Summer makeup is often described as bright, colorful and even juicy, but spicy? That’s something we typically associate with fall, aka the season of all things pumpkin spice. Summer 2018 is changing things by bringing the spice earlier.
In May, Bite Beauty launched its Amuse Bouche Lipstick Spice Collection featuring toasty shades. Always on top of new trends, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty launched its Moroccan Spice range, which was influenced by the colors of Morocco and the Sahara. Both lines are strong enough that we don’t need a third option to make this a bona fide trend, but a few other brands have expanded their offerings to include spicy products.
In addition to inspiring spice market wanderlust and increasing our cravings for curry, cinnamon and hot pepper, spicy makeup wins because it’s flattering. Whether the shades are soft like nutmeg or fiery like cayenne, they all have a warm undertone that brings the right amount of heat to complexions for a flattering look. They’re colors that really do transcend seasons and look appropriate in the sun-soaked days of summer as much as they do during the brisk days of fall.
