Summer Cocktails Are the Season’s Unexpected Makeup Muse

Goodbye boring 'ol neutrals and hello every shade of the rainbow. Summer calls for eyeshadow looks as poppin' as the dranks you're sippin' on.

It’s the time of the year to retire that neutral eyeshadow palette you work to the bone 9 out of 12 months of the year. Summer brings along with it an inclination to let more colours into our lives. On the wardrobe end, technicoloured tie-dye is THE trend of the season and to accessorise, piling on beaded, rainbow-hued bracelets and necklaces is the way to go. This invitation of colour into the makeup department means retiring the nude and peachy tones (temporarily) for something a little more adventurous.

Whether you’re going all out with the shadow on your lid or sticking to a pop of colour in the inner corner of your eye or perhaps, lining your lid with a coloured eyeliner, summer is all about dipping your toes into the sunshine yellows, neon pinks and fire engine reds. Your go-to summer cocktail is essentially your makeup muse this season. Are you a Tequila Sunset, Sex in the Driveway or Pink Lady type of girl?

To help you along the way to create the selfie-worthy, poppin’ summer look, we’ve also scoured the ‘gram for inspo and a lineup of eyeshadow palettes that’ll help you achieve them. A gallery of inspiration on one hand and the tools you’d need on the other, you’re good to go! Summer is well underway.
