Summer Romance

Summer is here and the block is H-O-T! While the temps are continuously rising and hopefully so are the dinner offers. If it’s a first date, five year anniversary or guy-spying at a late afternoon wedding, romantic makeup is the way to go!

No matter your skin tone, begin by blending a liquid foundation with a sun protecting moisturizer and apply throughout the face and neck. Use a concealer brush to conceal hyper-pigmentation and redness along the under eye, nasal folds and along the outer creases of the lips and mouth. Meld your concealer and foundation blend with a moistened sponge for a luminous complexion.

Sweep a wash of pale pink blush onto the apples of the cheeks and throughout the temples to give the illusion of a romantic pink cheek.

Stick with minimalist eyes to achieve this look. Honey toned sistas should begin with shimmering pale tones. Toffee to coffee complexioned sistas’ should opt for subtle coppers while my chocolate girlfriends should select deep bronze shades. Apply a thin eye liner along the upper lash line to create subtle definition. Sweep mascara onto the upper and lower lashes.
Make lips the center of attention with a fruity watermelon or strawberry pink lipstick or gloss.

Where will you wear this look?

  1. I’ve tried this trick with MAC’s Select foundation and it’s worked wonders. I love it.
