10 Celebrity-Inspired Ways to Do Your Makeup for a Summer Concert

Even if you have the coolest outfit picked out, your summer concert look isn’t complete without selfie-worthy makeup to go with it, which is why we turned to celebrities for some inspiration. From dark, sultry lips to gold, glittery eyeshadow, here’s 10 different celebrity-inspired ways you can rock your makeup to a summer concert.


It’s no secret Adele is a beauty queen. Her makeup is always flawless. If you have tickets to see her concert this summer, rock the singer’s signature dramatic cat-eye eyeliner with bold eyebrows and a pouty red lip.

Zendaya’s eyebrows are #goals. We love how she lets them be the star of the show by keeping the rest of her makeup fairly neutral. This look is great for both a daytime and nighttime concert.

Lucy Hale

Bring out your dark side this summer with a black lipstick like Lucy Hale. Pair it with full eyebrows but keep the rest of your makeup minimal to let the lips be the focal point of the look.

Khloe Kardashian

Although bright colors are synonymous with summertime, we love how Khloe Kardashian instead embraced a dark, sultry plum color. To keep the look from being over-the-top, skip the eyeshadow and just play up the eyes with smudged out eyeliner.

Shay Mitchell

Actress Shay Mitchell proves pink isn’t just for your lips. Accentuate your eyes by dusting a pink eyeshadow on your lids and finish with a generous amount of highlighter along the cheekbones for a red carpet-worthy glow.
