“Summer Simple” Makeup Tutorial: 3 Minutes, 5 Products

The lazy, hazy days of Summer are nearly upon us and as the temperatures and humidity rise you probably feel that your winter makeup routine needs an update. I designed this look for the upcoming Summer days when you want to feel pretty and put together, but only have a a few minutes to do so. 

Before
3 minutes later...Summer Simple!
  1. Apply one pump of Kryolan’s Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15  all over face with fingers. Allow to set for 20 seconds. (I am wearing shade T4.)
  2. Using a large, fluffy brush (like Real Techniques”Powder Brush” $10 at Nkd) apply Alima Pure Mineral Cosmetics Bronzer in “Seychelles” lightly, focusing on where the sun would naturally “kiss” your face- cheeks, forehead, bridge of nose) then brush a little over your neck and décolleté to ensure an even, natural blend.
  3. Apply a small dot of Kryolan’s Lip&Cheek in “Petunia” on the apples of your cheeks, blending in an upward circular motion. Then apply a small dot to your lips and blend with your finger or a lip brush.
  4. Using your finger or a small eye brush, apply “Paris” mineral shadow by Alima Pure on your lid, blending slightly into your crease. Use a little on the inner corners of your eyes for added luminosity.
  5. Finish your look with a coat of Blinc Mascara on top and bottom lashes. (Won’t smudge and gentler on lashes then a waterproof mascara!)

You’re “good to glow!”  But keep scrolling if you want a chance to win one of the products mentioned in this easy tutorial…

Get your bronze on.

Tip for when the sun goes down: To create a slightly more dramatic eye, use the bronzer in your crease to create more dimension and depth.
