I spotted these 10 different looks of color blocking, bright colors, soft and classic eye makeup simply to spice up your look.

Color Blocking Lower Line

This was from Fendi Spring Summer 2013, is something you don’t wear daily but I find it interesting. Instead of makeup, they used thin fabric material and stuck it on the lower lash line which gives quite a strong statement.

Aquatic Blue

Lancome Aquatic Summer 2013 shares a deeper blue with gold eye shadow at the inner corners creating a sophiscated look. For the brows are on the brown hues to soften the eye makeup.

Soft and Wispy

The combination of a few soft eye shadows shades makes the look colorful and the wispy lashes makes it look softer and romantic. This is from Shu Uemura Spring Summer 2013 and the colorful shadows goes along the lower lash line to and it doesn’t have to be symmetrical on both eyes.

Multi Cool Liners

Warm Colors

Mac Makeup Spring Summer 2013 brings the warmer shades and who says its only meant for fall season?  Combining bright orange and soften it at the crease then dust the middle above the crease with soft red eye shadow. No heavy eye liners and neutral lashes.

Mutual Color With Mascara

Just as I mentioned bright colors, in Donna Karen Spring Summer 2013, they are pairing bright eye shadows that goes all the way to the mascara. Yes, instead of the classic brown or black mascara, they use colored mascara to bring more colors to the eyes.

Mermaid Inspired

This is something outstanding and not something that we can wear daily but in Christian Dior Spring Summer 2013 is worth looking at. Its similar to mermaid and the rhinestones glams up the look, making it much more different from the others.

Platinum Eyes

On the other side, Chanel Spring Summer 2013 brings us the futuristic look by using only metallic silver eye shadow, black eye liner to define eyes and voluminous lashes. Silver eye shadow can be as versatile as neutral tones depending on how you want to wear it.

Soft Twiggy

Flash back to the 1960s, Marc Jacob Spring Summer 2013 brings us the Twiggy inspired look. Instead of having the outstanding lashes from the original, they only use black eye shadows to go on the crease line and to define eyes but with softer blend.

Poppin’ That Hot Summer 2013 Lips

Earlier I mentioned about how tie dye nails would be the hot nails for this summer 2013. Remember to check those nails out because it was so easy to achieve, you just need the patience to wait for it to dry. This time we are looking on those hot lips to rock on this season and the colour can be huge throughout the year. Spotted a few stunning lip colors from numerous runway.

Orange Lips

Orange shade lip color is no strange color since early this year and this is the shade that is being pretty huge of the year. This was during Moschino Spring Summer 2013 and it gives a beautiful pop of color to the entire look.

Nude Pink Lips

Don’t worry if you cannot put yourself to those bright lips, nude pink lips simply gives you that innocent and healthy lips. Remember its nude pink, not nude. The difference is that nude pink has that pink finish whilst nude is just a shade that is very close to your skin color.

Dual Tone Lips

If you dare to be different, dual tone lips is another hot lips trend for this summer. This was spotted in Holly Fulton Spring Summer 2013 combining totally two playful colors for the lips. It stands out so much  even if you have neutral makeup.

Matte Lips

Matte finish lips has gotten in trend since a year or two in Malaysia and this goes great especially if you have naturally thick lips. Even if you don’t have thick lips, just lip liner, highlight and contouring will help to get that pucker lips. Just remember that matte formulas can be drying if you have dry lips.

 

Which would be your summer lips pick?
