Memorial Day weekend may mark the unofficial kickoff to summer, but the season officially starts June 21. This is the ideal time of year for long family vacations, half-day Fridays at the office and, of course, fresh new makeup and hair looks to heighten your warm-weather glow.
Trying out a new eyeshadow or bronzer can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be when there are celebrities we can always count on to show us exactly how it’s done. For example, check out Kim Kardashian’s dreamy blue eyeshadow and high ponytail, and Kristin Cavallari’s sun-kissed complexion and beachy waves. These are two totally different looks that are equally amazing for summertime.
Read on for nine sizzling celebrity makeup and hairstyles to try this summer, plus all the best tips and products to copy these looks.

To get Shahidi’s pink eyeshadow, try softly sweeping a mix of powders, such as Fling, DollFace, and Rose Gold from Huda Beauty’s Rose Gold Remastered Eyeshadow Palette.

Kardashian may played a huge part in why blue eyeshadow is such a hit for spring and, without a doubt, the timeless trend will transcend perfectly into summer. Your best bet for getting the look will be to swatch the vibrant hard-to-miss blue shade from KKW x Mario 10 Pan Eyeshadow Palette. To mimic her sky-high ponytail, add Kristen Ess Style Defining Shine Pomade to your hairline to avoid flyaways.
I do kind of feel like I won the birthstone lottery by getting diamond (thank you April)! As my birthday month comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on why these one-of-a-kind gemstones are so special to me. A few weeks ago, I posted about how my life choices to this point have woven the most exquisite path leading me to who I am in this very moment. I've always loved diamonds (who doesn’t?) and the journey of how they were created and how they are a symbol to celebrate all of life’s most important moments. My parents gave me this ring years ago for my birthday and every time I look down at it I’m reminded of how beautiful life is and how something so precious and authentic can symbolize my life’s journey up to this moment. This is #MyDiamondMoment. @RealisaDiamond #RealisRare #sponsored

Keep things simple and chic like Mitchell by wearing soft, muted tones all over. Apply the shade of Mented Cosmetics‘ nude lipstick that’s most flattering on your skin tone.

Zendaya may have just missed the mark to be a part of Generation Z, but she wears this Gen Z yellow like a total cool kid. Try Make Up For Ever Artist Color Eye Shadow in Mimosa to smize like she does.

Cavallari has the right idea when it comes to bronzed skin and beachy, tousled waves. Chisel your face with Charlotte Tilbury’s Ibiza Beach Stick to glow the way she does.

Pucker up with Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit in Say No More to get an electrifying lip look.
Rowland has the right idea in wearing a spicy red lip for summer. To get this look, layer a red lipstick like Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso with a glossy topping such as NARS lip gloss in Eternal Red for a winning match that speaks volumes.
A post shared by Olivia Culpo (@oliviaculpo) on Apr 19, 2018 at 5:46pm PDT
Pull your hair back and leave out a few face-framing wavy strands, as Culpo elegantly does here. Pair the ‘do with a bubblegum pink lipstick such as Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Pout.

Take a cue from Anderson and add a peek of purple to your eyelids — everyone will stare your way this summer. Try Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Psychedelic Sister.
