BASE: L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation “Cappucino” (I prefer to mix this foundation in with a liquid illuminator to sheer the coverage down just a bit.)
CONCEALER: The same foundation mixed in with a lighter one from Elizabeth Arden, lightly applied to the centre points of the face including right underneath my eyes.
POWDER: RCMA No Color Powder “Translucent”
BLUSH: NIP&FAB Contour Palette “DARK” – Orange Shade
BRONZER: NIP&FAB Contour Palette “DARK” (to add contrast)
EYESHADOW: by Cargo Cosmetics – Unfortunately, this eyeshadow came from their California Throwback collection which is now discontinued. This type of turquoise (green with blue reflects) colour is a very universal and versatile shade, I feel. You can find this in a lot of other palettes (and singles) that are currently available on most online beauty department stores or at your local drugstore. It may also be worth checking your makeup archives for an eyeshadow like this.
MASCARA: PoundWorld – So I wanted to add just a touch of Cher vibes to this look. You can certainly go crazy with this step as I think it would work with this eyeshadow very well and really make the eyes pop (as if they don’t already) – but I was just scared 🤓
LINER: PoundWorld (Only to fill in the gaps on my lashline. I wanted my lashes to appear thicker and fuller yet clean whilst making sure that there was no eyeliner in sight.)
LIPS: If you’ve read any other of my makeup posts, you’d know that my go-to nude lip combo would be a brown lip liner, pink/nude lipstick with a touch of concealer dabbed on the centre of my lips. However, I wanted something slightly different and more exotic so I replaced my normal concealer with an orange corrector/concealer to use as my lip pigment, topped off with a lipgloss and that became the look!
Brown Lipliner: MUA Brown Brow Pencil “DARK”
Nude/Pink Lipstick: Primark
Orange Corrector/Concealer: L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer
I know this look is pretty, um, colourful but I’ve recently been obsessing over this turquoise shimmery hue as a focal point in a makeup look with a summery influence in mind. And I’m loving it!
I would love to read your thoughts on this look in the comments below and/or maybe share a colour that you’ve recently been loving as your eyeshadows this summer!
Hope this brightening makeup look gives you a little inspo towards the late summer ^-^
Thank you all so much for stopping by The Belper!
Lots of love,
