SUMMER SHIMMER - A CLOSER LOOK

SHIMMER AT NIGHT



DRESS FROM SAKS 5TH AVENUE


LINE THE LOWER LASH LINE AND USING A PENCIL BRUSH SMUDGE THE LASH BED AND LASH LINE

LINE THE LASH BED AS WELL.

FOR THE EVENING, LINE THE UPPER WATERLINE WITH A BROWN KOHL PENCIL LIKE TEDDY FROM MAC

YOU CAN NOW HAVE COFFEE OUTDOORS AND ENJOY THE WEATHER :) HEHEHE

YOUR DAY LOOK COMPLETED

MAKE LIPS KISSABLE BY APPLYING INGLOT AMC GLOSS.

DEFINE THE LIPS WITH MAC SPICE LIPLINER

APPLY IT FROM THE CHEEKPLANE ALL THE WAY TO THE HAIR LINE.

USE A SHIMMER BRICK LIKE THIS ONE FROM INGLOT FOR THE ADDED GLOW.


ADD WARMTH TO YOUR FACE BY USING DIOR BRONZER APPLIED ON THE APPLES OF THE CHEEKS, CHIN, TIP OF THE NOSE AND FOREHEAD.

LINE THE WATERLINE WITH A WHITE PENCIL TO BRIGHTEN THE EYES.

SOFTLY DEFINE THE EYES WITH A MEDIUM BROWN SHADOW APPLIED ON THE LASHLINE WITH A MAC 266.

APPLY MASCARA AND COMB THROUGH AND APPLY ANOTHER COAT.

CURL YOUR LASHES.


WITH A FLAT SHADER BRUSH APPLY MAC PIGMENTS IN FOOL'S GOLD ON THE BROWBONE FOR HIGHLIGHT.

BLEND.


WITH A MAC 266 BRUSH APPLY A MEDIUM BROWN SHADOW ON THE CREASE.

APPLY LIQUID SHADOW IN GOLD FROM BOURJOIS FROM THE LASH BED TO THE CREASE

USING A MAC 266 BRUSH AND BROWZINGS FROM BENEFIT, FILL IN YOUR BROWS AND KEEP THEM IN PLACE WITH A BROW GEL FROM MIKYAJY.

USE A FLUFFY BRUSH FOR A LIGHT YET POLISHED FINISH.

USE A LIGHT POWDER TO SET YOUR BASE.

I FIND THAT BLENDING THE CONCEALER WITH A MAC 224 GIVES IT AN AIRBRUSH FEEL.


COVER YOUR DARK CIRCLES WITH MAC STUDIO SCULPT CONCEALER

WHEN APPLYING FOUNDATION, FOLLOW THE MANTRA OF, 'DON'T FIX WHAT'S NOT BROKEN.' MOST ESPECIALLY DURING SUMMER. APPLY ON THE T ZONE AND SPREAD.

APPLY A LIGHT FOUNDATION LIKE INGLOT'S AMC FOUNDATION

KEEP YOUR SKIN LOOKING FRESH WITH A SILICON BASED PRIMER LIKE INGLOT'S

GO FOR SUNLESS TANNING WITH DIOR.

This is a closer look at the Beauty Article that I did for IN Magazine's July Issue. Hope you guys like it.

Just reminder, its the 29th today, PAYDAY! Spend your money wisely and don't forget to tuck away some for the rainy days :) Have a great weekend everyone, signing out for July. :)

I love your blogs, thanks this article was awesome... what foundation other than mac do you recommended that is not that expensive?

You seriously give me the urge to go into my bathroom and play with different looks. Love the saying 'DON'T FIX WHAT'S NOT BROKEN.' when applying foundation! :)

Hi Adri, there are a lot of great drugstore foundations out there. Here are some of my recommendations
1. REVLON Colour Stay Foundation
The coverage is amazing but the
drawback is the scent.
2. L'Oreal Matte Morphose
Perfect for oily skin, makes the
pores look small. The Coverage is light but buildable. Drawback is
few shades, especially for darker skin
3. REVLON Camera Ready
light to medium coverage and leaves a very flawless finish.
