Haute List 5 mask-friendly summer makeup trends


It is getting warmer out, especially on the days when summer monsoon spare us. So it is also time to change how we dress up and style ourselves. Though summer 2020 is a bit difficult and every big occasion has either been postponed or toned down, this is no excuse. It is time to try bright eye shadows, radiant foundations and glowing highlighters.

Here we have listed down some of our favorite makeup looks by the celebrities that you can copy the next time you step out of the house. Given that face masks are most likely the new norm in future, the trends focus on heavier eyes and lighter lips.

Satin Lips


Opt for a lipstick that is not very glossy and not completely matte, i.e. a satin finish is most practical to be worn inside a face mask. Dark colors will most likely smear and leave a stain on your mask. Take a hint from Ayeza Khan’s soft and subtle shade.

Sun-Kissed Glow

Glowing skin always looks healthy, but nothing screams ‘summer’ like sun-kissed skin and eyes. Take a look at Mawra’s skin to see how to ace an allover radiant look.

Graphic Eyeliner

Get your fine-tip gel eyeliner out and make a sleek cat eye. Some designs look ever cooler if you add negative space and draw a clean line above the crease of your eye and connect it to the wing. Take reference from Sonya Hussyn’s perfectly rimmed eyes.

Purple Eyeshadow

Bold eye makeup is the latest trend, but purple is a runaway hit. From lavender to violet, shades of purple look pretty on everyone. Take Zara Peerzada’s bold look created for Rehmat Ajmal’s sari. This is a perfect example of how to incorporate color into your summer makeup. Though we see a dark purple lip here, it is best to avoid it unless you are too confident to pull it off like Zara.

Tons of Blush

The one makeup product you need for this look is preferably pink blush. If you tend yo get easily flushed in hot weather, just go for tons of blush on smooth skin. Sarah Khan is our inspiration here.
