Easy Summer Makeup-

It’s almost summer, meaning I start focusing less on covering every flaw, and more on being comfortable! I basically live in easy and quick looks throughout the summer. Here’s one of them! :)

1. I start each eye look by priming my lids. I like to keep my eyeshadows neutral in color and easy to apply. Here, I’m wearing a mixture of Sidecar and Buck by Urban Decay (Naked palette), with Lorac’s 01 Brown eyeliner in the water line and smudged along the upper lashline. Waterproof mascara is the way to go in the summer, as it will stay in place all day and is sweat proof (ew)! I’m using Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara.

2. WEAR SUNSCREEN!! For skin, I like to keep it nice and simple. Mixing liquid foundation with moisturizer will give a sheer coverage and even out the skin tone (a tinted moisturizer or BB cream will work too!). Here, I’m using that technique with my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 110. To add a little color to my ghostly complexion, I used Bare Minerals Faux Tan applied to where the sun would naturally hit (tops of the cheeks, nose, forehead, chin). 

3. If I choose to wear a lip color at all, it’s always one that’s light, moisturizes, and stains my lips. Since the eyes are so neutral, I love playing around with bold and bright lip colors. The one I’m using is Urban Decay Super Saturated in Crush. Lip colors are an easy way to turn a day look into a night look. 

4. Done!

Happy (almost) summer!
