5 Colourful Makeup Looks I Can't Wait to Re-Create
At last, summer has arrived and while the return of sunnier days usually has me ditching the contents of my makeup bag in favour of tinted moisturisers and lip balms, the easing of lockdown restrictions means that I’m actually raring to play with new products this season. In fact, after months spent mostly inside with nobody but my 1-year-old to dress up for, I’m more than ready to step outside my comfort zone and embrace a more colourful summer makeup look than ever before. After all, it’s exactly what all the cool girls are wearing right now.
I’m not alone in this lust for brighter lipsticks and rainbow-slicked eyelids either. Four of the UK’s most beloved beauty brands—L’Oréal Paris, Maybelline, Nyx Professional Makeup and Essie—recently teamed up to find out exactly what consumers were looking forward to post-lockdown. Their research showed that 80% of makeup wearers are excited to wear more makeup after lockdown and a third of makeup wearers are feeling more experimental with their look because of the pandemic.
Thankfully, Instagram is already awash with all of the best summer makeup looks so if you’re in need of a little inspiration then you’re in the right place. From Crayola-inspired eye shadows to ’80s-esque blusher, there is so much fun to be had with makeup right now.
