It Feels Like Summer!

Winter in Los Angeles is awesome! It's the beginning of February and it's about 70-80 degrees outside and oh boy, it does feel like Summer! We do get a little bit of rain from time to time, but for the most part, the weather has been warm and sunny. I'm still able to wear shorts, a light t-shirt and a pair of sandals. I love it!

That's why I was inspired to do this Summer makeup look. I wore it in my Super Bowl Lace and Denim outfit post. It's a fresh and pretty look with a  pop of color on the upper lash line and a little bit on the lower lash line which adds a fun touch to the look.



The Summer colors I used are:
  • Gold eyeshadow- Gives a beautiful sheen on the lids, especially when light hits it.
  • Purple eye liner- It's a great pop of color to brighten up any look ( you can use any bright color you prefer). 
  • Coral/Orangey lips- What's more Summer than a gorgeous coral lips. I'm using my new Wet n Wild Mega last lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold. Gaaahhh...It's such a beautiful coral/orange-y color. I've been wearing it for the past 3 days.













Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold
I will have a review, photos and swatches on the new Wet n Wild Mega Last lipsticks very soon. 




Get The Look
(It's so easy to do)

Face:
  • Reviva Labs Face primer applied after moisturizer. It makes foundation apply smoother.
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42 applied using a stippling brush all over the face for a flawless finish.
  • Almay Eyebase/Concealer in Medium applied under the eyes and blemishes.
  • MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Deep dusted all over the face with a fluffy face brush to set the makeup and prevent it from moving.
Eyes:
  • Prime the lids with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion. Use a small amount and blend with finger.
  • Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland eyeshadow palette. With a wet synthetic shader brush, dip it on Oraculum (gold shadow) and apply all over the lids passing a little bit above the crease. Blend the edge with a fluffy blending brush to get rid of harsh edges.
  • Physicians Formula gel/cream liner in Hazel Eyes. Use the purple gel liner and apply a thick on the upper lash line with an angled liner brush. Apply on outer half of the lower lash line.
  • Set the liner with Underland (purple eyeshadow) from Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland eyeshadow palette using an angled liner brush. It will make the purple liner more bright and intense.  
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil in Zero on the water line.
Cheeks:
  • Milani Mineral blush in Mai Tai dusted on the apple of the cheeks with a stippling brush and blend up to the temples in circular motion.
Lips:
  • Blistex lip balm all over the lips to moisturize it.
  • Wet n Wild Mega Last Lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold.



I will update later with photos of the makeup products I used. 


I hope you like this look and thanks for stopping by!
