Before I get into anything serious, I just want to tell you all that this post goes hand in hand with a video tutorial I made on this look. So after reading this blog post, do head on over to my YT video, link here!
I started this look with applying the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Moisturizer SPF 30 because I tend to develop freckles really easily–Protect Yo Skin, kids! Like 30 SPF isn’t good enough for my face, I still prefer to use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted BB Moisturizer in Ivory, which also has about 15 SPF in the product.
I like to use my trusted concealers, Benefit Erase Paste in Light and L’Oreal True Match Corrector to conceal and hide my imperfections like those darn hormonal spots, scars and the classic dark circles.
I specifically like to set my under eyes with a translucent powder. With that, I use the Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder to dust all over my face. Since I don’t really enjoying basking under the sun at all that often, I like to mimic a tan and the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer gives me that perfect ” I have been by the pool tanning all morning” look. While the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso to add just a wash of color on my cheeks.
On the eyes, I lend to keep it really simple with theMaybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige as my base then setting it with 2 neutral colors from the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2014 Palette and at the same time adding a bit of shade on my crease. And applying a modest amount of the Catrice Glamour Doll Mascara in a waterproof formula.
During the summer, eyebrows can be a hit or miss. Sometimes those pomade applications can just melt off your face in no time. That’s why I use the Pixi Natural Brow Duo in Brunette that also comes with a brow gel!
Then to top of this whole look, I used my favorite high end nude lip, the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick in Lychee Parfait.
