Style File: 5 playful makeup ideas to try this summer


August’s arrival suggest that the last stretch of summer season is upon us. With only few more months left before we start planning for fall and winter looks, here’s an opportunity to dive into a pool of bright and popping makeup. Also, make way for monsoon-inspired beauty trends as inspirations are everywhere from sherbet-colored eyelids, dramatic eye lashes to cool lip shades.

We’ve jot down five ways to celebrate the season before summer’s last sunset…


1. A pop of citrus or green



Complement your solid dresses with electric shades over the eyelids such as lemon hues or neon green. Pair it with a bright pink pout ensuring a definite double tap on your Instagram post.


2. No doubt about the pout



While popping hues like tangerine or reds are in for summer, consider swiping a dark plum shade of aubergine this month for a surprise of unexpected color.


3. Glowing skin



With the increase in humidity, there is no escape from it so better embrace it with a natural glow by adding a wash of shimmering highlighter at the temples and top of your cheekbones.


4. A hint of drama



Cat eye is season-less and charming without any conditions. A dramatic winged eyeliner goes well with western or eastern outfits. For an unusual look, layer your go-to black liner with an unexpected color.


5. Channel a bold lid



Whether it’s falsies or several layers of dramatic mascara, achieving a feathery look is so worth it. Use glittery shadows or up the ante with a cobalt-colored statement shade for a twist on the trend like Sophie Turner.
