Summer make-up look

It’s been very hot in the past few days here in Slovenia. Luckily I like summer and I don’t mind high temperatures. But refreshing rain showers (let’s say during the night) would be nice from time to time. As I said I don’t mind high temperatures, I just have to adjust to such conditions. One of the adjustments is make up. :cute: I know that a lot of girls/women/ladies don’t wear make up during the summer. I understand why (it’s hot and the make up melts), but I’m not one of them. I wear make up all year long. I like make up and I think a light touch of beauty products makes me look prettier and healthier. :silly: And with the right products make up doesn’t melt from my skin. Yes, I get greasy skin and my forehead is shiny. (Well, whose doesn’t in such hot weather?) But I don’t get upset about that. I just blot my forehead with a tissue and that’s it. Enough of babbling, here’s the summer make up look I wore yesterday.

Summer make up look by Maestra

I’ve been wearing variations of this look for the past few days. It’s very easy to do. You only need a few minutes to do it. And it’s still colorful.

How to do it?

What to do is writen in black. What I used and my comments are in grey.

  • Prep your skin with a light foundation and concealer. I used IsaDora’s SunProtection Gel Bronzer in the photo above.
  • Apply a light golden eyeshadow all over your eyelids. I used Manhattan’s Shampaign (from the Luxopolis LE) and Essence’s Mystic Lemon eyeshadows. You can put a primer underneath the eyeshadows. I didn’t use one.
  • Apply a brown eyeliner on the top eyelid. I really like Manhattan’s waterproof dip eyeliner in Tenderbrown. It’s waterproof but it’s not smudge-proof.
  • Apply a green eyeliner to the bottom eyelid. Apply it really close to the bottom lashes. I used Gosh’s Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Lemon Soda and Sephora’s Waterproof Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear in 10 Green. I love these pencils!!! So far I have two of them and I need more! I applied the same jumbo pencil on my waterline.
  • Curl your lashes and apply your favourite mascara.
  • Next on the list are the cheeks. Use whatever blush and/or bronzer you like. I’m wearing Sleek’s Rose Gold, Manhattan’s Mousse Rouge in Apricot and Barry M’s Rose blushes in the photo above. I love Sleek’s Rose Gold for the summer. It’s supposed to be an almost dupe for the Nars Orgasm blush. I have both and I’m telling you, they are close, but definitely not dupes. Rose Gold is more shimmery and it’s more pigmented, while Orgasm is its shy cousin. I’d say that Rose Gold is OK for summer. Because of the shimmer I’m not going to use it in the winter. Orgasm is nice for all year long. I’ll probably write a separate post on my favourite blushes and bronzers. I just need to find some time to do it. :hmm:
  • The very last thing is lipstick. Although I’m not a pink person, I like nice fresh pink lips for the summer. For me it’s very hard to find a nice pink lipstick that looks really nice and pink on me. My latest addition to “my lipstick collection” is Lancome’s 342 Darling Rose from the Color Fever line. It was half off, that’s why I bought it and I really like it!

Here’s a photo of (almost) all the products. I forgot to include the Lancome lipstick.

  1. Joj, sploh znaš zamočit MU look? :wink: Oči so mi izjemno všeč. Zadnje čase se zelo uspešno branim nakupov make upa (aja, lakov sem notri ne štejem :whistle: ), ampak veš kaj pa res pogrešam v zbriki? Svetlo zelen eyeliner. Tega še rabim, potem bom pa kompletna. :yes: Bom pogledala malce za tele Sephorine jumbo svinčnike, ko si jih tako fajn pohvalila. :yes:

    • Oja, znam zamočiti in sem že pokazala svoje zmazke. :yes:
      Sicer pa hvala! :rose:
      Gosh mi je bil všeč ravno zaradi velike izbire odtenkov svinčnikov. Trenutno se ne spomnim, katera znamka, ki se dobi pri nas, bi imela kak lep/dober svetlo zelen svinčnik. Morda Make Up Factory ali Bourjois? :undecided:

