This unbearable heat calls for a cooling drink on a breezy beach. There is something about the vibrant, contrasting colours of cocktails (or mocktails, if you're not a drinker) that cools the temperature instantly. Why not borrow the colour concept of the concoctions and put it on your face for a look befitting a sizzling summer? After all, you can't get too intoxicated by putting on make-up.
Nothing says sexy like red cocktails such as Cosmopolitans and Bloody Martinis. Red cocktails represent passion, fun and excitement. Use this inspiration on your lips - think bright cherry red. Go for something shiny and glossy - cocktails are liquid, so matte isn't exactly the right way to convey the concept.
Fun-coloured cocktails such as Blue Lagoons or Midori Sours are great inspiration for tropical-coloured eyeshadows. For summer, the eyes should be as colourful as possible. Cobalt blue, acid green, or bright orange are a lot of fun to wear this season. Blue eyeshadows go well with an orange-red lip colour, while green eyeshadows are best complemented with pure red lips. They always say put intense colour on just one area of the face, but this summer that tip might have to fold for now. Go vibrant. Go crazy with colour.
