7 Summer Makeup Looks to Try With Colored Eyeliner

Summer is by far the best time to experiment with makeup because you have all the time in the world to perfect your look.

That said, why not try adding colored liner to your routine to change things up? Scroll through and find inspiration below:

1. Layered Rainbow Eye

If you're feeling extra adventurous, mix several different colored eyeliners to create a layered rainbow shade on your eyelid. We can almost guarantee no one else will be rocking the exact same look.

2. Pretty in Pink

Anyone with lighter eyes will totally adore this look because the rosy hue has the perfect brightening effect. As soon as the light hits, you'll be shining bright like a diamond. Add some false lashes for extra drama.

3. Orange Creamsicle Eye

Nothing says summer like a popsicle-inspired shadow and liner. If you have darker eyes, shades of red, orange and yellow will really pop on your skin tone. Adding a gold shimmer on the lower lash line will also really up the wow factor on this creamy and colorful look.

4. Purple Smoky Eye

For a summer night out, turn to this bold purple smoky eye. Adding a violet liner on top of a smoldering dark shadow is both unique and makes any makeup completely next-level.

5. Ombré Eyeliner

Ombré liner is definitely a challenge, but if you can master the proper technique, you'll be able to create something super envy-inducing. It gives off major mermaid vibes and your whole squad will want you to teach them your ways.

6. Tiger Eye

The combination of red, orange, yellow and pink on the lid can only be described as a fierce tiger eye. Adding a magenta liner on the lower lash line will make the lush hues stand out even more.

7. Pink With a Pop of Gold

If a pop of glitter on the inner and outer corner of your lids doesn't scream summer, we don't know what will. Sunset eyes are definitely a look you should try at least once at your next BBQ or beach day. Yes, we wear makeup to the beach, sue us. ????????‍♀️
