Perfect Summer Look: Just a Little Pop of Color…

Summer is here which means as temperatures rise so do the chances of your makeup melting, fading, settling into creases, and sliding off your face.  So not only should you be changing your skincare regimen (unless you’re ultra-dry, swap out your usual creams for lightweight lotions) you’re going to want to downsize your makeup routine.

This summer I’ve found that just by adding a fun-colored eyeliner to my upper lash line I’ve created an instant “going out” look.  Keep in mind I have lash extensions, so you should follow with your favorite mascara.  To make sure your liner lasts the night, prime your eyelids first with concealer and/or a flesh or ivory-colored eye shadow like Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow Ivory  ($21). 

Let’s see some COLOR!!!

Green Eyeliner:

As you can see, Hayden Panettiere rocks this emerald eyeliner, making her green eyes glow. This color is perfect for both green and hazel eyes, but also makes blues eyes look more teal. I personally have dark blue eyes and I’ve been wearing the Palm Leaf (a forest green) of the Paul & Joe Las Palmas Eyeliner & Crayon Duo ($25), which makes my eyes look brighter and take on a more aqua hue.

For a bit more drama like January Jones, use a liquid green liner like MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner 4 Diamond Lagoon Green ($23) to make a thick winged eye, and then line the lower lash line with a shimmery green shadow like Urban Decay Eyeshadow Mildew ($18).
