Summertime seems to invite color in with open arms, ushering in trends of bold lips and bright eyes. This year, we’re embracing cool blue hues to battle the stifling rays. From semi-permanent nail polish in bright blue shades to the fresh new fragrance by Tom Ford house in a bright aqua carafe, we’re enveloping ourselves in the shades of sea and sky. If a shocking shadow proves a bit out of your comfort zone, you can always approach the trend from a more subtle way with an eyeliner or colored mascara.
