Create a quick summer look with a pop of color

When summer weather sets in, it's time to rework your makeup colors and products. Sun-kissed shades of peach and bronze take a prominent role, but adding a vibrant color can really amp up a look. Since you'll probably be spending more time outdoors as well, it's a good idea to ditch the full coverage foundation in favor of a lightweight BB cream.
For this quick look, combine shades of orange, peach, bronze and gold with electric blue eye shadow. Fade-resistant brow gel is a must for humid days, and water-based jelly highlighter will keep you glowing without looking powdery. This tutorial also uses highlighting drops. When mixed into BB cream, they give the skin a healthy glow.
