Summer is the time to show a little skin and embrace your inner sexiness. Relish in the passionate heat by trying sexy looks that go far beyond items of clothing. No matter what you wear, smolder this season with the best makeup looks for any style.

We are such fans of Camilla Belle's luscious makeup look for the red carpet. Nothing screams hot summer beauty like Belle's dewy skin which gives her a brilliant glow. It's easy to fake this look with a powder highlighter dabbed just around the inner corners of your eyes and centers of your lids. Sun-kissed and sultry! Bright and bold lipstick was the recurring theme of spring/summer 2013 runway shows. Try a pop of color like Camilla's standout pink shade or go for a neon and stun in the sun. Daring tones are a great alternative to the timeless bold red for the summer, but don't be afraid to still have fun with a juicy red!
