Summer Beauty Trends for the Office

Summer is officially upon us, and you’re ready to trade in that heavy face of winter for a more refreshed, sun-kissed, but still work-appropriate look. How should it be done? Here’s a few of our favorite runway trends from this season’s top designers.  There’s something for everyone, so choose accordingly.

Purple Eyeshadow {from the runway of Versace}
Try out some universally flattering shades for the office, like navy or eggplant.  A little pop of color will really enhance your eyes.

Rimmed Grey Eyeliner {from the runway of Sophie Theallet}
Temper your flair for dramatic, heavily rimmed raccoon eyes and choose a soft gray or brown over black for a fresh summer look.

Honey Hued Makeup {from the runway of Meadham Kirchhoff}
To add warmth to fair skin sans self-tanner, go for a creamy, honey-tone blush. Dab shimmering copper shadow on eyelids and rosy bronze gloss on lips for a total summery complexion.

Classic Black Liner {from the runway of Badgley Mischka}
Black liner over a bare eye is timeless. Thicken the line as you work your way toward the outer edge and finish with a mini tick. Keep remaining makeup minimal to ensure a clean, unfettered appearance.

Smokey Brown Eyeshadow {from the runway of Chanel}
Black smoky eyeshadow is likely too bold for the workplace. Choose an earthy brown instead for a winning look.

Bright Pink Lip Gloss {from the runway of Moschino Cheap & Chic}
A glossy pink lip is feminine and eye-catching and never too over-the-top for work.

Red Lipstick {from the runway of Jason Wu}
The classic color is completely workable, so long as you choose a tomato shade over a superdark Goth one and pair with neutral eyes and cheeks. Still shy about flaunting rouge lips at the office? Save them for the evening happy hour with coworkers.
