Today I'm Wearing #13: An Effortless, Glowing Summer Makeup Look




Hello Lovelies! Today I want to give you a quick rundown of the makeup I've been using lately. My main focus when doing this look is to brighten & enhance my skin, while subtly drawing attention to my eyes. The entire process takes 10 mins tops & gives a natural, sunkissed look, perfect for a warm summer day. 


Step 1: I mix a little Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed into my foundation, Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup. I buff a sheer layer of this all over my face using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

Step 2: I conceal under my eyes, around my nose & any other imperfections using my Clinique Airbrush Concealer. I then set everything with a light dusting of MAC Blot Powder. 

Step 3: On the eyes, I apply a sheer wash of Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Emerveille, a gorgeous shimmering peach-nude all over the lid, along the lower lash line, & in the inner corner of my eyes. I then layer MAC Eyeshadow in Woodwinked, a burnished gold shade, in the outer 2/3 of the eye & blend up into the crease. I finish off the eyes with a little black liquid liner on the top lash line & two coats of Revlon's Photoready 3D Mascara on both top & bottom lashes. 

Step 4: On the cheeks I apply tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface  for a pretty flush of pink. I then take my favorite highlighter, Benefit Watt's Up!, and using my fingers blend this shimmering nude/light bronze shade along my cheekbones to highlight my face. 

Step 5: On the lips, I simply swipe on tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain in Charmed & blend the color in a little using my finger. 

Step 6: I set all my makeup in place with a few spritzes of Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray &  I'm out the door!
