With every changing season makeup mavericks work harder to achieve that patent ‘look’ the whole world ends up following. As cliché as floral motifs in spring sound, summer features its very own go-to look: shaggy, unkempt beach waves atop a perfectly chiselled, sun-kissed lit-from-within face. However, this year the fashion brave put on a fierce face, quite literally with blush bombs, metallic-rimmed lids and luxe liners as deep and dark as a cosmic blackhole. Here are three of the most iconic looks you can easily recreate – with herbal makeup products. Scroll lower to explore the easy-to-duplicate, step-by-step guides on—you guessed right—all-green, good-for-your-skin makeup plucked fresh from the bounties of Mother Nature!

Perfect for a night out around town with the gals, this easy to pull off detailed smoky yet smudged look screams ‘I’m up for booze’. Start by perfecting your skin with a generous doze of luminous, slightly tinted oil-free moisturizer such as Faces Ultime Pro Peaches N Tinted Moisturizer for that eternal glow. Now for the fun part – dramatically popping peepers. Apply Lotus Make-Up Hypnotica Pearl Shine Long Lasting Eye Liner. The tapering-tipped brush glides on like a breeze, depositing the soft and creamy kajal on the waterline. Now dip a Q-tip in micellar water to wipe away the product lining the inner and outer corners of the eye to make way for striking negative space. To finish swipe two coats of mascara and you’re good to walk out the door.

Carolina Herrera upped the ante this year sending models down the runway with an intense bold lip accompanied by an equally potent sooty lid. Ride into the wild unleashing your sexy side as you woo your lover with not one, but two lucky strikes. To don this ultra-confident ‘Devil wears Prada’ look simply pair a perfect scarlet pout with dare-to-go-dark eyes. Start by lining your lips with a deeper shade of red than the lipstick for a full mouth, then in short strokes apply the infamous crimson. We love Iba Halal’s Care PureLips Moisturizing Lipstick - A60 Cherry Red for its lush, creamy finish. As for the eyes, we prefer to go with a warm brown smoky effect that goes well with the Indian complexion. Maybelline New York City Mini Palette Eye shadow

‘Pink adds a fresh take to a bare face’. Think of the term pretty-in-pink as the new neutral. Whether you choose to use it as blush, a lip tone, as highlighter or even as eye colur, it’s the glue that binds the whole look together as seen on FENTY x PUMA by Rihanna. You’d never OD on candy floss hues. Combine the tint with our recent obsession with Stranger Things and you have yourself thrown back into the groovy 80’s. Leave subtlety out the door for this one we’d say! First work with the raw, fresh face we all seem to love and adore these days. Next with a multi-purpose cream color sweep the tinge across the cheek bones, up towards the eyes, all over the eyelids too for that distinct draping effect. We’ll let you in on a secret – dip a blush brush in IsaDora’s Perfect Blush to combine the fallout with your favourite moisturizer. Sometimes a pale pink mix is all you need to fix any mood! We’d recommend bagging this stat as this Swedish cosmetic company boasts of a mineral line of makeup that is completely fragrance free, clinically tested and dermatologically recommended for sensitive skin!
