The Best Makeup for Summer Vacation

Summer vacation is just around the corner and that means one thing: lots of time to relax and have fun! With so much free time, it's the perfect opportunity to experiment with new makeup looks.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.


Whether you're hitting the beach or lying by the pool, bronzed skin is always in style during summertime. A light dusting of bronzer applied along your cheekbones, nose, and chin will give you that sun-kissed glow. It's also a great item to help transition foundation that gets too pale as you tan. We love MAC Mineralized Skinfinish because the baked consistency gives a skin like effect.

Bright Shades of Mascara and Liner

If you want to keep your makeup simple but want a little pop of color, skip shadow and experiment with colored liners and mascaras. Blue or purple mascaras complement hazel and brown eyes. The biggest trend right now is using an electric blue on your lower lashline. We love Urban Decay's 24/7 Eye Pencils because they go on super creamy and dry waterproof.

Tinted Lips

Keep your lips hydrated with just the right amount of color. Fun tones like corals and hot pinks scream summer and go with almost any look. We love the Fenty Gloss Bomb in Heat. It's just the perfect amount of watermelon tint to the lips.

Body Shimmer

Show some skin this summer and compliment it with a shimmer oil. It looks particularly enticing on your shoulders, collar bones and the center of the legs. We love Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. It smells like coconuts and the subtle gold shimmer looks great on everyone.

These items in your makeup bag should have you ready for summer vacay in no time. Need some help getting your perfect makeup routine together? Our Makeup Instructors at Industry Makeup Academy are available for Personal Makeup Shopping Sessions and One on One Makeup lessons. Book online today!
