Summer 2023 Makeup Trends

Summer is officially in full swing, and we can’t think of a better time to explore *all* the current makeup trends. This time of year, we swap powder and full-coverage products for dewier, light-weight formulas, and tried and true makeup looks for playful makeup trends, like bright lips and bold cheeks. Whether you're into a timeless, sun-kissed glow or craving a pop of vibrant color, there's an abundance of exciting options to explore this season.

Sun-Kissed Skin

You don’t have to sunbathe or commit to self-tanner to achieve a sun-kissed glow. At MAKE, we use Heat Stroke Dewy Gel Cheek Tint in shades Toasted, a warm light brown, and Baked, a deep chocolate brown, to achieve instantaneous vacation skin. Infused with skin enhancing pigments, nourishing emollients, and brown algae, Heat Stroke hydrates and plumps the skin while delivering buildable coverage and a dewy finish. Apply Heat Stroke in shades Toasted or Baked to cheeks and the bridge of your nose for natural-looking warmth. For an even bronzier effect, lightly dust the Skin Mimetic Microsuede Bronzer on forehead and cheekbones.

Pink Pout

There’s nothing quite like a bold lip to brighten your makeup look! With Barbie slated to premiere this month and hot pink dominating the 2022 and 2023 runways, embrace the trend with Cream Supreme High Impact Lipstick in shade Fluorescence, an electric pink.

Bold Lips & Cheeks

Turn heads with a fierce duo: flushed cheeks and a bold lip. This summer, we’re all about minimal complexions and vibrant pops of color and our Cream Supreme High Impact Lipstick and Heat Stroke Dewy Gel Cheek Tint make the perfect pairing. Whether you’re into fiery reds, bright oranges or electric pink, there’s a shade of Cream Supreme guaranteed to elevate your summer makeup arsenal. Pair your shade of choice with Heat Stroke in shades Inflamed or Swelter for your boldest look yet.

Modern ‘90s Makeup

The beauty of '90s grunge makeup lies in its simplicity and ease. Current interpretations of this iconic look merge nostalgia with contemporary sophistication, thanks to the availability of modern formulas. Explore the hallmarks of '90s grunge with lived-in liner, dark nudes, and soft-matter skin for a twist to your beauty routine that’s equal parts modern and nostalgic. For those seeking to channel '90s nostalgia, reach for bronzer to create a lightly sun-kissed complexion, smudged black eyeliner, multiple coats of mascara, and a brick-colored lip.

    Lazy Girl Makeup Routine

    ‘Lazy Girl Makeup’ isn’t reserved for the self identified lazy girls among us – it’s about working harder, not smarter to accentuate your natural features with high performing, multi-purpose formulas. It’s not a full face, nor is it the infamous ‘no makeup makeup,’ which is more about looking effortlessly undone than it is about a simplified routine anyway.
