Anyway enough of my bubbling. About the look. When it comes to summer, I prefer having a very simple makeup look because if I don't I think that my makeup will start melting, and I don't need something like that in my life. What I just said might have tricked you, you maybe thinking that I'm using few makeup products but nop. Here's what we'll need for today's look.
post) & Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation (post)
Eyes: Manhattan Khol Kajal Eyeliner 17, Cien Volume Mascara Extreme Lashes (post) & any kind of eyebrow pencil
Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills Orchid Liquid Lipstick
Finishing touch: The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals loose powder foundation shade 208 golden vanilla(contour), The Body Shop Loose Face Powder 03 & The Body Shop Baked Blush shade 01 Petal(blush and highlight).
What I did.
I used concealers where I was supposed to, green on the red spots, yellow and a little bit of pink under my eyes, light beige above all other colors so I won't look like I was on a color factory that exploded. Above all the concealers, I put my foundation with a stippling brush. It's a very watery foundation so that's the brush that suits it better. Then, my base was ready so I moved to my eyes. Eyebrows comes first so I filled them with my pencil. I chose a gray soft pencil to put on my eye lid, because it's a color that can make the eye pop but not too much, like a darker color would do, that's what I like for summer. I put it only on the outer corner of my eyes thicker and softly thinning it when going inner. I have upturned kind of eyes so I figured out throughout the years that is the best way for me to wear eyeliner. Some mascara for finishing and that's it. For my lips, I chose a purple color, it's not that summery but it's gorgeous. I loooove it! About the final touch. I did a little bit of contouring, I know you may think it's too much for summer but it's up to us. If we won't overdo it with the contouring, then it won't look so "heavy". After that, I did some highlighting, and I put my pink blusher on. On this post, I put a properly amount of product so I don't look like someone slapped me, like the Classic Beauty one.
So that's the final look, nice and simple. I chose today's foundation to have a good SPF because it could give us the cover we need but it would provide us with a nice UV protection. But, when I wear a sunblock on my face, I wear on the other parts of my body that are going to be exposed to sun, like arms and legs. When I'm on the city I mostly use sunblocks with SPF30, because I'm not going to be that much under sun but when I'm on the beach SPF50+ becomes my best friend. When we're on a sunny beach enjoying ourselves, our skin kinda suffers. After all the exposure it had under the bad UV radiation it need to be treated right and be moisturized.
What about hair? Hair is suffering from sun. It's on top of our heads so it needs some protection right? I'm actually using SPF protection there as well. I'm that kind of person. Today I didn't have any hair tutorial to show you just because I don't even use a hair dryer when the hot days are coming. I don't do any hair styles, I may be some times wear my hair up and that's it.
