California-holiday skin game is still going strong ; so I am enjoying having tanned skin the good burst of vitamin D has cleared my skin up along with some at-home-microderm. I find my ‘summer skin’ always likes less makeup….everywhere. Keep it simple for a day-to-day look such as this, and you can do this easily in under 5 minutes I promise you ; No cut-creasing, no intricate buffing or blending or eyeliner-ing. This makeup look is pretty much done with fingers and hands, I just used 1 powder brush and one basic eyeshadow brush.
I kept my skin really bare with one of the most best lightest bases I have used recently which is the BareMinerals Rescue complexion. It is a really natural tinted gel-cream so for any areas that needed a bit more ‘help’, the Amazing concealer came to the resuce. This is one of the most-pigmented concealers I have ever used! Absolutely knocks out redness, blemishes and dark circles with a pin-prick amount of product. (my review)
I warmed up my skin with a sweep of the Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer which is perfect for that summer glow and enhancing your tan, or faking it. I mixed (with a stippling brush) the Stila cream convertible colour with the Benefit High beam to add a lustrious radiance on the cheeks ; I always like to use as much cream products as possible when I want a lovely natural skin finish, powder on powder on pwder can look a little cakey and feel heavy on the skin. This base is all about being breathable and light!
I wanted to keep the eyes simple with a wash of gold eyeshadow with my firm favourite KIKO colour-sphere in ‘Golden Bronze’. These eyeshadows are baked so you can use them wet or dry and they give a lovely metallic finish. I also brushed on a teeny dusting of this over my cheekbones for added bronze glow to my skin. Eyes were enhanced with the Crownbrush chubby eye pencil in Dark Chocolate (The ONE!) and a touch of KIKO kohl eyeliner in plum (I think. I’ve used this so much I’ve worn off all the writing..). I just smudged these under the lower lash line and a touch on top.
Finish off with a sweep through of Benefit Rollerlash and a quick slick of Dior Lipglow and this simple makeup look is finished and good-to-go. The beauty of it, is that it looks ‘done’ but effortless and easy for even non-makeup-ers.
