Summer is the perfect season for the noncommittal types. It’s three months of fun in the sun where almost anything goes. And that applies to beauty routines, too. This season, opt for a summer fling so fleeting it washes away with your evening cleanser.  summer beauty looks

Sunset Eye Shadow

Eyes that match the sunset may be a little much for your standard weekday evening. But for a smashing summer soiree, they’re just right.  

Gradient Eyeliner

By the time June rolls around you’re probably feeling pretty comfortable with the aqua, teal and cobalt eyeliner, but one night this summer take your winged eyeliner up a notch and try it gradient style.  

Two-Toned Pucker

Can’t decide between your favorite bright summer lip colors? Wear them both! The Two-Toned Lip looks especially fabulous in pink and orange and baby pink and fuchsia.  

Pop of Neon

Forget the standard uses for all of your favorite colored liners. Try applying a neon eyeliner along the waterline or one these other colored eyeliner looks.  

Jewel-Toned Smoky Eyes

An intense smoky eye probably feels a bit seasonally inappropriate this time of year. Change the black or brown to a vivid jewel tone and suddenly it’s not only seasonal, but also stunning.   What beauty looks do you love to wear in the summer (even if it’s only once)?
