Summer is all about fun. In makeup, that translates to vivid and vibrant colours, as well as a sunkissed glow. Here are just a few of the many makeup collections beauty brands have launched this season for you to ace your summer look. We’re definitely learning a thing or two about the ideal summer shimmer!
The healthy, sunkissed look is central to the brand’s Cruise 2019 collection. Look all ready and excited for the summer with the makeup products from this collection.
The base makeup focuses more on luminosity rather than on shading. You can achieve that by using the Duo Bronze et Lumière which will give you a warm glow for a lightly structured face. Define your eyes using the cream shades in the Les 4 Ombres in 707 Lumières Naturelles palette and line them with the Stylo Ombre et Contour. Brighten up your eye makeup with the Ombre Première Gloss.
To complete your whole look, apply either the rosy beige or dusty pink lip shade that will leave a dewy luster! Slightly muted but still fun nail polish shades are also available for you to be all ready for the summer.
Available at ION Orchard, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, VivoCity and Raffles City from 30 May 2019.
Rihanna herself mentioned that she wanted to go all-in with vivid colours this season, the juicier the better. This explains why the juicy, playful colours in Fenty Beauty’s latest collection scream nothing but summer!
Creamy, smooth and lightweight, the Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick comes in vibrant shades that anyone, including you, can pull off. Here’s a tip: prep your lips with the brand’s latest Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm and Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick for extra kissable lips.
Get in on the soft neon trend with the Vivid Liquid Eyeliner Trios which come in three different combinations — Baeside, Baecae and Baewatch. Wear these in a single shade or mix and match and create your own colour combinations.
Play around with the eyeliners and contrast the colours with your lips for an exciting makeup look!
Available online and at Sephora stores from 10 May 2019.

It’s understandable if you’re not exactly a fan of crazy, bold makeup looks. You can still look ready for the summer with clear, glowy skin. For the majority of us who aren’t blessed with that however, makeup will do its magic and give you that much-coveted clear, glowy complexion.
The creamy Accomplice Concealer & Touch-up Stick promises to provide full-coverage, blending naturally into your skin for an au naturel look. It’s also formulated with snow mushroom for hydrated-looking skin so you don’t experience creases or caking when using the product.
To set your makeup, use the Accomplice Instant Blurring Powder with Brush which will give your skin a nice, warm glow. You can also use this product throughout the day to touch-up and reduce shine without looking cakey, especially since we need to keep our makeup pristine in the sweltering heat.
Now available online and available at Sephora stores from 9 May 2019.
The brand’s best-selling lipstick shade — matte OR570 or also nicknamed ‘Bloody Orange’, is inspired by the orange warmth of sun rays. This time, shu uemura has created a full makeup collection based off this shade.
