5 Bright and Bold Looks to Try This Summer

Rosy cheeks, neon eyeliner – this summer anything goes


Ludwig Mies van Der Rohe might have coined the phrase ‘less is more’ to describe his minimalist style in the early 50s, but as of 2019 the motto has moved beyond the realm of architecture and become the world’s preferred approach to aesthetics in general –  and summer makeup is no exception. 

And with scorching temperatures climbing everyday, it’s the best way to go. But that doesn’t mean a barely there approach is the only option. The real secret to summer makeup? Bright colours. 

Whether its eyes, lips or cheeks, adding a bit of intensity goes a long way whilst keeping things minimal. Think ultra-rosy cheeks with a nude lip, barely-there foundation with neon eyeliner, and bright bold lips with glossy lids. 

So rather than letting your eyeshadow palettes and blushers collect dust this summer, it’s time to pull them out and try one of these looks for your next night out.
