Beat the heat with these refreshingly cool makeup trends


There are myriad of makeup styles and plentiful ways to pull them off, but the best are the ones who take a generous cue from the current weather. Especially now when the spring is almost over, it is time to swap your routine makeup with more summer-friendly looks – be it about the right tropical makeup or the beloved sun-kissed look. Altogether, summer makeup is about coming forward and doing everything that you couldn’t do in those layers of moisturiser and snugly scarfs. Here are some of the irresistible looks that you wouldn’t double guess to try!

Can we hear some drumrolls? Here we go.

Bright Eye Shadows

Bright eyes or should we call it the rainbow eyes, this is one trend that every celeb, beauty enthusiast and stylist has graced at least once (or twice or thrice or ubiquitously!) this year. It topped the beauty charts this Spring and seems to have a foreseeable future in summer as well – whether it’s a romantic date, a birthday bash, a drive along the coastline or a Friday-yay – the stand out hues from striking pink to baby blues will keep you playful and dazzling throughout.

IFM recommends: M.A.C. Art Library palette

Graphic Eye Liners

To achieve an impactful yet easy-to-do look, nothing is off-limits; wear ecstatic colours for the fearlessly graphic eyes or keep it classic with the black bold-structured strokes on your lash lines, either way, it’s powerful and super-trendy – just drag the wand and don’t be afraid to fill-in the eyelids! You can also compliment your graphic eyes with a flawless glass skin makeup for an unparalleled look.

IFM recommends: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blackout (for Smokey effect) or Bobbi Brown Kit Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner  (for precise lines)

Bronzed Face

Step aside contour, the bronzer is making a spectacular comeback this season but instead of brushing the powder underneath, do a generous swipe along the cheekbones for an instant chiselled look. With bronzer palettes getting more versatile, you don’t have to pack an extra stack of blush and highlighter while travelling, just a bathe in bronzer will give you the much-adored sun-kissed look. For some handy tips, you could jot down your notes from the bronze queen Rihanna.

IFM recommends: Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer (also available at Sephora stores)

Minimal Makeup

Despite the ‘no makeup look is a makeup look’ cliché, here we’re revealing the celeb-approved minimal makeup secret! For the minimal beauty look, the idea is to look effortlessly fresh-faced, this particular style has lately picked up in the name of the yoga skin, created by makeup artist Sarah Hill, which involves a glowing, healthy, hydrated, and natural looking skin as if you just finished practising yoga. The second favourite is the glass skin look, which is basically an application of bare minimum foundation as the base with a bountiful layer of highlighter to reflect a dewy glass-like skin. Choose either one to feel light, buoyant and super comfortable in your skin.

IFM recommends: Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum

Statement Lips

Bold lips are not meant for daytime, says who? Certainly not! This summer spruce up your look by adding a power colour to your lips, be it the day or night. Think hues like raspberry red, brick maroons, electric violet and downright brown. And if you’re a bright shade baby then nothing accompanies summer like corals – it’s the perfect shade that suits all complexions, team coral lips with a dust of shimmer on your eyelids, and your sweet-statement look is ready to flaunt!

IFM recommends: M.A.C Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain in No Interruptions (For the perfect brick red) or Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick in Comet Kiss (For the electric plum) or Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick in Rose Ribbon (For the perfect coral)
