How To Recreate Summer's Hottest Eye Trend | Clozette

Mattes are great for your base makeup when it comes to summer, but with the sun in its full effect this season, we say change things up a bit.

Balance your mattes with some sparkle and glow for a healthier and more natural look.  If you're afraid to pack on some glow and use glittery bronzers that might make you look oily than healthy, we've got the perfect look to try: shimmer on your lids. 

Adding some sparkle to your peepers gives an extra pop to your summer look when the sunlight hits your face, without looking too over-the-top — as long as you do it right. So if you want to learn how to ace this trend without looking tacky, keep on reading as we share some of our favourite ways on how to wear sparkly eyeshadow for the summer. 

Romantic pinks

Smoking out your typical nude summer colours like browns and soft oranges frames your eyes nicely. But if you want a hint of boldness to your overall look, mix in the beautiful pink and peach shades of the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Palette in Spice on the center of your lids and inner corners for a more romantic and feminine vibe. 

Sunset vibes

Look no further for inspiration than beautiful dusk colours for your eye makeup. This vibrant look created using the Laneige Ideal Shadow Quad in No. 8 All Shook Up gives all the summer vibes with its combination of all glitter shadows in beautiful shades of coral, orange, gold, and taupe, that can either be worn alone or all together for the perfect bright and sunny summer eye look.

Summer is filled with festivals and parties. And if you're one social butterfly who aims to get a winning streak at standing out in all of them, this look's for you. Go all out with the shimmer by mixing in the bronze, oranges and emerald greens from the Maybelline Graffiti Nudes palette on your lids and crease, and top it off with a smooth wing for the perfect party-stunner look.

Regular day ahead, but still want to give your peepers the glam treatment? We recommend the Kate Tokyo Dark Metallic Glamour Eyes palette for the combo of matte and soft shimmery nude shadows that's great for a subtle but still eye-catching (pun intended) overall look.

Mornings offer new beginnings. They also set the tone for the rest of the day. Considering how jam-packed our lives have become, however, mornings can sometimes get a bit too busy and frazzling for our liking. When we have a mile-long to-do list to finish, mental and body fatigue can start the moment we wake up.

With a few easy and simple calming rituals though, you’re sure to get a great jumpstart to your day. Try these before you sleep and upon waking up.

Log off

When our smartphones offer us a variety of ways to spend time — from discovering things to connecting with people — it can be hard to put down our favourite handheld devices. To say that it is a necessity, however, is an understatement.

  In order to start your day right, you need to free your mind from all the clutter. So put your phone on airplane mode before you sleep for uninterrupted sleep. Keep it on this mode for 30 minutes in the morning and let yourself momentarily forget about the outside noise.

Feel good and look good

Did you know that a recent study has proven that having a beauty routine actually helps with your mental health? Despite the many stressors in our hectic lifestyles — from pollution to toxic relationships to demanding jobs — feeling and looking radiant should be a priority. So, go ahead and indulge yourself.

Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8™ range

A routine using products with ingredients that were harvested from nature is a gentle but powerful way of radiating your inner shine. The Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8™ range — which includes the Dual Phase Emulsion, Moisture Creme, Overnight Creme, Overnight Detox Concentrate and the new Radiant Eye Jelly — have a one-of-a-kind pomegranate blend with eight powerful ingredients to invigorate the skin and eliminate dullness, dryness and fatigue.

Aside from letting our inner glow show, clarity is something that we all aspire to have, not only in our minds but also on our skin.

The Estée Lauder Nutritious Micro-Algae range features the Pore Minimizing Hydra Lotion, Pore Purifying Cleansing Jelly, Pore Purifying Cleansing Bar, and the Pore Minimizing Shake Tonic. Packed with chlorella and spirulina, these products are great for cleansing and detoxifying the skin. They also contain laminaria saccharina, an algae extract that helps keep oil at bay and minimises the appearance of pores.

Say hello to mornings in front of the mirror noting your nourished, energised, refined, and radiant complexion.

Make time for meditation

Meditation comes in different forms. Whether you find solace in chanting ‘om’ or writing a daily agenda, do it. Just clear your mind and relax. Read a book and escape for a bit. Waking up slightly earlier to devote a portion of the morning to yourself can actually make you feel more energised and positive.

Mind matters

Let’s be honest: sometimes, scrolling through your social media feed can be a mood-buster – especially when you see something that can negatively affect your emotions. Forget about scrolling through your social media feed the moment you wake up. Read up on some positive quotes, or read a book about motivation to help you ease your way into the day. Set a healthy outlook before you battle out the stressors of the day.

Wonder Water

You’ve already heard about drinking eight glasses of water a day, but did you know the benefits of drinking water right after waking up? H2O is an essential nutrient that your body needs to stay healthy and perky. It activates the digestive system and promotes regularity, kick-starts your body system internally by flushing out toxins, and it can keep help control calories.

Among the many positive things H2O does is that it helps energise your muscle cells so you become more energetic and alert. Water helps balance our mood (and skin!); so get chugging as soon as you rise.
