With summer and sunshine on your mind, you've probably already done yourself a favor and pushed your winter clothes to the back of your closet. But have you done the same with your makeup? As an avid beauty lover myself, I'm always eager for summer, because it means that the glowy makeup looks I love to wear year-round are finally back in style. If you're just like me and are totally ready to show off your poppin' highlighter, you'll need some captions for summer makeup selfies (because you already know you're going to take a ton of pics).
In my opinion, summer makeup is way underrated. Some makeup enthusiasts might give fall and winter makeup a ton of credit, because it's the time when people really play with dramatic looks, as opposed to the more dewy looks of summer. But that's actually what I love about summer makeup. You can just wear tinted moisturizer and mascara and that's totally cool, or you can opt for a beautiful bronze contour.
I love how versatile makeup is in the summer, and I know I'm going to rock my favorite dewy looks long after my tan fades. Here are some captions I'll definitely be using for my summer makeup selfies, and if you're planning on rocking some awesome looks, you should use them, too.
