While the weather might be looking a little dreary for the summer months ahead, that doesn’t mean our glam game has to suffer alongside it. Instead, it’s the perfect way to add a little joy into our beauty routines, with makeup that is colourful, bold and a little daring at times. Here, some of the recent eyeshadow, skin and lip looks that have captured our attention, and the products you’ll want to equip yourself with to emulate them.
Florence Pugh has always been an adventurous beauty player, so it’s fitting she’s come through with the year’s most unexpected, yet stunning, eyeshadow colour — yellow. Makeup artist Alex Babsky was behind the look, which was perfectly complemented with a light coral lip.
This should come as no surprise, but icy blue palettes are once again putting a Y2K-inspired twist on our glam games this season. Whether it’s modern and subtle like Gemma Chan’s red carpet makeup or Kendall Jenner’s all-over shadow, expect to see the cool hue everywhere come summer.
For those looking to create a serious statement, look to the vampy lip colours that have been popping up. Vanessa Kirby’s deep red lip is perfectly paired with a slick bun, and fluttering lashes and brows to finish off the sleek, sultry glam.
Sometimes, it’s best to let the skin do all the talking. If you’re after a more minimal look this season, take cues from Margot Robbie and Kathryn Newton, who keep things simple with subtle pinks and eye-catching highlights.
