5 Summer Beauty Looks That are All About Bold, In-Your-Face Glamour

It’s time to cast bare skin and ‘no makeup’ makeup aside. This season’s beauty looks are all about bold, in-your-face glamour.

In the pink

Pink has been an unwavering trend in recent seasons, but this year’s rose hues take a lighter, more whimsical approach with blurred pops of fuchsia in the corners of the eyes à la Prabal Gurung, and candy floss pouts at Giambattista Valli.


Filter eyes

From the dramatically feline to the downright extraterrestrial, eyeliner is set to give Instagram filters a run for their money this summer. Recreate a pared-down version of Versace’s layered fluorescent shades of greens and blues using one color to draw a neat, winged line.

Polished pouts

Luscious, expensive-looking, lacquered lips are the name of the game this season. Makeup maestro Peter Philips chose glossy, mirrored pouts in eye-catching shades of crimson for model mouths on the Fendi runway. Pat on a vitamin-enriched lip oil for shine with added skincare benefits.

Anna Sui

Blush rush

Whether sculpting cheekbones or adding a rosy flush, a heavy-handed application is this season’s technique. “Radiant pink and red undertones are massive,” says Mariam Khairallah, global senior artist at Mac Middle East. “Use a cream blush on cheeks, temples, and lips.”


Barely there brows

From nineties-inspired skinny brows to bleached-out and low-key arches, the barely-there brow is back. “Wet a brow soap with a setting spray and use a spoolie to brush your brows upwards,“ says pro makeup artist Aya Abdel Hamid.
