Have you been using the same makeup routine all year? Now that summer is here, it’s time to change it up! Something about this season makes us want to look our best, so there’s no better time to try a new look. 

If you need some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! There are countless gorgeous makeup trends this season, and we’ve rounded up 5 of the best.

Keep reading to find your next summer makeup look!

1. Long and Wispy Lashes 

This summer, take a break from the dramatic false eyelashes. Instead, replace them with long and wispy styles! They feel much lighter and look less intense.

Your lashes should draw some attention to the eyes while not taking away from the entire look. If you’re not confident in applying them, consider makeup lessons to learn how to improve!

2. Bright Colored Eyeliner

Say goodbye to your usual black or brown liner, and start playing around with color instead! Vibrant graphic eyeliners are one of the most popular makeup trends right now. Buy one in every color of the rainbow!

Colored liners have so much potential, too. You can experiment with different linework and shapes around your eyes to create works of art. Coordinate different colors with your outfits, or use the liners as a subtle pop of color against neutrals.

3. Natural and Glowy Skin

The glass skin look has been in for a while now, so you can still expect it to be among most 2021 makeup trends. A fresh face just feels much better in the heat! Plus, you won’t have to worry about any makeup melting off.

Try it out by opting for minimal face makeup, like a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer. You might even choose to skip it completely! Finish the look off by adding your favorite cream highlighter on the high points of your face.

4. Thick and Fluffy Brows

Maintenance-free brows are a must-have nowadays. The best way to get them is by trying semi-permanent makeup! But if you don’t have time for an appointment, try brushing your eyebrows up with clear brow gel. 

Seriously — that’s all you have to do.

Fluffy brows are one of the best makeup trends this season! They look runway-ready, and they’re so easy to achieve.

5. Golden Eye Makeup

Everyone loves a good golden hour moment! That’s why recreating it as a makeup look on the eyes has become so trendy. It looks stunning in person and in pictures!

If this is one of the summer makeup trends you want to try, you’ll need a few different eyeshadows. Most of the look will use rich bronze, gold, and copper shades. Pops of burgundy or deep orange tie everything together!

To top it off, add some gold glitter. This perfect finishing touch will catch the sunlight just right during golden hour!
