Five ‘Lush Looks’ You Should Ace This Summer

Five ‘Lush Looks’ You Should Ace This Summer


With summer already here, let’s give our skin a chance to breathe as we go for makeup looks that are fresh, dewy and perfect for the hot weather. We definitely don’t want melting makeup faces, panda eyes or patchy foundation marks. So don’t let OTT and overdone makeup looks become a hindrance to your path to the perfect summer style. Get those makeup trends of the season on point and we can guarantee you that it will be a summer to remember for all the good reasons. Here are some trendy summer lush looks that you can slay in, this season!


The Resting Work Face

The act of waking up early in the morning for work and trying to get your hair and makeup done on time is much more difficult than it sounds. That’s the reason, ladies, you need a makeup look that takes half the time and makes double the impact. For starters, begin by priming your face as the primer will help to keep your makeup in place all day with little or no touch-ups at all. Go for foundations that are lighter on the skin or even BB and CC creams that give medium coverage. For eyes, keep them light as well as go light on the mascara. Clean eyeliner/kohl-lined eyes with light natural eye shadow are the way to go. Stick to light pink or peach blush hues and leave the contouring for other times. Lastly finish off the clean and crisp look with the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in shade Blushing Ambition and let this pretty pink color subtly perk up your entire face.


Brunching Beauty

Let’s admit, most of us start thinking about the beloved Sunday brunch from Thursday onwards, or maybe actually from Monday afternoon. When there’s a brunch planned with your girlfriends, you need to look your trendiest for it, right? A radiant, warm, glowing look is perfect for summer and that’s what you need to look absolutely gorgeous at the next brunch with the girls. Start off with a tinted moisturizer or a sheer foundation that easily blends into the skin. Fill in your brows using a brow liner or a brow gel to get those brows on point. Go for a rose gold or a coppery eye shadow with hints of shimmer blended well and let that mascara talk or simply curl your lashes for an au-naturale look. You can ditch the eyeliner and highlight the high points of your face using a peachy golden illuminator. Go for a pink blush to add some color to those cheeks and finish it off with a pink or coral matte lipstick. You are brunch-ready in style!


Date Night Done Right

We are currently crushing over the idea of an all-luminous look for a date night and here’s showing you how to ace it! Go for a full-coverage foundation and fill in those brows. Dress those eyelids with silver shadow and highlight the under-brows, inner corners of the eyes, the bridge of the nose and the cheekbones with a pearly highlighter. A teeny bit of dark grey shading is all you need on the outer corners of the eyes and lower waterline. Contour the cheekbones and swipe on loads of mascara for a barely there Smokey eyes and sculpted cheeks look. The cherry on the cake will be a deep and dark berry-hued lip and you can go for the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in shade Forbidden Kiss to sweep your date off his feet!


Life’s A Beach

Beach holidays are on every bucket list during summers, and the perfect beach-y look includes light yet flawless makeup to complement your holiday outfits. The hard and fast rule for a beach face is that, prior to applying makeup you have to apply a generous amount of sunscreen. Go for a tinted sunscreen so that you can avoid thick creamy formulas for your foundation or concealer. Fresh powder compacts is your go-to base product and choose a matte bronzer that looks like a natural tan without any shimmer. Make sure to go for waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and you can even opt for a bright turquoise or green kohl to add that pop of color. Consider lip stains or matte lipsticks as they stay on and you can go for a cherry red or bright fuchsia to complement your summery ensembles!


Party All Night

Weekends are for partying in style, and even if we can’t guarantee your makeup to stay on-point throughout the night, we can make sure you hit the club with a trendy party-face! A makeup look done in caramel and warm undertones is in this season, so get those lids covered in shimmery warm taupe or toffee shades and don’t shy away from faux lashes or heavy doses of mascara. Go heavy on the kohl/eye liner both on the lids and waterlines to create the perfect smoked look. Dust a golden-bronze highlighter along the cheeks and contour those cheekbones to perfection. Opt for rich velvety lip shade from the caramel/bronze/toffee/brown family – like the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in shade Nude Allude or go the bold way with the shade Shanghai Scarlet to be the star of the party!
