Summer Makeup Trends

 
 

When I think of summer, I think of bright, fun, adventurous—which is exactly how you should be wearing your makeup this season! These colorful applications are a great way to switch up your same-ole, same-ole makeup routine. 


 
Start with a fresh face of makeup for each of these looks. Follow Spencer’s easy to follow directions on perfect skin, Tone Correction 101. Afterwards, go crazy with these fun looks below.
 
 
*Teal Eyeliner
Caribbean vibes with this oceanic color swiped on your lower lid. Teal is gorgeous, but try other shades of blue as well!

Below is my friend Lizzie Chafin, a local yoga instructor at Charleston Power Yoga and dancer at Dance FX (Go take classes there!). She is all about the teal liner trend, and likes to line only her bottom lid + mascara. It is so simple but immediately takes your look from dull to exciting! 
 
 
 
*Bright Lipstick
Perfect for summer- hot, hot, hot!  
-From the runway
 
 
 
-To Charleston!
Local artist Becca Barnet (CHECK HER STUFF OUT ASAP *amazing*) is rocking a gorgeous bright pink lip. Keeping the eye minimal with solely mascara and manicured brows, the neon pink lip makes a bold impact.  
 
 
 
 
*White Eyeliner
Wear as much white as you can all summer long, even on your eyes!
-From the runway
 
 
 
 
-To Charleston!
A simple swipe of white eyeliner on the top lid, a little mascara, and a clear gloss on the lip is the perfect summer fresh face. I even wore it to the beach with my white suit! 
 
 
 
 
*Pink Shadow
Don’t be shy. This is basically a “smokey” eye, but with color. It my seem scary at first, but go for it! (Oh, and it looks especially good with green eyes!) 
-From the runway
 
 
 
-To Charleston!
Wagener Terrace resident, my friend Brittany Helms, wears the pink shadow perfectly! It looks gorgeous with her eye color.
 
 
 
 
*Bronze Eye
We all look a little better once the summer sun has hit our skin, and a bronze eye on top of bronzed skin could not be a better combo.
-From the runway
 
 
 
-To Charleston!
I did a little golden/broze shadow on top and then soft underneath as well. Paired with a light pink gloss, I love this look for summer time. 
 
 
 
 
*Colored Mascara
Talk about fun! What could be more colorful, summery and awesome than COLORED mascara! 
-From the runway
 
 
 
 
-To Charleston!
Local fashionista, and new mother of twins, Claire Slover was spotted rocking green mascara with a hot pink lip. It’s surprisingly subtle, but what a fun, foxy look.
 
 
 
 
*Colored lips
Do you dare? If you “just can’t” with the yellow or blue colors, try a purple or orange, which are closer to your more routine red, corals, etc…making it easy to pull off! (Though I encourage you to try every color of the rainbow!)

I am obsessed with colored lips. Personal fave is purple- very wearable.
 
 
 
 
Where can you find makeup so bright? One of my favorite spots is right around the corner, Beauty & Beyond (1015 King St, right next to Food Lion and CVS on upper King). Everything there is so cheap! And look at some of the awesome stuff they have, including colored mascara, colored eyeliners, any color lipstick you could possibly ask for, and endless shadows. (Priced $1.99-$3.99)
