A game of colours and contrasts: The loveliest summer looks.

Particularly bright colours are in fashion right now, from tomato red to canary yellow through to loud lilac or luscious tropical green. These mix with powdery pastels such as lemon yellow, lavender or cherry blossom pink. The cheerfulness of the 80s, puffed sleeves and flounces, shiny, solid-coloured fabrics in opaque or transparent put everyone in a good mood. The make-up is based on the contrast between loud and soft, clear and clarified, and offers a varied alternation between courageous and smoky shades. Extremely dramatic eyeliner, emphasised eyes, a porcelain complexion and shiny red lips represent confidence and power. Hair is both sexy and cool, and is worn as beach waves or with gel products as a partial wet look with emphasised roots for a glamorously mystical style.

Rose red

As sweet and delicious as a summer sorbet is the combination of orange shades on cheeks and eyelids with rose red lips that look particularly full with seductive shine thanks to Sensual Lipstick in "Coral Red" and Cream Glossin fruity "Hibiscus". Thickening Cream gives hair volume and natural bounce. It gives loose hair a natural look, as if you'd just come from the hairdressers.

Deep Purple

Smoky violet eye make-up makes fashion colours such as pastel pink and beige look very exciting. The Magic Shadow eyeshadow duo "Orchid & Blackberry" is given the right expressiveness thanks to Perfect Volume Mascara in "Burgundy Plum", and it makes the eyes look bigger. Brilliant Nail polish in "Chocolate" gives the look an almost sinful touch. For defined curls with lots of bounce use Curl Defining Cream. The elegant hair takes a style departure from the sensuous make-up.

Color Party

With the smoky eye make-up in dark shades of violet, simply switch out the hairstyle and outfit to create an evening look. Instead of wild curls, elegant and luscious volume is now the name of the game. Treat damp hair with Volume Booster mousse, and blow-dry with a large ceramic round brush. Pair with a simple yet feminine outfit in royal blue and flashy earrings for that glamour factor. Extra tip: For even more expressiveness, carefully brush the eyebrows, and fill in with Automatic Pencil for Brows.


Whether a wet look at the beach bar and subtly emphasised eyes and lips, or perfectly bunched curls and intense Smoky Eyes for that hot date: Texturizer gives hair movement, texture and body. Feminine Smoky Eyes in shades of violet look best in contrast with an outfit in an intense shade, such as the bright green outfit here. Alternatively, you can opt for a cooler version with Eyeshadow Pen in "Icy Blue", with a soft and creamy texture that makes it very easy to apply to your lids.


For incredibly sleek and silky, shiny hair, even at tropical temperatures, choose the heat-active straightening fluid Therm-O-Flat. Graphic accents work well with the reduced hairstyle: Eyes are emphasised with pitch blackPencil for Eyes in "Khol Silk". Bright nail colours include "Summer Pink" or "Chocolate". Brilliant Nail polish with high colour intensity is combined with Brilliant Nail Top Coat for a particularly long-lasting look.

These are the make-up and styling favourites for contrasting summer looks:
