Ditch the red lipstick, colored contacts, false lashes, and dark eyeshadow colors this summer, because the look of the moment is fresh, natural, glowing make-up!
This is currently my go-to look, given how debilitating the heat is recently. Retouching is at the bottom of my priority list right now, and the last thing I want to have is smudged, cake-y makeup at the end of the day.
Used mostly Inglot for this tutorial! If you haven’t heard about the brand yet, it’s a Polish cosmetics brand that has been around for over 30 years. They just opened in the Philippines 2 years ago, but they already have about 400 stores scattered across the globe.
I love their products because they’re super high-quality (I mean, Inglot’s Mattifying Face Powder 3S is all I need to create an ideal canvas. I don’t have any patience for heavy foundation this summer!), and it’s always a plus to know that it’s a paraben-free and cruelty-free brand.
Anyhow, I won’t keep you all waiting! Here are the simple steps you can follow to achieve this fresh, summer look:
1) Apply a light shimmery eyeshadow on your whole eyelid.
I used Inglot’s Freedom System, which is like a little magnetic board that you can customize to your liking. I chose eyeshadow colors that can go from day to night! I know some people who just use a single Inglot palette for their whole face. Included in the Freedom System are blushes, lip colors, concealers, etc. The possibilities are endless!
(Only using the shimmery white and the 3-in-1 eyeshadow pan for this look, since the dark brown and black are more suitable for heavier evening make-up.)
2) Apply the same shimmer eyeshadow on the lower lashline.
3) Apply red-brown eyeshadow as if you’re lining your eyes. Smudge to blend.
4) With a medium brown, emphasize your crease from the end of your eye to your desired eyelid height. Smudge and blend.
5) Apply gold or yellow shimmer eyeshadow on the outer half of your lower lashline.
6) To add a bit of sparkle, use a gold liquid eyeliner on the inner corners of your eye.
This is my secret weapon this summer! The sparkles last the whole day!
7) Time for eyeliner! As usual, I’m going with a slightly downwards line for a sweet, more natural effect. Doing a cat eye may be too much for day time, but if it’s your signature style, why not?
8) Mascara! For once, I won’t be applying mascara on my lower lashes. You want the area under your eyes to be as shiny and glowing as possible!
I used Inglot’s Secret Volume Mascara and Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen. Something that I should note is the size of these products. They’re the perfect size to carry around with you, and it’s great that they can fit inside my small bags.
9) If there’s one lip color that I’ve been abusing right now, this is it. It’s a lip pencil-crayon hybrid that applies a little creamy but dries matte. The lasting power is amazing, and this is really saying something because I’m the laziest person when it comes to retouching lipstick.
My favorite Inglot Lip Pencil in #23. I can see myself using this everyday for the rest of my life.
Most, if not all of Inglot’s products don’t have names (the brand uses numbers). This being said, the Inglot staff/team unofficially name some of their products after the certain people. Don’t be surprised if you go into the store and they’ll be like “Try the Sarah Lahbati nude!” (Inglot Matte #417)
Hopefully, after this post, they’ll start calling this the “Tricia Gosingtian” pink! :D
10) Creating natural-looking flush is the goal, so lightly pat a pink blush on the apples of your cheeks.
One of the most pigmented blushes I’ve ever tried! It’s easy to go overboard with this, so make sure you tap away the excess blush from the brush before you put it on your cheeks.
11) Lastly, highlighter! This is Inglot Multicolor Highlighting Powder in #83. Everyone should own one of these! It’s the perfect everyday highlighter for that dewy, Korean-inspired look.
Voila! Selfie time! Sometimes this lip crayon registers darker on camera, but I love it nonetheless! It really goes well with the pink blush and highlighter. No color filter on these, except Camera360′s “natural” skin filter.
Hope this tutorial helps!
