Summer Fun Look: Green, Coral, & Purple

How’s your Sunday treating you? I did this look late last night, as I was determined to be somewhat productive.  (Although, I did get my cheat sheet ready for my final on Monday!)  Just a fun, summery look that came out better than I thought it would!  I hope you’re enjoying your weekend :)

P.S. — For a more affordable lip look, try MAC Ravishing and Lychee Luxe.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow on the inner two-thirds of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Apply Firecracker eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Psychedelic Sister eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Float On By eye kohl on the lower lash line, then lightly pat Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow to soften. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Traviata blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply #101 lipstick first, and then layer #3 lipgloss for a complementing lip.

Summer Makeup: Molten Lava Goes To the Beach

Happy Thursday, everyone! :) I hope everyone’s been having a fantastic week — almost to the weekend (a long one, if you’re in the U.S., too!).  I totally went to my comfort zone with this look — metallic, bronzy, coppery shades.  I can’t remember if I’ve done a look like this recently, but I don’t think I’ve done it usually mostly permanent eyeshadows!  I snuck some To the Beach products in there, in honor of the official launch.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Free Love eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid, then lightly layer with Goldmine eyeshadow and blend upwards into the tearduct. Lightly blend Firecracker eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Bronze eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending outwards and upwards to fade to the brow bone. With the 239, apply Amber Lights eyeshadow into the lower crease and then blended towards the outer corner and lid. Blend Nylon eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash line and Black Black pencil on the lower waterline.  Line the upper lash line with Rich Ground fluidline applied with the 208; then pat Goldmine eyeshadow on top to lighten.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Get-Away Bronze blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Thrills lipstick first, and then layer Easy Lounger lipglass for a complementing lip.
