This year, it seems as if there is no limit to the color palettes that can be used for summer eye makeup. It's all about fun and flirty, bold and sassy. Regardless of your color choice, there is one important step you will want to make sure you follow before applying your eye makeup. This is important no matter the time of year; however summer makes it exceptionally important, as humidity tends to keep makeup from setting properly. You will want to invest in a decent primer or foundation base. This allows your eye makeup to set and reduces the chances of it rubbing off or smearing. It also helps against creases and will keep it looking fresh even as you rush about your day.
If you are looking for the sun kissed and natural glow, muted colors, such as pearlescent pinks and beiges look gorgeous, regardless of the skin tone or eye color. These are a classic choice. However, with inspirations such as Katy Perry and Lady Gaga taking beauty and style to a whole new level, women are beginning to experiment with bold colors. You can mix and match different color palettes to create your own palette or stick with just one shade for a casual look. Red, blue, and purple work well for almost everyone. If you are working with more than just one color, always place the lightest color near the corners of your eyes near your nose. This will prevent your eyes from looking misshapen and will help to open up your face and draw the attention to your eyes. The hue should also become lighter as you move closer to the brow, with the darkest color concentrated on the crease and towards the outer corners of your eye. Whether you are going for a natural or bold look, you should always work with three different shades. The lightest being at your brow and corners of your eye, the darkest at your creases, and the middle shade on your eyelid.
