We promised we’d be back with a Summer makeup look to match the base we created in Part One - and here it is!
Summer makeup is all about enhancing what you’ve got, rather than looking overly made up, so for this look we’ve used a selection of natural tones that will leave your complexion looking glowing.
Bronze… Add Lily Lolo’s Summer 2012 Mineral Bronzer in South Beach across cheekbones, blending up into temples, with a light dusting across forehead, nose and chin - not forgetting the neck to avoid a mismatched face and body!
Blush… A whisper of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks adds a healthy glow and balances the face - try Lily Lolo Surfer Girl.
Eyes… You might be wearing your favourite new sunglasses, but you still want your eyes to look naturally defined when you take them off - tightline close to the lashline and lengthen lashes with NATorigin eyeliner and mascara in brown.
If you don’t like to skip eyeshadow, try Nvey’s Eco Organic palette no3 for the most gorgeous is-she-or-isn’t-she nude tones, not forgetting a touch of white at inner corners to really open the eye area and make you look wide awake!
Brows are all important in a minimal makeup look - defining them can have the effect of a mini eyelift and really frame the face… we love Inika’s Brow Pencil in Blonde to give added polish and definition.
Lips… protect this delicate area using a lipbalm with added spf, such as EOS Lemon Drop SPF 15, before adding a layer of creamy moisturising colour. While lipgloss is the obvious choice for many, lipstick is making a huge comeback and we find it needs fewer touch ups - bonus! Lily Lolo’s newly launched lipstick range is rich and creamy… Demure is perfect for the perfect nude-but-not-chalky lip.
