Summer Eye Makeup Ideas

Aren’t you bored of applying the same old black liner along the same curve as you have been doing since the past millenia or so? I know I am! What better time to go bolder and more colourful than summer and what better place to start than those gorgeous eyes? Here are some fun eye makeup ideas that will definitely funk up your summer style.

Purple and black
Let your peepers do the talking with a striking combination of purple and black. Luscious shades of violet suit all eye colours, blend it with black for a seductive smokey eye style. After sweeping on some purple eye shadow, outline your lower lid with a black eye pencil and extend it to create a wing on the outer corner. Make a wing on the upper lid as well to create a double wing with a small space between the two.  Use white eye shadow around the inner corners of the eye as well as under the brow to highlight these areas.

Outer Edge Wing Flicks
Add some drama to your usual make up routine with these attention grabbing outer edge flicks. Extend the flick of your outer corner over the crease of your eye, it should look like a triangular shape. First, use a pencil liner and then go over it with a liquid liner for precision. Use an angular eyeliner brush to make it easier.

Neon Blue Cat Eyes
Summer is the perfect season for a bright colour palette like electric blue which looks great on most skin tones. Create your line as close to your lashes as you can, you can choose to do the wing straight and pointy or curve it upwards for a reto-esque style. Colour in your eye with generous amounts of bright blue till the crease and take a look at it from every angle to make sure it looks perfect, keep ear buds dipped in eye makeup remover at hand to fix any mistakes. Keep your lips and cheeks natural to allow your bold eyes to stand out best.

Coloured Under Eye Wings
A stunning way to add a colourful twist to the usual winged eye liner is with bright colours. Give your eye some pop by using coloured eye liner on your lower lids, flick it at the end and connect it to the top line. Shades like red, turquoise blue, pink and purple would work best for a dazzling summer style.
