Nothing complements a boho-beachy vibe quite like a sun-kissed glow. Opt for a finely milled, matte bronzer to ensure a natural-looking finish, then complete your look with a swipe of nude gloss, volumizing mascara, and, of course, tousled waves.

A wine-stained lip seems only appropriate for a vineyard, so pick a comfortable, long-wear formula in a deep berry hue. Keep the rest of the look dewy, and style your hair in a tousled braid.

A fancy, formal affair calls for a feline flick. To complement a dramatic cat eye, opt for a fresh-faced complexion and finish with an alluring mauve lip. A sleek, voluminous top knot keeps things sophisticated while also putting the spotlight on your statement eyes.

In keeping with the earthy theme of rustic farm festivities, swirl on a delicate pink blush to impart a natural flush to cheeks, smudge a soft brown pencil around the eyes and swipe on a tinted lip balm. A textured half-up, half-down hairstyle completes the elegant, yet effortless, look.

There’s an undeniable charm about a backyard gathering. Channel that sweet energy with a playful pop of color for your pout—we especially love a vibrant tangerine shade for summer. Add a hint of sparkle to your eyes by applying a brightening eye pencil to the waterline, and for a chic finishing touch, rock a bouncy blowout.
