Quirky Orange Makeup Looks

Ever since Cara Delevigne and Megan Fox wore a splash of orange on their eyelids, the fashion scene has never been the same. If you’re itching to apply a dash of burnt orange or orange creamsicle hues on your eyelids, the Too Faced “Light My Fire Mini Eyeshadow Palette” is going to be your best friend.

After all, nothing says “summertime” quite like the color orange. Feel free to give your lids a single line or tangerine, or go all-out by mixing and matching orange shades across your eyelid. You can also try on orange lipstick to see if it’s a citrusy match made in heaven.

Neon Bright Eyeshadow Looks

Rave culture may have taken a backseat in some people’s lives. But if you’re still ready to “bring the party” with electro flare, don’t hesitate to throw some neon bright eyeshadow colors on your eyelids.

Bright eyeshadow looks are the “it” look for 2022. So, if you’re someone who can’t get enough of neon blues, yellows, greens, and pinks, now’s the time to resurrect your neon palette and create stunning eyeshadow looks that steal the show.

Oh, and by the way – two-toned eyes are a major hit this year, which is perfect for neon eyeshadow-loving guys and gals out there.

Just don’t forget to pair this look with some neon apparel or get edgy with a leather outfit.

Pinky-Pie, Hi!

If you want to keep things a bit tamer than neon, you can always opt for pink. Pink is lovely, feminine, and a gorgeous shade for summertime. You can wear this dainty, colorful makeup on your eyes, cheeks, lips, or all three at once, especially with the Tarte “Tartelette™ Juicy Amazonian Clay” Eyeshadow Palette

Which pink shade tends to be the go-to for this year, though? The brighter, the better. So, if you’re currently okay with wearing any kind of pink makeup, consider going with a lighter shade this year.

Hello, Yellow Makeup Looks

Looking for a look that contends with the sun this summer? If you’re looking to be brighter and more exciting than the sun’s rays, consider rocking yellow makeup looks. There are many ways to wear it, but going with a single slash of yellow eyeliner or being bold with yellow eyeshadow that extends far beyond the lid is a knockout pick, using the Colourpop California Love” Eyeshadow Palette.

350
For example, Beyonce brought queen “bee” to life with her stunning yet classic yellow eyelid paired with deep black eyeliner. Rihanna opted for contrast, creating a yellow makeup look that combined rich yellow hues with a complementing green border.

Coral Red Makeup Looks That Wow

Red makeup, looks are year-round. It doesn’t matter whether you’re preparing for a fabulous date night with that special someone or just trying to make a statement in the office. If you have red lipstick, wear it and rock it, babe.

But if you’re looking to lighten things up a bit for summertime fun in the sun, consider going with coral red. Coral red makeup looks are all the rage for 2022. Use a matte coral red lipstick to rev up that classic matte makeup look, or cover your lids with a subtle coral red shade to create colorful eyeshadow looks that are daring yet perfectly suited for summer. You can never go wrong with this classic bold color.

Be a Gem with Embellished Face Gems

When it comes to colorful makeup looks, don’t think you’re destined to paint your face with whimsical colors like neon green, bright red, pink, or any other favorite shade. If you’re looking to create colorful makeup looks without the stress and hassle, why not use beautiful embellished face gems?

Embellished face gems can be placed anywhere, but they look extra sexy and striking around the eyes. You can keep it as low-key or glamorous as you’d like. The key here is to make a standout look that will “wow” at the upcoming pool party.

Colorful Triangle Cat-Eye

A regular cat-eye using black eyeliner? Yeah, sure, that’s a classic, and most women stan for it. But it’s really more of a deep, dark, and mysterious application that works well with the foggy nights of winter.

It’s time to give the cat-eye a summertime makeover. To do this, you will want to draw triangles on the outer corner of your eye (hello, Camila Cabello). You can use whatever color you want, which means you can make colorful makeup looks that really turn heads, especially if you use the Morphe “2 Always” Gel Liner.

Consider using complementing shades to create a style with plenty of pizazz. For example, creating purple makeup looks across the eyelid using a range of purple shades. Complement on the outside with triangles designed with deep plum, light green, or golden hue. Fabulous!

Green Machine

St. Patrick’s Day might be over, but the trendsetters said it was time to let green eyeshadow live beyond this fun holiday.

350
That’s right – you can now keep your green eyeshadow palette well into the summer months without going out of style. Drape your eyelids in a single hue of green and go over with some shine and sparkle pigmenting for a bedazzled look.

Don’t Blush About All That Blush

Wearing too much blush used to be a fashion faux pas, but not anymore. Don’t hesitate to be heavy-handed with your blush this year. You can really wear as much blush as your heart desires while still being on-trend and looking lush.

350
The best part is there are no rules with colors, either. Go daring with some rich red hues, or keep it subtle with peaches and light pinks. Throw some glitter on top to sparkle and shine at every beachside manor.

Not Lyin About Lined Lips

For some, an ultra-colorful makeup look can be overwhelming. If you want to dip your toes into the colorful makeup look world without going into the deep end, you can always opt for the final bright summer makeup trend: lined lips.

Lined lips are great because they not only make your natural lips appear fuller and more seductive, but they also have more color “pop.” This is especially true if you step out of the box and go for a quirky color such as orange, yellow, or purple.

350
With that in mind, you can stick to your regular lip liner – just use more of it. Or, you can try out something completely new. And yes, it’s a-okay to pair bright lip liner with a more subtle lipstick. Mixing and matching are all part of the fun when it comes to designing colorful makeup looks!

Final Words

This summer, it’s all about reaching for color. You can keep it on the quieter side with some pinks and reds, or you can go all-out with neon shades aligning your entire eyelid. Needless to say, you can let your personality and quirkiness shine through your looks while still being 100% “on point.”
