice a week and—voila—no fancy salon treatments required.
- Lemonhead Spacepaste Eye Shadow in Silverlake
If there was ever a time to experiment with wilder makeup looks, like glittered eyes, summer would be it. But glitter can be a real hassle to apply. Try this glitter paste instead. The formula goes on clean (no strays!) to add some worry-free shine.
- Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Frosted
Eye gloss does the job of an eye shadow, but imparts a wet-looking shine. This rose gold shade, a must-have for warmer months, is flattering on all skin shades, too.
- Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Liquid Lip Metal in Mauve Squad
This lip colour provides full coverage and lots of shine. A great shade if you’re looking to step outside of your makeup comfort zone and try something new.
