It's Summer! Time To Buy Some New Makeup

Blame it on the Memorial Day sales. Or maybe blame it on the abrubt change in seasons. Alternatively, you could blame it on the alcohol! (Up to you, reader's choice.) But any which way you slice it, Team ITG is shopping—almost irresponsibly so. A new weather forecast calls for new things, right? Right. So we went ahead and picked a few and asked makeup artist Shayna Gold to "swatch" them on Shaanti Chaitram—in this case, swatching means committing to the full look, outfit and all. It's online shopping, but with a little more personality. Crack open a cold one and start scrolling.


Maryam Nassir Zadeh For MAKE Palette


Baby blue, peachy pink, burnt terracotta... Maryam Nassir Zadeh's bespoke palette in collaboration with MAKE is a testament to shades you didn't know you needed. Half eyeshadows, half lip pigment (though you'd be forgiven for swapping them if you're so inclined), it all comes packaged in a handy paper booklet. Very design objet, very MNZ. On Shaanti, Shayna applied a finger-wash of Brick across the lid for dimension, blended Fire onto her cheekbones for a sunned look, and added Tangerine in the center of her lips (smudging outwards) for an easy tint. No brushes needed.

Nars Poison Rose Lip Powder Palette


Nars is the master of designer makeup collaborations. The Christopher Kane Silent Nude Blush? Iconic. The Steven Klein Christmas packaging? The stuff collectors' dreams are made of. The most recent Erdem sync up is certainly on that level—but if you're going to pick up one thing to bring home, make it the Lip Powder Palette. The Lip Priming Balm is a lovely English rose shade that goes on tacky but blends out to create a smooth and moisturized canvas. Then the world is your highly pigmented, powder oyster. Blend and contour away, or stick with one. On Shaanti, Shayna opted for Damask, a rich fuchsia. There's also a blood red, a mauve-y brown, and a shimmery rose gold. Those last two would look mighty fine together, too. (Worn here with the very opaque Dior Pump 'n' Volume in #840.)

Dior On Stage Liner


Can't go wrong with a new launch by Dior. Seriously, never. As such, everyone is losing their minds over these new Diorshow On Stage liquid liners for good reason. Excellent pigment flow-through for exacting graphic shapes, and in every color imaginable (including Vinyl Black and Matte Black). Shayna opted for Pearly Turquoise and only applied in the inner corner of Shaanti's eye. Matches perfectly with YSL's La Laque Couture in Kinetic Blue.

Tom Ford Shadow Extrême


There's something about the Tom Ford Shadow Extrême singles... They're absolutely adorable. The tiny ("clutch-sized," the website calls them) packaging paired with super serious pigment payoff makes for a collectible experience not unlike Pokémon cards, or whatever it is the kids are stocking away these days. (Beanie Babies?) The shades are best described as "editorial," which isn't to say they aren't versatile—these guys can go from shimmery wash to opaque print in a few brush swipes. Shayna—because she's a pro and gets paid to do this—did liner strokes of TFX13 (a light violet) and TFX16 (a glittering lavender) over a foundation Marc Jacobs Highliner in N(Ice) across the lid.

Pat McGrath Labs Lust Lip Gloss


And Pat McGrath said, "I am the lord thy God—thou shalt not use any lip glosses other than Blood 2 before me." The patent red laquer is your new commandment.

YSL Pop Illusion Couture Palette


If the blue accent above whets your summer eye look palate, please cannonball directly into YSL's swimming pool of a seasonal offering. The five colors here are oceanique and glittery—just the right amount of whimsy for a summer vacation inspired by a Fellini film. There's navy in there, too, so it's versatile! Shayna paired a wash of the light blue shade (upper lefthand corner) with a few liner dots of the Diorshow On Stage Liner in Matte Blue. Everything's come full circle now, hasn't it?
