Hello readers, summer is officially here and I have a summer inspired makeup look for you today.I think that all the colors and the textures I have used here are perfect for the season. This is a sophisticated makeup look that I would probably wear for special occasions.  Actually I already have a clear idea in mind of what this perfect occasion should be… I can already imagine myself at a summer party in a nice restaurant close to the beach and I would wear a 100% white outfit that will compliment this makeup look perfectly and vice versa. Ok let’s stop dreaming!!!
To prepare my skin I moisturized it with a SPF 50 daily moisturizer followed by a primer.
For the makeup I applied a long lasting foundation with my fingers to blend it well. I applied one layer only so I got medium coverage kept a very natural look. (read my revie on Lancôme teint idole 24h foundation HERE)
That is the part that took me most of the time so I will explain it step by step.
1-I used a brightening concealer under my eye to illuminate that area.
2-On my lids area I applied a concealer to minimize the natural darkness I have. Using the concealer first here will also help the color of the eyeshadow I am going to use next to stand out more and to last longer.
3-For the eyeshadow I decided to use a creamy texture that is a must have for the summer as it stays on the lids for a very long time. I chose a perfect color for the season I think; a beautiful bright  teal. Teal is not a new color in cosmetics but it is the first time I have seen such a beautiful one, so of course I had to get it and create a look with it.
4- Then I applied another teal color, a dark teal this time as my eyeliner on my lower and upper lash line.
5-For my lashes I used a lengthening and defining waterproof mascara .
6- As a lot of work had already been done on the eye so I wanted to keep my eyebrows as simple as possible which is why I just groomed them with a clear eyebrow gel.

On my cheeks only I used lightly a bright beautiful orange matte blush which I enjoy using mostly in the summer time as it gives me a very natural healthy glow. If you have dark skin you should absolutely not be scared of this color as it looks very natural on our skin tone especially if you have some orange undertone in your complexion like myself..  Just above the cheeks I used a golden/coral  highlighter to enhance this glow that we are all looking for during the summer time.
Pink works for any season so here I chose a bright baby pink fom the brand Mavala in Miami
In order to keep the main focus on the eyes I decided to wear a nude lipstick as it works with pretty much every looks.

Hope you enjoy the look.
