Scroll down for the 6 best summer 2020 eye makeup trends you’re going to want to start trying at home like, now.

METALLIC EYES

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND: Create a sultry eye look with shimmery metallic shades—smokey eye or apply a single shadow. Your call! Take on the trend by applying one of the Bollyglow’s Shadow Liner or the glitter shades from the 9 Shade Eyeshadow Palettes all over your lid.

EYE EMBELLISHMENTS

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND: Well, we really hope you have a sticker or two to try this. This is simple and perfect when you don’t want to put on too much makeup. Try a variety of designs & don’t forget to send us a picture!

SHIMMER SMOKEY EYE

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND: First, make sure to use a primer (it’ll make sure your shadow doesn’t slide all over your lids) and then tap a shimmery eyeshadow on top. Create this look with Bollyglow’s Haute Chocolate Shadow Liner to make your eyes really pop.

POPS OF BLUE

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND:  Fill in your lids with a blue eyeshadow first, then use an eyeshadow brush to blend and smudge it well. Create dimensions and add more colour for your eyes to stand out. Instead of using any usual eyeshadow palette, we suggest you reach for Bollyglow’s Monday Blues Shadow Liner; it can be used as a liner and smudge for an eyeshadow effect.

PURPLE UNDERLINER

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND: Use your fingers or Bollyglow’s round 3-in-1 makeup brush to gently run a purple eyeshadow under your lower lashes. If not an eyeshadow, try a pencil liner! To get the look all you need is a  purple shade eyeshadow like in Bollyglow’s On Set 9 Shade eyeshadow palette or Idoleyez Purple Rain + Midnight Moon Pencil Eyeliner to whip your eyebrows in shape.

CONTRASTING COLOUR COMBOS

TRY THE SUMMER EYE MAKEUP TREND: Copy this beauty’s look by combining sapphire blue and golden eyeshadows. Use Bollyglow’s Award Night 9 Shade Eyeshadow Palette that has a metallic royal blue (showdown) and gold shimmer (Golden Hour) shades in it.

Simple Makeup Look For The Aquarius Girl

Aquarius season is still on and we couldn’t help but curate a special makeup look for all you Aquarius #BGstars. Before we get straight to the routine, know yourself better. Gem of a person & friend you are Aquarius; someone who believes having good friends and simply spreading love can change the world. The sign of the water bearer, the Aquarius beauty is known to possess free-flowing confidence in sharing her opinions & visions. And this is clearly seen in her bold beauty routine.

Whatever the occasion-work, date night or hang out with friends, our Aquarius girl feels her best when she’s all dolled up— which is why we’ve recommended these smudgy hues of aqua blue liner paired with radiant skin and a neutral, yet luscious lip for her zodiac beauty look!

Makeup Look For Every Aquarius To Try – Aqua Blue Eyeliner + Glossy Lips

Prep Up: It’s all about the base and you know it. Apply your base makeup with your go-to flawless face routine. For your base you want to opt for something nourishing and long-lasting like Bollglow’s Bolly Prime Time CC Primer; apply a small amount on the entire face in upward and outward direction for a natural & luminous complexion.

Step 1: After moisturising your face, correct any kind of blemish, dark circles, under-eye bags and then conceal it with our favorite Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready Conceal & Correct Duo that’s packed with Vitalux vitamins for instant skin rejuvenation. After this is done, complete your skin routine with something smooth, weightless & hydrating, we’re talking about Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundation! Dispense a pearl sized amount from the pump and apply product starting at the center of the face and blend out with fingertips to stay flawless #AllDayEveryDay—just how you like it.

Step 2: Face prepped up, now begin the actual work ladies. Did we mention blue is your lucky colour! Work towards getting the blue in your eyes right, start by using Bollyglow’s Duo Eyepencil Eyeliner Aquawoman + Midnight Moon for the eyes that gives you the best of two colours. Add the blue & black on the lower or upper lash line (as you wish!). You sometimes like to keep it smoky (smokin’ hot), then simply blend the colour to the center of your eyelids for a brushed out effect.

Step 3: Use an angled tip brow pencil like Bollyglow’s Bollybrow Shape & Set Brow Pencil. Create natural, hair-like strokes and the spoolie with clear gel to groom brows to perfection.

Step 4: Keep your lips simple yet brilliant, a little shine & tinted coverage is perfect to really allow your eyes & lips to draw the well-deserved attention! It’ll become your favorite if you can get your hands on Bollyglow’s Mini Lip Kit Romantic Comedy— a trio (matte, cream & gloss) that is hotter and sexier than the three Khan’s of Bollywood. Literally!

Where can you rock this look?

Not loud, carry off this look at work or even your next big date. If you wish, skip the black liner and apply the blue only for a milder, sassy version.

Not from the Aquarius family, that’s fine. You can still experiment and have a little fun with shades of blue. Do take a look at Bollyglow’s blue range and makeup. Follow us on Instagram @bollyglow for anything & everything #BollyBeauty & more.

Can You Use More Than One Foundation?

Hey #BGStars, did you know? We recently launched our latest #FilmiFoundations. Find your perfect match and get flawless, radiant-looking skin all day, everyday with the best base in town—our smooth, weightless & hydrating foundation that come in seven shades to match your skin tone. Take a look and in case you don’t find your match, you can mix and match two shades. You read that right, it’s absolutely fine to have & use more than one foundation. It’s beneficial! Care to know why? Read on….

1. Skin Colour Can Change With The Seasons
At first finding the right shade may or may not be the easiest for everyone. Agreed? Secondly, during the summer the skin tends to get a little darker and no matter what, you can’t escape it. Hence, it makes complete sense to have two shades which you can mix and match; this will let you have a shade when you’re at your palest and most tan. How convenient! Nonetheless, the two shades will get you through every season looking picture perfect. Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundations are enriched with Vita Rose, an ingredient from rose stem cell to promote firmer, more elastic and revived skin. Switching up your foundation in the summer and winter is the way to go!

2. You can contour and sculpt
For all the contour aficionados in the house, having two foundations is a must–a light and dark shade. Use the lighter shade on the center of your face and one shade darker to enhance bone structure in a not-so-prominent way, but give a natural finish. A good blend of two foundations can give you the shape and dimension you’ve always wanted to achieve. Try it to believe it!

3. A customized formulation for your skin type
We all have a different skin type-dry, oily, combination and this varies over time. For the drier areas of your skin, you may want to have a foundation that is matte and for the dry areas, especially your cheeks, a moisturising and hydrating foundation is required. Having two kinds of foundations lets you customize a base depending on how your skin feels on that particular day. Pretty cool huh? If this is too much of a hassle for you, then simply opt for a foundation that has a powder-matte finish and is hydrating as well. Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundation has all these properties. Let’s not forget the fabulous coverage it offers that you can forgo the concealing step if you wish.

Having more than one foundation in your makeup kit clearly has a lot of benefits. So if you haven’t got yours already, go shopping for your second favourite base in town. Don’t stress, we have got you covered. Check out our seven foundation shades—Wheat, Oat, Cinnamom, Chai, Cappuccino, Butter, Biscuit online at www.bollyglow.com. How many foundations do you own?
