7 Simple Ways To Manage Oily Skin In Summer


Bold Bunch

We usually play with bright colours, never with the bold. Yellow, pink and golden are the shades we tend to deviate towards. This summer, be a little bold and choose blue, greens and purples. Blue eyeshadow has been the hottest trend in make-up for quite some time. The best thing is you can have the most neutral make-up on but adding a hint of bold shade to the eyes makes the look fierce and oh so stunning. Pair a glossy lip shade with this and you have the best party make-up on.


Barely-There Eyeshadow

The charm of natural make-up, also known as ‘no makeup' make-up can not be denied. With an eyeshadow that blends completely with your skin tone and is hard to make out, your natural features get enhanced in the best way possible. All you need is an eyeshadow that matches your skin tone, a lip shade that compliments your skin and an eyebrows pencil to create a look that is soft, subtle and stunning.


Shiny Cheeks

Shiny cheeks have been the most admired make-up trend in the last few months. And it is one trend that is perfect for the summer season. The sunlight hitting the high points of your face brings the best of this look and may you look like a Goddess. Highlighters have always been a make-up product that can lift even the simplest of the looks. But, the summer season is when you can see the highlighter in its most charming self.


Nudest Lips

Nude lipsticks are nothing new, They are nude, beautiful and we love them. They are tricky though. With our limited exploration of nude lipsticks, we often are disappointed with the nude lipsticks that we think will look best on us. Mind you, there is a nude lip shade for everyone. You just have to take your time and find it. Recently, the trend has taken a shift. Now you will divas wearing the nudest shades of lipstick. The best thing about this is that with your colourful and beautiful summer attires, nude lipsticks help to balance the look. The trick here is to get a nude lipstick that is almost similar to your natural skin tone.
