Summer Makeup Inspo to Get Your Shine On

Make a splash this season with these summer makeup essentials.

No, summer 2020 is not cancelled. Even if quarantine means you can’t spend as much time outside as you’d like, it’s still a reason to dip into your favorite beauty products and create incredible summer makeup looks for day and night. In fact, the extra time at home may even inspire you to try more experimental summer makeup trends – like a sunset cut crease or watermelon-themed eye art. You know, something that you can run by your coworkers first on a Zoom call before wearing it to a concert.

As temperatures start to rise, it’s easy to get into the summer makeup mood and start shopping for your favorite seasonal products. From smoldering eye looks to a classic bronzed glow, here are four summer makeup products you need in your routine this season.

Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette by Maybelline, $14

Social distancing measures mean you can’t have that summer picnic just yet, but you can still get a taste of lemonade and summer makeup looks with this palette from Maybelline. Each of the 12 hues is citrus-scented and has names like Ice Pop, Sunnies, and Main Squeeze to put you in that summer mood. Put on a good playlist and blend bold and neutral hues inspired by sandy beaches and sensual sunsets.

Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer – Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30 by bareMinerals, $32

We’ve all been there – you want to look cute for your poolside selfie, without heat melting the summer makeup off your face. The struggle is real, but it doesn’t have to be. Use this tinted moisturizer by bareMinerals for a boost of hydration and radiant glow that looks natural and effortless.

Is it really summer makeup without a sun-kissed glow? Choose RiRi’s favorite highlighter in the shade Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny for a touch of soft bronzed champagne shimmer – perfect for subtle daytime glow or evening intensity.

Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer by Glow Recipe, $39

Watermelon is to summer what this moisturizer is to dewy, radiant skin. Containing watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, this formula has a lightweight texture that absorbs quickly and lasts all day long, helping to brighten complexion and keep skin looking sweet all summer.

Rainforest Of The Sea Radiance Drops by Tarte, $39

Just like most things that Tarte does, these drops of radiance are basically perfection. Made with coconut oil, vitamin E, and jojoba oil, you can add a few drops to your skin during the day for a pearlescent shine that’s noticeable but not too extra, or add them to your foundation or lipstick at night for that summer glow.
