Light Summer Glow Makeup Tutorial
A Bombshell Makeover by The Contour Queen
After yesterday’s major makeover by Cara, I thought I’d share a little bit more of a typical daytime look for me these days.
POND’S Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream, Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, Sonia Kashuk brush, Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer, Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation, Tata Harper Lip and Cheek Tint, e.l.f. Smudge Pot, Stila Smudge Stick, Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil, Shu Uemura Lash Curler, Essie Under Where?
I hate the feeling of my makeup melting on my face, so I try to keep it light and fresh in the summertime! The boys and I are outside as much as possible and Raleigh has been hit with a punishing heat wave. My favorite way to “lighten up” my liquid foundation is to mix it with a moisturizer. I grabbed my POND’S Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream, dabbed a bit on the back of my hand and squeezed one 1/2 pump of my liquid foundation into it, and mixed it together.
If you are new to this little trick, it may take a few tries to figure out the right ratio of face cream to liquid foundation. For this look I was going for a very sheer finish, so I used almost 3x the face cream than the foundation.
Mix together and apply.
I went a little heavier on the brows than I usually do with my Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil (shade: Taupe). Since the lower lid is left completely bare, I thought that would balance out a slightly bolder brow without looking overly done.
I am loving Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. It adds volume and definition without falling flat an hour after application. Apply a few coats of your favorite mascara, whatever that may be!
For lips and cheeks, I just did a touch of Tata Harper’s Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Sweet. It’s the perfect amount of a subtle pink.
Hit the high parts of your cheekbones with a highlighter! I used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light.
And that’s it! No finishing powder, no bronzer, just a light summer glow that is sheer and breathable!
