5 Celebrity-Inspired Makeup Ideas for All Your Summer Events
With the first day of summer right around the corner, there's a good chance your schedule over the next few months is about to be jam-packed with barbeques and family picnics. Let us handle the beauty inspiration for your outdoor festivities while you take care of the outfit selections. Here, makeup ideas, courtesy of five stunning celebs.
Make It Matte
For those out there with oily skin, your face might be shinier than ever now that the mercury is rising. Opt for a matte formula in a neutral palette like Rita Ora's to keep the gloss at bay. We like Rimmel London BB Cream Matte ($11, target.com) for its hydrating yet oil-absorbing properties—and the essential built-in SPF 15!
Make a Statement
A cool cat eye like Zoe Kravitz's is the quintessential look for any gal with a long day ahead. Graphic inky black liner is equally appropriate from a day party to an evening soiree. Trace your lids with a waterproof formula like YSL Beauty Dessin Du Regard Waterproof Mechanical Stylo Pencil in Black ($30, yslbeauty.com) to make it last from AM to PM.
After a long, cold winter, it's finally time to break out lightweight makeup and feminine glosses made for summer. To recreate Zendaya's fresh look, try a sheer foundation with a dewy finish like CoverGirl UltraSmooth Foundation ($17; drugstore.com) and a glossy lip color like CoverGirl Queen Collection Colorlicious Gloss in Caribbean Coral ($8; drugstore.com).
When all else fails, channel your inner Marilyn Monroe with a true-red lip and feathered lashes. Miranda Kerr's Hollywood glamour-esque look is as effortless as it is stunning. Just swipe on a creamy red lipstick like Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Poppy Pop ($18, clinique.com)—and apply individual lashes if you want to go the extra mile.
