This Summer's Biggest Makeup Trends Are Cooler Than the Air From Your A/C Unit

Kelsey Castañon

Old way of thinking: makeup in summer needs to be lighter, fresher, and more pared down. New way of thinking: unless things get unbearably sweltering or you can't stand up on the subway without leaving a puddle of sweat on the seat, now is the time to experiment with your makeup more.

Give us color! Sparkle! Drama! (Because Euphoria didn't start a beauty movement for nothing, are we right?) From watercolor eye makeup that pairs perfectly with your face mask to 90's inspired frosted lips and a gradient glitter cat eye, there's no shortage of inspiration that make it worth whipping out your cosmetics bag this season.

Don't worry: we're here to ensure getting the looks is easy. In the slides ahead, NYC-based makeup artist Anne Kohlhagen walks us through this summer's hottest makeup trends that you won't want to ice out.
