Looking for inspiration for natural-looking makeup looks?
If you know me, you know that I like to keep my makeup looks relatively simple and hassle-free. During the summer I keep it even more simple by forgoing mascara altogether and I usually just wear eye shadow for special nights on the town.
This spring/summer I'll be wearing new products from Essence Cosmetics and NARS. When I'm out and about during the summer, I'm usually wearing my sunglasses, so I tend to skip the eye makeup except for a little mascara. For a day look I fill in eyebrows, apply a tinted moisturizer (I use Simply Vera by Vera Wang Skin Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer), and brush the Essence Sun Club All-in-One Bronzing Highlighter all over my face. I love how the bronzer gives my face a shimmery glow. To add a little color, I'll put on a nice, creamy lipstick. I'm wearing Essence "On the Catwalk" in the photos below...
For an evening look I'll put on fake eyelashes and wear black eyeliner to add a touch of drama to my eyes. I really like the Essence "Stays No Matter What" waterproof eye pencil that doubles as a eye shadow and is supposed to stay on for up to 16 hours. For shimmer and color I'm wearing lip gloss from NARS' new summer collection - "Priscilla" for a little sassiness and "Sixties Fan" for a more subdued look.
