Everything about summer is lighter. Clothes get smaller, the fabrics get thinner, hair goes up, and makeup gets a makeover. Triple digit heat demands it. The dramatic looks we love in the cold months suddenly feel like way too much when the temperatures rise.
If you have a cool skin tone, follow the winter color analysis or any other color theory clothing program that recommends bold colors, the (literally) black and white ideas behind makeup can feel so harsh and excessive when it’s so hot.
Even though I love bold colors, especially on my lips, sometimes less is more in the makeup department. I’ve searched for a few years to find a natural looking summer makeup look that would still flatter me while giving me a more natural look. YEARS, ladies. This took me years. I’ve stumbled across each of these items one at a time, and it’s finally come together.
It works great with the more natural lip color I am wearing in the video, and with a bold lip. This is a great year-round, quick and easy, every day look when you want some definition on your face but don’t want to wear something more dramatic, but I especially love it in the summer.
I’ve worn this every day this summer, so if you’ve seen my makeup in the other videos and photos, this is what I’ve had on. If you are a soft classic or a cute classic, you may especially enjoy this lighter makeup look for every day.
