Simply Summer

I have been meaning to post this look for a while, but life and prom season took over my schedule! ha ha ha -With things starting to calm down a bit, I plan to start posting more often .

This look is very summer to me. Plus it is neutral, simple, and works for ANY outfit, day or night! I hope you enjoy it!



To get this look I used:

Skin: I primed my sking with MAC Oil Control Lotion & MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50. I then applied MAC Studio Fix Fluid mixed with a few drops of MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush. I mixed the foundation and drops  on my makeup palette and then buffed it on lightly with a MAC 130 Brush.
I set just the T-zone of my face with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.

Cheeks:  I applied the same lustre drops that I mixed with my foundation to the highest point on my cheekbone just below the outer corner of my eyes, and I buffed that in, using a circular motion with a MAC 224 Brush. I then applied MAC Raizin Blush to the apples of my cheeks, and contoured my cheeks with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Give Me Sun!

Eyes: I used MAC Brow Pencil in Spiked for my eyebrows. Two Faced Shadow Insurance was used on my entire eye area,. As a base color I applied MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot to my entire eye area, using a MAC 217 Brush. To my highlight & mobile eyelid, I applied Inglot Eyeshadow #30 using a MAC 239 Brush. I placed MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Give Me Sun! through my entire crease & MAC Saddle Eyeshadow through my outer crease, both using a MAC 217 Brush. Instead of white, I used a cream colored eyeliner on the lower waterline of my eye. I used a MAC 209 Brush & Inglot AMC Gel Liner in #77 to apply my eyeliner to the top lash lines only & the number of the lashes escapes me. (sorry!). For mascara I used MAC Studio Fix Lash in Black.

Lips: I first applied MAC Prep + Prime Lips and then lined my lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare, fading it in just a smidge and then going over the top of it with Inglot Lip Paint #66. Lastly I applied a touch of Inglot AMC Lip Gloss in #546 to finish!

OH! I almost forgot! Anytime I have glowing skin on my face, I also like the rest of my body to match sooooo....if you notice a subtle sheen on the rest of my skin that you can see it is the MAC Skinsheen Leg Spray in Dark!

Thanks!   =0)
