Its Sunday and instead of my Celebrity Makeup Files feature, I’m doing a compilation of looks that have been inspiring me for summer makeup. There are many different trends when it comes to makeup for each season but there are some looks that are classic and timeless and no matter what the trend, they look and feel right for the season! Whether it be rosy,dewy freshness or a pop of color on the eyes or lips, summer is all about keeping it light and fresh!
I recently picked up MAC eye shadow in Freshwater and here’s the look I tried out with it. I have paired an electric blue/green eye with subtle corallips and warmblush. I haven’t worn a blue eye makeup look in a long time and I really enjoyed doing it. The look is summery and the bright blue eye adds a lot of freshness to the look.
I had the Title for this look picked out when I wore it for the L’oreal Paris- Femina Women Awards night. I liked this look so much that I re-created it one afternoon few days back to share with all of you. Its a red lips look essentially but with a bit of a modern twist on the eyes where I’ve used a good dose of heavy antique gold glitter(MAC Paint pot Genuine Treasure)! The skin is lightly bronzed with the new Illamasqua Skin Base in Au (Gold) and the lips are a dark deep red.
Today I’m doing a summerinspiredlook using the shades turquoiseand purple on the eyes paired with sheer pink on the lips. I have used matte shades on the eyes and sheer color for the lips, the overall look comes out quite fresh with just a touch of color.
