Summer Makeup Routine
I love experimenting with my makeup but sometimes I get stuck in a certain routine, just like now. I have been wearing the same kind of look for the last several weeks almost every day.
So what is it all about?
For the base I’ve been usually using Clarins’ BB Cream or Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer to even out the skin tone. I love that both products feel light on the skin, which is exactly what you want in summer.
I have been skipping blusher lately. Shocker, right? And instead I have been using bronzers, just any that is around, really. Below you can see pictured Clarins, Benefit and Trish McEvoy just as an example.
Finally my skin tone is a perfect match for Jouer highlighter, this warm tinted product gives a beautiful golden glow, just perfect paired with some bronzer. I definitely recommend it for a sun kissed look. As for High Beam, it is a good ol’ favourite of mine, it never fails.
I’ve been hardly using any eye shadows, expect this quad from Daniel Sandler and some matte shades. For me it’s all about the eye brows these days! I just make sure that they are very defined and full. Anastasia, Korres and Benefit help me with that.
As for the eye makeup, I just wear an eye pencil (or gel liner) on the top line, brown or purple or something bright and fun (like turquoise), but not black, as I find that it is too much for summer, at least on myself.
Since there is not much going on, I like to play it up a bit when it comes to lips. Although orange (see my picks) or coral (my suggestions) are the usual picks for summer, I personally love red or pink better.
