The best makeup colors for Summer

Summer Makeup Color

Everyone knows that summer is a hot season, and dark and warm colors can absorb heat; so we should not use dark colors like black and dark blue at all. Instead of these colors, we can use cool and neutral colors such as yellow, white, gray, light pink and etc.

  • Lipstick: In summer, the lips dry out due to the heat. Therefore, it is better to use lip gloss, which is a booster and stays on the lips for a long time. But if you want to use lipstick, choose bright colors such as bright pink or bright red.
  • Eye shadow: In this season, it’s better to use neutral and shiny colors for eye shadow, like orchid or violet. Dark and heavy eye shadows are not suitable for summer makeup.
  • Blusher: The color of blusher can be the same as the color of eye shadow. In this season, light colors such as light pink are also recommended for blusher.

This season is almost in the middle of the year and it has colors from the first and second half of the year. You can use most colors in this season.

  • Lipstick: Mild lipsticks in autumn help you to make your face more attractive. Using colors such as brown, crimson and orange can create a good harmony with your appearance. However, if you don’t want to use these lipsticks, you can use lip gloss or colorless or very light gloss lipsticks. Applying dark lipsticks on pale skin (due to cold) is a good choice for this season that doubles your beauty.

This color has different shades and It’s very impressive. You can mix purple shades and create a new color. You can also use slate blue, lilac or dark purple.

  • Eye shadow: Using glossy eye shadows with gold, bronze, copper and metallic tones are good options for winter eye makeup. Using dark purple and brown can also make your eyes look more attractive in this season. Do not forget to use silver eye shadow in the corner of your eyes at the end.
