Labor Day Weekend is a few nights away, which means fall is just around the corner. In beauty speak? Now is your last chance to try out those warm weather makeup trends you’ve been meaning to rock all season.
Here are the six that should make your long weekend bucket list:
- Popsicle Lips
Your favorite cool treat inspired one of summer’s biggest beauty hits, and it’s super easy to DIY. What exactly is a popsicle pout? The gradient lip look is basically a softly smudged stain featuring saturated color in the middle of your pucker that seeps out to the corners of the mouth. Think: what your lips looked like after eating a cherry popsicle as a kid. We break it down step-by-step here.
- Gold, Gold, Gold
There’s nothing like achieving that perfect summer glow, and gold is hotter than ever. Add instant luminosity to your skin with our favorite products in the hue – we promise you’ll be sparkling when the sun hits.
- Watercolor Eyes
After we spotted watercolor eye makeup on the spring/summer 2017 runways, we couldn’t wait to try it out. The combination of pastel colors is a perfect take on the smokey eye for hotter days – it doesn’t overpower, but still stands out. This dreamy mix of soft sparkling hues instantly had us hooked. Follow our tutorial here.
- Dewy Skin
The key to no-makeup makeup? A great moisturizer, concealer, and highlighter. Forego foundation and brighten your complexion with a nourishing moisturizer. Next, smartly conceal any blemishes with a light hand. Brighten up by adding highlighter on your cheekbones, the inner corners of your eyes, and dabbing a swipe on your lips. Finish by grooming your lashes and brows with clear mascara.
- Bold Blush
Summer is the best time to experiment with bright colors, and there’s no place like your cheeks to test the waters. You’ll grab attention in our matte blushes, which are buildable to help you achieve the desired intensity. Try Apricot or Vibrant Pink for a bold flush of color that will give you a flawless, natural glow.
- Smudgy and Smokey
In the summertime, eyeliner is best served imperfect. No matter if you choose black or navy (or even something more daring like purple), right now it’s all about the imprecise application. Trace the pencil around your peepers and give it a good smudge to create a sooty look – bonus points if it looks like you slept in it the night before.
