9 Pretty & Simple Summer Looks Using Safe Kids’ Makeup Kits

Bright pops, dewy lips, hazy eyes and holographic highlighter...here’s how to recreate summer’s prettiest makeup trends using all pediatrician-approved makeup kits safe for kids, tweens and teens to get creative this season.  

When we think summer makeup, we think sun-kissed bronzy skin, pretty washes of sheer color and just enough sparkle to catch that golden-hour glow. The spring/summer 2019 runway did not disappoint. In fact, it overdelivered with all that and more — bright pops, dewy lips, hazy eyes and holographic highlighter. We couldn’t wait to recreate them all as kid-friendly makeup looks for summer using our bestselling birthday makeup kits (which make the BEST gifts for girls, birthday or no birthday).  

Keep reading to get inspired and learn how to get these summery makeup looks, plus which makeup kits, palettes, glosses and glitter to get young creatives to recreate them easily on their own.   


Hazy eyes are officially the new smoky eyes (and way easier, especially for beauty beginners). The key to the hazy effect is blend, blend, blend. First, use a more compact brush to concentrate Sandbar Shimmer from the 9021-BUNGALOW! Palette (best bronzy eyeshadows ever) in the inner corner and blend toward the center. Then, take a fluffier brush to keep blending the pigment out toward the outer eye with a more sheer wash. The more you blend, the hazier the look! Finish with a swipe of 10K Shine in GlowDown for a matchy-matchy nude lip.

For some (like us) glitter isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle. So seeing all-over glitter eyes show up all over the runway from graphic metallic shapes to sheer shimmer washes was validating, to say the least. To get this look, we used Bungalow Bronze from the 9021-GLOW! Eye & Cheek Palette across the eyelid all the way up to the brow bone. The shade’s sheer, buildable formula makes it easy to go from a soft wash using a fluffy brush to a full-on gilded metallic finish with a compact brush. Finish with a swipe of sparkle across the lips using 10K Shine in Diamond Heist.

This summer’s boldest beauty trend is bright pops of color dominating the eyes with minimal attention on cheeks and lips. The effect is eye-catching without feeling over the top. We layered our most blingin’ (and buildable) pinks — Pop!-Arazzi and Poolside Bling — to create a bright-eyed look that stands out the more you blend it in. Finish with a dab of glossy lip balm in $tocks & Bronze to keep lips soft with a subtle.

On a summer (makeup) break? It’s trending with glowy skin, just-about-bare eyes and dewy lips that bring a whole new look to fresh-faced. Minimal eye and cheek makeup (think matte nude eyeshadow and soft peachy blush) feel just right for summer days in the sun (plus sunscreen, of course!). Super glossy lips keep the no-makeup makeup look intact with a maximum-dew contrast.

But it ain’t contoured. This summer’s bronze is sweeping the tops of cheekbones for a more sun-kissed, less cut-from-stone look that feels easygoing and carefree — just like summer. Pair with matching bronze eyes for the full sun-soaked effect and finish by layering glossy lip balms for a soft color contrast.

Monochromatic color stories are getting a summer refresh in petal soft hues kissing eyes, cheeks and lips. For an all-pink sheer wash of color, opt for the sheer shades of the 9021-GLOW! Palette, like Flashing Lights across the eyes and Pink Palms blended boldly across the entire cheek, and the softest pink glossy lip balm, Bank on Pink. To take your sheer look in a peachier direction, look to the 9021-BUNGALOW! Palette’s TropiCali and Poolside Posh shades, plus the coral-hued glossy lip balm, $hine Bright.

Our new unexpected makeup combo (and the easiest look ever) is a stand-out matte eye with glossy lips. To recreate this look, simply pick a matte shade (neutral or bright) that contrasts with your skin tone and pack it across the eyelid, then layer $ell Out on thick over the lips for a clear, color free glossy contrast.

If it glitters, we’re about it. Especially when it’s an otherworldly holographic glitter lighting up the cheeks in dramatic fashion. Our holographic purple-pink glitter BLVD Bling was born to bring this highlighter trend to life in a big (but kid-friendly) way with its high-impact mica-made sparkle and water-based formula. Use the custom doe foot and your fingertips to dab and blend the body glitter across the cheekbones. Then take a bit of Beamer from the 9021-GLOW! palette and blend up and out to the hairline with a fluffy brush. The more you blend, the more seamlessly the holographic finish glows.

A satin berry eye and glossy petal lip is our favorite color combo of the summer! And our new 9021-BUNGALOW palette has the perfect sparkling cranberry shade to make it happen: Cue, Cabana Bae. Simply blend all over the eyelid with a fluffy brush to keep the rich pigment petal-soft. Finish with a glossy lip balm in Go for Broke from a lavender sheen across the lips.
