Tutorial: Color for Summer

Like it? Pin it on Pinterest here!

It's been a while since I've really done an intensely colourful makeup look, and with summer just around the corner, I thought now is a great time to bust out in a tropical, almost neon look.


I'm not sure where you could wear this. A summer cook-out? A BBQ party? Or just for the fun of it - why not? I might actually recreate this look for myself to wear out. Whenever I wear striking makeup, I get loads of compliments and people asking me if I got it done somewhere. So why not - dare yourself! You'll be surprised how much other people like it also.

Here's the tutorial:

Face & Cheek
L'Oreal Lumi foundation, MAC Beauty Powder in Play it Proper, Sleek MakeUp Blush By 3 in Lace,

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, MAC Chrome Yellow, MAC Vellum, Make Up Forever Nr. 92, Ben Nye Grande Lumiere eyeshadow palette (Azalea, Cosmic Violet, Chartreuse, Cosmic Blue), Lit Cosmetics eye glitters (Peacock, Material Girl, Purple Rain, Farrah), Lit Cosmetics glitter base, Catrice black gel eyeliner, L'Oreal Voluminous False Lashes mascara, Amazine Shine Lashes Nr. 47, KIKO eye pencil Nr. 411 (also applied on waterline)

    I think that the lips should not have been a nude color. It should have been a medium pink

  14. This is gorgeous i love it the colors,


  15. Divine! Cute creation, fits well for a summer make up look.

  16. Hi Julia, puderst du deine Augen ab bevor du den NYX Jumbo Pencil benutzt oder gibst du den direkt auf die Foundation?
    Die Farben sind super schön leuchtend, genau solche suche ich schon lange. Also muss ich wohl doch bei MAC kaufen ...

I life in germany and all I could find was a couple of theater make-up supplyers. pretty expensive too. around 90Euro for the Grande Lumiere eyeshadow palette. Would be awesome if you can help me.
