Incorporating Color into your Summer Beauty Routine

By: Olive Thompson

I’ll admit it, in the summer, I go bare faced more than I don’t. I love makeup + have no problem trying a variety of different makeup products, but who wants to spend all summer putting on makeup just to have it melt off? My solution? Simple pops of color. I compiled a short list of colorful product recommendations that you can easily slip into your makeup routine!



Colourpop: Saigon Liquid Lip

It’s no news that red lips are a staple. On lazy days, a bold lip makes it look like I spent hours on my makeup–even if it’s just brows + mascara! Colourpop carries some of the most long lasting liquid lipsticks–seriously ladies, they are popsicle proof! Saigon is one of my favorite bright reds in their collection. Best part? You can’t beat that price!






LOLI Beauty: Blue Cornflower Water

Our featured brand this month is LOLI Beauty + they have some amazing, naturally colored products that do wonders on your skin! I am super excited to have added the Blue Cornflower Water to my skincare routine. The best kind of color is Earth-Friendly!



Alamar Cosmetics: Reina Del Caribe Palette

To be honest, I don’t wear much eye shadow in the summer. It’s just going to be covered up by my sunglasses right? I live for light + fresh summer makeup looks, but when I do decide to rock some eye shadow, I always gravitate toward Almar’s Reina Del Caribe Palette. The vibrant blue shade called Varadero is impossible not to try out! Plus, if you’re feeling neutral, you have that option too.



NYX: Felt Tip Colored Eyeliner

In my opinion, NYX has the best drugstore colored eyeliners on the market. Their Felt Tip Colored Eyeliner instantly changes up your look + I LOVE wearing these in the summer. The felt tip makes it easy to apply so you can be out the door in minutes. 





Pacifica: Crystal Superdust Charged Highlighters

Duo-chrome + multi colored highlighter s have been on trend for awhile now. Pacifica, the 100% vegan and cruelty free brand, offers one of my favorite colorful makeup items. Their Crystal Superdust Charged Highlighter is the perfect mix of subtle and statement. Using a colorful highlighter is a quick + easy way to spice up your look. The best part? The buildable formula puts you in charge of how much of a statement you make!


So if you’re interested in stepping up your makeup game with a little bit of color… be sure to check out these products! May your summer (+ makeup) be as bright + bold as you are! Have a wonderful rest of the week Beau Babes.
