Bronzer--> Okay, this a treacherous road to walk in the makeup world..... Bronzer can be AMAZING, but it can also make you like a homeless begger covered in orangey dirt... Bronzer should really only be dusted on the face WHERE THE SUN WOULD NATURALLY HIT YOU---> try dusting it over your forehead, nose, cheekbones, and a little on your chin... Also, bronzer can be matte finish or shimmery, if you put shimmery bronzer all over your face you end up looking shiny or greasy/like your face is a disco ball... Bronzer with a shimmer or a highlight should really only be applied to cheek area, matte bronzer can be applied anywhere on the face. Also remember to blend down the neck/jawline so you don't have a super tan face and a pale neck, this is not a cute look... :)
Blue and Green Liners and Shadows- One of my favorite summer looks in the world is putting a light blue or green pop on the lower and upper lids with fun colored liners. This is so easy and it looks so summery and effortless. I always think of like a blond beach goddess in a white flowy dress, tan skin, with this kind of eye makeup.... If you wanna kick it up a notch, take a strong gold highlight and layer it over the liner and apply into the inner corner of the eye. This will have you looking like a sexy summer beach bunny in no time. :)
Keep the lips light- Summer months are hot, so the last thing you want is dark red lipstick melting down your face. Its a good idea to keep lip color light and shimmery for summer months. Pink or nude shimmery gloss is always a fail-proof way to look sexy and fresh. I love e.l.f.'s "Flirt" they sell at Target stores, its the perfect summer gloss. Also remember to apply a lip product with sunscreen in it if your hitting the beach....
Peach Blush- I love more orangey/peach blush for the summer months. Now, I'm not talkin like HOT orange, I just mean blushes than have a more peach than pink undertone. Peach colored blushes also work very well in conjunction with bronzer. Start with your blush, then sweep a little bronzer over it, and end with a light gold shimmer for a highlight on the cheekbone.
