Yesterday I decided to stress my sister out and made her take these pictures for me for today's post. It was hectic but thankfully, we got it all done. I came up with what would be my ideal summer make-up look and complemented it with four different outfit pairings that I would rock for different occasions. The look is a combination of yellows, greens and oranges, which in my opinion represent the perfect summer colours. They are bold, vibrant and fun and can be worn during the day or at night time. To achieve the look, I only used drugstore products and was light handed in my application of each product so the look didn't come across heavy or cakey...this is the summer after all.
The first look I put together was a more casual look with a pair of flared jeans I picked up from a store at Collin Creek Mall for less than $10 with an orange off shoulder top with lace details form H&M that also cost less than $10. I would rock this look to the movies either during the day or to catch an evening film. It's very comfortable and requires little to no fuss at all.
I used the Juvias Place Zulu and Hard Candy eye shadow palettes for my eyes, the Salon Perfect brow pomade and L.A Girl Concealer in Chestnut for my brows. Maybelline's 24 hour matte foundation is what I have on my face after priming and colour correcting with L.A Girl's Pro Prep HD Pro Face Primer and their Orange Corrector. My under eye, chin and forehead concealer is by Maybelline and for my contour I used Ruby Kisses 3D Contour Artist Powder palette. To set my concealer, I used Airspun loose powder and then the Iman compact face powder for the rest of my face. My mascara is by Rimmel and on my lips is a combination of Zaron lip pencil in Red and NYX Butter Gloss. The look is completed with Claire's Setting Spray to tone down the powdery effect of the look and voila! What I found neat is that the make-up somehow was able to reflect the dominant colours of each individual look, making it my perfect look for the summer.
Hope you enjoyed the looks and let me know what some of your favourite colour combos are for the Summer.
