Colorful Lightweight Summer Make-Up Look
So lately (like most of the makeup community) I have been really into warm tones. I wanted to create a look that wasn’t exactly natural but also wasn’t a mask, had a pop of color, and lasted all day. I mean, you don’t want your sweat to move around layers of makeup on your skin. But you also want to look flawless. Not a lot to ask for, right? I ended up with an orange semi-smokey look with a killer wing I created using Mia Adora’s Unshakeable Eyeliner, more on that later.
My secret when I want a more natural skin finish is to use a lighter coverage foundation, fuller coverage concealer, and the tiniest amount of powder. For this look I used L’Oreal’s Lumi Cushion Foundation. It keeps me glowy but it doesn’t offer a ton of coverage so it’s perfect for days like this, then like to go in with a more pigmented concealer to spot conceal problem areas. I used my Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer for this and you really only need the tiniest amount of this stuff, it’s pigmented. I like to go under my eyes, around my nose, and chin then I bounce the remains of the product on my forehead with whatever is left on my beauty blender. That way I have a flawless base without the heaviness. I set my t-zone with my favorite Charlotte Tilbury powder. For cheeks I have Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting Blush in “Brilliant Nude” + Becca’s “Moonstone”, an oldie but a goodie. For my lips I combined Urban Decay’s “Naked 2” lipliner + “Fuel” lipstick for the perfect warm neutral lip.
The eyes are the focus of the look, for that I used UD’s “Naked Heat” to create this softer orange smokey eye and for my intense wing I’m using Mia Adora’s Unshakeable Eyeliner. This stuff is pigmented, precise, and sweat proof. It lasted through a SoBe summer day and didn’t smudge or budge. Did I also mention it’s extremely affordable?
