Summer in the city – such a fun & electric feeling, but it can be difficult to keep makeup on & fresh all day in the heat.Read on for my favourite Summer city makeup tips!
This time of year, I like to keep makeup simple & lightweight so that it stays put and looking great all day.
1. After applying a mattifying primer & the base of your choice (I recommend Flawless & Poreless Primer and H2O Skintint), trace upper lash line with a waterproof liner in a warm brown shade. If you’re looking for a more dramatic look, smudge a bit under lower lash line as well.2. Tint lips with a true red lip crayon – apply, then blot with a tissue for the perfect “lived-in”, casual look. Apply another layer & blot again for a more intense shade.
3. Brighten up with a highlighter a few shades lighter than your skintone – try one with a matte end and a shimmer end for a gorgeously dimensional look. Apply into inner corner of eye, brow bone, top of cheek bone, down the center of the nose, and into bow of upper lip, softly blending out for the ultimate skin enhancement.
What to wear? I love to keep things fresh and light in a crisp white dress – go for a romantic, flowy cut so that it doesn’t look too severe.Add an intensely bright nail colour (bonus points if it is specifically named for the season, like our Summer Pink pictured above :)) to complete the look.
