Lemonade Inspired Summer Date Night Looks

Lemonade Inspired Summer Date Night Looks

Beyonce's now iconic yellow Gucci dress in "Hold Up" has made yellow a street style HIT this summer. And while hopefully your bae isn't inspiring you to commit random acts of vandalism, you can be inspired by this warming shade of yellow for your summer date night looks. From pale pastel to warm rich shade of the same, yellow can be a universal color. Stay tuned for some sizzling summer name night looks inspired by Beyonce!

The Casual Look

Dress: Mango // Earrings: Lauren Ralph Lauren // Purse: Gabriella Rocha // Sandals: Calypso St. Barth

For a flirty casual look, start with this breezy off the shoulder look from Mango and add in some festival flats like these from Calypso St. Barth. Keep the look simple with Ralph Lauren gold hoops and a brown leather crossbody from Gabriella Rocha.

Dress: Lavish Alice // Earrings: Jules Smith // Purse: H&M // Heels: Rivers Island

For the dressy look, we going to follow the same principles but upgrade it a bit more. Go for a more fitted dress like this one by Lavish Alice with interesting details and trade in statement sandals for a statement open toe heel like this one from River Island. Keep the accessories simple but polished. Try a drop earring like these by Jules Smith and a simple tassel clutch from H&M.

The Face

L to R, T to B: Face Palette: Becca x Jaclyn Hill, Foundation: Hourglass, Contour Palette: Tarte, Setting Spray: Loreal, Primer: NYX, Lipstick: Colourpop, Mascara: Maybelline, Gel Liner: Maybelline

The purpose of this look is to create a face that is natural and glowing and won't melt right off! That starts a with a good primer. I suggest NYX's Angel Veil primer. It gives a soft, airbrushed finish which kept my makeup on throughout the Beyonce concert. Once that's primed apply a matte foundation. The Hourglass liquid to powder foundation is the GOAT for this! On to the eyes. A gel liner will give you great hold for a warm day or night and this Maybelline one is inexpensive. The brush makes for a mean cat eye. Add some mascara for a natural look. On the lips, swipe on a neutral color matte color like Stingraye from Colourpop. Make sure to contour, highlight, and add blush (try the new Tarte and Becca palettes for this!). Otherwise, matte foundations can leave you very one dimensional. Lastly, set with a setting spray. This one from Loreal is readily available at the drugstore and lasts all night.

Are you feeling yellow for the summer? What are you wearing on your next hot date?
