Summer might have been close to being over but this doesn’t mean it’s already too late to create a makeup look which we can all sport till the remaining summer days.
I haven’t actually been to the beach yet for this summer because I’ve been loaded and bombarded with work. The good thing though is I think the org I work for is planning on a corporate outing somewhere in Zambales. No definitely location yet but it would definitely be this May. I so can’t wait! Well, honestly, I’m not much of a beach person but I do love looking the sea, the sun and the sand which totally puts me in the mood to work on another poem and I just can’t wait to be inspired again. And because of that awesome news, I just can’t help myself but create a makeup look which I can call my summer makeup look because of how light and bright it is.
As you might have noticed, I have been practicing on my contouring but I’m skipping on the contouring part this time just to keep everything fresh for this look. Hey, this is a summer makeup look so let’s make this as light as possible, right?
FACE: SanSan BB Cream | SanSan Foundation Cream | NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush in West Side Wine | Snoe Fresh Custard Body and Face Powder in Nectarine Ginger Tea
EYES: Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Brown | Ever Bilena Advance HD Colorless Mascara | Virginia Olsen Mineral Eyeshadow in Tulips | Virginia Olsen Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Bars | Rimmel Colour Rush Trio Eyeshadow in Orion | SanSan Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black | SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in Black | Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof in Brownish Black
LIPS: Lip Ice Lip Balm in Orange Mandarin | Skin Food The Chocolate Makes You More Sweet & Deep
HOW I DID IT:
For starters, I just did my usual foundation routine: The SanSan BB Cream applied evenly on my face then used the SanSan Foundation Cream as my concealer. After that, I used the Snoe Fresh Custard Body and Face Powder in Nectarine Ginger Tea to set my foundation, used the NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush in West Side Wine as my blush and then I’m good!
Now, moving on to the eyes, I used the Bilena Color Pencil in Brown to fill in my brows and then the Ever Bilena Advance HD Colorless Mascara to tame them down. After that, I used the Virginia Olsen Mineral Eyeshadow in Tulips all over my lids and then blended it with the darker brown shade from my Rimmel Colour Rush Trio Eyeshadow in Orion with more emphasis on the outer part of the lids and on the crease area. Then, I used the white shade from the same eyeshadow palette for my brow bones and used the Virginia Olsen Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Bars for my inner eye corner. Then, I used the SanSan Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black for my upper lid and the SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in Black for my waterline. For the finishing touch on my eyes, I curled it and used the Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof in Brownish Black.
For the lips, I used the Lip Ice Lip Balm in Orange Mandarin first and then topped it with my Skin Food The Chocolate Makes You More Sweet & Deep which is a nude lip gloss I’m so totally loving. And yes, I still use balm even if I’m using a lip gloss. Just like how Julia Roberts says it in Pretty Woman, “I’m a safety gal!”
Oh I’ve been totally inspired to do FOTD’s more and I just don’t know what put me back in the mood or is it because... Hmm... Hahaha! Well, I hope you enjoy my FOTDs as you’d be seeing more of them but I do hope you’d help me with pegs and inspirations. Do write down at the comments section below for your suggestions as to what kind of look you’d want to see me do in my next FOTD.
Thanks for reading and have an awesome day!
