Why We Are Entering Summer in Our Lana-Core Era

Why We Are Entering Summer in Our Lana-Core Era

When it comes to summer beauty, Lana Del Rey reigns supreme as the ultimate muse. Her ethereal aesthetic and vintage-inspired glamour have captivated audiences around the world, inspiring countless makeup enthusiasts to recreate her iconic looks. So, grab your makeup brushes and get ready to channel your inner Lana as we delve into the secrets behind her signature summer makeup styles!


The Classic Cat Eye


No discussion of Lana Del Rey's makeup would be complete without mentioning her iconic cat eye. Sharp, sultry, and oh-so-alluring, the cat eye has become synonymous with Lana's retro-inspired aesthetic. Whether she's lounging poolside or performing on stage, Lana never fails to rock the perfect winged liner, adding a touch of vintage glamour to any look.


To master Lana's signature cat eye, start by using a waterproof liquid eyeliner to create a precise line along your upper lash line. We love Toi Beauty’s Your Go-To Liquid Eyeliner. Then, extend the line outward and upward, flicking it slightly at the outer corner for that classic winged effect. Don't worry if it's not perfect—Lana herself has admitted to embracing imperfection when it comes to her makeup. Finish off the look with a few coats of mascara to add volume and length to your lashes, and voila—you're ready to take on the world with Lana-worthy confidence!


Dewy Complexion and Rosy Cheeks


Lana's makeup enhances her natural beauty, and nowhere is this more evident than in her dewy complexion and flushed cheeks. Rather than heavy contouring and matte finishes, Lana opts for a more radiant, youthful glow that exudes a fresh-faced charm.


To achieve Lana's lit-from-within glow, start by prepping your skin with a hydrating moisturizer and a luminous primer to create a smooth canvas. We love Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair® Illuminating Glow Face Primer. Then, apply a lightweight, dewy foundation or tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone while still allowing your natural radiance to shine through. Next, add a pop of colour to your cheeks with a creamy blush in a soft, rosy hue, blending it onto the apples of your cheeks for a youthful flush.


Soft, Rosy Lips


Last but not least, no Lana-inspired makeup look would be complete without her signature soft, rosy lips. Whether she's rocking a bold red lip or a subtle nude, Lana's lips always look perfectly plush and pillowy, adding the finishing touch to her ethereal beauty.


To achieve Lana's luscious lip look, start by exfoliating your lips to remove any dry, flaky skin. Then, apply a hydrating lip balm to moisturize and prep your lips for colour. For a subtle, natural look, opt for a creamy nude lipstick or lip gloss that complements your skin tone. If you're feeling bold and adventurous, channel Lana's old Hollywood glamour with a classic red lip that's sure to turn heads wherever you go.


Our top three lip products are IS Clinical Lip Polish to prep and exfoliate, GM Collin Paris Repair Lip Balm to hydrate, and Wonderblush La Laque Tinted Lip Oil for a little colour.


With her timeless elegance and vintage-inspired glamour, Lana Del Rey has solidified her status as the ultimate summer beauty icon. From her sultry cat eye to her dewy complexion and rosy lips, Lana's makeup looks are as iconic as they are achievable, making them the perfect inspiration for your summer beauty routine. So, channel your inner Lana, embrace your unique beauty, and get ready to take on the world with confidence and style!


Until next time,
