Summer is here even though it's been really cold and rainy in my neck of the woods. But, regardless of what the weather is right now, it's going to get HOT.
The makeup trend for Spring/Summer 2009 is all about keeping your look soft and sweet. A lot of pastels are used. So, I thought I'd share with you a recent look I wore that landed me a lot of compliments from clients, friends and family. Everyone wanted to know what I was wearing, so here goes...
*All mineral makeup by PRIIA Cosmetics
First, I wore a light application of Essential Cover Mineral Foundation in GOLDEN BEIGE 2 (my current color) mixed together with a sprinkling of Vacation In A Jar mineral bronzer which gave me a radiant, sun-kissed look. Next, I applied a gentle sweep of CheekWhisperz Loose Mineral Blush in DUSTY ROSE along my cheek bones. Then, I added a soft 'pop' of color in CheekWhisperz DELICATE PINK blush on the apples of my cheeks.
For my eyes, I applied PEARL BERRY Mineral Satin Shadow all over the lids up to the brow bone. In the crease and on the lid, I blended in JADED LADY Mineral Matte Shadow. On top of that, I blended CHILLED GRAPES Mineral Satin Shadow into the crease and outter corners of my eyes. I topped off this eye look with smudging into the lash line ROYAL PLUM Eyelinez eye liner.
I lined my lips with ROSY MAUVE Liplinez lip liner and then applied ABOUT2POUT Natural Lip Gloss in PINK GELATO.
Voila! An easy, yet soft and beautiful Summer makeup look that took me all of 5 to 7 minutes to complete. Oh, and by the way, that's NOT me in the picture above. But I guess you've already figured that one out. I had forgotten to take a picture of myself wearing this look, so I sketched it out using the actual colors (sans foundation & bronzer).