      • Jap, ravno na tidve sem pikirala, bom šla na lov naslednji mesec. Ta mesec sem dala že sramotno veliko denarja za lake. Raje ne omenim cifre. Res je odvisnost. :biggrin: Pomoje bom od Bourjois vzela, sem z njihovimi izdelki zelo zadovoljna. Čeprav svinčnikov pa res še nisem sprobala, vendar upam, da bodo tudi tako lepo zdržali kot senčke. :)

  2. Lahkoten, poleten MU :wub: ampak v oči mi je pa padla tudi verižica (kačji pastir). Čudovita je!! :wink:

  3. This looks is brilliant, you are incredibly talented and beautiful with it. I love the subtle green underneath your eyes, it really brings them out and looks fantastic.

    I adore your blog and will definitly return to read more of your posts! I wish you all the luck in the world with it.

    Take care,
    Voe.

  4. What a gorgeous look!

  5. Beautiful summer makeup! I love also Gosh Lemon Soda Eyeliner.

    I do the complete job also in summer: I hate having a greasy skin so I wear my Essence Clear & Matte foundation + Essence mattyfing Powder + a healthy blush (Bourjois are my favourite) and I have a beautiful skin with them. I love bright eyeshadows and eye liners in summer or if I wear a more neutral eye makeup, I wear bright pink/fuschia lipstick.

  6. I’m one of those lazy summer women – SPF + something to mattify it and that is more or less it. :blush:

  7. Zelo summer – svež make uo. Všeč mi je. Mogoče veš za kakšno alternativo Gosh svinčniku?

    Jaz poleti senčk skoraj ne uporabljam ker imam premastne veke. Za obrobo oči največkrat uporabim enega od KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow (obstojni) ali pa zdaj enega od novih Beauty UK linerjev (zelo obstojni) + maskara. Na obraz si obvezno nanesem eno od EDM podlag (ki vsaj malo in za kratek čas omili svetenje kože), na lička nanesem kakšno rožnato ali coral rdečilo (uporabljam Sleek, Deborah Hi tech, Art deco, Nars), na usta pa včasih gloss včasih rožnato, coral ali fuksija šminko (posežem po čim bolj obstojnih – uporabljam pa MAC, Sleek, Deborah, Revlon, tudi kakšna od Bourj. ali Maybel.)…

    Tvoja šminka je tudi meni zelo všeč – a to znižanje še kje traja :)

    • Huh, alternativa za Gosh … Kar se dobi pri nas: všeč so mi Make Up Factory svinčniki, tudi ArtDeco niso slabi, prav tako Bourjois. pri vseh firmah priporočam, da preveriš, kako mehki so točno določeni odtenki, ker tudi to variira. Sicer obožujem še Urban decay svinčnike. :wub:
      Šminko sem kupila v Mullerju v BTCju. Ne vem, ali gre iz prodaje. V BTCju je bila zadnja na polici. Morda jo najdeš še kje drugje.
      Beauty UK linerja imam dva in sta res dobra. :thumb:

  8. Zelena je ena od tvojih najljubših?! Lep make up vendar bi bil lepši v kakšnih vijoličnih tonih, da poudari učke…

    • Pravzaprav imam rada skoraj vse barve, imam pa obdobja, ko preferiram kakšno barvo. Trenutno je vijolična bolj nizko na prioritetni lestvici. Vijolično sem oboževala pozimi. Zdaj imam rada oranžno, zeleno, temno modro, koralno … Pri vijolični na očeh moram biti precej pazljiva, ker se veliko vijoličnih ne razumem najbolje z mojo poltjo. Lahko pa točno ta look narediš s katerokoli barvo za spodnji liner. Vsekakor se bom potrudila in v bližnji prihodnosti ustvarila še kaj z vijolično. ;)
      Hvala za tvoj komentar, Malin!

  9. Most of the time I wear colored liner or just a gold eyeshadow and a lot of mascara. Also, I set my foundation with Essence sun club highlighter, it makes my skin look so pretty :biggrin: On lips I usually wear hot pinks, fuschia or orange colors.

  10. Všečno :wub: lahkotno in celo malce glamurozno, super :thumb:
