Although rising temperatures may make us want to lighten up our beauty looks, summer is also the perfect time to experiment with bolder colours and looks on your lips and lids. This season, eyeshadow has become the absolute must-have of beauty products, with designers placing all of the focus onto the eyes with bold liners and shadow colours on the runway. Not a fan of shadow? Summer 2016 is the perfect time to put it to the test!

SUMMER 2016: 4 EYESHADOW SHADES TO TRY
Haven't had time to soak up the sun this summer? No problem! This season, you can warm up your complexion without the sun by coating your lids with a shade of golden-brown shadow that's perfect for any skin tone! For a show-stopping look, opt for shadows with a shimmery undertone, and feel free to go wild when it comes to application techniques. Our tip? Make sure to coat your entire upper lid area as well as your lower lash line for a shadow effect.
For the ultimate bronzed goddess look, pair your golden smoky eye with a soft pink or brown blush and a lipstick to match!
Whether it's turquoise, cobalt or pastel, blue has become a major colour must-have this season, popping up on runways at Diane von Furstenberg, Missoni, and Chanel. For a stand-out look, coat your upper and lower lash lines with a shimmery shade of blue shadow. If you're up for a more subtle look, opt for a blue liner, instead.
As for the rest of your face, give your skin a beautiful glow by applying a generous amount of liquid highlighter to the projecting parts of your face – high points of your cheekbones, bridge of nose, forehead, and chin. Finally, go for natural, nude lips to keep all of the attention on your eyes.
A timeless beauty essential, black can be worn across all seasons, whether the sun is shining or snow is falling. This season, opt for a bold cat eye or graphic black liner and shadow for the ultimate edgy look. Simply apply a dark grey or black shade of shadow to your upper and lower lash lines, extending the colour slightly outwards towards your temples. Trace this line using a black liquid or pencil eyeliner for a killer cat-eye!
For a sexy summer night out look, keep the rest of your complexion matte with a powder foundation or better yet, the baking technique.
This summer, bright shades of peach, pink and coral aren't confined solely to the lips. On the 2016 runways, designers experimented with the colour trend on eyelids, where models rocked everything from subtle pink shadows to bold glitter lids. Pair your warm colour lids with bare lashes and defined brows for a balanced look that isn't too over-the-top.
