Summer is always the season to give those daring color choices a go, whether it's a fuchsia pink, fruity orange, or - as this season's hottest trend will have it - turquoise! This cool, tropical shade has hit the runway makeup palette by storm, showing us how to add a hint of the ocean into our daily lives, whether we are on vacation or staycation this summer.
So why not give it a go? Here are our top 5 turquoise tips for your beautiful blue moments over the coming months:
No. 1: Eyeshadow
There's no need to be afraid of bold colors when there are so many simple ways of subtly incorporating them into your look. Dust a small amount of this bright blue shade into the inner or outer corners of your eyes or brush a small amount onto the lid before adding a coat of mascara for a fresh daytime look: simple!
No. 2: Colorblocking
To get some of that 60s summer vibe, opt for a bold, cream eyeshadow or use a colored eyeliner in a turquoise shade to get a block color finish. Team with liquid eyeliner to add a summer twist to the traditional cat eye look.
No 3: Colored eyeliner
Colored eyeliner is an easy fix to any makeup boredom, and it just so happens to be so hot on both the runway and the red carpet right now! To follow the turquoise trend, go for either a cool matte shade or a shimmering darker blue for an evening look, and team with a pale nude lip.
No. 4: Turquoise underliner
Take your look one step further with the futuristic addition of a bright blue underliner and really make yourself the center of attention! Use the "tightlining" effect with a pencil liner to smooth the color inside the lashline for a neon finish, and leave your lashes mascara-free.
No. 5: Color clash
Finally, the summer season is all about leaving those makeup rules at home, so why not couple your turquoise with a pop lip shade for a daring color clash? Contrast your blue eye shade with a fruity red or a fuscia for the perfect hot color combo this season.
