Summer is here and that means it's time to get wild with your makeup. Here, some easy changes to start to upgrade your look for the season. Plus, see our list of the best makeup products to stay pretty year-round.

#1. Go Orange
Swap out your regular red lip color for a hot orange shade to instantly warm up your complexion.

#2. Be Peachy Keen
Peach is popping up all over the place this season. Try this shade on your cheeks and lips for a subtle glow.

#3. Pastels
If day-glo shades aren't for you, tone hues down with a pastel palette, like this cotton candy color.

#4. Green with Envy
If you're nervous a light green will make you stand out a little too much, opt for emerald shade instead.

#5. Singing the Blues
Light blue lids make brown eyes pop without going over-the-top with color.

#6. Purple Polish
Purple is the new pink for summer nails. Try a deep plum or shiny metallic mani for a look that works for both day and night.

#7. Cat Eye Liner
Get dramatic with your liner by extending up and past your lashline. Leave your lids bare for daytime wear or pair it with a smoky eye for a nighttime look.

#8. Bright Liner
Lift your lids with a bright liner in yellow, blue, or purple. Remember to keep the rest of your look simple with glossy lips and matte skin.

#9. Do the Dewy
Show off your healthy skin by giving your complexion a glisten with a light foundation and illuminizer on the apples of your cheeks.

#10. Shocking Stains
Bright, day-glo lips are all the rage this season. Try out a matte stain so that color stays put without being too harsh.
