Summer is here and what’s trending is bold, beautiful pops of crazy color. From nails to lips to liners, go bright and be bold! Nails are the easiest way to play with crazy fun summer shades like orange, hot pink, neon yellow and lime green.
My top summer picks are M2MDamoreJon Nail Polish in Sour Puss and Lemon Drop and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Kook A Mango ($6.59, target.com) and Shrimply Devine ($6.48, walmart.com). You can always pair a vibrant nail with a punch of color on the face but I’d rather you don’t match hues. Try an orange nail with a red lip or a green liner with a coral nail to look modern.
On lips, brights look so great with a tanned summer glow, so pair your bronzer with a flashy smile. I’m obsessed with MAC Mineralize Rich in Lady At Play ($22, maccosmetics.com) and Bite Beauty Cuvee Cream Deluxe Lipstick in Cuvee Coral ($34, sephora.com) and wear these corals with a swirl of bronzer and black mascara only.
Play up your eyes with an electric shock of blue or green using waterproof liners that won’t move if you are swimming in the ocean or pool. Try Make Up For Ever Aqua Liners in #4 or #5 ($23, sephora.com) or CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Jade ($6.74, target.com) and keep the rest of the face neutral so the eyes make the main statement.
Cheeks can get in on the action, too, with Jose Maran’s Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape ($22, sephora.com) and wear it with a sweep of golden bronze on the eyes, black mascara and a hot pink tinted sheer lip product like Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Stain ($24, sephora.com).
