How to Do Eye Makeup for Summer
The Best Makeup to Wear Summer 2011
This season's runways are all about emphasizing a woman's natural beauty, so this summer, you don't have to go overboard with eye makeup to turn heads.
Keeping things simple and subtle is a great way to enhance your natural beauty and bring focus to the eyes. Think of a nude colored eyeshadow with shimmer to bring a natural sparkle to the eye. Skip the eyeliner and opt for two coats of lengthening mascara. This look is a winner that no one will be able to resist.
If color is your true calling, take advantage of this season to wear vibrant summer colors. Turquiose, green, yellow and orange are some of this season's top runners. Right behind are purple and pink.
For a runway inspired look, apply the color shadow to the entire lid up to the crease. Apply black gel liner to the top lid, keeping as close to the lash line as possible. Next, take a white eyeliner and line the bottom water line. Take a white-pearl eyeshadow and apply it on the lower eyelid and the inner corners of the eyes. Finish off with a coat of mascara on the top lashes only.
Colors like champagne and golden browns are a hot way to dress to your eyes. Begin with the lightest color on the upper lid, apply a darker shade at the crease and the darkest shade across the eyelid (below the crease). Now blend your colors downward for a smooth smoky effect. Starting at the top of the lid will prevent your darker color from overpowering the lighter colors.
Line the top and bottom eyelids with a dark brown gel liner (gel has a longer staying power, which is perfect for hot weather). Apply two coats of volumizing mascara to your lashes for an extra oomph.
