6 Experimental Summer Makeup Looks Sunburned Cheeks
One easy way to amp your makeup routine is with blush. A flush of color is all you need to make a statement, and it’s a beginner-friendly technique. Also, you can mimic the sunburned effect without the added pain and skin peeling.

A cream or liquid blush will offer the most natural or skin-like finish. You can opt for a bright pink shade or an electric orange. Also, you can apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and on the bridge of the nose for a faux flushed finish.

Rhinestones have had their time in the spotlight, but now it’s time for pearls to have their moment. According to Pinterest Predicts, Pearlcore is a trend to watch this year.

Pearls can elevate any makeup look, especially for no-makeup-makeup. Also, stick-on pearls can be found at any craft store.

Pearls are wearable as an elegant accent during the day, or you can apply multiple for an editorial effect.

Rainbow Pastel Eyeshadow
Makeup artist Naezrah has brought new life to rainbow eyeshadow looks. Naezrah’s Rainbow Bright Under eye offers a fresh take on colorful eyeshadow. This look isn’t for the faint of heart, but it’s easily adaptable to fit any makeup style.

Pastel eyeshadows are much more forgiving to blend than neon hues. So, this beginner-friendly eyeshadow look will make a bright impression on any summer day.

Abstract Graphic Liner
It’s time to experiment with shapes! Winged eyeliner will remain a timeless and classic look, but the abstract graphic liner is making new waves. The advantage of experimenting with vivid liners is creating your own shapes.

For example, you can draw on eyeliner that follows the curves of your eyes or create an asymmetrical look. Cake eyeliners are water-activated and can glow under UV light. Also, a small thin liner brush will offer versatility and precision.

Barely There Skin
Melting makeup may not be the most flattering effect, but it can also feel heavy on the skin. However, with the rise of skincare-infused makeup, and barely-there skin, more people embrace their natural skin texture.

For example, tinted sunscreens and serum-infused foundations can care for your skin and feel virtually weightless. The Ilia Beauty C Beyond Triple Serum SPF 40 will boost the face with skin-loving ingredients while offering a tint to even the skin tone.

You don’t need to be a professional makeup artist to create an intricate eye design.

Dots are taking over and may even be here to stay. Also, you don’t need to buy extra tools or makeup. You can purchase a dotting tool, but the end of your makeup brush works just as well.

Dots can be any size or color. In addition, you can pair it with eyeshadow or leave the eyelids bare. Check out more dots-spiration with Editorial Artist Aoife.
