Summer is the time I love for a soft glow at night with my makeup. Subtle eye makeup and soft liner with a shimmer and a highlight on my checks. I like to finish with a distinct summer lip color either bright pink or sheer coral.
I use a variety of Cosmetics lines’ makeup to create this look. I love to mix and match my Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown products to create this look.
I also use specific brushes to apply and achieve the Summer Evening Glow!
I start with the new Moisture Surge Sheertint Hydrator by Clinique as my summer foundation base. This fabulous tinted moisturizer has great coverage, SPF 25 and best of all sweat and humidity resistant. I apply this with a light coverage as it extends well you can use your fingers, a sponge or I buff it with Clinique’s buffing brush.
I love to add a dab of Clinique Line smoothing touch on concealer in light medium under eyes to cover circles. Apply small dots and then pat with sponge or concealer brush to blend.
I have chosen two Estee Lauder shadows that have a subtle sheen. Apply Cheeky Pink brilliant all over lid up to bone as base, then Decadent Cooper brilliant in crease and corner of lid. I like to use my Estee Lauder contour and shadow brushes.
I have chosen Bobbi Brown’s Perfectly Defined Gel liner in scotch since its soft but shimmers slightly perfect for day or night. My favorite mascara is Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye in black since it lifts, thickens, and defines my lashes. Totally competes my eye look for a Summer Glow!
The base I have used MS Sheertint gives a sheer soft color with a slight glow. To accent my cheeks, I use Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing powder in Santa Barbara, which is a fabulous pinky peachy color, great for all skin tones. Applying to cheek bones in a sweeping motion with my Estee Lauder Blush brush.
On top of cheek bone, I use Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder in Heat Wave to highlight. Using my Clinique big bronzer brush to apply on an angle.
These two products are the tie in to enhance this Summer Evening Glow look!
Finally, Lips here is where you get to play and create your signature on this look!
Lips can be tough now with mask wearing so choosing a light gloss or balm is one option. One option I love is Clinique Moisture Surge Pop Lip Balm in Goji Berry, or for a gloss I adore Bobbi Brown’s Crushed oil-infused lip gloss in Free Spirit. I add a little definition
with a liner to bring out my lips. Clinique’s quickliner in Figgy is perfect for either color since it’s a neutral lip liner.
For those of us who love color for Summer and more of a lipstick, I lined lips first to set the lipstick. My favorite liner is Bobbi Brown’s lip liner in Rum Raisen such a great neutral but perfect for all skin types.
My two choices in lipstick are either Bobbi Brown Lux Lip in Neutral Rose or Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Unrequited.
There you have it a Summer Evening Glow look to dine in, dine out or just have some fun at home.
