Look: Summer Glow


It's finally here! Summer is my absolute favorite season. Warm sun, cool breeze, sunglasses, high waisted shorts and crop tops - I love everything about it! I guess most of it has to do with me being raised in the tropics. I'm a literal beach baby. So here's a fun look I put together, inspired by the warm tones of this season.

I started by concealing my eyebags and other spots with my MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer and blended it out with my fingers. Highlighting and contouring is key to a sun-kissed look. I went ahead and used Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Spot Corrector in Light/Medium as a highlighter. I actually bought this shade by mistake because it was too light for me. But it makes a perfect highlighter. Then I contoured my cheekbones, the temples of my head, and my nose with Sleek Luminous Pressed Powder no. 04. After blending everything together, I coated my face with MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation.


Moving on to the eyes, I started by filling in my brows with Etude House Easy Brow Pencil and highlighting my brow bones with Sleek Pillow Talk (Sleek Ultra Matte v2), a matte cream-colored eyeshadow. Next, I placed a sheer, Shimmery Gold eyeshadow from the Sleek Storm Palette on my lids. The gold is what gives that little "water shine" look on your eyes. Then I blended it in with Sleek Paperbag (Sleek Ultra Matte v2), a dark brown matte eyeshadow, to add more depth to my eyes. Now comes my favorite part - lining my waterline with Sleek Blue Lagoon (Sleek Curacao), an electric blue color. Coloring your waterline with a neon color adds a little fun and creativity to your look without overdoing it. To finish of my eye make up, I used NYX Super Fat Marker on my lids and Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara to coat my lashes.


Finishing off, I locked everything in with my MAC Lightful Powder. Then swept a gorgeous tan colored blush, MAC Enough Said, on the apples of my cheeks. And finally my favorite nude lippie, NYX Matte Lip Creme in London on my lips. 

Happy Summer, Beauties! x
