Natural with Color Clashes
Summer in the sun makes me want to go a bit lighter on the makeup then usual. I love bronzed, natural-looking skin with just a little clash of color like a bright red on the lips, or a neon orange on toenails, peeking out through sandals. This entry is about being natural, with a little pop of color clash.
My favorite palette to create a little clash of color – the Bright Delight palette! I can find at least a million ways to use it – I love using one of the hues (any of them!) smudged into lower lash line for a subtle peeper pick-up!
1) Even out imperfections and softly contour skin by blending No Show Camouflage Fix onto complexion. Use warm, clean fingertips and press into skin. Use the light green-yellow to counteract redness and to lighten any darkness, as well as top of cheekbones. Mix to customize concealer shades as needed to match & perfect complexion. Blend well.
2) Using the Naturally Bare palette, take the light pearl (top row, second from left) and brush onto eyelids & into the corner of the eyes. Then use the soft caramel (bottom row, second from left) into the outer corner of the crease. Blend well. Grab a slightly bigger brush and blend a little of the same caramel hue onto the apples of the cheeks and blend well.
3) Curl lashes and apply Lash Kapow mascara from roots tips of lashes using zig-zag movements. Use brush to fan lashes outward and upward, coating each and every lash. Keep building until you have a jet black, volumized and dramatic lash effect.
4)Smooth the BB Lip Balm in Pink Lemonade onto lips. Kiss off excess onto a napkin and apply one more coat. Throw lip balm into purse or pocket for touch-ups on the go and a nourishing lip treat!
5)Apply Nail Glam in Orange onto nails. Stroke the brush from base to tip, once in the center and a stroke to either side for a clean finish. Apply a second coat for more colour intensity.
Me and my lovely sister, makeup-free apart from bright lips. Easy transition from beach to dinner!
Kiss, swim, eat & drink proof. Can’t think of a better summer lip companion than Stain Stay. With a slight dew, this lip ink won’t budge and eliminates the need for touch-ups! The Poppy Kiss shade is that perfect tone of classic red that suits everyone. LOVE!
