WINNER ANNOUNCED: My Summer Makeup Look + A #SosGiveaway!

1 year ago by Solenn

The winner of this giveaway will be revealed at the end of the entry 🙂

* * *

My kind of summer means suuper hot weather, tan skin, and trips to the beach. So this makeup look I did is pretty light, dewy kung dewy, and SO easy to do—I actually used just my fingers to apply and blend! You don’t need any brushes at all and you can actually do this when you’re in the car or pretty much anywhere, as long as you have some light and a mirror. I did my makeup up until my eyes, but if you’re in a rush, you can just go with the base, brows, cheeks, and lips.

Here’s a list of the products I used:


– NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Cuba and St. Moritz

– IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in Medium


– Tom Ford Glow Drops

– BLK Cosmetics Highlighter in Bronze

– BLK Cosmetics Contour in Amber

– Tom Ford Soleil Eye and Cheek Palette in Winter 2018 (used as highlighter)

– Shiseido Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush in Setsuko 07


– Shiseido Aura Dew in Cosmic 03 (used as eyeshadow)

– Chanel Eyeshadow Liner Kohl in Contour Clair (used as eyeliner)

– Benefit Roller Eye Bright Pencil

– Shiseido Kajal InkArtist in Tea House 01 (used on crease)

– Maybelline The Hypercurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara

BROWS (win these products in my giveaway below!)
