The Most Flattering Summer Makeup Trend For All Skin Tones

Bright colors and floral patterns are hitting the summertime pavement hard, and it's not surprising that there's bold pink lips and brilliantly hued eyeliners to accompany these fresh and funky looks.

But with corals and purples all in bloom, it can be easy to forgo simple glamour with our makeup. So, which colors should we actually be applying to our radiating faces?

Earth tones.

Yes, that means variations of browns that range from cocoa to golden-tans for our eyes, lips and faces. Not only do earthy hues flatter ANY complexion, but if you look hard enough, there's bound to be a neutral eyeshadow palette or nude lip gloss hiding somewhere in your beauty collection.

So, to convince you that a neutral look is the way to go, here are some prime examples of how you can make browns work for your face this season.
