Ladies, Summer calls for brighter hues, experimentation and going out of the box with your makeup routine. Makeup guru Hira Khan brings you four easy breezy looks that will addÂ some fun and adventure to your looks.
A mix of ice blue, grey and cobalt blue forÂ the eyes with a lilac-pinkish pout is all youÂ need for a day out! I personally love theÂ Luscious Cosmetic Face Contour Kit,Â which goes perfectly with our skinÂ tone and blends in without making youÂ look caked or overdone. Add a touchÂ of drama to your eyes with L’OrÃ©alâ€™sÂ Million Lashes Mascara.Â ComplimentÂ this classicÂ look with aÂ simple ponyÂ tail, andÂ you’re allÂ set to go, girl!
Because black and silver/gold smokyÂ eyes are too mainstream, here I haveÂ for you a burgundy and brown smokyÂ eyes with nude lips to set fire to theÂ hot summer days!Â The MAC BurgundyÂ Palette is perfect forÂ this, as each shadeÂ blends in to createÂ that perfect smokeyÂ effect. ComplimentÂ this look with a sleekÂ hair up do and you’llÂ be no less than aÂ red carpet diva.
Lilac and purple hues on the eyes may seem like a big risk, but I promise you itâ€™s not as over the top as it may sound. Paired with pink lips, this glam yet fun Summer look is perfect for a night out! I personally love the liquid lipsticks by Massarat Misbah (Magento, pictured on the right, is a personal favourite shade) that come in bright shades which make your look pop. This diva look can be complimented by loose curls or a voluminous blow dry and you’ll surely be turning heads!
Girl on fire
If you’re ever confused about what to go with when you wear all black, this is it! Make a statement by g playing with colours like burnt orange, maroon, gold and chocolate brown. The key here is contouring, and Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer is my go-to for a sultry yet feminine look like this. Inglot has some great shades to experiment with, so be bold and see how far you are willing to play with your look. This cut crease look along with plumÂ and maroon lips isÂ perfect to go with an all black dressÂ of yours!
