This makeup look is perfect for the summer, whether you are running errands or going out at night and want a semi-natural look!
1. Wash your face
It is imperative to wipe away all of the grime that may be left on your skin, especially during the summer. Sweating and makeup don’t go well with each other, and there could be some residue left on your face. For a fresh start, wash up!
Moisturize your skin after so that the makeup can be applied easily and smoothly. I use the clear complexion moisturizer by Aveeno.
3. Fill in your eyebrows
Use your eyebrow pencil or pomade, and gently fill in your eyebrows. Do not go overboard though, because your eyebrows will not look natural.
4. Apply your favorite foundation
Be sure that it matches your skin color. My foundation tends to be a different shade because my face will naturally tan while I am outside. Along with this, make sure that the foundation blends in well with your neck. It doesn’t look natural when you can see where your makeup starts and finishes!
Take your concealer, mine is usually two shades lighter than my foundation, and apply liberally under your eyes. I usually make an upside down triangle, with the highest point by the corners of my nose. For more coverage, you can apply it around your eyebrows and on the middle of your nose too.
6. Bake & Contour
Grab your bronzer and bronze along your cheekbones, temples, ends of your nose and jawline. I actually used the brown from my Morphe eyeshadow palette and it was the perfect shade. After bronzing, use your favorite powder and gently dab it generously under your eyes, on the middle section of your nose, your middle forehead, and above your jawline/below your cheekbones. Once this is done, let the powder sit while you do the rest of your makeup.
7. Eyeshadow (neutrals)
I used my morphe palette, but any neutral palette will be just fine. Take a medium brown tone and blend it into your crease. Once you’ve done this, take a medium beige color and apply to your lid and in the corner of your eye apply a shimmer eyeshadow. The shimmer I used had a golden shade to it, which was perfect for summer.
Brush off any excess powder on your face and grab your favorite highlighter. I used the Anastasia Glow palette and stuck with the shades on the bottom row. After brushing off the excess powder, highlight the middle of your nose, your cheekbones, and your upper lip.
9. Eyeliner and mascara
Grab your eyeliner and lightly apply it on your lash line. I did a little line and extended it into a small cat eye and applied my mascara. Both are from the same brand, It cosmetics. I love these two and use them almost every day!
10. Setting spray
Once you’ve finished your makeup, set your face so that your makeup can withstand the high temperatures and sweat.
Your summer makeup look is ready to be shown off!
Applying highlighter at the end gives your face that dewy finish. If you’re looking for a more matte look you can skip the highlighter portion altogether.
