Summer Makeup Tutorial

Today’s summer makeup look is inspired by the beach. Using blue and sandy hued eyeshadows, I created a light and shimmery look that incorporates just the right amount of bold color. For details on how to create this summer makeup look, it’s surprisingly easy, keep reading!

Step 1. Create a flawless canvas to work with by applying your favorite concealer, foundation, and brow filler.

Step 2. Apply a white eyeliner over your entire eyelid and on your waterline.

Step 3. Brush a sandy, shimmery beige from your brow bone to your crease.

Step 4. Dab a shimmery blue shadow onto your lids (on top of the white eyeliner) and blend it into the sandy, shimmery beige.

Step 5. Smudge a shimmery gold shadow or eye pencil along your lower lash line.

Step 6. Line your upper lash line with blue eyeliner.

Step 7. Apply a black (or blue!) mascara to your upper and lower lashes.

Step 8. Apply blush and highlighter to your cheeks.

Step 9. Apply a shimmery nude lip gloss. The shinier, the better!
