Favorite Summer NAILS & MAKEUP

My favorite summer makeup is exotic dark eyeliner mixed with a white shimmer shadow. I like to pair that with a pale pink, neutral shimmery lip. I never tan my face so I use bronzer and a shimmering skin perfector for a dewy sun kissed look.

FACE - How to get my look:

First I apply Coconut Oil all over my face. I then apply Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup SPF 20. I use the Almay in the summer and Garnier Anti-Aging BB Cream in the winter.

Next I apply Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller (sheer tint) under my eyes in a tapping motion to conceal my dark circles.  

I then apply Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (opal) to the top of my cheekbones for a dewy, youthful glow.

Next I use Physicians Formula Airbrushing Bronzer. I always use full sunscreen on my face so my body is much darker than my face. This bronzer works perfectly to even out my skin tone. I apply it with a makeup sponge to get a smooth, even finish.

The lip color that I am wearing is Revlon ColorStay Overtime SoftFlex (forever pink). 

Another similar lip color that I love is Nivea "A Kiss of Shimmer" with SPF 10.

 EYES - How to get my look:


First I curl my eyelashes. I then apply Liquid Eyeliner in small strokes until desired look is achieved. Do not try to draw the full line all at once. I start on the outside and work my way to the inner corner. Draw the top line thicker on the outer corner, and thinner on the inside corner. Extend the wing then apply lightly to bottom lash line.

Use a slightly damp Q-tip and wipe across the top of your eyeliner to correct any mistakes.

Next I apply eyeshadow to the inner corner of my eyes and across the lid. The white shadow is a great trick for hiding darkness around the eye.

I also apply the shadow under my eyebrows to open up my eyes and create a lifting appearance.

A dab of white eyeshadow on the cupids bow of your upper lip, and the center of your bottom lip, will create a pouty, full look.

 I fill in my eyebrows with Maybelline Ultra Brow (dark brown).

I now trace over the same eyeliner line with my Covergirl Ink It Pencil. This darkens the line and creates clean smudge-proof look. My eye makeup does not budge until I take it off with makeup remover. I also fill in my waterline. This will give your eyes that intense, sexy look.

Last, I apply my favorite waterproof mascara.

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes - Blackest Black Waterproof

For my nails I applied the Revlon Spirit (pure white) and then put a coat of Revlon Allure (light yellow tint). Using a white base is a great way to make a sheer nail color pop.
