Summer is the perfect season for a glowy, kissed-by-the-sun look! You know what I mean: soft smokey eyes, bronzer, highlighter, long lashes and sultry lips. Some say this should be easily achieved with just a couple of products. But that’s only if you’re already tanned, were born with long lashes, and you only need a few creamy sticks to get that look (Kim K, I’m lookin’ at you!).
For us regular people with imperfections, not tanned and not blessed with perfect facial features, we need a little more work (and a shitload of products) to make it happen.
So this is what I did the other day, I used my imagination and half of my make-up products to get a flawless skin, covered in bronzer and highlighter. And I couldn’t help but add a little eyeliner and a burgundy lipstick. Because, you know, why not? 😀
And let me be honest with you: whenever I do this kind of blog posts, to show you make-up looks, they never look as well on camera as they do in real life. And no, it’s not the camera’s fault, and neither is the lighting.
It’s just that you need to apply much more product that you normally would. A.k.a, I’m super happy with the pictures from this post, but I wouldn’t dare to go outside with that face! Trust me, it’s super noticeable when you go overboard with contouring or if you have 3 layers of foundation on.
So here’s my point: if you want to do a make-up look just for pictures, go crazy, girl! That’s the best tip I can give you. ‘Cause otherwise, it doesn’t really show up as well on camera. You could edit them, of course, but it’s not the same thing and sometimes it looks too fake.
Anyways, I hope you like this look! I’ve listed all the products I used below. Some of them are new entries in my make-up bag, and I’ll tell you more about them in future posts. And some are my staple items that I use all the time.
P.S. The flower crown is from H&M, I got it last week and it was super cheap. I know, it’s mainstream, lol, but don’t judge. I think it’s pretty, and it’s pink, so I had to buy it, okay? 😂 #LanaDelReyWannabe
